Disney’s been busy, very busy. In the summer of 2019, Disney unveiled a new section at Disneyworld and Disneyland: Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. Over the holidays, my family visited and rode one their new rides – Millennium Falcon.
A few months later, in early 2020, the latest hype is Rise of the Resistance, a thrilling new ride that’s been generating all the buzz and increase park visitors. Here’s an entry I wrote regarding our tips how to be successful in obtaining a chance to experience and board this ride.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

On Thursday, according to CNN, Disney announced that:
Reservations will open later this year for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a two-day, two-night, all-immersive vacation simulating life in the “Star Wars” universe.Think cruise but, you know, far, far away.
Star Wars: Galactic what? Yes, Star Wars Galactic Starcuiser. It’s not simply a visit to a Disney theme park, but it’s an immersive 2-day experience where you get to “live onboard a star cruiser…and you can get wrapped up in the larger Star Wars story.” This is what Ann Morrow, executive producer of Walt Disney Imagineering mentioned in a blog post.

According to Leah Asmelash of CNN, the Starcruiser will be at Walt Disney World in Florida, and it won’t open until 2021. However, reservations are set to begin in 2020. Here’s an aerial image of the construction.

How much will this cost?

According to Walt Disney World News Today:
Pricing for a 2-night/3-day stay starts at $3,300 for one person, or just over $1,000 per person, per day.
This fully immersive experience is not exactly cheap. Think of it as a cruise:
Pricing for the Star Wars hotel will be based around the full 2-night/3-day experience rather than per night (you know, like a cruise, but in space). If you’re going to stay here, it will be a time commitment as well as a financial one, as shorter one-night stays will not be allowed. Much like on the Disney Cruise Line, food, select beverages, and entertainment will also be included as part of the experience.

Ok, so how much?

According to WDWNT:

  • 2-night/3-day stay starts at $3,300 for one person,
  • Cabins do sleep up to five passengers, so there’s also the option of maxing out the cabin occupancy for a relatively cheaper price per person.
  • A cabin with five passengers would cost $7,200, or roughly $1,440 per person, for a more feasible $480 per person, per day price range.

Ouch, quite cost prohibitive for me. But I’m certain that there are going to be lots of Star Wars fans who will fork out this cost.  I hope they find ways to make this be more cost-attractive. There are many fans out there who struggle purchasing tickets to a Disney Theme Park (under $150 per day). But then again, there are folks who save or spend hundreds or thousands to go on a cruise or on a vacation, so I’m sure Star Wars fans will find themselves saving up or preparing in order to experience this Galactic Starcruiser.
