Debuting at this years Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests will have the opportunity to relive the famous carbon freezing scene from The Empire Strikes Back with “Carbon-Freeze Me”. This new retail experience was created especially for Disney Parks.
Using imaging technology, this experience casts your likeness as a three-dimensional, eight-inch figurine inside the “Carbon Freezing Chamber”, which will be located adjacent to The American Idol Experience. Several cameras will capture your face and then the images are reconstructed in a computer for processing. After approximately four weeks, the completed 8-inch figurine representing Han Solo frozen in Carbon, but with your face, will be shipped to your house. Guests will also receive a light-up wristband.
Each carbonite figurine is $99.95, plus shipping and guests can order additional figurines using the same image scan for $74.95 each. Guests must be 3 and up and guests under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
The experience will start on Friday, May 18, the first day of Star Wars Weekends 2012. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324).
