Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios Carbon Freeze Me Experience

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back is my all time favorite in the Star Wars sagas. One of the most memorable scenes of course would have to be when Boba Fett is waiting for his prize, Han Solo in Carbonite to take back to Jabba. Have you ever wanted the opportunity to have your own customizable Star Wars figure? Star Wars Weekends 2012 at Disney's Hollywood Studios is going to offer this amazing experience! 

  Coming this year to Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Star Wars Weekends attendees will have the opportunity to relive that scene with the Carbon-Freeze Me experience. This new experience was created especially for Disney Parks, and is part of “D-Tech Me” line that uses technology to take personalization to a whole new level.

Using state-of-the-art imaging technology, this experience casts your likeness as a three-dimensional, 8-inch figurine. At the Carbon Freezing Chamber located adjacent to The American Idol Experience, several cameras will capture multiple angles of your face. The images are then reconstructed in a computer for processing and, in approximately four weeks, the figurine is shipped directly to your house. I had my image captured during early tests for this experience, and it was surreal to see a digital version of my head.

Each carbonite figurine is $99.95 (plus shipping). You can order additional figurines using the same image scan for $74.95 each. The replica figurine can be hung on a wall, just like the gangster Jabba the Hutt did in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (I plan on doing the same thing when I receive mine). Guests also receive a light-up wristband with for participating.

The experience will officially open on May 18 with the start of Star Wars Weekends. Reservations for are required and can be made starting Monday, May 7 by calling 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324).

May the Force be with you!
