I was one of the lucky annual passholders who “won” the opportunity to ride Star Tours 2 (that’s what I’m calling it) prior to its official opening. I chose every possible date/time, so the odds of winning were pretty high!

Anyhow, I got five rides in over 4 hours, and got to experience virtually all of the variations.  When you get the best combination of sequences, the ride is fantastic. There are some weaker sequences, like pod racing on Tatooine or driving through traffic on Coruscant.  The best sequence, in my opinion, would be Darth Vadar beginning + Hoth middle + Naboo or Death Star ending.

And now, the photos:
