It looks like things are certainly moving forward with the Star Wars-themed hotel at Walt Disney World called Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser! Today, we learned some new details about what Guests will experience during this cruise-like experience on dry land.
For those who don’t know what this hotel will be like, it will really be unlike anything you’ve ever done, unless you’ve been on a cruise ship. (And after seeing the photos of the rooms, they certainly feel very reminiscent of a stateroom on a ship.) Each passenger cabin will feature its own window with a view of space, including ships and galactic sights.
Guests will take part in a two-day and two-night vacation and it will be an all-immersive experience that will take you to a galaxy far, far away in a way that only Disney could create. The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser isn’t a traditional hotel, instead the goal is for you to become the hero of your own adventure as you are surrounded 24/7 in Star Wars storytelling.
Guests will cruise the galaxy onboard the ship called the Halcyon. While on the “ship” you’ll stay in well-appointed cabins, experience onboard dining, make a planet-side excursion via special passenger transport to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu and much more. While onboard, Guests will be ale to do things like wield a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote, visit the starcruiser’s Bridge to learn about ship systems, as well as how to operate them.
Guests will also be able to enjoy a drink in The Silver C Lounge, which is a warm place for passengers of all ages. See….it’s really like a cruise on land. You may also be able to sneak into the Engineering Room where you can discover the inner workings of the ship.
Reservations were supposed to open later this year, but COVID, of course, set that back a bit. Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, when it does officially open in 2021 will be a luxury resort that meets adventure in a galaxy far, far away.
