I’ve been eagerly following the development of Disney’s Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser hotel since it was announced 2 years ago. The experience not only combines a hotel and its accommodations, but also a whole larping experience, simulating life aboard a spaceship in a galaxy far, far away! Interested? Of course you are! Here’s the official trailer, which was unveiled a little earlier today:
Disney describes the experience as “a revolutionary new 2-night experience where you are the hero. You and your group will embark on a first-of-its-kind Star Wars adventure that’s your own. It’s the most immersive Star Wars story ever created—one where you live a bespoke experience and journey further into a Star Wars adventure than you ever dreamed possible.”
“Arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort terminal, board a launch pod and rendezvous with the magnificent Halcyon starcruiser. Stay in a cabin or suite with an exquisite view of space. Throughout the ship, you’ll interact with an eclectic collection of characters, sit down to exotic galactic cuisine and perhaps even plot a secret mission together. As the itinerary continues, you’ll take the story further and deeper. Choose your path. Seek out the inner workings of the legendary starship, learn the traditional art of wielding a lightsaber and even jump on a transport to the planet Batuu—where your mission continues at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!”
All that for… are you ready? $6000! That’s the “starting at” price for a two-night stay for a family of four. I don’t know about you guys, but there’s no way my girlfriend and I, with our six kids, could ever afford something like this, and that makes both of us really sad, because we’d absolutely love to go!
