Ask a Disney Question: Closing Dates for Star Tours Refurbishment.
This question come from Stephanie G., who asks “I heard the Star Tours ride at Hollywood Studios is under construction. When is it scheduled to open again?
Stephanie, thanks for reading Chip and Co and for your question. Star Tours is scheduled to close for refurbishment in October 2010. It will be reopened in 2011. There is no official date for the reopening. We’ll keep everyone posted, but projections are pretty far out at this point, so don’t count on it being open in early 2011. Star Tours, which debuted in 1987, will be redone in a high definition, Disney Real-D 3D screen, with an improved motion simulator. It will feature Jar Jar Binks and a podracing scene similar to that shown in the Phantom Menace.
