    all I can say is wow. I was very impressed with the show! My brother and I weren't going to go and bought tickets that afternoon... but we were ecstatic over how well it was done and how there were no lines for the rides (indy exception) and all the people were for one thing! I absolutely loved it!

    This was one of the one of the best things about attending C5! Raiders of the Lost Jedi Temple of Doom and and being able to walk on practically all of the major attractions(including Toy Story Mania - and anyone knowing what that line is usually like knows what I mean) was well worth the price of admission. The Hyperspace Hoopla also had some new additions and some different twists and the fireworks display was simply awesome!

    I'm really glad I was able to go and take part in the final farewell to the original Star Tours! :D

    Is there a copy of the mix they used for the Symphony in the Stars? That selection of music and sound clips was just wonderful.

    Doubt it.
    IMO, I totally disagree with you, for what it's worth. I thought it was average at best and was pretty much ruined by the inclusion of the "I HATE YOU!!!!" line from Episode III.

    I have an amazing story, I actually went to the "Last Tour of Endor" for CV celebration. We went to see the Indiana Jones/Jedi crossover show and George Lucas was in the front row.

    After the show my wife and I went to try and get a closer glimpse of ole GL and we saw all these people running so we figured they were running towards George so we joined them. Turns out it was the cast of Star Wars and some of the Clone Wars! Daniel Logan was right in front of us and we wound up going to their backstage area!

    They were all wearing these pink bands for VIP, my wife was getting nervous and didn't want to get kicked out so she wanted to leave but just as we were leaving we found some of the VIP bracelets on a table! Next thing you know we are running off with Anthony Daniels, Seth Green and tons of people from the Clone Wars and going on all the rides. We had our own security guards and everything, we walked onto EVERY ride it was amazing! BEST NIGHT EVER!

    I'm actually working on my own cut of it. I like to put together Disney background music loops and this is on the top of my list at the moment. I just need to find high quality versions of the quotes used in the show. I thought the soundbite thing on SW.com would be a good source, but sadly, they're missing a lot of them.

    As someone who missed out on the fireworks, we only got a glimpse at it from the final Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Jedi Temple of Doom stunt show, all I have to say is one big THANK YOU!

    I watched a couple of taped versions, most of them have audio clipping problems, so seeing you're going to do a high quality versions is a great idea.

    Thanks for the photo compliments. For my fellow photo buffs out there...I had mounted my gorillapod on a railing on mainstreet with my old Canon EOS 20D and a very wide angle lens on it. I then attached my timer that I use for time lapse shots. I set it to shoot 5-second exposures every second (so it would be open for 5 seconds to get several fireworks bursts, then close and wait a second before doing it again).

    I loved the Last Tour of Endor. I hadn't planned on going, but a friend ended up winning two tickets at the TF.N party. We went out with the first shuttles, so we were very happy when we got to see the Beauty and the Beast show as well. To be honest we only did the Star Tours once in the beginning and spent the rest of the nigh going between the Rock'nRollercoaster and the Tower of Terror. We missed most of the hyperspace hoopla due to that, but we loved the fireworks.

    Also just the Indy show would have been worth paying $75 for, we were at the middle one with GL, eventhough we were so far in the back that we just saw the top of his head.

    I can't remember, but which one of you was dressed as the guy from Cloud City with the ice cream maker? You can see yourself in the starwars.com video report about Last Tour to Endor.
