Fans of the original Star Wars series no doubt remember the end of The Empire Strikes Back where Han Solo was encased in carbonite. Now you can own your own mini-version of yourself in Carbon-Freeze condition.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios guests can experience the “Carbon-Freeze Me” process which involves having their faces digitally captured from multiple angles and then magically transformed into carbonite figurines. In the video below Disney Parks Blog author Gary Buchanan and Star Wars Weekends Celebrity Host Ashley Eckstein tour the Carbon-Freezing Chamber and try out the experience for themselves
I did not know that the limited-time Carbon-Freeze Me Experience is actually open every day — not just on Star Wars Weekends — and will continue to operate through June 16, 2012 even though Star Wars Weekends ends this year on June 10. The cost is $99.95 plus tax and shipping; so it’s not cheap, but it is awfully cool.
To make advance reservations for Carbon-Freeze Me, call 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324). Walk-ins are accommodated based on availability.
