A new vacation experience unlike any other is coming to Walt Disney World.
For "Star Wars" fans, the opening of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser in 2021 offers a two-night itinerary that promises to take guests to a "galaxy far, far away."
Similar to a cruise ship, all guests arrive and depart the experience at the same time.
"Guests will cruise the galaxy in style aboard the Halcyon, a starcruiser known throughout the galaxy for its impeccable service and exotic destinations," Disney said. "Onboard, they 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 adventures by participating in activities, interacting with characters, crew and other passengers they meet, and becoming part of the action and the broader "Star Wars" saga.
Guest will check in at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal at Walt Disney World. From there, they will enter a Launch Pod for transport into virtual space. Through windows above, they’ll see themselves leave the real world behind as they jump to hyperspace and draw closer and closer to the Halcyon.
"When the Launch Pod docks with the Halcyon and the airlock opens, guests will step into the ship’s main deck Atrium to begin their journey through a galaxy far, far away," Disney said. "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."
Activities include wielding a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote, where guests just may discover their own connection with the Force and visit the starcruiser’s Bridge to learn about ship systems and how to operate them.
