We finally got word on Thursday of the name of the Star Wars Hotel and today, during the D23 Expo we found out even more details about this new immersive hotel experience.
The new incredibly immersive hotel will be called Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser and it will be a first of its kind, where it will completely immerse Guests into the Star Wars story. Guests who visit the hotel will take part in a two-night Stars Wars adventure by boarding a starship called the Halcyon, which is owned by the Chadrila Star Line.
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will offer a two-night itinerary where all guests arrive and depart together, similar to what happens on Disney Cruise Line. However, this cruise will be a little different as Guests will be able to have stories unfold around them, becoming active citizens of the galaxy.
The Halcyon is known across the galaxy for its impeccable service and exotic destinations. Onboard, you will stay in well-appointed cabins, experience onboard dining, make a planet-side excursion to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, and more. During your journey, you can delve deeper into your personal Star Wars adventure by participating in onboard activities, interacting with characters, crew, other passengers you meet, and becoming part of the action.
The story when Guests arrive at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal at Walt Disney World. From here, you will enter a Launch Pod to be able to be transported into space. You’ll jump to hyperspace and when you dock with the Halcyon you will step into the ship’s main deck Atrium.
During your stay, you will be able to participate in immersive experiences including wielding a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote, where you may discover your own connection with the Force. Or when visiting the starcruiser’s Bridge where you will be able to learn about ship systems and how to operate them (including navigation and defense), you may need to put your new skills to use. Of course, you’ll also have the opportunity to be connect with the new land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Every window on the ship, including those in each cabin will include a view of space, with ever-changing vistas as the ship sails from place to place.
You will also want to make sure you explore the ship because there are bound to be hidden spaces to be discovered deep in the mechanics of the ship.
Finally, the choices you make during your adventure onboard the Halcyon will help determine how your personal Star Wars story progresses.
For those who are able to board the Halcyon, you’ll absolutely be immersing yourself into a galaxy far, far away. Are you ready to live your Star Wars adventure?
