As today is big day for the Star Wars fandom for “May The 4th Be You” as fans all across around the world share and treasure for what the 40+ year franchise means to them. As it was announced previously as the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World for an immersive 2-day adventure will be welcoming guests in 2022 instead of this year.
Guests will be part of the franchise’s world as they live, breathe and eat everything Star Wars as they will be onboard a ship called the “Halycon”. They will be staying inside of cabin style bedding and guests will have a chance to choose their own adventure known from the films of the characters, crew and other passengers on board including decision making for how to unfold the story ahead of them. The adventure begins at a terminal and with your fellow party members before departing your intergalactic destination by entering a Launch Pod. As you guessed it and will be jumping into hyperspace into a galaxy far, far away.
Each and every cabin in the windows and will have a view of the galaxy beyond, with ever-changing vistas as the ship progresses from destination to destination. Passengers will able to draw themselves in the story to find hidden spaces deep in the mechanics of the ship for uncovering secrets or even utilize the space for private meetings.
“When the Launch Pod’s airlock slides open, you’ll take your first step into a galaxy far, far away as Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser comes to life all around you. During your stay aboard this glamorous ship, you may interact with an eclectic group of characters both familiar and new, possibly including the starcruiser’s strong and charismatic captain, a plucky ship’s mechanic and a galactic superstar who can captivate an entire room with the crook of one jewel-encrusted purple Twi’lek finger.”
The story is intertwined with Black Spire Outpost on Batuu and able find the where about of the hidden Resistance base as it’s kept away from the First Order as a excursion.
Disney was also able to share more of the dining and entertainment inside of the “Halcyon” as it wasn’t shared previously. Guests will able to enjoy a multi-course meal inside of a restaurant called the “Crown of Corellia Dining Room”.
“The enticing supper club’s name is an homage to Corellia, the planet known galaxy-wide for its shipyards that gave us not only the Halcyon starcruiser, but also the Millennium Falcon. The dining room is a bright and welcoming hall that will offer breakfast and lunch to passengers before transitioning each evening into a lavish multi-course menu of both otherworldly and familiar origins.”
It seems to be that this a reimagined concept if you have followed the development of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and was plans for a dinner and show type of restaurant and now officially coming to the Galactic Starcruiser!
Another beverage and hang spot will be called “The Sublight Lounge” was it was previously called “Silver C Lounge” for an immersive lounge spot to offering up Star Wars themed beverages and interactive games. The beverages aren’t quite sure if they will be the same as Oga’s Cantina at Galaxy’s Edge but, it could be a possibility if they do or make new exclusive new beverages for the Starcruiser.
The one experience that many fans are looking towards for using the force and learning the ancient ways of wielding a lightsaber. Walt Disney Imagineering R&D (Research & Development) have been hard at work in making from fiction to reality as what they are calling it “storyliving” not “storytelling”.
Last month as Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman, Josh D’Amaro teased at the end of a media presentation of wielding a functional working lightsaber as they showed off Rey holding her saber as you can check down below (and it quite beyond impressive!!).
For the meantime over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and for a limited time run, at Walt Disney Presents as a current model is present of the “Halcyon” and can see different views and angles of the model. It was also on display at the previous Disney D23 Expo when it was first shared.
Also if you have the My Disney Experience app or haven’t updated the app yet, as the Galactic Starcruiser is now available to see on the virtual map for Walt Disney World at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Disney hasn’t still shared of when guests can able to book their 2-day adventure or pricing and said more will be shared at later given time. Guests can sign up for email updates by visiting the official site here for more information.
