Regardless of this drink’s whopping price tag, one Guest recently treated themselves to this highly exclusive experience and shared the news most casually.

The news quickly gathered responses commenting on the price of the experience and asking if it had been worth it, as many consider the drinks to be the only thing included when Guests make this purchase.

However, several other perks accompany these fancy space drinks; as Ally (@allison_sorrell) commented, not less impressed by the pricey announcement.

How do people have $5k to just drop on this? I know it comes with so much more than just a drink, but daaaaaaaaaaang

Beci commented she would share a full review of her experience soon, as she posted a second photo of her highly exclusive space cocktails. 

A full review of the experience is coming… But for now, a code is entered and the camtono opens up to reveal four containers.

As we previously reported, The Kaiburr Crystal includes some massive perks for fans of the Star Wars franchise who can treat themselves to this Galactic Senator-worthy drink.

These perks include a visit to Skywalker Ranch, George Lucas’ movie ranch and workplace located in a secluded area near Nicasio, California, in Marin County, as well as a bottle of Sparkling wine from the exclusive Ranch. Guests will also receive a Star Wars backpack, water bottle, other gifts, the chance to keep the silver-plated cups the four space drinks are served in, a Hyperspace-themed room decoration, and a special themed escort off the Disney Wish.

At the moment, there are no specific details regarding the escort off the ship; there surely will be an entertainment component to this experience, probably including some of the characters from the beloved Star Wars universe.

All these benefits make the drink much more attractive. While the experience won’t include a real lightsaber, as some fans commented when the drink was initially announced, they definitely make up for its jaw-dropping price tag.

Marceline Market will celebrate Walt’s most formative years, when he was a young boy growing up on a farm in Marceline, Missouri, and will be a casual, walk-up dining throughout the day, with ten food stalls themed to a beloved Disney animated story, from classics such as Alice in Wonderland (1951) to more recent films like Zootopia (2016).
