Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is embarking soon! The unprecedented voyages to far-off destinations in the galaxy are confirmed to begin boarding procedures starting in 2021.
Confused about what this is? Here’s how we recapped it following the D23 Expo:
First and foremost, you want to think of this place NOT as a hotel (check-in whenever you want) but more like a cruise ship (with predetermined voyage dates). So for this cruise liner, you’ll embark on 2-day, 2-night itineraries where all guests arrive and depart together. From there you map out your own Star Wars story.
Some additional details on the project, courtesy of Disney:
In a new artist concept rendering just released (above), you get a first look at what you’ll see when you arrive for your Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser vacation. The Galactic Starcruiser Terminal is where you’ll begin your Star Wars experience!
From the Starcruiser Terminal, you will enter an exclusive launch pod (above) 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.
