Hold up. Does Tinker Bell do her fireworks flight in OUTER SPACE?! Spoiler alert: NO. Space is full of a lot of things, including Jedi, bad guys that go by a variety of names, lightsabers, and blue shrimp. Another thing space has apparently is fireworks! No, really. Now, you won’t find Tinker Bell floating down and you won’t be singing along to a Disney princess tune, but there are fireworks…in space…in an indoor hotel with no true windows to the outside (with some exceptions). So how exactly can an indoor hotel have a fireworks show? Well, you’re about to find out!
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser (a.k.a. the Star Wars hotel) is Disney World’s newest hotel (opening soon) with a uniquely immersive 2-night experience, kind-of like a cruise ship. Before our trip, we were able to take a look at the hotel’s itinerary through the Play Disney Parks App, and we noticed a few experiences that included a “special pyrotechnic display.” So, what exactly does that mean? Come with us to see what fireworks look like in space!
