Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Hotel at Disney Hollywood Studios

A Star Wars vacation experience unlike anything Disney has ever created before will fully immerse guests in a galaxy far, far away when Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser debuts at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

Exciting new details were shared Sunday live from D23 Expo 2019 by Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, and Ann Morrow Johnson, executive producer and creative director for Walt Disney Imagineering.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will offer a two-night itinerary where all guests arrive and depart together, similar to Disney Cruise Line. Unlike any typical cruise, though, you can become the heroes of your own Star Wars story in a new type of immersive experience that only Disney could create.

You will cruise the galaxy in style aboard the Halcyon, known for its impeccable service and exotic destinations. Onboard, you will stay in well-appointed cabins, experience onboard dining, make a planet-side excursion to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, and much more. Throughout the journey, you will be invited to delve deeper into your personal adventure by participating in onboard activities, interacting with characters, crew, other passengers you meet, and becoming part of the action and the broader Star Wars saga:
  • The adventure begins when you arrive at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal at Walt Disney World and check in for your two-night experience.
  • You will be invited to enter a Launch Pod for transport into space. Through windows above, youll see yourself leave the real world behind as you jump to hyperspace and draw closer and closer to the Halcyon.
  • When the Launch Pod docks with the Halcyon and the airlock opens, you will step into the ships main deck Atrium to begin your journey through a galaxy far, far away.
  • A visit aboard the Halcyon becomes a multi-day story that interweaves with members of the crew, other passengers, familiar Star Wars characters, and an excursion to Star Wars: Galaxys Edge at Disneys Hollywood Studios.
  • The all-immersive experience also features entertaining activities, such as:
    Wielding a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote, where you may discover your own connection with the Force.
  • Visiting the starcruisers Bridge to learn about ship systems and how to operate them, including navigation and defense skills that may come in handy during a journey through this adventure-filled galaxy.
  • Every window in the Halcyon including those in each cabin has a view of the galaxy beyond, with ever-changing vistas as the ship progresses from place to place.
  • Youll be able to explore the Halcyon and perhaps discover hidden spaces deep in the mechanics of the ship perfect for uncovering secrets or holding secret meetings.
  • Choices you make during your adventure will help determine how your Star Wars story progresses.

Just make sure you sell a kidney, before booking, by the sounds of the expected cost of it!

On the face of it, it sounds fun. But after 48 solid hours of SW role-play I think Id be scratching on the doors of an escape pod to return to something resembling normality (even by Florida standards)

The question is who though?

As with Galaxy's Edge this isn't aimed at your average Star Wars fan as it is solely based around the sequels which, being honest, are now failing to grab many existing fans attention let alone hook in a new generation. Outside of Disney enthusiasts, youtubers and those with enough money to just give it a blast I can't really see the drive for your average fan to want to pay the money we expect this will cost. I'll be interested to see how demand is for this and when the discounts will no doubt start to be thrown at this to get more people on board.

Well at a proposed $3300 per person for the two night experience it is extortionate.

This does seem a little too much to me, I am no expert but is there a large enough market of people that will want to travel all the way to Florida only to effectively lock themselves into a box with no windows for 2 nights and days?

There will always be some level of interest I guess, but long term I suspect this might just end up being a Star Wars themed hotel with the role play and set time element removed.

Is that how much it's going to be?
Dear God the World has gone nuts.

I suspect for the first 6 months it will be full. Then the die hard fans will peter out and they may find they have a millstone around their necks.

However not for me to worry about as I have bigger fish to fry.
