5 Things To Know About the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

Share This!

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, Walt Disney World’s newest vacation experience, is set to launch on March 1, 2022; and from what’s been released so far, this isn’t your typical Disney resort.

According to Disney, the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a two-night adventure aboard the Halycon where guests can become the heroes of their own Star Wars story in an interactive, immersive experience.

If you’re thinking about booking your own trip to that galaxy far, far away, here are five things you should know!

5. Interactivity

Again, the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser isn’t just a Star Wars-themed Disney World resort. Instead, guests aboard the Halycon are in a Star Wars story where they can choose their own adventure.

Guests can expect to be asked questions from the ship’s crew which then led to opportunities to participate in missions involving the Resistance and the First Order.

Much of the interactivity requires the Star Wars: Datapad, found inside the Play Disney Parks app, which contains the tools guests need to complete missions and keeps them updated on events, secret meetings, invitations, and more.

    Looking forward to a truly unbiased review. I’ve asked several media preview bloggers if it would be worth it if they had to pay their own money instead of getting all the freebies, and none will replay to my query.

    Hoping that you will be able to go live on Instagram (especially Chrissy as I find her comments in regards to Star Wars hilarious)!

    If the level of interactivity remains high, I get why people will spend money. The opportunity to see my kids truly live out a star wars experience would be priceless

    Words cannot convey my excitement. If they could, they would probably make a highly erratic buzzing sound. At first I thought it was strange that I was nervous about the experience, but then I realized it’s a limited time frame and a high cost to do and see as much as I can so it makes sense that there’s a risk and reward to consider. I think it will absolutely be worth the cost…but only if that can make each of their ~400-500 guests feel truly special.

    See you on March 1st!

    The more I’m hearing about this, the more excited I am. Better start saving up — it’s going to take a while!

    Exactly what is the current price? Is the 3K I’ve heard mentioned PP or per Cabin. Does it include, drinks, dinner admission to GE? Transport to airport…etc.

      $4,800 for two. $6,000 for four. Base price. There are tips, upgrades, Captain’s Table, etc. Plus the added cost for most people to buy alcohol, souvenirs, etc.

        Ridiculous! And that’s on top of paying to visit the parks themselves, and stay anywhere else if you visit for more than two nights.

    I am a huge Star Wars fan and would have wanted to go on one of the first trips but because of covid and the bad things I heard after folks saw the sneak peak (some people described it as a cheap Star Trek set and not up to Star Wars standards). Still I’m somewhat cautiously optimistic. I live in Los Angeles and have “been to Batuu” and Rise of the Resistance several times before the pandemic so more interested to hear about the Halcyon onboard experience and whether it is worth the funds. Otherwise I would rather spend that on staying at the Polynesian or the Riviera resort since I would be footing the bill for 3 adults to go (2 of us are avid Star Wars fans, the other less so). And that large of a payout would definitely but a damper on staying at another nice hotel during the same trip (usually stay 10 days). Looking forward to the balanced viewpoint from Len. Thanks for all that you do! Love the podcast with Jim Hill.

    Yeah…Paying that kinda cash for hotel that has all the charm of a 70’s Dorm Room Cafeteria is way out of the my zone.

    I am a huge Star Wars fan and I have yet to see anything about this that makes it even remotely look like something I’d want to do. Seems like nothing more than a HUGE waste of money in my opinion. Role playing or not, having to look at a data pad the entire time and having the entire thing staged doesn’t seem to make it more “realistic.” Snippets I saw from the lightsaber training looked quite lame and the big “battle” between Rey and Kylo Ren seemed pretty non-exciting too. It’s already expensive enough to go to WDW, so I guess I really don’t see why people would want to spend that amount of money on essentially being stuck inside a big concrete bunker for the duration. I wish they’d improve Galaxy’s Edge for us “commoners” that would never be able to afford this by bringing in more characters. How about some actual droids, more storm troopers on patrol, or even some bounty hunters wandering around?
