The Star Tours attractions in both Tomorrowland at Disneyland in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World resort in Florida are currently running a new sequence “inspired” by the upcoming new Star Wars, the Force Awakens film.  While Star Tours generally runs a random sequence with over 50 possibilities, for the next few months the new sequence will be the only one run, ensuring as many fans as possible can see it.  However, the film, which has prided itself on secrecy won’t open until December 18th, which has led some to wonder if the new sequence contains spoilers….and if so…will those be leaked to hungry Star Wars fans world wide.

Disney spokesperson, Ann Akinsky Walker, has confirmed to ENN that the sequence does include several things which would be considered “spoilers”. However, she added that precautions are being taken to mitigate the danger of those details being leaked.  Guests will be required to check their cell phones and cameras as they enter the attraction.  This is to prevent them from recording…or even Periscoping the scene. But, those electronics will be returned when the guests leave the attraction….which is expected to be at 12:01am on December 18th.

Those with questions about this policy should see Quester Relations…..uh…I mean Guest Relations.
