Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort have come a long, long way from the original Disneyland Park.

While the avid Star Wars fan may wait a long time for this attraction, most Guests are unwilling to wait in such a long line for this ride.

Riding this attraction is a bit of a game of chance, as each Guest is addressed a specific role, and some roles are noticeably more interactive than others.
