January 9th, 1987 Star Tours officially opened at Disneyland resort making this famous attraction 30 years old. 

Although Star Tours opened in 1987, Star Tours-The Adventure Continues opened June 3, 2011. 

Anthony Daniels reprises his role as the voice of protocol droid C-3PO while Allison Janet provides the voice of spaceport spokesbot Aly San San. 

The flight simulator used in the star speeder 1000 is the same used by the military to train pilots. 

Many of the actors in  the Rebel Flagship scene are Lucas film employees or Disney imagineers.
