Until Friday, many details about the new Star Wars hotel have been kept under wraps. We had (more than a few) questions about the timeline, story elements, and food that would be available on the Galactic Starcruiser, but now we’ve got some answers!
So the Star Wars: Galatic Starcruiser may technically be considered a hotel, where guests will stay for 2 days and 2 nights, but it sounds like it will be more like a cruise than a regular Disney hotel. With that in mind, let’s dive into 7 new things we learned about the new Star Wars: Galatic Starcruiser.
1. You don’t have to participate in the story if you don’t want to
Disney Imagineers finally clarified something that we’ve been dying to know: Do I have to participate in the experience?
The answer is, it’s completely up to you! According to the Imagineers, there will be “so many different ways to engage,” and “You don’t have to participate if you don’t want to.” If the Star Wars fan in your family wants to make some trouble with the dark side, they can! But, you can sit back “and drink that space cocktail” if that’s more your thing!
2. The Crown of Corellia will serve unique Star Wars-inspired foods
Blue shrimp, dry ice, mysterious, circular dishes…Disney wasn’t kidding when they said they were “taking really delicious things and presenting them in unexpected ways.”
There’s even some kind of crazy food that will be inspired by Mustafar, a planet known for heat and lava. We wonder if it will be spicy! Does lava make you think sweet, or savory? We can’t decide!
3. Like a cruise ship, meals are included in the price
While we still don’t have a price, we do know that meals will be included in the overall price for the Star Wars hotel.
And while we’re on the subject of cruise-like experiences, it’s probably important to mention that there will also be live entertainment and music while dining!
4. There will be a hidden part of the ship for guests to explore
If guests are feeling adventurous it was revealed that the Engineering Room will be a HIDDEN room for guests to try and find!
Will guests bump into a friendly face, or someone a little more sinister?
5. The hotel experience will seamlessly tie into Galaxy’s Edge
Disney Imagineers explained that they tapped into the detailed story already established in Galaxy’s Edge and will build off those details to show guests things that wouldn’t normally be seen as a day guest traveling through Batuu.
Not only that, but guests will learn about the backstory on Smuggler’s Run, including top-secret information on the identity of the coaxium buyer that Hondo references on the ride!
6. We now have an OFFICAL opening timeline
We’ve been waiting for this one! Disney finally announced a timeline for the Galactic Starcruiser!
The Star Wars hotel will officially open in the Spring of 2022! We can’t wait!!
7. Guests can help throw someone into a brig—or break them out!
We caught this interesting tidbit in the video, where an Imagineer explains, “There might be someone that you help stowaway, and there might be someone you help get thrown in a brig or break out!”
The story taking place on the Galactic Starcruiser will be happening all around the passengers, and they can help shape the fate of the galaxy during their stay! We told you this isn’t your typical hotel experience!
With so many incredible new details released about the Star Wars hotel, are you tempted to make the journey to a galaxy far, far away? We’ll keep our eyes out for more details and information about the new Star Wars hotel, so stay tuned!
