There has never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan. Not only did season 2 of The Mandalorian end with a revelation that gave even The Empire Strikes Back’s iconic twist a run for its galactic credits, but several new live-action shows have been confirmed too. So obviously we’re going to talk about Walt Disney World’s highly anticipated Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser! And with the Halcyon set to dock this year, let’s look at what we know about it so far…
What We Know So Far about Disney’s Star Wars: Galactic StarCruiser
10. The Ship Is Called The ‘Halcyon’
For perhaps the first time ever, you’ll get to experience a ship from the Star Wars universe that isn’t equipped for battle. The Halcyon is a hotel that journeys to faraway galaxies, so you can enjoy out-of-this-world luxury and comfort during your stay. But don’t expect to step foot onto the Halcyon directly from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – no, you’ll be blasting off from Batuu via Launch Pod instead, before docking with the glamorous galactic starcruiser in space!
9. It Connects With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
You won’t have to go far, far away to board the Halcyon. The entrance will be located between the two signature attractions in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge – Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. However, the shuttle-pod transportation system will also be available to create a seamless transition between the galactically positioned starcruiser and the surface of Batuu, making you feel like you’re travelling through space!
8. It’s a 2-Night Experience
Set to be the most immersive hotel experience in the galaxy, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser does come as something of a double-edged lightsaber. The awesome part is that it’s a 2-night experience, but that’s also the downside. However, 2 nights (or 3 days) is undoubtedly ample time for you to be immersed into the world of the Halcyon and forge your own adventure. And as Darth Maul would agree, a double-edged lightsaber isn’t always a bad thing (sorry, Qui-Gon).
