Are you ready for an all-immersive adventure in a galaxy far, far away aboard Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser? Well then take a glimpse at what you can expect during your two-night journey in this new promotional poster we’re sharing today for the first time.
Opening in 2022 at Walt Disney World Resort, Star Wars:
Galactic Starcruiser will invite you into a new kind of “storyliving” as you
travel the galaxy in a finely appointed starship. So far, many details about
this new experience have been as cryptic as a Bothan spy, so it’s exciting to
get another peek at what we have in store. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
- The Halcyon starcruiser,
in the upper-left corner, is your home for this two-night adventure. The sleek
ship is known for its impeccable service, fabulous entertainment and exquisite
dining, all of which you’ll get to enjoy during your vacation. (Side note: You

- There are four people at
the center of the poster – a youngling wearing Jedi robes and wielding a
lightsaber, an adult dressed in the uniform of a First Order officer, a Twi’lek
adult, and another youngling who appears to be holding a piece of technology of
some sort. These figures are meant to represent you, the travelers, because Star
Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is about your choices and how you live your
personal Star Wars stories. Do you want to support the First Order? Live
like a Jedi in training? Or perhaps become a member of high galactic society?
It’s all waiting there for you to discover and decide.
- In front of those central
figures is an R-series astromech droid – but one that seems to have a few
extra bells and whistles. Hmm … I bet there’s a story there, too.
- In the lower left, you see
passengers enjoying the remarkable cuisine offered in the Crown of Corellia
Dining Room, the starcruiser’s enticing supper club. The food and drink
certainly seem otherworldly …
- The image in the lower
right is something I’m incredibly excited for – lightsaber training! That’s
right, as part of your experience, you’ll face off with a training remote similar
to how Luke Skywalker once did and learn the lightsaber’s ancient ways.
- Looming above all this is
the intimidating visage of Kylo Ren. Couple him with those First Order stormtroopers
charging into the scene on the left-hand side and … I have a bad feeling about
this. The Halcyon starcruiser does have a storied past, after all, and a
reputation for finding itself in the middle of galactic conflicts. Luckily
Chewbacca and his trusty bowcaster are there in the upper-right corner.
Remember, it’s not wise to upset a Wookiee!
- And don’t miss what’s
happening at the very bottom of the poster. There’s something very familiar
about those spires – especially to anyone who’s traveled to Batuu. I’ve heard
the Halcyon starcruiser is adding that far-flung planet to its itinerary
starting next year …
So my guess is this poster leaves you with as many questions
as answers. Well, I have good news: We’ll soon be sitting down with Disney
Imagineers to discuss all things Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, and will
share that conversation with you here on the Disney Parks Blog and other Disney
social channels. It will be the most in-depth discussion of this incredible new
experience Walt Disney Imagineering has ever given publicly, so make sure you
keep following us to find out more.
