Ahead of its opening, though Disney World has already put the Starcruiser on the My Disney Experience map! Guests can zoom in and explore features of the hotel, as well as see how close it will be to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.


Guests can also visit the Halcyon model over at Walt Disney Presents in Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a full view of the space craft they will be traveling on soon!

It’s the Halcyon!


Guests will first pull up to the transport area of the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser since they will need to be “flown” over to the actual Halcyon ship to start their journey.

Families will be checked in before they board their “launch pods,” which will give motion simulation that guests are actually moving through space.

Advanced technology screens like the ones we’ve seen used at the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Rise of the Resistance will also be incorporated for visual effects as well.

Back in 2019, Disney previously announced that The Silver C Lounge would be a feature for guests of all ages. However, now Disney has updated its name to change it to The Sublight Lounge instead! There will be both a bar for adults, as well as game tables for families to interact together.


Along with the lounge, there will be a fantastic dining experience that is almost like a dinner theater show as well!

The Crown of Corellia Dining Room will feature both breakfast and lunch in an open hall before becoming a hot dinner spot with “a lavish multi-course menu of both otherworldly and familiar origins.” During the dining experience, you’ll even be able to watch a performance from one of the new characters aboard — a galactic superstar Twi’lek!


The name “Corellia” is inspired by the planet know for its shipyards that brought ups the Halcyonas well as the Millennium Falcon.

When guests are staying at the Galactic Starcruiser, they will step into their very own Star Wars story. They will be making choices that affect the outcome of their Light or Dark Side paths. Everyone on board will interact with characters and locations to help their stories unfold. Yet, in the midst of those events, there are also various entertainment options around the hotel!


When guests first enter the hotel, they will gather in the main lobby, The Atrium. There will be seating, appearances from characters, and a main stage for performances throughout the day that are a part of passengers’ stories.
