StarTours2Live on Twitter has posted today that Hayden won't be at the Star Tours 2 grand opening.

May 4, 2011 - Happy Star Wars Day from Hayden Christensen Fan News - May the 4th be with you! Today marks the unofficial Star Wars celebration that came about because of the popular take on the quote from the movies, "May The Force be with you." Star Wars holds a lot of very special memories for kids and adults alike so go ahead and indulge your inner fanboy or fangirl today.
Hayden and others have often spoken about their years involved in the making the Star Wars prequels and the friendships and family atmosphere that George Lucas fostered on sets and locations around the world as well as Skywalker Ranch.
"Obviously, 'Star Wars' was a huge opportunity for me and opened a lot of doors, but just on a basic cool level, I got to play Darth Vader. It's not often where you get to work on a film and run around every day with a lightsaber ... I really have no qualms about that character following me for the rest of my life." --Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader)
"The very first day Hayden walked out on the set with the Darth Vader suit was about two or three weeks before we finished shooting. About 1,000 people from all over Sydney came to watch it because it was like a seminal iconic moment in their life. We tried to let as many people on the stage as we could." --Rick McCallum (Producer)
