Great news for fans of Star Wars, (and aren’t we all?), the D-Tech Me experience will be returning for Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida this year. The experience will be located inside Darth’s Mall, (clever name don’t you think?) and will surely be a must-do activity for those visiting the park this summer.
After the massive success of their Carbon-Freeze Me experience last year Disney is adding a new option for Star Wars fanatics and it should have people lining up for days. Aside from bringing back the personalized Carbonite option they will also be adding something brand new that features the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire, the Stormtroopers.
The 10-minute experience uses the world’s highest-resolution, single-shot 3D face scanner created by Disney’s Imagineering scientists with Disney Research labs. That captured image is later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create the figurine. The completed figurine will arrive within 7-8 weeks after the experience if shipping domestically (it takes a little longer if shipping internationally). Guests will also receive either a Carbon-Freeze Me light-up band or a collector button depending upon which option they choose.
The Star Wars – D-Tech Me experience is $99.95, plus shipping and applicable sales tax. To book your experience at Florida’s Disney World, please call 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324) to ask about availability. Disney will only be offering the experience during Star Wars Weekends 2013:
May 17 – 19
May 24 – 26
May 31 – June 2
and June 7 – 9
So just to recap… you will wait in line for hours, pay a nice chunk of change for something that takes 10 minutes and then have to wait up to 8 weeks for a toy Stormtrooper with your face on it……I”M SO DOING THIS! While there, I am even going to get in another massive line and do the Carbonite thingy as well. The way I see it…. it’s money well spent for a lifetime of memories!
