To which I have to reply, of course: “And with your spirit!”
Last weekend, the dreams of every “Star Wars” geek were fulfilled, when Disney unveiled a new iteration of its popular “Star Tours” ride. Orlando was crawling with would-be Jedis, eager to be among the first to take the ship for a spin. (I’m told George Lucas was there for the launch, along with Anthony Daniels, but they must hang out with a different crowd than I do. I never saw them.) This morning, hoping that the crowds had died off, I trekked to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see what all the fuss was about.
Turns out, I wasn’t the only one with this idea:
When I sprinted to the middle of the park, the wait was minimal — less than 10 minutes. I imagine all the Obi Wan Wannabes had already been there over the weekend.
And: I swear that was Sigourney Weaver telling us to buckle our safety belts before lift off. (Or maybe Carrie Fisher? Anybody know?)
Oh: and be sure and visit the gift shop on the way out — as if you could possibly avoid it — because some of the stuff is pretty cute.
