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  10.4 #11060 9:55AM
Awww. What a sweet story! Do you live over here now? - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 10:05AM
Awwwwww! How romantic! Where was your wife visiting from? Australia? - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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  10.4 #11060 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 #7726 8:58AM
That's a cute story. Great memory! - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 10:02AM
What a special memory! Disney magic always impresses me. Thank you for sharing that with us! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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  778.1 #250 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  3671.6 #41 7:55AM
Awe! Do you know what was her favorite part of the old attraction? - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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 #88 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  6491.2 #19 8:37AM
Perhaps they could add more western states. The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley would be sweet. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #88 8:43AM
But it's soarin over "California" πŸ˜‰ would you change the name then too? - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 8:46AM
How about "Soarin Over America"? - ScooterMike  1963.0 #88 8:48AM
I've thought this too- change to different Ca locations or at least not have the Christmas parade all the time. - LilSterner  5732.5 #23 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  6491.2 #19 8:59AM
Radiator Springs is modeled after Seligman, Arizona - ScooterMike  1963.0 #88 9:01AM
TouchΓ© Mike πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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  582.8 #360 8:18AM
It was soooooo eighties - ScooterMike  1963.0 #88 8:20AM
Oh my goodness! How did I forget about her! Thanks for the giggle! πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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 #454 8:21AM
BTW, I did like the Original Star Tours, but so glad they did an upgrade. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #454 8:23AM
You're so sweet. I'm happy you enjoy these! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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 #97 8:24AM
You never ride the original?! 😳 You poor thing you really were DL deprived huh? - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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...  7240.2 #14 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  6491.2 #19 11:55AM
Amazing info especially since today is my Birthday! Now I know I share it with Tomorrow Land! πŸŽ‰ - ZeroLove  14.1 #9164 8:32AM
Happy Birthday! - hatgal76  451.9 #503 12:23PM
Happy birthday to you ZeroLove! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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  1152.2 #162 8:35AM
I was there. Thanks again for the excellent info Duchess. I have the commerative LE Star Wars Coin. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #210 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  916.3 #206 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  5732.5 #23 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  1347.7 #136 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  416.1 #552 9:45AM
Ohmygad! My fav too!! Oh wait, you didn't say it was your fav. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ AT AT puppies - misschurro...  7240.2 #14 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  802.0 #237 9:48AM
Hmmm. Maybe I should try this. Definitely remember the carsick feel! And not fondly! Hahaha. - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 10:04AM
Soo Cool! - Armenda  1173.5 #159 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. - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 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  1346.8 #137 10:15AM
Wait. Im not your mom, am I?! Hahahaha. Sounds like me! - MeridaFan  4244.1 #36 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 #728 10:34AM
love!!! and haha mickey's outfit! - OhanaPhoto  6397.2 #20 11:55AM
I was about to say the same thing :) - DisLUVney  636.3 #328 12:02PM
I don't remember riding the original, but I've been told I enjoyed it. - Lola027  452.7 #501 12:03PM
I'm loving Mickey's futuristic costume! - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #815 12:11PM
Teehee! Reminds me of aluminum foil! πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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  315.9 #848 12:16PM
I was there for one of the Grad Nights in 87. - MermaidHunter  141.4 #2917 12:50PM
My Mom always asked "So where did we go exactly?" LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3387.7 #45 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 #1219 1:11PM
i was there for all 60 hours and still have my watch - tazzmike68  3.9 #25457 1:26PM
Oh no way?! That's amazing! I'd love to see it! You should post a pic of it! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 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. => - pikarich  5897.0 #22 5:50PM
OMG!!!! R2 & C3PO!!!!! I am a major star wars fanatic, so this is a awesome. Thank you. - Jedigoofy  182.9 #2258 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  807.5 #235 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  8.5 #12683 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 #660 7:14PM
^^^ see my post,when it first open it did happen =>. - pikarich  5897.0 #22 7:18PM
Thank you! - BrerRabbit  360.8 #660 7:36PM
I'm so sad Adventures Thru inner Space left although I do love Star Tours. - KissDclown  1089.1 #177 8:07PM
Inner Space was great! - ShariRenee  10029.4 #9 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 #2722 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  1571.8 #113 8:39PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin May 9, 2016 5:42PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  643.2 #324 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7428 11:53PM

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127403 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6371.4 #21 8:10PM
