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?
