Guests who have booked a stay at Walt Disney World’s new Star Wars hotel are now receiving a welcome video that gives them a peek at what’s to come once onboard the Halcyon Starcruiser.

The partnership between Star Wars and Disney has brought so many new possibilities to the Disney Parks with stunning vistas and state-of-the-art rides and attractions. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run are both incredibly-immersive and exciting experiences that plunge Guests right into their own Star Wars adventure. However, one of the most anticipated and highly talked about aspects of Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios Park is the upcoming Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.

The Dan-O Channel on YouTube posted the full welcome video that Guests are starting to receive. The video shows what appears to be some kind of alien concierge for the ship explaining various activities that are available onboard the Halcyon Starcruiser, the ship that Guests will be boarding. See the full video below:

Disney’s Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser is set to open in Walt Disney World on March 1, 2022 with most reservations already booked full. See the full description of this newest Star Wars experience below and on the official Disney World website:

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!
