Officially named Star Tours: L’Aventure Continue in the Parisian park, the attraction will indeed open (or re-open) on Saturday, 18th March 2017.
Update Jan 2017: Disneyland Paris is now officially communicating 26th March as the opening date, to line up with the 25th Anniversary launch, but given this only a week later and most major attractions have at least a week’s “soft opening”, it seems likely the attraction could still actually be open from 18th March as previously announced. Watch this space for further updates.
That’s no surprise to those who’ve been following its progress, as this date has been rumoured for some time, but no official publications by Disneyland Paris have yet revealed the date for sure. Now we can say it with certainty.
Not wanting to confuse potential visitors with too many dates, only the 26th March 2017 launch date of the 25th Anniversary has been publicly attached to the Discoveryland ride, which will be the most major new addition promoted for the celebrations.
This has led to many potential StarSpeeder travellers, who’d like to coincide their visit with its first operating day, questioning exactly when the revitalised attraction will be opened.
Now you can at last start booking your connecting travel with confidence, to meet that first StarSpeeder 1000 departure from Disneyland Paris!
