Breaking News! It won’t be long and you will be able to take a journey into space on a 2 day, 2 night adventure at the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Resort in Walt Disney World. Last night new details were released about the resort giving you a more in-depth look at just what it will be like to “board” the Starcruiser.
We first learned that the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will begin “transporting” guests to a galaxy far, far away in 2021! It will be a new type of immersive vacation with a two-night, cruise-style itinerary, you’ll become the hero of your own adventure in an experience that surrounds you 24/7 in Star Wars storytelling.
The Galactic Starcruiser Terminal is where you’ll begin your Star Wars experience and then whether you show up via personal vehicle, Disney transportation or by landspeeder, curb-side check-in prepares you to leave Earth behind, jump to lightspeed and begin your Star Wars story. From the Starcruiser Terminal, you will enter an exclusive launch pod for travel up to the Halcyon, your starcruiser in a galaxy far, far away. Through the pod’s viewports, it looks as though you are traveling through space to approach the massive ship that is much too large to land on any planet.
A “spaceport of call” to Black Spire Outpost is included in your itinerary, where special passenger transports take you to the planet Batuu (also known as the destination for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios).
To get from Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and back, you’ll remain fully in-story as you step aboard the transport ships designed specifically for this new immersive experience, which you can see in the artist concept rendering above, released today. It will connect you directly to a spaceport at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, where the story you began in the starcruiser will continue and evolve while exploring the 14-acre land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
