Disney recently announced the official date for the opening of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World Orlando, Florida. Plans for a luxury Star Wars-themed hotel were first announced in 2017 at Disney’s D23 exhibition, with an initially expected opening in 2021. Disney promises a highly immersive experience for guests aboard the Galactic Starcruiser, with the hotel connecting directly to the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, a special Star Wars-themed area located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Guests at Galactic Starcruiser will feel as if they were characters in the Star Wars universe, as if exploring the galaxy, during their stay at the hotel. Visitors are invited to dress up, wear clothes like characters in the Star Wars films and be directly involved with the role-playing experience because the employees at the hotel will have their own roles so that they are truly like in the Star Wars films. Starcruiser will follow in the movie, so guests feel like they are actually flying into hyperspace, with rooms equipped with screens instead of windows to give the impression of being in a galaxy far, far away.
Disney has confirmed (via ComicBook) that the official opening date for the Galactic Starcruiser is March 1, 2022. Guests can start planning their trip from October 28, 2021, when reservations officially open. It was also confirmed that Disney Vacation Club members, Disney Passholders, and Disney Visa Cardmembers will be contacted directly in the coming weeks for “special booking opportunities”.
Fans were a bit surprised when Disney released the pricing structure for the Galactic Starcruiser. Because they think the Galactic Starcruiser is just a vehicle with various activities, not a conventional hotel to stay. the reservation is set to a duration of 2 days 2 nights, which is currently priced at under $6,000 for four people. Total cost includes meals, and admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to visit Galaxy’s Edge. Disney also confirmed some activities that guests can participate in while on this “intergalactic plane”, such as lightsaber training and meet and greets with fan-favorite characters.
After the official unveiling of Galactic Starcruiser was confirmed for next year, it looks like Disney is fully committed to making 2022 a big year for Star Wars fans. Along with this pretty awesome addition to Disney Parks, fans can also look forward to some Star Wars series launches on Disney+ for 2022, such as the highly-anticipated “The Mandalorian Season 3”, the series focused on “Obi-Wan Kenobi, and “Andor, which will be coming soon.” acted as a prequel to the film Star Wars: Rogue One (2016).
