    Taking 30 yr old niece to Disney. She has developed a degenerative spinal chord issue. I read Star Tours has seats that don't move, can the rest of us still have whole experience in same room or is it separate? Also read seats in EO move to the music now?

    Hi Maria,

    There are no non-motion seats at Star Tours. On occasion, if there are no lines, during non-busy times, cast members have allowed guests to simply watch the movie without running the simulator. This is not the norm, and has been done at the cast members discretion. I would ask a cast member at the front of the line if it would be possible to experience the attraction this way. If you were to experience the attraction in the same vehicle as your niece, you wouldn't have motion.

    As for Captain EO, the movie is in the same theater that used to show, Honey I Shrunk the Audience. The seats do move and bounce to the beat of one of the songs. However, I believe (you'll have to ask a cast member for sure) that seats in the back row remain stationary.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
