Disney World to Freeze You in Carbonite for Star Wars Weekends
Next to standing next to Carrie Fisher in her Slave Leia costume and activating a real light saber, who wouldn’t want to be frozen in Carbonite? For Star Wars Weekends, Disney World plans to do just that … and you get to keep it as a souvenir!
Guests at Star Wars Weekends this year will be given the opportunity to step into a “Carbon Freezing Chamber,” located near The American Idol Experience in the theme park, and have their faces 3-D scanned using multiple cameras to create a 8-inch figurine depicting themselves frozen in carbonite. It also comes with a light-up wristband.
Here are the details …
It takes about 30 minutes for them to scan your face (but they want you to arrive 10 minutes before your reserved time) with an array of multiple cameras that will capture your image and likeness in 3D. Then, they will use that data to create an 8-inch action figure of yourself frozen in Carbonite (it’s actually your face over Hans frozen body), presumably with a 3D printer/rapid prototyper. The cost for the priviledge is about $100 plus tax and shipping, and it should take the standard 4-6 weeks to receive it.
The Carbon Freeze Me experience will be available at Disney Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Weekends only starting this Saturday. Separate theme park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is required and no discounts apply toward the “Carbon-Freeze Me” purchase.
All too easy.
