Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Resort Hotel

Star Wars Hotel

There is a brand new hotel experience coming to Walt Disney World and it's called Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.

Reservations for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will open later in 2020 and the new Resort hotel will begin welcoming guests in 2021!!

In this first of its kind experience, Disney is inviting guests to become the hero in their own adventure – and they can do it in whatever way they'd like. They will live aboard a "starship" for two days and two nights.

When they arrive at the Galactic Starcruiser at the Walt Disney World Resort, they will come up to a terminal – like a small, private cruise terminal.

They'll then be ushered into a launchpad – a small capsule – where they'll have a simulated experience of blasting off into space.

They can look out the window overhead until they eventually see the ship – the Halcyon – in the distance.

Once the capsule arrives at the Halcyon, the doors of the launchpad will open and guests will emerge into the atrium where the atmosphere will reinforce that they are on a Starcruiser.

The guest cabins will be unlike any place you've ever stayed before. Cabins can sleep up to five people. The bunkbeds look like what we've seen Chewbacca sleep in and the window shows a view out into space.

Guests of all ages will be invited to participate in a variety of activities such as wielding a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote – so, the training guests have done will ultimately pay off. Every guest will also be invited to take a tour of the bridge of the ship where the navigation and defense systems are.

Guests will get to go on a planet excursion to Batuu to visit Black Spire Outpost at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge as part of this experience. Guests will take an exclusive transport and they'll emerge straight out into the land.

The three images below – courtesy of @bioreconstruct on Twitter – give a look at the side of the new Resort and we can see that it will have five floors. There is also a great view of just how close the Starcruiser is to Galaxy's Edge inside Disney's Hollywood Studios.

During the 2019 D23 Expo, guests had the opportunity to visit the Disney Parks Pavilion for a closer look at a model of the Halcyon.
