Disney is opening an all-new, cruise-like Star Wars hotel experience called the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, and it’s become clear that fans from all over are eager to travel to a galaxy far, far away.
The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser — AKA the Halcyon — officially begins welcoming passengers aboard on March 1, 2022, and while we reported that the maiden voyage already booked up, even more nights have reached capacity since then.
So far, select Disney fans have been able to reserve their staterooms aboard the Halcyon, including Club 33 Members, Golden Oak residents, Disney Vacation Club Members, Walt Disney World Annual Passholders, and now, Disney VISA Cardholders.
As you can see in the screenshot below from the official website, voyages taking place on the entire first week of March, the second weekend, as well as May 5 (the day after Star Wars Day, May the Fourth) are fully booked at this time. The following image shows current availability as of Tuesday, October 12.
General booking for this Star Wars hotel opens on October 28, so if you are still waiting for your chance to book your voyage on the Halcyon, keep that in mind. Disney advises Guests to prepare the following information ahead of booking:

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a revolutionary new 2-night experience where you are the hero. You and your group will embark on a first-of-its-kind Star Wars adventure that’s your own. It’s the most immersive Star Wars story ever created—one where you live a bespoke experience and journey further into a Star Wars adventure than you ever dreamed possible.
Arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort terminal, board a launch pod and rendezvous with the magnificent Halcyon starcruiser. Stay in a cabin or suite with an exquisite view of space. Throughout the ship, you’ll interact with an eclectic collection of characters, sit down to exotic galactic cuisine and perhaps even plot a secret mission together.
As the itinerary continues, you’ll take the story further and deeper. Choose your path. Seek out the inner workings of the legendary starship, learn the traditional art of wielding a lightsaber and even jump on a transport to the planet Batuu—where your mission continues at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!
