Happy May the 4th, a.k.a. Star Wars Day!
Today we’ve gotten some HUGE updates from Disney about one of the experiences Star Wars fans have been eagerly awaiting — Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser (also known as the Star Wars hotel). So far, we’ve gotten a look at the incredible new, realistic-looking lightsaber that will debut there, and an update on when the hotel will open. And now we’ve got some news about a way that you can get a special peek at part of this hotel!
Earlier today, Disney shared that for a limited time, guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios will get a look at a model for the Halcyon starcruiser. This is the starcruiser that guests of the Star Wars hotel will “board” for their two-night adventure.
Of course, we made our way over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to check it out for ourselves today!
The model is located in Walt Disney Presents. You’ll find it in one of the display areas located near the theater.
In the display, you’ll find the model of the Halcyon…

Alright, let’s get a closer look at this model! Here’s the model from the side, giving you a sense of its size.
Here’s a look at it from the front.
Here’s a peek at the front area with a more up-close view.
And here’s a look at the other end of the ship.
You can see just how much detail went into creating this model.
Here’s a look at the very back of the ship.
It looks like this is the same (or very similar to) the model shared back in 2019 at the D23 Expo.
To board the Halcyon, guests will enter a Launch Pod, leave Earth, and be completely transported to a galaxy far, far away.
Then, they’ll spend a 2-night stay aboard the Halcyon, enjoying all kinds of out-of-this-world food, training with lightsabers, and more.
We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more Star Wars news, especially about the Star Wars hotel experience, and let you know what we find.
As always, May the Force Be With You.
