A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away….
Confronts the Power of the Dark Side
It is a dark time for Disney/STAR WARS fans. Star Tours remains an empty shell after the evil lord Darth Vader and his bounty hunter Boba Fett closed the attraction with a thermal detonator.
However, a creative group of young IMAGINEERS have re-established a new, improved STAR TOURS base in the mysterious tropical SWAMP world of Florida.
To commemorate this event, and pay tribute to legendary VICTORY celebrations of the Ewoks, Naboo, and Gungans, a party of EPIC proportions was planned with invitations extending deep into the far reaches of space….
