Hear Us Out: Here’s What Disney World Should Do With the Star Wars Hotel Building

By now you’ve likely heard that Disney’s Star Wars Hotel, aka the Galactic Starcruiser, has officially closed.

Welcome to Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

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.

Standard Cabin

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.

Galactic Starcruiser Dining Room

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.

Guest onboard the Starcruiser are brought directly into Batuu!

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.

Entrance to the Galactic Starcruiser

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!

  1. Hear me out on this one…for uber Star Wars fans, make the “Tunnel” that was the shuttle from the hotel into Batuu the “World Between Worlds” and then expand out the entire star wars land so people can travel between all their favorite spots in Star Wars galaxy. They would not be locked into a Prequel/sequel time line or a land that never existed in the films, but see places and character IN the movies.

  2. I think they should make it an information and customer service center staffed by the powers that be who came up with this idea.

  3. 1: Since announcement of closing, it’s now completely booked. See…the demand is there!
    2: Open as normal hotel without LARP. Tours and dinner show with shuttles arriving/leaving at assigned times.
    3: Rent out for weddings and corporate events.
    4: DON’T CLOSE IT!!! I went and it’s fantastic!

  4. I think it should sit unused for about five years, and then be made part of an “Abandoned Attractions” ticket-plus option. Gettin’ tired of playing golf or splashing at the water park? Take a tour of all the attractions that aren’t attractions any more because they’ve been sitting around for years, or in some cases decades. Tours led by CMs who used to work at these places. Caution–tours may involve mature language.
