Disney has today released a few more tidbits on the upcoming Star Wars-inspired resort coming to Walt Disney World.

This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with complete immersion into an authentic Star Wars story. Guests’ journey through space will start when everyone departs together for a multiday Stars Wars adventure by boarding a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during a voyage through the galaxy.

At the resort, guests immediately become active citizens of the galaxy and can dress up in the proper attire. Every resort window will also have a view into space. The opportunity for immersion at this resort will also stand out among all Disney resorts around the globe, as it will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a total Star Wars experience.

This will be fun. Prices get raised "See, demand is high!" OR "See, they're not recouping costs fast enough!"

It will be interesting to have price comparisons vs thus past year.

"officially open for general booking Sept 1, 2022, but general bookings are already being accepted by phone today." I'll bet the quickest way for you to make a reservation for any Disney Resort would be to ask for the Galactic Starcruiser, and Bam!, you're magically connected to a Cast Member. Then, you say, 'Oh, I'm sorry, that's not what I was asking about, but, while you're at it, please make a reservation for my family at All Star Music.' ! :D

May 17-18, 2023 is already sold out. So... I'm guessing a buyout from a group event or an internal Disney Corp event.

I'd definitely be interested in knowing what capacity is their break even point.

DCBakerAug 25, 2022

Increased $20 - the Captain's Table is reportedly $50 per guest for 2023 bookings.

They are probably using the cruise ship model of what they consider to be fully occupied. Cruise ships are considered 100% occupied when each stateroom has 2 passengers booked in them - anything over that is extra.

This is in line with my expectations from the start -- that they'd have a year or two of mostly sold out dates, then need to lower the price or just offer some discounts going forward. Of course, that depends on if they care about selling out. They could still be making money on dates that are only 50% sold. They may prefer to keep the current pricing as long as possible regardless of sell-outs.

I wonder what its balance sheet looks like. They have to be making money hand over fist.

MisterPenguinAug 25, 2022

Right now completed cruise dates are outpacing upcoming sold-out cruise dates. No more three leading months of sold-out dates. About the end of September, they will start having cruises that aren't sold out if this rate keeps up. Tho, we won't know how "not-sold-out" they are: 99% occupancy? 85%? 50%?

If they're still bring proprietary about bookings it can't be *that much* of a failure.
