Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser To Offer First-Of-Its-Kind Vacation Experience

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge was recently awarded by TIME Magazine as one of the World's Greatest Places. At Walt Disney World this extraordinary new land is set to open on August 29th, 2019. While being amongst the world's greatest is a huge honor, Disney's Hollywood Studios is about to launch our concept of what the "world" is into outer space. A First-of-its-kind vacation experience is in store for guests who book this voyage onboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Halcyon.

Attendees of the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California got a sneak peek at this project often referred to as the Star Wars Hotel, but this is no ordinary hotel. Halcyon, is a glamorous starship in the Chandrila Star Liner fleet, where guests will be able to check-in for a two night adventure. Once onboard, guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey like never before.

For those folks not quite up on their Star Wars lore, Chandrila is the home planet of Mon Mothma, the first new capital of the Republic after the fall of the Empire, and the birth planet of Ben Solo, also known as Kylo Ren.

More mundanely, the Starcruiser is being built just outside of Disney's Hollywood Studios. The new resort is expected to be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, allowing guests a complete Star Wars experience. While the construction site has topped out, there is still quite a bit still to be done.

A Disney spokesperson said about the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser "This ground-breaking experience is unlike any resort experience you've ever seen. From the moment you board your launch pod, it's a fully immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship complete with high-end dining, space-view cabins and all of the exciting action you would expect from an authentic Star Wars experience."

The adventure begins when guests booked for the space cruise check in at the terminal at Walt Disney World. You and your crew will then be invited to board a launch pod that will transport you (with views of your journey through space) to the Galactic Starcruiser. Upon arrival you will emerge from the shuttle and step aboard the Halcyon. Throughout your journey you will meet new interesting characters as well as galactic personalities you may already knows. Be careful with who you make friends with though, because your choices will effect the journey and ultimately guide how your onboard story unfolds.

Adults, as well as children will be bale to train in the ship's dojo and learn how to use a lightsaber. On the bridge of the ship guests will learn to operate working portions of the ship such as navigation navigation and defense. While exploring the resort guests may wander upon secret meetings and find that there is a little hero, and villain, in everyone.

With the First Order nearby, and so many characters coming and going from Batuu, you never know when an attack may come. New skills could be put to the test on this thrilling cruise through space.

The hotel will reportedly have 32 regular cabins and two first-class cabins per floor, with room to sleep up to five. Looking at the construction pictures it appears that the resort will have three floors for a total of approximately 102 rooms available. That's the size of a small boutique hotel, and it's likely rooms will sell out as quickly as they can be booked. All of this makes a trip on the Starcruiser Halcyon one seriously exclusive Disney vacation.

The pricing for an immersive adventure on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is sure to cost more than a few galactic credits. Remember, this isn't just a place to lay your head, the Halcyon is a fully immersive entertainment experience on one of the galaxy's most posh ships. This is the ultimate, luxury live action role play made from a Star Wars Fans best dreams. Currently internet rumors have the rates running somewhere around $1100 a day per person for the 2-night/3-day ticket. Costs could possibly come down per person when several people share a cabin. That being said, no official costs have been shared by the Disney Company yet, so take all that with a grain of salt.

No dates were given for the opening of this unique new experience, but Chandrila Star Line is "looking forward to booking soon." For the Star Wars faithful this is absolutely going to be the ultimate luxury live action role play. Are you ready to take a trip onboard the Star Wars: Starcruiser Halcyon?
