On the show floor, Walt Disney World will be bringing the Carbon Freeze Me experience from Star Wars Weekends to Celebration VI. The Carbon Freeze Me experience offers Star Wars fans the chance to be frozen in customized carbonite figurines using several cameras that capture your face and then reconstructed in a computer for processing. The figurines cost $99.95 plus tax and shipping for an 8-inch figurine with your face on Han Solo’s body.
