Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 9th, 1987. Star Tours opens in Tomorrowland (occupying the space where Adventure Thru Inner Space once stood). At a cost of cost of $32 million, It is the park's first attraction not to use Disney-designed imagery. The celebration lasted for 60 hrs. Guests could pay one-time admission into the park & get their hand stamped & return from Fri to Sun. Guests were also given a Star Tours Watch when they entered. The attraction featured the voices of Paul Reubens (a.k.a. Pee Wee Herman) as Rex the bumbling pilot droid, Anthony Daniels (pictured top right) as the voice of C-3PO, Steve Gawley as Red Leader, Dennis Murren as one of three ILMers (visible in a Maintenance Bay window), & Brian Cummings as the Vid-Screen announcer. Did you like the original star tours? Do you miss it? What are your favorite Star Tours memories?

I started dating my wife in the line of star tours back in 1990 when I was seventeen when she came over to the states us as a family friend. Yes I really love star tours. When we got to take our kids over there I told them the story and that if it wasn't for Disneyland they wouldn't be here. - AussiePirateKing  17.9 #8642 9:55AM
Awww. What a sweet story! Do you live over here now? - MacaronMerida  4739.7 #39 10:05AM
Awwwwww! How romantic! Where was your wife visiting from? Australia? - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 10:24AM
No we still live in Australia. I have tried many times to convince her that we should move but she just won't be in it. - AussiePirateKing  17.9 #8642 10:31AM
On a visit to the park with my mom and dad in 1987 (I was 6), we rode this for the first time. Apparently it was so realistic, I was convinced that we had landed on the moon of Endor and as we left the attraction I very quickly (albeit calmly) asked "How are we going to get back to our car?" My dad loves to tell that story to this day. - FunOnABun  19.3 #8282 8:58AM
That's a cute story. Great memory! - MacaronMerida  4739.7 #39 10:02AM
What a special memory! Disney magic always impresses me. Thank you for sharing that with us! - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 10:22AM
As always... Love your Day in Disney posts. Thank you! I miss all the old Tomorrow Land attractions but really like the ones also! The new Star Tours is great!!! - Boundin  920.8 #244 8:52PM
Thanks for the info. The one thing I miss the most is enjoying this with my mom. She isn't much of a fan of the new version. This was one of her favorites. Now she almost never wants to go on. :( - RickChavez  3685.6 #50 7:55AM
Awe! Do you know what was her favorite part of the old attraction? - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 8:28AM
I still miss Adventure Thru Inner Space. I remember the first time I went to DL and saw it had closed. It was a very sad moment. As for the old Star Tours, it really needed the upgrade since it was the same every time. I hope they do something similar to Soarin Over California. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #102 8:03AM
Interesting idea about soarin Mike. What locations would you like to be added? Or would you just like the order changed up? - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 8:37AM
Perhaps they could add more western states. The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley would be sweet. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #102 8:43AM
But it's soarin over "California" πŸ˜‰ would you change the name then too? - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 8:46AM
How about "Soarin Over America"? - ScooterMike  1963.0 #102 8:48AM
I've thought this too- change to different Ca locations or at least not have the Christmas parade all the time. - LilSterner  5828.4 #26 8:58AM
It would have a lot more possible location fly overs for sure, but idk if it would stick with DCAs over all theme. - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 8:59AM
Radiator Springs is modeled after Seligman, Arizona - ScooterMike  1963.0 #102 9:01AM
TouchΓ© Mike πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 9:08AM
I miss the pre-boarding video. Lol......I always cracked up seeing the lady with the giant bun on the side of her head. - HalfCaff  734.4 #324 8:18AM
It was soooooo eighties - ScooterMike  1963.0 #102 8:20AM
Oh my goodness! How did I forget about her! Thanks for the giggle! πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 9:46AM
Duchess_SMK I look forward to your daily "This Day in Disney History" Thank you very much for sharing the great history. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #511 8:21AM
BTW, I did like the Original Star Tours, but so glad they did an upgrade. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #511 8:23AM
You're so sweet. I'm happy you enjoy these! - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 10:25AM
I never got to see the old one, but star tours excites me every time, star wars was my favorite child hood movie! - madsdad  1868.2 #109 8:24AM
You never ride the original?! 😳 You poor thing you really were DL deprived huh? - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 11:47AM
Wow! Return any time between Fri and Sun? That seems almost unheard of these days. I did enjoy the original, but I think the newer version is much better bc of the element of surprise. Thanks Duchess! - misschurro  9890.1 #12 8:29AM
I don't think the parks could handle such a promotion now do you? I'd love to see one of those watches! I agree, I love all the different destinations now. - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 11:55AM
Amazing info especially since today is my Birthday! Now I know I share it with Tomorrow Land! πŸŽ‰ - ZeroLove  14.1 #9885 8:32AM
Happy Birthday! - hatgal76  452.2 #568 12:23PM
Happy birthday to you ZeroLove! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 12:30PM
Loved StarTours. At the time it was so different from other attractions. The new Star Tours is fantastic also. We like the picture in the Main St Railroad Station that shows the park on Star Tours opening day. - Tealtownfan  1171.9 #189 8:35AM
I was there. Thanks again for the excellent info Duchess. I have the commerative LE Star Wars Coin. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #251 8:49AM
I was not there when it opened, but later that summer!! I won't tell you how old I was but way old enough to remember, lol!! We were SO excited and my cousin from Europe was visiting us. We went there the very first thing in the morning, such a fun memory for my family!! Thanks for making me smile with this post, hope you have a wonderful day!! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  928.2 #242 8:57AM
I can vaguely remember Adventure Through Innerspace. I did like the original Star Tours but am liking the new version that has so many options. I miss Rex though. - LilSterner  5828.4 #26 9:00AM
I love Star Tours, but I also still miss Inner Space. Once when the rest of the rides had long lines and there was no line for Inner Space, my niece and I rode it over and over for about an hour, laughing our heads off the whole time! It's one of my best DL memories. - debbiev  1802.0 #114 9:25AM
One of my favorites! I miss Rex but I love being able to see the AT ATs on Hoth after the refurb - FoolishMortal138  791.8 #286 9:45AM
Ohmygad! My fav too!! Oh wait, you didn't say it was your fav. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ AT AT puppies - misschurro  9890.1 #12 9:48AM
I like the newer version of Star Tours...it's different almost every time, and I don't get "carsick" like I used to on the original. But I really miss Adventures thru Inner Space....I loved it! - Gia  802.2 #281 9:48AM
Hmmm. Maybe I should try this. Definitely remember the carsick feel! And not fondly! Hahaha. - MacaronMerida  4739.7 #39 10:04AM
Soo Cool! - Armenda  1186.0 #184 10:04AM
I definitely remember the Monsanto ride, which is how we referred to it. Did the old Star Tours. Haven't been on the new one though. If it won't make me sick, maybe I will try. - MacaronMerida  4739.7 #39 10:07AM
I rode it for the first time with my mother in 89, she doesn't do coasters and just about had a panic attack before boarding. I even asked the CM for her what it was like, his explanation couldn't calm her down. Reluctantly, she rode and ended up having the best time, we both still laugh about her near breakdown. I miss the original because my kid would ride it 10 times in a row and honestly believe we were not on Earth anymore. I do love the new version also...it was time. - Linzee  2136.8 #92 10:15AM
Wait. Im not your mom, am I?! Hahahaha. Sounds like me! - MacaronMerida  4739.7 #39 10:57AM
I like Mickey's space suit. I remember I cried like a baby before riding this the first time. I was so scared but I ended up liking it afterwards. - aidensmama  340.3 #808 10:34AM
love!!! and haha mickey's outfit! - OhanaPhoto  7105.4 #21 11:55AM
I was about to say the same thing :) - DisLUVney  677.5 #353 12:02PM
I don't remember riding the original, but I've been told I enjoyed it. - Lola027  452.7 #566 12:03PM
I'm loving Mickey's futuristic costume! - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #903 12:11PM
Teehee! Reminds me of aluminum foil! πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 6:36PM
Did not realize when I came for Grad Nite 87' that it was brand spank'n new! But I love the new adventures! - mrscttlemstr  317.2 #937 12:16PM
I was there for one of the Grad Nights in 87. - MermaidHunter  170.2 #2574 12:50PM
My Mom always asked "So where did we go exactly?" LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.8 #52 12:19PM
I miss the little robot cars on the tracks above your head while waiting in line. And Rex. But I still love the new one. - Fanatic4Disney  268.5 #1326 1:11PM
i was there for all 60 hours and still have my watch - tazzmike68  3.9 #27347 1:26PM
Oh no way?! That's amazing! I'd love to see it! You should post a pic of it! - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 6:35PM
STAR TOURS 1.0 The original. Before the idea of star tours disney had envision a ride based on their Black Hole space movie but was scraped.Disney partnered with Lucas as captain eo was directed by him.The simulators for star tour was military grade to give the ride experience the most realistic feel.Im not 100% sure but I heard stories that the C-3P0 and r2 units were donated and were used in the actual film are the ones you see at Dl star tours queue line.Also as people mentioned the 60 hr party this attraction was the only ride that created a line that snaked down all the way down main street,the only other being indiana jones and had a hidden mickey blasted on the starspeeder 3000 and on the moving parts conveyer.For a time you could get a view of the people mover and rocket rods zipped through the space port.As always disney leaves memories from past attractions hidden.on star captain rex is here and the lady who did the original safety video can be found in the new star tours the adventures continue.Also the second line queue was changed from a security checkpoint to a regular room with views of the planets. Star tours 1 never had a fast pass program.You can still experience the original still at disneyland paris. disney toyko closed the original star tours after the sucess of star tours 2 in dl and wdw.There are no idea when and if star tour 1 will be removed from disney paris at this time. => - pikaplaid  8126.3 #16 5:50PM
OMG!!!! R2 & C3PO!!!!! I am a major star wars fanatic, so this is a awesome. Thank you. - Jedigoofy  182.9 #2378 5:55PM
Awesome!!! I did not know this ride cost so much back then!! And I ha no idea imagineering had not much to do with the animatronics!! Thanks dear as always for the wonderful history lessons!!😘 - CourtyAstroBlisters  848.6 #265 6:07PM
This was the first ride I went on when I was eight. When we got off, I turned to my dad and said, "That was a great ride, Dad, but I never want to go on it again" (scary for me). As an adult, my opinion changed (obviously). :-) - singinaurora  20.9 #7915 6:07PM
Thanks! Wasn't the line for this crazy? Anyone know how long it got? I remember seeing a comment saying it was all the way down Main Street but don't know for sure. - BrerRabbit  360.8 #745 7:14PM
^^^ see my post,when it first open it did happen =>. - pikaplaid  8126.3 #16 7:18PM
Thank you! - BrerRabbit  360.8 #745 7:36PM
I'm so sad Adventures Thru inner Space left although I do love Star Tours. - KissDclown  1089.2 #210 8:07PM
Inner Space was great! - ShariRenee  14768.7 #6 8:09PM
I loved this as a kid and now I get asked about Rex every time I am in line with my 7 year old. Now he takes great pride in knowing that he has seen all the variations of the new ride without becoming the spy :). Thanks for the post! - phantor  152.5 #2853 8:09PM
We were at the Disneyland and it was the late afternoon when people started to gather in front of Star Tours (it wasn't open yet). We lucked out and got to be a part of its soft opening. It was a fun memory. - ElectricMayhemMom  1768.1 #116 8:39PM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  111.0 #3606 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  13820.1 #9 9:06PM

I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  1593.5 #136 7:07AM

I only post wait times if I've actually gone on the ride..( with the exception if the line is extra short, or extra long..) I try to give folks a heads up. Most of the time I have trouble posting times in certain areas of the park so I get frustrated... - carminaire  1162.4 #192 1:19PM
You're allowed to do it from the sign in front of each attraction or if you go on it a lot and can see the line is shorter/longer you can post that.  - secretagentangel  13820.1 #9 9:04PM
Wow, I made the list because I can finally contribute using wifi now (coverage in some locations)So far near Cathay, Tomorrowland terrace, and near carnation plaza - E-Ticket  1784.7 #115 10:41PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  13820.1 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10907.8 #11 9:55PM

#DCA LIVE , I am here buying groots and popcorn buckets. If you want me to buy you one and can PayPal me by Tuesday I will get them for you . If I already said I'd get you one, just remind me and if I got you something yesterday you get first dibs on what I can get tonight before 10. You'll pay whatever they cost and shipping. I will check the posts or DCA. It sounds like there is the AP popcorn bucket and a red guardians bucket. You can only get the refills on the AP bucket if you have an AP just to remind you. - secretagentangel

Get a quick overview of the new features in MouseWait 9 for iOS, our biggest update since 2009! Get the free version here, or upgrade to Platinum here

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  5653.1 #28 11:41PM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  946.2 #239 9:06AM
