"I do not consider myself a star. I'm a craftsman and I know my craft." -Keenan Wynn


2010:
D23, the official Disney fan club, gives members the chance to be the last to go on Star Tours before it closes for rehabilitation at Disneyland. (Yesterday, Monday July 26, was the attraction's last regular day in business.) Before Disneyland shuts down Star Tours for a year (to transform the attraction into a 3-D journey), D23 members take a final ride after 1 a.m.
"I took my final ride on Star Tours late Monday night. It was cool riding the “Flight to Endor” for the last time, particularly with
 an audience that was there specifically to see it before all flights were grounded. On board during my final flight was a person
 dressed in an Imperial Stormtrooper’s costume and a woman dressed up like Princess Leia." -Imagineer Mark Eades

lights outside his home in Arkansas and each year at Christmas time at Disney World, Osborne was a successful 
business man and self-made millionaire who started a medical research facility with his wife in 1968. (A 
microbiologist by training, he opened a prescription drug testing laboratory that grew to become one of the premier 
human-trial research facilities in the industry.) A holiday tradition at WDW, Osborne first lit up Residential Street at 
Disney-MGM Studios (today known as Disney's Hollywood Studios) back in November 1995.
