Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, more commonly known as the Star Wars hotel, is a two-night, fully-immersive “cruise” adventure. It is the most highly-themed Resort that Disney has ever built, and it promises to transport guests into the world of Star Wars for an experience like no other.

Once you pass through the entrance and board your “launch pod”, all mention of Star Wars as a film stops. Instead, you’re a guest on The Halcyon, flagship of the Chandrila Star Line, as you embark on a cruise across a galaxy far, far away. Highly advanced screens create the illusion that you’re traveling past iconic locations in the galaxy on your approach to your port of call, Batuu.

Do Guests at the Star Wars Hotel Need Park Tickets?

Guests aboard Galactic Starcruiser will not need to purchase an admission ticket to Hollywood Studios in order to experience the “port day” in Galaxy’s Edge. This excursion is included in the price of your two-day voyage aboard the Halcyon.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

What is a Databand?

Known on Earth as MagicBands, Databands allow guests to interact with sensors throughout their adventures onboard the Halcyon. Exclusive Databands will be complimentary for guests of Galactic Starcruiser and will also be able to interact with touchpoints throughout Walt Disney World (exactly as a MagicBand does).

MagicBands have featured Star Wars in the past — but Databands will be exclusive to Starcruiser.

The Databand will require guests to enable location services, Bluetooth technology, and other permissions in order to fully interact with the adventure onboard. Read more about this from Disney here.

My Disney Experience

Your earth-based My Disney Experience app will still be useful during your voyage on Galactic Starcruiser. Disney says you may:

    • Link your Disney account to your Galactic Starcruiser reservation if that wasn’t done for you when you made your reservation.
    • Use online-check-in before your arrival.
    • View your reservations and plans just as you would at the rest of Walt Disney World.
    • Use Mobile Order during your time in Black Spire Outpost.

What is the Itinerary for the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser?

Within 30 days of your arrival, your personalized itinerary will be available via the Datapad on your Play Disney Parks app. The Datapad is a Galaxy’s Edge- and Galactic Starcruiser-specific aspect of the Play Disney Parks app that allows you greater interaction with the land and the ship.

Disney has released a sample itinerary to give potential guests an idea of what their visit onboard the Halcyon might include. Activities noted in the sample itinerary include:

    • Ship Orientation
    • Sabacc Lessons
    • Bridge Training
    • Rise of the Resistance
    • Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
    • Droid Racing Competition

Star Wars: Datapad

The Play Disney Parks app will activate onboard Galactic Starcruiser as a Datapad, just as it does in Galaxy’s Edge. Your Datapad will host your personal itinerary, but it will also receive communications “from the crew and others you meet along the way.”

Datapads allow users to scan unfamiliar markings on packages and more!

Disney encourages guests of the Halcyon to download the Play Disney Parks app ahead of their arrivals.


Unlike the guest experience in the rest of Walt Disney World, onboard the Halcyon guests are encouraged (but not required) to wear thematically appropriate costumes.

The Crown of Corellia will service breakfast and lunch as well.

Note: You may be seated with other parties during your Table Service dining experiences at the Crown of Corellia.

Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo

Your voyage includes a Quick Service meal during your trip to Black Spire Outpost. When eating on Batuu, the offered option is Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo, however Disney also notes “other select locations” at Hollywood Studios will also be included.

An adult Quick Service meal will include an entree and a beverage (alcoholic included for those over 21 wishing to select one). A child’s Quick Service meal includes a combo meal from the kids’ menu.


The Chandrila Collection

This boutique located onboard the Galactic Starcruiser is the place to purchase costumes and galactically-appropriate attire should you wish to dress the part during your voyage.

Droid Depot Droids

Guests of Starcruiser who choose to build an astromech droid at Galaxy’s Edge’s Droid Depot are allowed to operate their droids onboard the ship. They may even choose to race their droids in a droid racing competition!

Build Your Own Droid!

Guests will need to register for this event up to 60 days before their voyage. See Cast Members onboard to inquire about registration when you board.

The Atrium

The Atrium is the main lobby, where the crew and passengers can gather. In addition to providing ample seating, it also features frequent appearances from characters, and will serve as the main “stage” for the ongoing story.

The Bridge

The Bridge is where the ship’s navigation and defense systems are managed. Guests can operate these systems under the crew’s guidance and may be called to battle stations during an attack by the First Order.

The Engineering Room

The Engineering Room is a children’s play area, themed to the ship’s engine room. Younger guests can crawl around and help perform maintenance on the ship’s vital systems.

Lightsaber Training

Lightsaber Training is a recreational activity where guests can practice deflecting blaster bolts with their own training saber. As they work, they might even discover a connection to The Force.

The ship is also expected to include several hidden areas, which are only accessible to guests on “secret missions”.


The Story

The main draw of the Galactic Starcruiser is the story. You are a guest on board the Halcyon who finds yourself drawn into the conflict between the Resistance and the First Order. Disney promises that each guest will experience their own unique tale and that the choices they make will carry over throughout their trip.

This is a step beyond the existing Star Wars: Datapad you may have used in the Play Disney Parks app, as your physical actions in the resort and park will affect your standing, and Cast Members will respond to your choices. You could end up in the brig for tampering with the ship’s controls, or make an alliance with major players in the Galaxy at the Sublight Lounge.

Character Meet and Greets

Disney purports that guests will encounter familiar characters in new ways — even helping and joining them on missions that can impact their adventures the next day as well.
