Get Frozen In Carbonite Like Han Solo At Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Ever since I was a little kid, I wanted to be frozen in carbonite, just like Han Solo did in The Empire Strikes Back. What can I say, when you are six and a Star Wars fan, being imprisoned and kept as a keepsake by intergalactic gangsters seems like an awesome idea. Now, you don’t have to go through the trouble of being set up by that traitor Lando to get the treatment — just visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios between May 18 and June 16 and you too can be loaded into Boba Fett’s cargo hold.

Well, not quite. For $99 plus shipping, visitors of the Carbon-Freeze Me experience can have a 3D scan of their face placed on an 8″ replica of Han Solo’s carbonite prison, which will be shipped to them in about four weeks. This is all a part of Disney’s D-Tech Me initiative, creating more customization of Disney merchandise. And to hold you over the month until you get your frozen doppelganger, you also get a light-up Imperial wristband.

Unfortunately, there are a few flaws in the process. You can’t just show up and get your face scanned — reservations must be made by calling 407-WDW-TECH. Also, while the face is custom, the body is still going to be Han’s. So if you, for instance, have boobs, it might not quite match up with your body type.

    Bummer. What a let down. I thought they’d give us the real Mickey Mouse-icle treatment,, like Walt got!

    Ahh, they’re running it with Star Wars Weekends, it looks like. I wonder how many Celebration attendees will be annoyed that it’s not available in August.

    There’s another “flaw in the process” They don’t ship it out in the time frame the specified. Then they make up lame excuses on why they were unable to fulfill their obligation
