In recent weeks, The Walt Disney Company has been teasing the official opening of the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Then, the company announced that the Resort will be opening in spring 2022!
Now, we’ve finally gotten our first official look inside of the Galactic Starcruiser experience, from a glimpse of sipping a cocktail with a Twi’Lek to being recruited by the Resistance.
Check out the official Starcruiser commercial below:
Disney Parks Blog pointed out the following highlights about the immersive Star Wars Resort experience, which will last two nights and three nights — and will include a port excursion to Batuu’s Black Spire Outpost (and rides on both Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run!):
We already know our adventure will begin at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal at Walt Disney World, where we’ll enter a launch pod and head out into space. In this new clip, we watch out a viewport as the pod jumps to hyperspace, followed by the sudden appearance of the Halcyon starcruiser, our home base for this immersive two-night adventure in a galaxy far, far away.
As we learned last week from Disney Imagineers, the dining experience will certainly be a highlight of a stay aboard the starcruiser. And you never know whom you may bump into while sipping a beverage.
You see in the commercial how the Resistance is always looking for new recruits – but will we choose to join them?
As our hero’s family rushes into the scene, you get a view out to space over his shoulder, and then a quick look inside the cabin. The sleeping berths we can see are reminiscent of a similar bunk inside the main hold of the Millennium Falcon, no? And those are definitely some nice robes the family is wearing – they look like Jedi ready for action!
When the camera pulls back, we zoom out the cabin’s viewport and into space – where suddenly TIE fighters dart in and hurl some blaster bolts toward the starcruiser. The Imagineers let us know we’ll be trained in bridge operations as part of our stay on the ship, and its laser cannons may come in handy at some point …
Are you looking forward to riding the Halcyon next year?
