Remember when Disney Imagineers were hard at work building Batuu and they mentioned a new galactic hotel that would cruise into space?
Mark your calendars, because reservations will open later this year for “Star Wars:” Galactic Starcruiser, at Walt Disney World Resort.
Guests will travel alongside Wookies, droids, stormtroopers and more during this new all-immersive experience on Starship Halcyon.
The starcruiser may not make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, but the adventure will take you to a galaxy far, far away in a way that only Disney Imagineers could create.
“Star Wars:" Galactic Starcruiser will be like a two-day cruise in that it drops visitors into a completely self-contained world. Instead of traveling on the high seas, however, visitors will be made to feel like they’ve been launched from a parking lot at Walt Disney World in Florida to a spaceship millions of miles above Earth.

Guests onboard will also be active participants in stories that unfold right before their eyes during their stay.
“'Star Wars:' Galactic Starcruiser is a completely new type of experience,” Ann Morrow Johnson, executive producer for Walt Disney Imagineering told the Disney Parks Blog. “You’re going to live onboard a star cruiser…and you can get wrapped up in the larger ‘Star Wars’ story.”
The hotel debuts in 2021 and we can hardly wait.
