Disney World is about to see just how rabid Star Wars fans really are. Its long-awaited Galactic Starcruiser hotel is set to open in 2022, and Disney has finally revealed how much it will cost to immerse yourself in a galaxy far, far away.
A two-night "voyage" for two guests will start at $4,809. The same experience for four guests clocks in at a price that just might tempt you to embrace the dark side: a cool $5,999. Single nights are not available.
To be fair, a couple of nights on the Galactic Starcruiser will get you more than Darth Vader bedding and Yoda-shaped pancakes. Disney is billing it not as a hotel stay but as "a bespoke experience." Included in the price tag: ongoing entertainment that will include role playing and plenty of character interactions, "expertly curated" food and drinks (though not alcohol), admission to Disney's Hollywood Studios, and valet parking.
At the heart of the Galactic Starcruiser experience: the chance to shape your own story, which could mean joining the Resistance, kicking back with smugglers, and even hijacking a First Order ship. Guests are encouraged to come dressed as Star Wars characters, and costumes will be available — for an extra fee, of course.
Disney's theme parks are in sore need of a hit after the pandemic shaved billions from operating revenue in the past year. Disney World and Disneyland have recently reinstated rules requiring masks indoors as COVID-19 cases surge.
