Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will begin transporting Guests from Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida to a galaxy far, far away beginning in 2021. This was part of a rash of announcements recently made by Walt Disney Imagineering. This is a new type of immersive vacation that only Disney could create. It will be a two-night, cruise-style itinerary where you become the hero of your own adventure in a 24/7 immersive experience of Star Wars storytelling.
In a new artist concept rendering just released (above), you get a first look at what you will see when arriving for a Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser vacation. The Galactic Starcruiser Terminal is where your Star Wars experience will begin!
Whether you arrive via personal vehicle, Disney transportation, or by landspeeder; curb-side check-in prepares you to leave Earth behind, enter Hyperspace and begin your Star Wars story. From the Starcruiser Terminal, Guests will enter an exclusive launch pod (below) for travel up to the Halcyon, the starcruiser in a galaxy far, far away. Through the pod’s viewports, it looks as though you’re traveling through space to approach the massive ship that is much too large to land on any planet.
Spaceport of Call
A “spaceport of call” to Black Spire Outpost is included in the 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 will remain fully in-story as you step aboard the transport ships specifically designed for this new immersive experience. It will connect you directly to a spaceport at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. Here, the story you began in the starcruiser will continue and evolve while exploring the 14-acre land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You can read more about the upcoming experience in our earlier Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser sneak-peek post.
