Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is heading to Walt Disney World Resort. The immersive two-night hotel experience will boast F&B, onboard activities and characters, and a trip to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

The accommodation attraction will offer a two-night itinerary, with all guests arriving and departing at the same time, much like Disney Cruise Line.

The holiday begins when guests arrive at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal at Walt Disney World, where they’ll enter a Launch Pod to transport them into space.

Visitors will watch as they jump to hyperspace and approach the Halcyon, a luxurious starcruiser, where they’ll be assigned a cabin.

When the Launch Pod docks with the Halcyon, the airlock opens and guests will enter the ship’s main deck Atrium.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will feature activities, which include lightsaber training and visiting the starcruiser’s bridge to learn how to operate ship systems.

Guests will also get to explore the Halcyon, and will spend a day at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

All windows in the Halcyon, including windows in every cabin, provide a view of the galaxy, with scenes constantly changing as the ship moves.

Meanwhile, Walt Disney World Resort has revealed more information about Epcot’s upcoming transformation, teasing the first attraction inspired by Mary Poppins.

Also heading to Epcot is ‘Journey of Water’, inspired by Moana, and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind’, set to include a storytelling roller coaster.

Disney’s D23 Expo 2019 has also released details about plenty of theme park projects, including the Avengers Campus, Frozen and Zootopia expansions, and a new partnership with Cirque du Soleil.
