After opening a land entirely devoted to Star Wars at Walt Disney World in Florida, and Disneyland in California, Disney is moving at light speed by unveiling the first details of its ultimate immersive experience: the Galactic Starcruiser Adventure.
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to open in 2022
Since the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney, the studio has fully exploited the license. In addition to movies and series, amusement parks also benefit from the arrival of this distant galaxy. At Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California, an entire Star Wars land even saw the light of day in 2019 and 2020. Called Galaxy’s Edge, it notably contains an incredible attraction: Rise of the Resistance. Disneyland Paris will also host an area dedicated to Star Wars before 2025.
But that was just the start.
To push visitors’ immersion even further, Walt Disney World will host in spring 2022 a unique three-day and two-night experience called Star Wars: Galactic Starcuiser Adventure.
Between the hotel, the immersive theater and the role-playing game, Galactic Starcruiser is, according to Disney, “the most immersive experience ever created”. And for good reason. Visitors who board this ship will experience their own Star Wars adventure, as if they were its heroes.
Upon their arrival, they will play the role of their choice (be part of the Resistance, the First Order or remain a simple spectator), and will meet different characters from the saga (in costume) who will interact with them. They will take part in stories and surveys. Thanks to screens, the windows of the ship will overlook the cosmos. In other words: visitors will have the ultimate feeling of being in a George Lucas film. A true fan’s dream.
The days will be divided in several activities : visit of the vessel, reception of the captain, themed dinners, shows, construction of lightsabers, training etc … Visitors will of course have access to the attractions of Galaxy’s Edge.
As you can imagine, this experience comes at a price. And it is likely to deter many fans. For the two nights, it will be necessary to count minimum, for a double room with two adults $ 1209 per person per night, for a total of 4,809 dollars (4,061 euros). These exorbitant prices can be explained in particular by the small number of rooms available (barely a hundred).
