Celebrity Visits

Star Tours is located in the most famous theme parks in the world so you might on occasion see a celebrity on board the Starspeeder 1000. Or perhaps tweet about their visit.

Almost every summer since 2000 Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida has held Star Wars Weekends during the summer. During those weekends you can have the chance to meet some of the people that worked on the Star Wars films both in front of the camera and behind the scenes.

On Saturday August 14, 2010 Disney’s Hollywood Studios held “The Last Tour to Endor.” Star Wars Celebration V was also being held in Orlando that weekend. Lots of celebs from the Star Wars universe were on hand for the “Last Tour” including George Lucas.
