Visitors will meet familiar characters from the world of Star Wars, including Rey, Kylo Ren and Chewbacca. They will also get to know a host of new characters created for the attraction.

Captain Riyola Keevan will lead the voyage aboard the Halcyon starcruiser. Charismatic, strong and respected, the captain can be found on the ship’s bridge.

Cruise Director Lenka Mok is the captain’s right hand and is in charge of entertainment. She’s the go-to crew member for visitors, and is optimistic and joyful.

SK-62O is an astromech droid and Mok’s assistant cruise director. He makes sure that operations are running smoothly and keeps an eye on the ship’s workings.

Sammie the Mechanic is an enthusiastic and proficient mechanic. He will be popular among guests, and always manages to complete his tasks.

D3-O9 is another droid whose main responsibility is running ship logistics. She knows everyone and everything, and loves talking with the starcruiser’s passengers.

First Order Lt. Harman Croy is an ambitious and intimidating official on a special assignment to locate and expose Resistance fighters aboard the ship.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a two-night hotel experience in a galaxy far, far away, is set to embark on its inaugural voyage on March 1, 2022 at Walt Disney World.

Reservations are now open for the immersive attraction, which includes an outing to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as well as lightsaber training and a droid racing competition.
