You don’t have to be Jeff Bezos to go to space. Disney will send you to a galaxy far, far away for about $1,200 per person – but your feet will stay firmly on Earth.
First teased at Disney’s D23 Expo in 2019, the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is an immersive hotel near the Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Announced as a two-day, two-night adventure, this new experience is slated to launch in Spring 2022.
Travel rates depend on your itinerary, the time of year you book your trip, and how many people are staying in your cabin, but this week Disney revealed some sample prices for future adventures.
Between the dates of August 20, 2022 and September 17, 2022, a trip on the Chandrila Star Line, known as the Halcyon, will cost $4,809 for two guests sharing a cabin, or $1,209 per person, per night.
Three guests (two adults and one child) sharing a cabin costs $889 per guest, per night or approximately $5,299 for the full trip.
Four guests per cabin (three adults, one child) costs $5,999 or $749 per guest, per night.
Prices change based on which cabin you select. There are standard rooms and suites. The trip includes entrance tickets to Hollywood Studios park, as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner for each day on the ship. Guests can travel from the starcruiser to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge park during their stay and receive a voucher for a free quick meal in the park.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, Disney had planned to open the hotel for 2021. The experience begins at Walt Disney World, where guests jump into a launch pod and blast into hyperspace. Their pod docks with the starcruiser and once on board, visitors are greeted by the crew and immediately immersed in their very own Star Wars adventure.
Windows have been replaced by screens that show different spatial vistas during the journey.
The deluxe liner has a number of different locations for guests to explore, including the bridge, where guests can learn all about the ship’s navigation and defense systems. There is also a chance for guests to test their mettle with a lightsaber.
