We’ve got a TON of new details about the upcoming Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel in Disney World!
The first of its kind hotel is set to open in Spring 2022 and will welcome guests onboard a starcruiser for a 2-day and 2-night adventure through a galaxy far, far away. And, though we knew that the itinerary included a stop at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we now know even more details about how the experience will be different from when you visit as a day guest!
According to Disney Imagineers, they have created multiple storylines that will span your experience both onboard the Halcyon (which is the name of the starcruiser guests stay on) and on the planet of Batuu!
When it’s time to go visit Batuu, a transport that is operated by Black Spire Outpost will fly up to the Halcyon to pick up guests and take them to the planet. And, guests will land on the planet to find that many of the storylines that have been unfolding on the ship, will then play out as a story in Galaxy’s Edge.
So, even attractions will mean a little bit more when you’re traveling from Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser! For example, guests will be introduced to the coaxium buyer when on board the ship and learn all about the deal. And, then they’ll come down to the planet to ride Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run to steal the coaxium and later get to see the sale complete.
Disney Imagineers also note that every guest’s reason for being in Galaxy’s Edge will be a little different based on the storylines that they choose to engage with on the ship. So, you might be investigating the coaxium deal for the First Order, or you might be the person delivering the coordinates to Hondo so he knows where to send you to get the coaxium.
But, that’s not all — the storylines will even expand into the shops on Batuu!
The crew on the Halcyon are too busy to make their way down to the planet, so guests might find themselves being asked to complete a favor on their behalf. It might include delivering something to the local Droid Depot or completing a deal with the Toydarian Toymaker who is working with some of the folks that are up on the ship. It all just depends on which characters you’re interacting with throughout your stay!
And, if you just want to be a tourist and visit Galaxy’s Edge without any secret missions, that’s okay too! Disney Imagineers shared that “You can choose to be as casual as you want or dive as deeply as you want to,” so if heading back to the cabin to take a nap and have some lunch sounds like the adventure you want to go on, that’s totally okay!
Of course, there are SO many more details coming to Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, and you can learn all about them from Disney Imagineers in the video below!
