A Star Wars Hotel is coming to Disney World! Guests at the completely immersive Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will “board a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them.”
The experience, opening in 2021, will be unlike any other Disney destination anywhere. This all-new Resort experience will offer a two-night itinerary, meaning that guests will arrive and depart together (similar to a cruise).
Boarding The Halcyon
Guests will become citizens of the galaxy immediately upon entrance (and will be invited to dress the part). After arriving at the terminal, they will enter a Launch Pod which will bring them straight into space where they will dock at the Starcruiser, The Halcyon.
Your journey will officially begin as you board the Halcyon which is “known for its impeccable service and exotic destinations.”
Once onboard, guests will stay in “well-appointed cabins, experience onboard dining, make a planet-side excursion to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, and more.”
Batuu is the planet guests set foot upon when they enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, so time in the new land is included in the stay. Note that the Galactic Starcruiser will be located on the south side of Hollywood Studios, just east of World Drive, offering a seamless connection to the Galaxy’s Edge.
All passenger cabins will feature a view of space offering glimpses at other ships in the galaxy!
Experiences on the Starcruiser
During your stay aboard the spaceship, there will be opportunities to train with a lightsaber, interact with your favorite characters, and operate the ship’s defense systems!
Passengers will gather — along with member’s of The Halcyon’s crew — in The Atrium. You may even spot a familiar face or two from a galaxy (that’s no longer!) far, far away…
A visit to The Bridge will give passengers the chance to navigate The Halcyon and operate its defense systems (with guidance from the crew, of course).
If you’ve ever dreamed of wielding a Lightsaber (and who hasn’t?!?), the Galactic Starcruiser will give its passengers the opportunity to train with one!
You may even be able to sneak into the Engineering Room — typically reserved for The Halcyon’s crew only — and see for yourself how the ship works!
While we await more details regarding dining aboard The Halcyon, we do know that guests can look forward to enjoying a beverage at The Silver C Lounge!
The overall experience will be a standout among Disney resorts around the world.
Opening Year and Reservations
Though an exact date has not been revealed, Disney has announced that reservations will open later this year (as of February 2020), so keep checking back for details!
Note that no official pricing or opening date details have been released at this time.
