Every few days we are going to take a look back at Star Tours, 1.0 that is. The original Star Tours launched at Disneyland on January 9, 1987 and closed in July of 2010. The ride video itself was very dated as was the promotional video that help launch it. With all the buzz and promotional material surrounding the launch of Star Tours – The Adventures Continue, I though we could use a look back for nostalgia as well as a few laughs.
This is the grand opening of Star Tours from 1986 and comes to us curtsy of TheDisneyDude55 on YouTube. The ceremony takes place at the entrance to Tomorrowland and features visits from your favorite Star Wars and Disney characters.
