The highly anticipated Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World Resort just released information about one of the Resort’s most interactive dining experiences yet!
The Galactic Starcruiser added yet another groundbreaking dining experience to the two-night Star Wars adventure that’s soaring across the Star Wars universe in 2022.
Captain’s Table, an exclusive add-on dining experience, allows Guests to sit down with actual characters, creatures, and droids from the Star Wars saga and enjoy a delicious and unforgettable dining experience. Dining is included in your stay aboard the Halcyon, but this Captain’s Table experience is an additional cost — though it totally seems worth it for foodies and super fans.
According to the official Walt Disney World website:
Arrange to sit at the captain’s table for an especially memorable dinner experience. Enjoy extra courses—the captain’s favorite dishes—while seated in a prime location in the center of the Crown of Corellia Dining Room.
An additional fee is required for Captain’s Table seating.
Taking a closer look at the concept art above, you can see guests dining with actual Star Wars characters, not just Cast Members in regular costumes.
You can see Twi-lek, Sullustan, and Togruta actually sitting down with regular Guests enjoying their meal. It’s as though you’re really aboard a starcruiser that’s hosting all types of people in the Star Wars universe, and you’re enjoying a meal together as one.
You, the Guest, get to engage in immersive dialogue experiences with these individuals. They’ll most likely talk about their travels, galactic adventures, and opinions about the First Order!
Much like the concept for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (AKA Batuu), we saw similar Star Wars characters planned to walk around the lands and interact with guests. Obviously, this isn’t the case now, as Galaxy’s Edge can expand over multiple years and feature more Guest interactions. But per the official website, this Captain’s Table experience appears that it will be available for booking once Disney releases the booking dates and details, which are hopefully coming soon.
Guests will also be able to visit the Sublight Lounge, an immensely interactive adult-centered experience that allows visits to test their luck at holo-sabacc.
Walt Disney World’s official website states:
You’ll be swept away by this stylish lounge inspired by the Halcyon starcruiser’s historic voyages throughout the galaxy. The classic elegance of the Sublight Lounge makes it the perfect place to sip a beverage and relax—perhaps while conspiring with a charming smuggler or playing a casual game of holo-sabacc.
Disney has an entire “Know Before You Go” webpage on what Guests should expect about the Galactic Starcruiser:
There is no wrong way to experience Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser!
During your voyage, you won’t just meet new and familiar Star Wars Characters, you’ll interact with them in ways you’ve only imagined.
Characters need your help and will ask you to join them on daring missions. You can choose to help them—or not. It’s your choice to engage as little or as much as you want in the experience.
Invitations to participate are waiting for you to discover throughout the ship over the course of the voyage. Choose to assist the First Order, hide a member of the Resistance, become an underworld smuggler or follow your connection to the Force. You can join one faction or switch your allegiance throughout your adventure.
In addition to in-person interactions, you will also have access to special features in the Star Wars: Datapad experience available on your personal device as part of the Play Disney Parks app. You’ll receive messages from the crew and others you may encounter along the way, and you will make choices that impact your adventure, so please be sure to download the Play Disney Parks App before your voyage departure date.
Remember, your Star Wars story is determined by the choices you make and the actions you take—or don’t take. Discover, explore and play… or just sit back and watch it all happen!
Imagineering is going all out with the Galactic Starcruiser, from boarding a transport to begin your two-night excursion to dodging the First Order while onboard and being able to peer out your windows to see the sweeping galaxy.
