R2-D7 was a conical-headed astromech droid with a black photoreceptor and white plating, with a silver and teal trim. By the year 4.3 ABY, it tended to StarSpeeder 3000s at the Star Tours travel company's Tomorrowland Starport. Using its scomp link, R2-D7 also operated the I.D.A. (Inventory Droid Assistant) to bring replacement parts from inventory to the Droidnostics Center under a Mon Calamari supervisor. However, the I.D.A seemed to have a mind of its own and R2-D7 had a hard time getting it to work.

R2-D7 was created for the 1987 Disney simulator ride theme park attraction Star Tours, where it was featured in the ride's queue at each of its locations, which included each of Disney's resorts excluding Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disney Resort. They were first identified by a "Spot the Droid" poster displayed at the Tokyo Disneyland Star Tours attraction. An action figure of R2-D7, albeit misidentifying the droid as R4-M9, was released in 2003 as part of the Disney Parks exclusive Star Wars: Star Tours toy line.
