Disney’s Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Is Closing in September
Walt Disney World has revealed that it will close down Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, one of its newest and costliest attractions, at the end of September.
The costly experience, which has been open for just over a year, blends elements of the company’s resorts, cruise lines and theme parks into a 48-hour romp in space. First teased during Disney’s D23 Expo in 2019, the Galactic Starcruiser, located near the company’s Orlando, Florida-based Disney World Resort opened in March 2022.
The two-day experience includes a hotel room, all food and drink except alcoholic and specialty beverages, a day trip to the Hollywood Studios park, a Magic Band and valet service at drop-off.
Guests pay from about $1,200 per person per day, with family packages reaching closer to $6,000 for the two days. That is super expensive even by Disney standards, considering that you can possibly have a week-long vacation for a family of four for about the same price.
Walt Disney World says that the final voyage for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will take place September 28-30, 2023.
“Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of our most creative projects ever and has been praised by our Guests and recognized for setting a new bar for innovation and immersive entertainment. This premium experience gave us the opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale of 100 rooms, and we will take what we’ve learned to create future experiences that can reach more of our Guests and fans,” Disney said in its announcement.
