BAY LAKE, Fla. – Walt Disney World shared an all-new look at the lightsaber training experience coming soon for guests staying at the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser hotel.
Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro showed his Jedi experience in a video during the D23 fan event at Disney‘s Contemporary Resort Saturday morning.
During the video, D’Amaro meets Disney Imagineer Sara Thacher to learn about the ancient ways of the lightsaber and faces off against an interactive training remote.
The new experience is just one of several things guests aboard the Halcyon Starcruiser will do to live out their Star Wars story.
The inaugural voyage of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at the Walt Disney World Resort will depart March 1.
Just last week, Disney CEO Bob Chapek said during an earnings call that the first four months of voyages are already sold out.
Disney said the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a vacation experience going beyond anything the company has created before. During a two-night adventure, guests will stay in well-appointed cabins, experience exquisite dining and out-of-this-world entertainment, visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and much more.
“Throughout the voyage, guests’ choices will determine their personal adventures as they interact with characters, crew and other passengers they meet and become part of the action and the broader Star Wars saga,” Disney described in a news release.
The new hotel will be located behind Star Wars: Galaxy‘s Edge at Disney‘s Hollywood Studios.
Disney plans to share more details about the experiences in the future.
