Star Wars fans may be delighted to know that they can soon board the Galactic Starcruiser. The immersive hotel located at the Walt Disney World Resort is an out-of-this-world experience. However, the excitement died down after the company announced that prices start at US$1200 per person per night.
More than a Hotel
Disney describes the Star Wards: Galactic Starcruiser as “part live immersive theatre, part themed environment, part culinary extravaganza, part real-life role-playing game – and yet so much more.” Apart from the accommodation, guests are also entitled to meals (excluding alcohol) and interactive entertainment. Plus, they get admission to Galaxy’s Edge, a Star Wars-themed land inside the park’s Hollywood Studios.
Galactic Starcruiser Rates
Feel like you’re in a galaxy far, far away when you peak out of the window and relax in the pod-like bunk beds. Sample standard cabin rates for a two-night stay on the Chandrila Star Line Halycon ship costs $4809 for two (2) guests. A family of four with three (3) adults and one (1) child incurs a voyage total of $5999. These rates are for trips dated August 20 to September 27, 2022. They also offer Galaxy Class Suites and Grand Captain Suites that are roomier and come with extra Star War surprises.
Is it worth the Premium?
Although the reception towards the opening of Galactic Starcruiser was positive, fans of the franchise shared their sentiments regarding the premium price. For reference, other Disney resort hotels charge an average of $2,617 plus tax for a four-night stay in one of their family suites. While this is cheaper than an actual trip to space, it’s still more than most are willing to shell out – even for an immersive Star Wars experience.
Galactic Cruiser expands the Star Wars experience at Disney, following the debut of Galaxy’s Edge in 2019. Live your fantasy of seeing a realistic lightsaber up close, attend a bridge training, and dine at the Crown of Corellia on this adventure. Whether or not it’s worth it is subjective, but there’s no denying it’s an attractive addition to the parks.
