Disney has recently released new details, renderings, and a 2021 opening date for its Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel. The hotel, located in Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort, will provide an immersive experience via a two-night, cruise-style itinerary where the guests become the heroes of their own adventure.
The newly released renderings showcase the hotel’s entrance and the inside of a “transport ship.” The entrance, or the Galactic Starcruise Terminal, as Disney calls it, acts as an arrival point and lobby for guests. From the Starcruiser Terminal, guests will enter a “launch pod” that will bring them up to the starcruiser portion of the hotel, dubbed the Halcyon. As guests ride in the launch pod, small viewports will give the appearance of traveling through space and approaching the massive Halcyon.

The Halcyon will include The Atrium, the starcruiser’s heart and a place where crew and passengers can gather, and The Bridge, where guests can operate the ship’s navigation and defense systems under the crews guidance. The Silver C Lounge will provide a relaxing atmosphere for guests of all ages to get food and drinks. The Engineering Room allows guests to “sneak” into a crew-only area and discover the inner workings of the ship’s systems. Meanwhile, each passenger cabin has a “window” into space with views of ships and other galactic sights.
A “spaceport of call” to Black Spire Outpost is included in the itinerary where passenger transports will take guests to planet Batuu (Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge). Guests will remain fully immersed in their story as they travel from the hotel to the theme park and back via transport ships designed for this new experience.
Disney has net yet announced a specific date for the Galactic Starcruiser to open.
