Tatooine Traders is currently under an extensive reimagining right now to remove the movie set theming of the Star Tours shop. The shop will remain open during the refurbishment, but it is stocking limited items. According to Cast Members at the location, the reimagining of the space will remove the movie set theming of the shop, once completed. The new space will more effectively immerse guests in Star Wars theming. In the photos below, you can see that some of the props have already been removed from the walls.
Amazing Pictures, the insert-your-face-in-a-scene souvenir photo offering has been removed. Guests still looking for the souvenir photo offering can find one in Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster.
Cast Also said that they expect registers to only be on one side of the store when the work is complete, opening up what was once a very crowded shopping space.
The work is expected to be completed in mid-to-late October.
