The power at be finally caved. After struggling for months to fill the staterooms on the Halcyon, Disney World’s ultra-immersive hotel experience, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, is now available at a discount. At least for Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members.
An email announcing a 30% discount was sent out to Disney Vacation Club members, and Disney Fanatic has acquired a copy of it.
On the surface, the special discount states the following:
Step into your own epic Star Wars story and enjoy 30% off original Points Chart values on select 2-night Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser adventures! Eligible Disney Vacation Club® Members can book with Points or a combination of Points and cash*. Terms Apply**.
DVC further elaborates, clarifying that this discount is part of “Membership Extras,” which are “subject to change, availability, or termination without notice.” A $95 nonrefundable transaction fee applies per reservation and must be paid within 72 hours of booking completion. DVC points must be used to pay for at least one DVC Member.
The DVC website states that this offer applies to select “departures” in Winter 2023:
This offer applies to the following departures in the winter of 2023:
- January 11 – 13, 2023

This is the first time ever that Disney has offered a discount of any kind on Star Wars hotel, and something tells this reporter that it will not be the last.
The Walt Disney World Resort describes Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser on its website, in part, as the following:
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a revolutionary new 2-night experience where you are the hero. You and your group will embark on a first-of-its-kind Star Wars adventure that’s your own. It’s the most immersive Star Wars story ever created—one where you live a bespoke experience and journey further into a Star Wars adventure than you ever dreamed possible.
Arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort terminal, board a launch pod and rendezvous with the magnificent Halcyon starcruiser. Stay in a cabin or suite with an exquisite view of space. Throughout the ship, you’ll interact with an eclectic collection of characters, sit down to exotic galactic cuisine and perhaps even plot a secret mission together.
As the itinerary continues, you’ll take the story further and deeper. Choose your path. Seek out the inner workings of the legendary starship, learn the traditional art of wielding a lightsaber and even jump on a transport to the planet Batuu—where your mission continues at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!
