My husband and I went on a two-night “voyage” at Disney's Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser lodge.
For $5,200 we bought a number of meals, particular Lightning Lane passes, character interactions, and extra.
The Disney World lodge was definitely worth the worth for its meals, nice character interactions, and extra.
A keep at Disney's Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is pricey — however, as an expert journey advisor who just lately stayed there, I can confidently say it is price it.
The Starcruiser lodge is Disney World's latest immersive expertise that is greater than only a place to remain. It has particular meals and leisure, and visitors change into a part of the storytelling. Every two-night, three-day keep is geared towards folks of all ages.
I booked the Starcruiser keep as a Christmas present for my husband who has been a Star Wars fan since he was younger.
This is what was included in our journey, plus the add-ons we might've chosen from.
There are just a few varieties of cabins, however we stayed in the usual one
We stayed in the usual cabin because it was simply my husband and me.
Our room got here with a snug queen mattress, bunk beds, rest room, mini desk and chairs, closets with a protected and gentle robes for us to put on, a break up rest room, toiletries, and a “window” that appears out into “area.”
I cherished stargazing out of that “window,” which gave the impression to be a display screen, as I fell asleep every night time. It was so soothing and stress-free.
There are 100 cabins and suites in whole on the ship. There are normal cabins that may sleep as much as 5, galaxy-class suites that sleep as much as 4, and grand-captain suites that sleep as much as eight.
All eating is included with the keep and we had a number of meals and limitless non-alcoholic drinks
The Halcyon feeds you and so they feed you effectively.
The entire eating comes with the price of your lodge keep and most takes place within the Crown of Corellia Eating Room.
On day one, we bought lunch, snacks, and dinner.
On day two, we bought breakfast, lunch, snacks, a quick-service eating credit score (consists of entree and drink) for every individual to make use of on the Batuu tour, dinner, and a dessert buffet on the finish of the night time.
On the third day, we might select from a breakfast buffet or a to-go boxed breakfast.
Non-alcoholic drinks are included and limitless with all meals. My favourite was the blue “milk” and inexperienced “milk,” which will be ordered at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, the place one cup often prices about $8.
I stuffed up a to-go cup with “milk” each time I left the Crown of Corellia Eating Room.
Alcohol and different specialty cocktails within the Sublight Lounge, the bar on the “ship,” are an additional cost.
General, the Starcruiser served one of the best meals I've ever eaten on Disney property, which is large coming from a complete Disney foodie like me.
Everybody obtained Databands, that are particular MagicBands
Databands are unique to the Starcruiser and every individual receives one to make use of through the keep.
These Databands join you along with your knowledge on the “ship” (as MagicBands do within the park). They will let you use easy faucets to unlock your cabin, take part in aspect missions, and extra.
Because you get to maintain them, you should utilize them on future journeys to Disney World.
The character interactions and performances have been on an entire different degree
The crew by no means broke character — not even after we handed them strolling down hallways and interacting with one another.
Our favourite character was Lieutenant Croy, who served within the navy of the First Order. We participated in his aspect missions whereas in Galaxy's Edge. On the Starcruiser you create your individual story, so every customer may need totally different aspect missions with different characters.
Throughout dinner on the primary night time, we met Gaya, a galactic singer, and different performers. The Captain, Liutenant Croy, and the Storm Troopers made appearances on the dinners as effectively.
We additionally did bridge coaching and lightsaber coaching
Bridge coaching was our favourite. It was much like taking part in a collection of mini video games and puzzles.
Lightsaber coaching was enjoyable as effectively, however it felt extra geared towards younger kids whereas bridge coaching felt prefer it was for teenagers and adults.
It would be cool if Disney added a sophisticated degree of lightsaber coaching to make it more difficult for older visitors.
The expertise features a go to to Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios
On day two, we have been transported from our “ship” to Batuu — Disney World's Star Wars-themed land, Galaxy's Edge.
The transportation to get there was so cool. I will not spoil the magic for you, however it was an attraction itself with some enjoyable music.
Through the go to, every visitor receives Lightning Lane entry to make use of at any time for the Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run points of interest. The Lightning Lanes are for one use per trip per individual and often value about $7 to $15 every relying on how widespread an attraction is.
Earlier than you go in your tour you're given particular pins to put on.
We needed to return to our transportation again to the “ship” by 4 p.m. If you happen to missed that or determined to remain within the park later you needed to discover your individual approach again to the Starcruiser.
You can too pay for add-ons like picture packages and eating upgrades
Starcruiser visitors are assured spots at Oga's Cantina, Droid Depot, and Savi's Workshop if they need them. Reservations for these themed spots in Galaxy's Edge will be booked beginning 60 days prematurely out of your voyage date. We booked a reservation at Oga's Cantina as a result of there is a particular Starcruiser mission you'll be able to take part in there.
We tried to pay additional for the Captain's Desk, however snagging a spot was too powerful. This expertise is an additional $30 per individual and seats are restricted. From what I might inform, visitors who participated bought to work together with the Captain and check out additional meals and drinks.
We added on a particular portrait session, which is first-come, first-serve in the event you do not e book it prematurely. A 30-minute picture session value $99 and I counsel reserving it forward of time if you'd like a assured spot.
General, the expertise was definitely worth the worth
I felt the worth I paid was justified for every part that was included on this expertise and watching my husband reside out his greatest Star Wars life was priceless..
Plus the extent of service and leisure, the solid, and the meals have been simply unimaginable.
In case you are a Star Wars fan, I like to recommend this once-in-a-lifetime expertise.
