Disney’s Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Hotel in Orlando, Florida

When you stay at Disney’s Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Hotel in Orlando, Florida, you can board the Halcyon for a two-night immersive adventure. It’s more of an all-sensory, interactive, and almost overwhelming experience than a simple hotel or spectacular set used during filming. A stay at this hotel is about as futuristic as it gets.

You’ll find yourself inside a giant, futuristic spacecraft filled with major set pieces and relics from the Star Wars series as soon as you board the Halcyon for its 275th anniversary trip from Chandrila to Batuu. You’ll be treated to two days and nights of entertainment in this galaxy far, far away, with actors working their magic around you and a 24-hour space-worthy experience.

If you’re a fan of Star Wars, you’ve probably heard of the Halcyon. You’ll be treated to a realistic look at a whole new dimension, with characters like Anakin Skywalker, Padme Amidala, and Lando Calrissian. This Star Wars-themed land is set between Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (2017) and Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019), with its own storyline.

You’ll begin your stay by entering the spaceport, where you’ll board a pod to the main setting. Then you’ll walk through the Atrium, which is home to actors and entertainers acting out individual Star Wars plots in the hopes of enlisting you as an extra cast member and taking the concept of themed Orlando lodging to the next level. Expect nothing too familiar: plotlines here develop organically based on how you and the other guests react. It’s all part of the adventure.

You’ll receive lightsaber training as well as opportunities to block asteroids, steer the ship out of danger, and fire lasers at your opponents. During your stay, you’ll also be able to explore the Starcruiser hotel and gain access to restricted areas such as the cargo hold, brig, and engineering bay.

The neon lights and futuristic decor only add to the immersion, which lasts until you officially exit the Halcyon at the end of your stay. With pod-like designs, spaceship-esque decor, and functional elements that stay firm as you jet off into space, each room at the Starcruiser hotel will have you waking up thinking you’ve actually been transported into a new dimension.

As you walk through the common areas, you’ll notice metal-toned doorways that require secret codes. Look behind you for lightsaber battles or Resistance allies sneaking in. All signs are written in both English and the Aurebesh alphabet, highlighting the importance of detail.

You’re encouraged to dress up during your stay, which will help you fit in with the other cast members, both working and staying at the hotel. Have you forgotten to bring your favorite Star Wars costume? In the gift shop, you’ll find a wide variety of items to add to your collection.

Sure, the package deal is slightly more expensive than your typical two-night Disney World stay, but with meals included and a fully immersive experience from beginning to end, it’s an unmissable adventure for all Star Wars fans.

And, of course, once you’ve completed the entire experience, you can head down to Disney World’s Galaxy’s Edge park to enjoy everything else Disney has to offer, or take a break from the parks and do something unrelated to theme parks.
