Mickey, R2D2 and C3PO and Star Tours
In 1987, Disneyland opened the motion simulator ride Star Tours extending the Star Wars universe to Disneyland and this world. In order to promote the opening, Disneyland stayed open for 60 hours. Mickey got dressed up in his Tomorrowland costume (which looks like it was designed in the 1970s and not used much.) Also on hand were the two droids R2D2 and C3PO. Both droids are part of the attraction, one repairing a Star Speeder and one working on the Star Speeder you ride. Of course Disneyland used this opportunity to promote the attraction with the Star Wars characters.
