Sample Itinerary, Lightsaber and Bridge Training and More
Disney shared a sample itinerary for the two-night adventure aboard Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, and it includes everything from Sabacc lessons to Dinner featuring Live Music to an Outer Rim Regalia to a Droid Racing competition.
There will be “unexpected story moments” that will have guests choosing between, for example, proving your mettle to join an elite smuggling ring or hiding a stowaway to help the resistance.
The adventure begins as soon as you board Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. You become a part of the galaxy and are able to write your own Star Wars story. In Disney’s own words, it is “part live immersive theater, part themed environment, part culinary extravaganza, part real-life role-playing game—and yet so much more.”
Guests will also be able to choose to join the First Order or the Resistance, to strike a bargain with a gang of smugglers, or “sip a cocktail and watch it all from a safe distance.”
You will encounter old faves like Rey, Kylo Ren, and Chewbacca, and you’ll meet some new characters as well. You will even be able to assist some of them on missions.
The Star Wars: Datapad experience that is featured in the Play Disney Parks app will include your own personalized itinerary of events and activities. It will also include a way to communicate with the crew and others, make choices, receive communications, and it may also be your way to be “invited to secret meetings and adventures.”
Bridge training will give passengers a chance to learn all about the bridge of the Halcyon, and the crew will teach you how to help with navigation, power, defense, and other critical systems that will keep everyone safe. This will come in handy when “unforeseen galactic entanglements” occur.
The journey doesn’t end on the Starcruiser. You will be able to also experience Black Spire Outpost on Batuu (Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios) and even get a ride both Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.
The Halcyon invites and encourages guests to dress up the part. Do you want to dress in full Jedi garb during your adventure or wear your Coruscant best? The choice is yours.

Prior to the pandemic, Disney had slated the hotel’s opening for 2021. The experience starts at Walt Disney World where guests hop into a launch pod and blast into hyperspace. Their pod docks at the starcruiser and, once aboard, visitors will be greeted by the crew and immediately immersed in their own Star Wars adventure.
Windows have been replaced with screens that depict various space vistas throughout the journey.
The luxury liner has a number of different locations for guests to explore including the bridge, where guests learn all about the ship’s navigation and defense systems. There’s also a chance for guests to test their mettle with a lightsaber.
