Dad Builds Homemade Disney ‘Star Wars’ Experience for Daughter’s Birthday
Back in the fall of 2019, this family’s daughter requested a Disneyland-themed party at their house for her birthday in April, but due to COVID-19, they had to shelve the attractions and postpone the party until 2021.
The “ride” was built in the family garage, and simulated the “Star Tours – The Adventure Continues” attraction at Disney’s many theme parks. It’s modelled from the original 1987 version of ‘Star Tours’ featuring Paul Reubens (the man who played Pee-wee Herman) as Captain Rex.
The excited kids line up as an adult takes them through the experience, including Captain Rex’s frustration with the programming on his first flight.
Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader were played by the family’s good friends. The family didn’t make any money from the party or the video, they simply wanted to share their fun with kids any other fans out there.
