Flying the Millennium Falcon

Can you imagine climbing in the pilot seat and flying the Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars movies? You can, discount viagra drugstore on board the cruise liner Disney Dream AND if you are a child.

The newly redesigned Disney Dream Oceaneer’s Club (a club for kids only) has a replica of the most popular of the Star Wars spacecrafts. (Personally, viagra generic I don’t think it’s fair that it’s for kids only, and we adults don’t get to have the experience!)

Disney Insider ( got to sail on the Dream and got a first-hand tour of the new space. Take a look.

The new Star Wars space in the kids’ club is spread out revealing several rooms of the Millennium Falcon. The cockpit is undoubtedly the coolest part. If you flip the correct number of switches and push the right amount of buttons, the screen will illuminate and zoom you to a far flung planet. Another cool effect is that the pilot can trigger jumps to lighspeed at different places in the Star Wars universe, even to the Death Star trench run (on rare occasions). These sequences come directly from Star Tours: The Adventures Continue attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland.

And what’s the Millennium Falcon without R2-D2. The full size droid is in a specially designed mobile astro-droid repair tube getting cleaned off and chatting with the kids.

Of course, there’s an engine room too. The story there is that Chewbacca is doing a little engine work in that area. You can see his bowcaster and his bandolier. The kids can help him by playing motion control video games.

If flying the Millennium Falcon is not enough excitement, kids can get Jedi training as well. They’ll learn how to use the Force by moving objects and how to do the Jedi mind trick.

This is SO not fair – it should be for adults too, not just for kids! Oh, did I say that already?  Well, maybe one day …
