Reservations are now open for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, the first-of-its-kind, two-night immersive vacation experience in a galaxy far, far away. Debuting March 1, 2022, at Walt Disney World Resort, this Star Wars adventure will make you the hero of your own story as you tour the galaxy aboard the glamorous Halcyon starcruiser.
Throughout your voyage, you’ll see, feel and live Star
Wars, which includes the possibility of meeting heroes of the Resistance
like Rey and Chewbacca, or encountering the malevolent Kylo Ren of the First
Order. But the starcruiser also brings with it a host of characters new to the Star
Wars galaxy, created especially for this experience.
Let’s meet a few of them for the first time!
Captain Riyola Keevan
Charismatic, respected and trustworthy, Captain Keevan will
lead your voyage aboard the Halcyon starcruiser. She is a strong and
decisive leader, endearing herself to both her crew and her passengers by being
fair to all and cool under pressure – a skill she’s learned from her …
“adventurous” history. You’ll likely find the captain on the ship’s bridge –
and you’d be wise to listen carefully and follow her instructions.
Cruise Director Lenka Mok
There is much fun to be had aboard the starcruiser, and
Lenka Mok is your go-to crew member to discover it all. As the captain’s right
hand, Mok is in charge of onboard entertainment, so it’s her job to make sure
your voyage is an adventure. An optimistic and joyful soul, Mok’s happiness is
derived from yours, so this is definitely someone you’ll want to meet!
This astromech droid is Mok’s assistant cruise director, ensuring
things run smoothly and on time. He keeps an eye on all the workings of the
ship and is devoted to Mok and Captain Keevan. And while he loves to have fun
with guests, he’s also good in a pinch if anything should go awry (one of his
many hidden talents).
Sammie the Mechanic
Sammie’s proficiency as the ship’s new mechanic is actually not his most endearing feature. His enthusiasm and good-natured personality quickly won over the starcruiser’s crew and that makes him popular among guests who happen across his path. He’s clearly eager to prove himself on such a well-appointed vessel, and his tasks always seem to get done … somehow.
D3-O9 is another droid
you may see appear on viewscreens onboard the Halcyon starcruiser. Her
primary responsibility is running ship logistics, so she certainly knows
everyone and everything happening onboard during a voyage. But her favorite
part of the job is talking with passengers. Built centuries ago by Chandrila
Star Line’s founder, D3 has seen the ship’s history – and the entire galaxy – evolve,
and she’s not shy about sharing her knowledge and opinions with passengers.
First Order Lt. Harman Croy
While the Halcyon starcruiser is a pleasure vessel,
this is a stormy time in the galaxy as battles rage between the First Order and
the Resistance – and it’s often impossible to avoid the conflict. The ambitious
and intimidating Lt. Croy is on special assignment to root out and expose any
Resistance fighters who are rumored to be aboard the ship. Will you help him?
Will you support the Resistance? Will you just sit back and see how the whole
thing plays out? The choice is yours.
We’ll have much more on Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser as we prepare for its debut in March, so keep following along with us here on the Disney Parks Blog for all the goings-on from that galaxy far, far away.
