The eagerly-awaited Galactic Starcruiser hotel will take Guests on a (simulated) two-night voyage through a galaxy far, far away. While aboard the Galactic Starcruiser, Guests will be fully immersed in the Star Wars story, as each decision they make will shape the outcome of their journey.

Now, we have a sneak peek look onboard the Halcyon, including a look at the lightsaber training!

At Destination D23, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Josh D’Amaro revealed his own experience onboard the Halcyon with a sneak peek video.

The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser has been described as a unique, immersive experience that Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek has promised will leave Guests “blown away”.

Characters like Chewbacca, Rey, and Kylo Ren will all be on board and Guests will take a port excursion to Batuu’s Black Spire Outpost in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Galaxy’s Edge.

Making many Star Wars fans jealous, Josh D’Amaro showcased his Jedi skills with the brand new lightsaber training on the Starcruiser, getting a preview of what Guests can expect on their journey to a galaxy far, far away.

At the D23 event held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Walt Disney World, Josh D’Amaro expressed his excitement for the new Star Wars hotel:

“The hotel will be an incredible milestone for fans […] and will be the most immersive Star Wars experience. Guests will be their own heroes of their own stories and live Star Wars. […] Disney has always pushed the boundaries of innovation.”

D’Amaro also got to go to the bridge of the Starcruiser ship, and said: “in real life it is incredible”.

On the bridge, Guests get to push all the buttons, control the ship and even pull the lever to Hyperspace.

It was recently revealed that the “real” lightsaber first unveiled by Disney in April 2021 will not be sold to Guests, and is only for use by Cast Members.

Josh D’Amaro presented this “real” lightsaber to fans at the D23 event but mentioned that the weapon belonged to Rey.
