Come Live Your Very Own Epic Star Wars Story
― tagline


Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a Star Wars–themed luxury resort hotel that was built near Disney's Hollywood Studios, in the EPCOT-Hollywood Studios Resort Area of the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida outside of Orlando, which was originally scheduled to open in 2021. However, it was delayed to March 1, 2022, as part of Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary celebration, since the opening was postponed indefinitely following the closure of the park due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The hotel accompanies the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge themed area in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Overview

In this first of its kind experience and in partnership with NASA, Disney and Lucasfilm are inviting guests to become the hero in their own adventure – and they can do it in whatever way they'd like. They live aboard a "starship" for two days and two nights.

Before guests arrive at the Galactic Starcruiser at the Walt Disney World Resort, they come up to a terminal – like a small, private cruise terminal- and starcruiser clerks will help the guests check in for their stay.

They are then ushered into a launch pod – a small capsule – where they have a simulated experience of blasting off into outer space and leaving Earth behind.

They can look out the window overhead seeing every planet in our Solar System in our Milky Way Galaxy whizzing by at a fast rate. and after jumping to lightspeed to another galaxy far far away within our universe, they see the famous Star Wars planets pass by until they eventually see the ship – the Halcyon – in the distance.

Once the capsule arrives at the Halcyon, the doors of the launch pod will open and guests emerge into the atrium where the atmosphere reinforces that they are on a Starcruiser.

The guest cabins are styled more like cruise cabins than hotel rooms. Cabins can sleep up to five people and contain bunk beds reminiscent of the ones on the Millennium Falcon, as well as a queen size bed and a pull-out bed. The window shows a view out into space, with the planets changing as the cruise’s story progresses.

Food and beverages (excluding alcohol) are included in the cost. The dining room features blue milk and green milk on tap.

The ship contains an outdoor courtyard to prevent guests from getting claustrophobic. To maintain the illusion, this courtyard is said to be a “climate simulator” room that copies the weather on Batuu.

Guests of all ages are invited to participate in a variety of activities such as wielding a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote. Every guest is also be invited to take a tour of the bridge of the ship where the navigation and defense systems are.

Guests go on a planet excursion to Batuu to visit Black Spire Outpost at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge as part of this experience. Guests take an exclusive transport and emerge straight out into the land. The experience includes a meal in the land, as well as Lightning Lane reservations for both Rise of the Resistance and Smugglers Run.

Before or after their stay, guests can take Disney Transport buses to travel to the different parks and other destinations around Walt Disney World Resort.
