Walt Disney World Shares More Details About New Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Hotel

Exciting new details regarding Walt Disney World's new Star Wars-themed hotel were shared Sunday from the D23 Expo by Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, and Ann Morrow Johnson, executive producer and creative director for Walt Disney Imagineering.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Atrium

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will offer a two-night itinerary where all Guests arrive and depart together, similar to Disney Cruise Line. Unlike any typical cruise, though, Guests will have the chance to become the heroes of their own Star Wars story in a new type of immersive experience that only Disney could create.

Guests will cruise the galaxy in style aboard the Halcyon, known for its impeccable service and exotic destinations. Onboard, visitors will stay in well-appointed cabins, experience onboard dining, make a planet-side excursion to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, and much more. Throughout the journey, Guests will be invited to delve deeper into their personal adventure by participating in onboard activities, interacting with characters, crew, other passengers they meet, and becoming part of the action and the broader Star Wars saga.


The adventure begins when Guests arrive at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal at Walt Disney World and check in for your two-night experience. there, they will be invited to enter a Launch Pod for transport into space. Through windows above, Guests will jump to hyperspace and draw closer and closer to the Halcyon.

When the Launch Pod docks with the Halcyon and the airlock opens, space travelers will step into the ship’s main deck Atrium to begin your journey through a galaxy far, far away. A visit aboard the Halcyon becomes a multi-day story that interweaves with members of the crew, other passengers, familiar Star Wars characters, and an excursion to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Lightsaber Training

The all-immersive experience also features entertaining activities, such as:
  • Wielding a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote,
  • Visiting the starcruiser’s Bridge to learn about ship systems and how to operate them, including navigation and defense – skills that may come in handy during a journey through this adventure-filled galaxy.
  • Exploring the Halcyon and discover hidden spaces deep in the mechanics of the ship – perfect for uncovering secrets … or holding secret meetings.
Choices Guests make during their adventure will help determine how their Star Wars story progresses.
