With Disney's Galactic Star Cruiser coming March 1, 2022, you might be wondering how this one of a kind experience will work.
Disney describes the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser as "like nothing else you’ve ever experienced: part live immersive theater, part themed environment, part culinary extravaganza, part real-life role-playing game—and yet so much more.
While your story unfolds, you’ll have the power to choose your path. Will you follow the rule of the First Order or join the Resistance in a secret plot? Strike a bargain with a gang of smugglers or sit back, sip a cocktail and watch it all from a safe distance?
The choice is yours as you step aboard the most immersive Star Wars story ever created—one where you live your own Star Wars adventure!"
Here you'll learn what's included, what room rates are, and how to plan for your out of this galaxy Star Wars cruise experience.
According to Disney, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a revolutionary new 2-night experience where you and your group will embark on a first-of-its-kind Star Wars adventure that’s your own. It’s the most immersive Star Wars story ever created—live a bespoke experience and journey further into a Star Wars adventure than you ever dreamed possible.
Essentially this Star Wars experience is build like a cruise ship. Guests embark and disembark together on a 2 night journey.
Your Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser vacation package includes:
So essentially what makes this different is what is included with the price. You aren't just getting a room when you book the Starcruiser. You're also getting the included entertainment, food and drinks, free parking, a Magic band, and tickets to Hollywood Studios.
The rooms on the Starcruiser aren't your typical resort room. Each room has a "view" of a galaxy far, far away. You'll see ships, planets, stars and other galactic sights float past your room.
It is important to note that this resort does NOT have a swimming pool.
Each Standard Cabin is fitted with furnishings and fixtures designed to ensure comfort while traveling throughout the galaxy—including a pullout table and a TV with entertainment from your home planet—and a window with a view out into space.
One-bedroom Galaxy Class Suites feature a living space complete with an integrated seating area and have all the comforts of Standard Cabins plus a double vanity bathroom, bar area, 2 windows with views out into space and a few extra Star Wars surprises.
Two-bedroom Grand Captain’s Suites offer ample room for the whole family and feature a posh living space complete with an integrated seating area. They have all the comforts of Standard Cabins plus a main suite with a double vanity bathroom, a second bathroom with a single vanity, a bar area, 3 windows with views out into space and a few extra Star Wars surprises.
Disney has released some sample rates to give an idea of what this experience will cost:
As you can see from the graphic from Disney's website, a 2 night voyage for 2 guests would cost a total of $4809, 3 guests would be $5299, and 4 guests would be $5999.
No rates were provided for the larger Captain Suite.
It's also important to note that the sample prices provided are for an "off-peak" time at Disney World. So if you are planning on visiting during the summer or winter holiday season, I'd expect these rates to be much higher.
On the first night of your adventure, the Crown of Corellia Dining Room transforms for dinner into an enticing table-service supper club with a special musical appearance by a galactic superstar. You’ll enjoy a special evening with distinctive dining and entertainment as you socialize with passengers and crew.
The second night, The Taste Around the Galaxy showcases courses inspired by the geography and environments of iconic destination planets throughout the galaxy. With the serving of each course, a brief introduction presents the name, inspiration and ingredients for the dishes. The meal includes group appetizers for the table, a choice of entrée and a specialty plated dessert.
You can indicate your preference for first or second dinner seating (based on availability) when you book your vacation package.
For an additional fee you can request to be seated at the Captain table in the center of the Crown of Corellia Dining Room
Breakfast and lunch are also available in the glamorous Crown of Corellia Dining Room. Help yourself to colorful fare from all over the galaxy—along with familiar favorites from your home planet.
Start your day with a unique off-planet breakfast of hot and cold small plates and a variety of beverages including juices, fresh brewed coffee and Bubo Wamba Family Farms blue milk.
During lunch, choose from a collection of small bites, like sandwiches, soups, mini flatbreads, assorted salads and sweets.
On the ship you'll find a lounge inspired by the Halcyon starcruiser's historic voyages throughout the galaxy.
Here you can sip a beverage and relax—perhaps while conspiring with a charming smuggler or playing a casual game of holo-sabacc.
Wield a lightsaber and face off against a remote training device in this exclusive interactive activity that is far beyond anything you’ve experienced before. Put your skills to the test!
Guests must be at least 7 years of age to participate.
Explore the working bridge of the legendary Halcyon starcruiser and learn how it functions from the crew during this hands-on experience. The crew will teach you how the navigation, power, defense and other critical systems keep the Halcyon starcruiser safe from unforeseen galactic entanglements. These skills may even come in handy should critical situations arise later in your voyage!
Planet Excursion to Batuu
It's hard to say if this experience will be worth the cost.
If you are a hard core Star Wars fan, knowing that this price includes not only the room, but also food and drinks, park tickets to Hollywood Studios, and entertainment, this could definitely be something worth spending money on.
I do wonder if discounts for Annual Passholders will be provided, since a free park ticket to Hollywood Studios is not an incentive.
I also question if families with younger kids would get their monies worth out of this type of experience.
We'll find out more and update this article when this experience opens in March of 2022!
Reservations open on October 28, 2021.
