Experience Star Wars in an entirely new way at Walt Disney World Resort!  Disney has created a fully-immersive experience for guests in a galaxy far, far away aboard the Galactic Starcruiser Halcyon.

This exciting new adventure will be more like a Disney cruise as guests all board at the same time and are delivered by space pod to the Halcyon in “orbit.”  A 2-day itinerary for overnight guests is full of alien adventure and fun where they become heroes of their own story aboard the luxury starcruiser!

The Halcyon is known across the galaxy for stellar service, luxury accommodations and exotic destinations. Guests will stay in well-appointed cabins with views to outer space.  Dining options abound staffed by aliens from across the cosmos and exciting excursions to Batuu await visitors during their journey.  This isn’t only a luxury star cruise as passengers are expected to mingle with characters, participate in onboard activities and interact with the crew. Here’s a taste of what you can expect embarking on an adventure cruise aboard the Halcyon:

  • While speeding to the starcruiser aboard your Launch Pod, you’ll get a unique view of the ship while on approach.
  • The Launch Pod will dock with the Halcyon and you’ll exit the pod directly into the main atrium of the ship.
  • While aboard the Halcyon, you’ll get caught up in a story in the making as you interact with the crew and other passengers.  As we mentioned before, one of your stops along your journey will be the planet of Batuu which is part of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Activities aboard the Halcyon include:

  • Lightsaber handling with a training remote like Luke used while under the tutelage of Master Yoda.
  • You’ll also be expected to visit the bridge where you’ll be schooled in bridge operations including navigation and defense because you never know when the enemy may attack!

Dining aboard the Halcyon promises to be just as big of an adventure as the starcruise itself. Exotic foods, exotic aliens promise to make every meal a universally appealing experience!
