Being a HUGE fan of Star Tours I was especially bummed that I could not make it to the Making of Star Tours Panel from the D23 Expo last month. But thanks to the internet and YouTube I can watch the panel now! No crowds, no lines, no 7-year old daughter bugging me. I present: The Making of Star Tours Panel from the D23 Expo 2011.
Thanks to TheBugger 2000 (whoever you are) for recording these. And if you check out his YouTube channel, TheBugger recorded a lot of the D23 Expo Panel so check it out.

While the Parks and Resorts presentation goes on at the D23 Expo the folks over at the Disney Parks Blog posed a video of a birds eye view of Buena Vista Street.
Another update from the D23 Expo! Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs and Bob Weis, Executive Vice President, Creative, Walt Disney Imagineering, just took us back in time to 1920s Los Angeles, with updates on the upcoming Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure park. Imagineers have worked hard to transport guests back to the Los Angeles that Walt experienced when he first arrived in California.
Guests will be able ride the Red Car Trolley up Buena Vista Street to the new icon of the park, Carthay Circle Theatre — a recreation of the original theater where “Snow White and Seven Dwarfs” premiered in 1937. Guests will also be able to experience the park’s charming period architecture, mix of stores, eateries and guest services — it will be a whole new entry way into the park that immerses guests into the experience.
Now travel back in time with this new flythrough video, which takes you on a tour of the new Disney California Adventure park entrance like you’ve never seen before!
