Are you ready to go inside!?
For those unfamiliar, the Galactic Starcruiser is the latest “resort experience” at Walt Disney World. Guests book a 2-night all-inclusive stay on this Star Wars spaceship and are treated to a resort experience that is simply out of this world.
Starcruiser features immersive storytelling, entertainment, eclectic culinary creations, family-friendly activities (like lightsaber training) and you’ll also have the chance to rub shoulders with many of your favorite Star Wars friends!
It won’t be long before you find yourself completely immersed in the action as you choose whether your want to be part of the Empire or the Resistance and make both friends and foes.
Staterooms feature the latest in space-aged amenities and even offer views of space that constantly change as your venture through a galaxy far, far away.
Your experience also includes a voyage to the planet of Batuu (aka Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios) where the immersive storylines will continue to play out as you climb aboard the Millennium Falcon in Smugglers Run, come face to face with Kylo Ren in Rise of the Resistance, build your own droid or enjoy a drink at Oga’s Cantina!
Here’s a closer look at some of the different areas of the Halcyon captured during a recent visit:
The main atrium serves as the central hub where much of the story unfolds. Above you can see a Stormtropper sharing words with Captain Keevan.
Above you can see Keevan again, welcoming passengers to the ship!
Wait until you see some of the incredible artifacts on board!
We absolutely love this model of the Halcyon!
Throughout the journey guests will see many familiar faces. Here is Chewbacca who was a regular during our visit!
Here are a few more images of the magnificent central atrium.
Next up is an area, that we’re sure most of your are curious about- the rooms!
Galactic Starcruiser Rooms:
Above is a look at hallways leading to guest accommodation aboard the Galactic Starcruiser.
This particular room can sleep a family of four. Upon entering there is a small central corridor with the sleeping area straight ahead and bathroom to the right. To the left is storage.
Above is a look at the restroom. As you can see there is a separate area for the toilet. Also note the Halcyon branding on the towels!
This space-aged resort phone is a nice touch!
As you can see, our room featured a queen bed as well as two twin bunk beds that are fitted into a wall alcove.
Guest rooms are fitted with windows providing a view of a galaxy far, far away!
With all of this exploring, we’ve worked up an appetite.
Here we are in the dining room.
We absolutely love the main menu!
As you can see, this dining experience is dubbed “An Evening With Gaia” who you’ll know as the famous songstress from our previous Starcruiser previews.

Above is a look at our meal, as you can see, the entrée is the braised beef.
We definitely love the space-aced presentation.
You get a huge portion of beef with the tenderloin.
In addition to the formal dining room, there is a lounge area.
This is a great place to stop for a cocktail and some entertainment!
You never know who might turn up!
We love the little pod areas in the lounge where you can have intimate chats!
Above you can get a first look at the bar area.
There was a Snack Bar where we could enjoy sweet treats during our visit.
Early on in our experience we were ushered into the Flight Deck.
It was fun to spend time in the heart of the ship!
Captain Keevan was there to take us through some of the mechanics.
Here she is teaching us how to operate the ship!
A big picture window looks into the flight deck which is a nice touch!
There were even some little droid friends milling about!
We don’t want to give too much away but there is a lot of immersive storytelling during your Flight Deck visit!
Above is a closer look at one of the flight stations.
Not only does action take place in the cockpit but outside in space as well!
Before we knew it, it was time to put our Jedi skills to the test.
Here is a first look at the lightsaber training area aboard the Halcyon.
Different stations outfitted with lasers are used to train you in the ways of Jedi combat.
This aspect of our Star Wars experience was really fun!
Trust us when we say that it does take a bit of practice though!
We like to think we’re more skilled at wielding a lightsaber after this experience!
There were some wonderful surprises to the Starcruiser including this outdoor garden of sorts!
After all this training, it’s time to shop til we drop!
There is a gift shop on board where you can stock up on a wide array of awesome Star Wars merchandise and collectibles that you won’t find anywhere else!
Here’s a look at some of the Galactic Starcruiser merchandise available for purchase.
Guests can even personalize your own lightsaber.

When Disney described this experience as immersive storytelling at its best, they weren’t kidding.
Watching fabulous adventures unfold is half the fun.
You really do feel as if you’re a part of a real-life “Choose Your Own Adventure” book!
The intimate nature of the Starcruiser means that you are placed at the center of the action.
