By now you’ve likely heard that Disney’s Star Wars Hotel, aka the Galactic Starcruiser, has officially closed.
Currently, the building is sitting there empty with everyone now wondering what’s going to happen to the building when the experience ends. We asked our readers on Facebook what they think should happen to the Star Wars Hotel building, and they’ve got some ideas.
Thanks to our readers on Facebook who gave us their thoughts on this matter!
A Deluxe Star Wars Hotel
The majority of our readers said they think the hotel should stay a hotel, just minus the interactive element! Many Disney fans speculate that the live actor interaction part of the Galactic Starcruiser was part of the reason the cost of the experience was so high, so perhaps keeping this building a hotel but minus that aspect would make it more affordable.
Some people say that the building couldn’t be a hotel because the rooms are too small, but others say they’d still love to stay in those small rooms for the experience. Sure it may be even smaller than value resort hotel rooms, but hey, you’re in SPACE!
A Character Meal or Dinner Show
Other readers want to see this building turned into a big character meal, or a dinner show.
So many iconic Star Wars characters are seen on the Galactic Starcruiser for the interactive experience, so Disney could carry a bit of that over as an interactive character meal. Or the whole cafeteria area could serve as the stage for a dinner show right on the Halcyon!
An Expansion of Galaxy’s Edge
Many guests still haven’t let go of the fact that Galaxy’s Edge isn’t all that it was promised it would be, and feel that using the Galactic Starcruiser as an expansion of the land would be beneficial.
This way the story of Batuu could be expanded, bringing you into space (another very important location of the saga). It would bring more of a “wow” factor to the land, especially if you had more of those characters wandering around the ship.
Of course, Disney has yet to share what might happen with the Star Wars hotel and it’s possible we won’t know what’s planned for this spot for quite some time. Disney certainly isn’t quick when it comes to construction projects or building much of anything. Fingers crossed that we’ll learn something sooner rather than later!
We’ll just have to wait and see, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for all the latest news!
