Disney+World’s Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a two-day hotel experience, will make its final voyage this September, more than a year after its closure.
The experience blends elements from the company’s resorts, cruise lines and theme parks into a 48-hour spacewalk. First unveiled at Disney’s D23 Expo in 2019, the Galactic Starcruiser is located near the Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida and opens in March 2022.
A two-day trip costs around $1,200 per person per day, with family packages around $6,000. A typical Disney vacation, especially for a family of four, can be a tough number to digest, considering that a week-long trip can cost that much, depending on your choice of hotels and restaurants.
However, the Galactic Starcruiser has been hailed as a dream come true for fans seeking the ultimate Star Wars experience. The 2-day tour includes hotel room, all food and beverages except wine and specialty beverages, day trip to Hollywood Studios Park, magic band, and drop-off valet service.
But the Galactic Starcruiser is more than a hotel. It is an immersive experience. Voyagers spend time meeting new characters and reconciling with either the light side or the dark side.
The main points of the overall story are: You are a passenger on the Star Cruiser for a two-day voyage. During that voyage, a First Order officer and several stormtroopers board the ship to destroy Resistance spies. With these villains, you have everything that makes a Star Wars story: spies, musicians, traitors, and reluctant heroes.
And, of course, some familiar faces like Chewbacca, Rey, and Kylo Ren.
The experience received the highest customer satisfaction rating in Walt Disney World history and won the Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement in a Themed Entertainment Venue.
Still, the boutique hotel was too expensive for regular Star Wars fans.
“Star Wars: Galactic Starcruisers is one of our most creative projects and has been praised by guests and recognized for setting new standards in innovation and immersive entertainment,” the company said in a statement. “This premium boutique experience gave us the opportunity to innovate in 100 small rooms, and as we prepare for our final voyage, we will use what we learn to create future experiences that appeal to even more customers. Will reach and fans.
