It was Kris van de Sande, and he was a Belgian guy. Indeed, obsessed with Star Tours (through the roof and beyond), and these days one of the pro-active people of the Belgian Star Wars fanclub:

Well, all good things must come to an end. I visited the place in June of last year and it did feel a bit behind the times. Before that, I had been to Disney World for the Millennium Celebration in 2000; they were still riding out the wave of moichendizing from TPM. Not that any 7-year-old would have known (or cared).
But from what I'm hearing about Star Tours 2, it's a good thing to be replacing.
For some reason, I always have a bad feeling about things.

It's Lego, not "legos"!

So glad I finally got to visit it before it closed down. I'm 30 and had never been to Disneyland before this year...whew.

I didn't even realize that it was still open, thought it closed a couple of years ago. I think I was five or six last time I was on it.

Neat. The AC pilot is referred to as "Ace," too. Hehehe.

I remember going on the Star Tours ride twice when I was very little, and though I don't remember much of it, I remember it being such a thrill because it was like having Star Wars in real life. Hopefully this new ride lives up to everyone's high esteem for the old ride--I think the new idea has potential to be fun.
