It’s almost that time! Star Wars Weekends are fast approaching at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! For some die hard Star Wars Fans, this yearly event is a must-do on their list. As you know, we do our best to get our Members the latest information as it comes out, and we found some additional news for you, here’s the scoop!
I’m excited to share that the Star Wars – D-Tech Me experience will be returning for Star Wars Weekends this year. The experience will be located inside Darth’s Mall, the highly themed merchandise destination located in the courtyard in front of the Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster. You may recall that Disney first introduced the Carbon-Freeze Me experience last year during Star Wars Weekends. They also introduced the experience at Celebration VI, the ultimate Star Wars event that was held last August in Orlando, Florida. This year Disney is bringing back the popular Cast Yourself in Carbonite option that was inspired by a scene from Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. The are also going to offer a new option featuring the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire, the Stormtroopers.
The 10-minute experience uses the world’s highest-resolution, single-shot 3D face scanner created by Imagineering scientists with Disney Research labs. That captured image is later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create the figurine. The completed figurine will arrive within 7-8 weeks after the experience if shipping domestically (it takes a little longer if shipping internationally). Guests will also receive either a Carbon-Freeze Me light-up band or a collector button depending upon which option they choose.
The Star Wars – D-Tech Me experience is $99.95, plus shipping and applicable sales tax. To book your experience, please call 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324) to ask about availability. The experience is only during Star Wars Weekends 2013 (May 17 – 19, May 24 – 26, May 31 – June 2, and June 7 – 9).
