in honor of Star Tours’s 25th anniversary, I shall now share my favorite Star Tours story.


It’s a classic.

So the gate agent was checking the cabin and whatnot, “pull on the yellow strap,” all that jazz, and a lady had her backpack on, and the gate agent was like “ma’am, your bag has to go under your seat.”

And the woman looked confused and horrified, and said “baby go under seat?”

And lo and behold, she take the backpack off and turns it around…


Baby did not go under seat. Baby and mother were hastily escorted out for a rider swap.

But now it is a custom amongst us spaceport agents to yell “baby under seat?” at each other. It’s like our traditional greeting. To which the proper reply is “Ehhh, together, family!”

Reblogging because it’s our 26th anniversary, and also because I think the new movie is coming out? Maybe. I might have seen something about a new Star Wars.

Happy 26th birthday to my favorite park and my favorite ride! Great Movie Ride scared the daylights out of me when I was five and became my new home when I was eighteen. Over the years I’ve bounced around Studios (Beauty and the Beast, Fantasmic, the Pixar parade, the HSM3 pep rally, Star Tours, the Frozen processional) but Studios will always hold a special place in my heart no matter where I roam. And of course, once a Movie Rider always a Movie Rider! (at The Great Movie Ride)

apparently I have a weird voice, because this happened at Star Tours yesterday.


Me: “Hi there! Party of three? Here’s your flight glasses, we’ll find a gate for y’all.”

Ten Year Old Boy: “Do they pay you to talk like that?”

Me: “…no. I just naturally talk like Bubbles from the Powerpuff Girls.”

oh my god Josh just said I should have answered with “DO THEY PAY YOU TO WEAR THAT MASK? OH WAIT THAT’S YOUR FACE.”

That would have gone over real well, I’m sure.
