Update: Star Tours may open as scheduled on May 17th, rather than the new date that was announced this evening. Disney may have just been plugging Star Wars Weekends for the out-of-town press.
As part of tonight’s press conference, it was announced that Star Tours 3D will officially be opening May 20th, 2011 at Hollywood Studios. The original opening date was Tuesday May 17th. May 20th is expected to be the first day of the first Star Wars Weekend and we can expect Hollywood Studios to be extremely busy. Star Tours is currently closed for refurbishment while a new 3D film is implemented and the ride vehicles are improved.
