The new Star Wars Hotel at Walt Disney World is open and boarding. The Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World puts you right in the middle of all the Star Wars Magic! If you’re up for an exciting journey to the planet Batuu, ( in Orlando Florida of course), then this is your opportunity to have a 2-night Immersion Experience, complete with activities, missions, time in Galaxy’s Edge, and more at this Star Wars Hotel in a Galaxy Far Far Away!
What is the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser 2 Night Immersion Experience?
As part of your Disney Resort stay at the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Resort in Walt Disney World you’ll get not only a room, but also a list of activities, meetings, meal times, and unique experiences! From sitting down to exotic meals inside the resort, to building your own lightsaber and working with droids. You’ll also get next-door access into Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Where is the Disney Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Hotel Located?
As you can see from its new arrival on the Walt Disney World digital map below, the new Star Wars Hotel will be just outside of Galaxy’s Edge, behind the Millennium Falcon area, Disney’s Hollywood Studios park. Also, note the large parking lot for guests. This hotel will have direct entry into Galaxy’s Edge as part of the 2-night Immersion experience on the planet Batuu.
The Star Wars Hotel Galactic Starcruiser Experience
This 3 day, 2-night experience is meant mostly for the Star Wars fan. But in truth, this 3-day interactive story may have you and your family feeling like you’re stuck in a murder mystery dinner. While guests will have next-door access to Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World we’re unclear if hotel guests taking part in the experience will be able to “leave the story” to go into the park on their own during their stay.
As part of this experience, you’ll meet Star Wars characters seeking your help to fight the dark side. You can also use the Star Wars Datapad App to enhance your experience! Here are a few of the things included.
The Immersion Activities
As part of the experience, there is a lineup of activities that will fill your days and evenings. You can check out the full itinerary schedule for Galactic Starcruiser for all the details of your daily schedule.
Lightsaber Training ( Ages 7 and up)
Master your skills in wielding a lightsaber as you go against a remote training device that helps you develop your skills.
Explore the Halcyon Galactic Starcruiser Ship and learn all about how this state-of-the-art ship works. The experienced crew teaches all about the inner workings of the ship, including defense features, critical systems, and navigation. As this is all part of the experience, we figure you’ll have to know how to work the ship on your own later for your missions.
Planet Excursions to Batuu ( aka Galaxy’s Edge)
One of the major perks of this experience is its proximity to Hollywood Studio’s Galaxy’s Edge. And your experiences on the rides within Galaxy’s Edge like Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run influence your missions and experience back o the ship! It’s all connected!
Relax in Sublight Lounge
Sublight lounge is the resident oasis for drinks, games, and more. Complete with gaming tables, and a chance to earn credits.
Costumes and Gala
As part of the Star Wars galaxy, you’re welcome to dress up in your best Star Wars cosplay! Or just go basic. Whatever you choose, attending the Gala at the end of your stay is a Disney Must-do as your end-of-cruise celebration.
The immersive experience on the Halcyon is all about the story you craft while you’re there. Much like your role on Smugglers Run, the roles you take on while at the hotel will determine the story and outcome!
With the First Order and the Resistance on board get ready for secret meetings on both sides. And chances are you’ll have to check in to keep up with how your story is progressing.
What’s Included in the Star Wars Hotel Galactic Starcruiser Experience?
- 2-Night Resort Stay
- Exclusive Databand ( aka MagicBand) for each person in your party
- Meals ( excluding alcohol and specialty beverages), including a quick-service meal at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo ( or any other Hollywood Studios select location) is included.

- One-time ride access for Millenium Falcon
- One-time ride access for Rise of the Resistance
- Valet Parking
- Exclusive Missions, Activities, and the chance to be part of your own Star Wars story.
Akin to a “lobby” this space will encompass all sorts of Star Wars characters you know and love. Don’t be surprised if you get questioned, pulled into a mission or enter a launch pod to transport to your room.
After you leave your car you’re transported to an underground transport where you can “dock” into the ship and enter the hotel.
As part of the experience, you get a front-row seat to the galaxy. And since all the windows are technically televisions showing you the galaxy outside, the resort is technically windowless. Think Las Vegas casino windowless, as in you will have no concept of time while staying here.

Staying on the Galactic Starcruiser
Ok, so while we love these details, and the Star Wars franchise, in truth you will probably find us at any other Disney resort for vacation. Mainly, because when we go to Disney it’s because we need the vacation. The idea of being “trapped” in a “window”-less hotel, with some cool gadgets, some mandatory missions, and meetings sound a little stressful to us. But then while we love Star Wars, we’re not die-hards that would trade convenience for this experience just yet. There also seems to be a lot of moving pieces and parts that could compromise our somewhat pricey decision to stay here. What if we don’t get a good role, what if we miss some critical Intel and blow the mission. Will this ruin our stay? Needless to say, we wouldn’t run into these issues at any other resort.
