Announced late last week, the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser’s last voyage will be from September 28th to the 30th, 2023. Here is the official information, direct from Disney:
“Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of our most creative projects ever and has been praised by our guests and recognized for setting a new bar for innovation and immersive entertainment. This premium, boutique experience gave us the opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale of 100 rooms, and as we prepare for its final voyage, we will take what we’ve learned to create future experiences that can reach more of our guests and fans.” –Walt Disney World spokesperson
- Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World Resort represents a first-of-its-kind new form of highly immersive entertainment, unlike anything that’s been done before. It has received widespread praise and recognition throughout the industry and from the thousands of guests who have experienced it firsthand, including:
- Earning some of the highest guest satisfaction ratings in the history of Walt Disney World.
- Being recognized with Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement from the Themed Entertainment Association, one of the industry’s highest honors.
- We want to deliver immersive experiences at an even greater scale, so we are taking this creative spirit and all we’ve learned with this premium, boutique experience of 100 rooms to focus on future initiatives that can reach more of our guests and fans. As a result, we are setting the final voyage for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser as Sept. 28-30, 2023.
- For more than 100 years, Disney has taken risks to be on the forefront of entertainment experiences. We are constantly pushing the boundaries of creativity and innovation, and evolving our experiences based on key learnings. At Starcruiser, our team has accomplished a lot:
- Creating a “real” lightsaber more than 45 years after the first Star Wars film.
- Coming up with the technology to integrate physical, digital, and live entertainment elements into one cohesive, unique story for each guest.
- Experimenting with new, otherworldly flavors and food and beverage concepts.
- Cultivating an environment where guests and cast members become fully immersed in the story and play.
- We are so proud of all of the cast members and Imagineers who brought Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to life and look forward to delivering an excellent experience for guests during the remaining voyages over the coming months.
At the time of this post, there is no official word on the future of the Halcyon (the building where the events onboard the Galactic Starcruiser take place). As far as the remaining dates left, sales have been suspended until May 26th to accommodate the guests that need to be moved.
On a personal note, I want to send my thoughts and well-wishes to the countless Imagineers, artists, Cast Members, and storytellers at Disney and Lucasfilm for their incredible hard work and passion in making this one-of-a-kind experience come to life.
Once dates open up, there is a chance you can join me and members of the Coffee With Kenobi community from June 12th to the 14th on the Galactic Starcruiser, depending on availability.
