Sorry if this question has already been asked. I heard a rumour that Dude (Looks Like a Lady) was removed from the Rock N Roller Coaster's soundtrack because it's offensive. Does anyone know if this is true?

 

I don't know if that is the reason, but I haven't heard it on my last several rides.

A Google search brings up nothing about this, and I'm sure one of the die-hard Disney fan sites would have been talking about it by now.

Last week we were invited to come out to Disney's Hollywood Studios to check out the new "Star Wars Launch Bay" and we figured that with The Force Awakens opening on Friday, what a great time to post our report since everyone is in the height of Star Wars Hype right now!

 

So what is "Launch Bay?" Well, it's sort of an all-around interactive display for Star Wars geeks! It has tons of models, props, costumes, etc, from all of the movies including the new one, as well as TONS of merchandise you can buy! (If you all thought we were flooded with Frozen stuff, just wait until the flood gates for Star Wars opens! We haven't seen anything yet!)

 

But by far the most impressive part of Launch Bay was the character encounters with Darth Vader and Chewie, both who talk to you! (Well, Chewie just sort of growls...)

 

The movie at Launch Bay is a lot of fun and gives you a behind the scenes look at the new movies. The Cantina is also there with Jawa's wandering around. While it's not a new attraction or land, it's certainly a fun addition to hold you over until the new lands open.

 

Oh, and don't forget on the other side of the park is also a new section for Star Tours, an updated Jedi Academy show, and another Star Wars moving showing in the old "Monster Sound Stage" theater! On to some photos...

Good morning Hollywood Studios! We love the look of the entrance area at 6am!

IMG_3587.thumb.JPG.a6c4f0a685764ca340a765e2416776f4.JPG

Star Wars Launch Bay takes over the old Animation building and you wouldn't recognize it at all walking in here! They have done a GREAT job of completely changing over the building!

IMG_3591.thumb.JPG.48f9d57dd0fd240407d0e685d49c380a.JPG

In the queue area to get into Launch Bay you'll find lots of pictures and artwork from the films.

IMG_3593.thumb.JPG.3b78225fe9f8646b9cdf62d13595db3b.JPG

Yay! BB-8! We haven't even met this droid yet and we already love him!

IMG_3597.thumb.JPG.0e210f60640ff1d46ceb90eb8b103221.JPG

The giant mural covering the entire Star Wars film universe was amazing!

IMG_3598.thumb.JPG.2fd4cd574721018dd74b40728c692f7d.JPG

Inside the theater is a great film giving you a behind the scenes look at the new movies.

IMG_3607.thumb.JPG.37e0f2b61713693f328272667b0ac99d.JPG

...yet somehow in the future.

IMG_3608.thumb.JPG.cd8e4fa57f8289ad5ab37da4fcc7cbfa.JPG

You'll find lots of models, props, and costumes from all of the movies.

IMG_3610.thumb.JPG.cd6ba05fd258390300a486c9f0e2fcb2.JPG

If you want to get an up close look at an X-Wing pilot costume, here ya go!

IMG_3612.thumb.JPG.6aea845bc229e38f5cb69fd9604da9cd.JPG

Not sure what this is, but it looks cool!

IMG_3615.thumb.JPG.6ea07eba0733d005401af774d0cc3061.JPG

Yay! Return of the Jedi!

IMG_3615_a.thumb.JPG.64a20ab03a13295a8380c4e223b34ffd.JPG

The Darth Vader encounter was pretty cool. I wasn't exactly sure what to do in the presence of the Darth One, so a mean fist was in order. I'm pretty sure he choked me after this.

IMG_3615_b.thumb.JPG.24ce3178b8cd022b9b92980ff36df1e2.JPG

Hey Chewie! It's impressive that both of these characters actually talk! (Well, Chewie just sort of growls...)

IMG_3624.thumb.JPG.e29a0bf34e5b6ce9a4994d283ffba332.JPG

The Cantina is here and you can hang out in this area...

IMG_3632.thumb.JPG.2464f5243e5c9fc9e0d53160d79f89f8.JPG

OMG! This Jawa just wanted me to trade my iPhone for some Droid parts! lol Silly Jawa, I'm an Apple user...not gonna trade for your crappy Droid...sorry! ;)

IMG_3638.thumb.JPG.3595fc76e43b49e91b46d3fc9d5fb8d4.JPG

Oh, yes... you can play video games!

IMG_3641.thumb.JPG.8431398806ae5af28141dcebdbbfab19.JPG

Here you can "Try before you Buy" the latest Disney Infinity figures. It's sort of like when Blockbuster was still in business.

IMG_3646.thumb.JPG.3b6052e5a04dca00103e64d4e5cbb292.JPG

New stormtrooper from the new movie!

IMG_3648.thumb.JPG.6e4bc6ac643b8ebb8de2dc7ee6824190.JPG

And yes, we all should know what this ship is.

IMG_3657.thumb.JPG.cca3b4df23b6ef485ea035a944e3ccaf.JPG

Tons of artwork everywhere!

IMG_3661.thumb.JPG.5105d7f4058e91e058d629b1e5a31911.JPG

Just in case you always wanted an official Storm Trooper costume.

IMG_3663.thumb.JPG.78e9bfac0148c22d5f26af8e2f7f292b.JPG

For just 5 bucks, you too can be Han Solo and all the chicks will dig you!

IMG_3667.thumb.JPG.69a70497f7121f0052a52975570dac06.JPG

These light saber lamps were awesome! Which side are you? The Rebels...

IMG_3668.thumb.JPG.eb7a8575d96b892f1caad5a207d57561.JPG

Or the Force?

IMG_3676.thumb.JPG.8edb9bb4c85b29c06b976e1831356a71.JPG

And ONLY at Launch Bay can you get this assortment of exclusive Magic Bands!

IMG_3678.thumb.JPG.2e4032e8767c202c3d3ff6770c71a23f.JPG

The selection is awesome! Star Wars fans will want to make a lot of bands!

IMG_3684.thumb.JPG.19ece097426d66df77172d27b096f766.JPG

More characters...

IMG_3691.thumb.JPG.a1d1b10a0f5b8298b0df20416f11cea5.JPG

More stuff to buy...

IMG_3692.thumb.JPG.0094fb750e148389083c4897abb8c304.JPG

And you can even buy your very own old guy Darth Vader life size bust.

IMG_3710.thumb.JPG.c873e06986a1dc97653bae56b2156bff.JPG

Path of the Jedi is being shown in the old Monster Sound Stage theater and if you've not seen any of the Star Wars movies, this is a great film to get you caught up on what's going on.

IMG_3714.thumb.JPG.64ee18d384e0c37e9a5b4c8aab9a34d7.JPG

Star Tours also has a new segment inspired by The Force Awakens!

IMG_3743.thumb.JPG.ad0728c149999c05aef026b65ad28c06.JPG

**LOVE** Star Tours! It's kind of the grand daddy of simulator rides and still the best!

IMG_3745.thumb.JPG.5a13ddd0d6fa30a3300cadd83df1a680.JPG

Yes, there are BB-8 cupcakes, and they are delicious!

VIDEO! Check out the new Star Tours scene!

IMG_3779.thumb.JPG.b42c69a73b34be4b19d3bc870922344d.JPG

Jedi Training Academy received some upgrades and now can accommodate even more Jedi Trainees!

IMG_3815.thumb.JPG.e88eb172079a59d666d131c572f24930.JPG

Looks a bit more well-polished than the Disneyland version. Pretty much exactly the same but I noticed the displays seemed to have more "life" to them. Then again, the Launch Bay bored me to tears as it's essentially a prop garage so I was only in there for 10 minutes.

 

The new Jakku scene in Star Tours was excellent, though! I loved the callback to the original, far superior, Star Tours, when Finn comes on the side screen and says, "Star Tours?! What are you doing here?!" Also another callback that you really need to pay attention for, "Brakes! Brakes! WHERE ARE THE BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKES?!"

 

Unfortunately the rest of the ride is still a steaming pile of crap compared to the original, but that's the way my brain works.

It should also be noted that in addition to the new The Force Awakens-inspired sequence in Star Tours, variations of existing scenes have also been unlocked on the ride. One example is when riders visit Naboo, the home world of Padme Amidala and Jar Jar Binks (seen most prominently in Episode 1), they normally pass by a swimming Jar Jar Binks, but in the variant sequence, they actually hit Jar Jar as he slides across the front viewport of the Starspeeder 1000. There are other variations throughout the original sequences that launched with the ride a few years ago and I've only seen a few so far, but it really does up appeal of riding again and again, particularly if you are a Star Wars fan.
