Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser voyages cut to twice per week in the fall as demand stalls

Posted: Tuesday March 7, 2023 10:@1am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney continues to adjust operations at Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser in Walt Disney World as demand for the lavish two-night experience wanes.

The latest Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser schedule for the fall season shows most weeks having only two departures per week.

After stronger-than-expected initial sales, Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser bookings have stalled, forcing Disney to look to save costs and boost bookings.

Most recently, Disney began canceling voyages in the summer that had very few bookings, moving guests to other dates with a 50% discount for the inconvenience.

We have seen discounts for Disney Vacation Club members using points and offers on resort hotel stays before or after a Star Cruiser Voyage.

Cast Members are now also eligible for a 50% discount on select 2-night Starcruiser voyages.

Not according to some my friend :D

We went and liked it a lot and are not influencers and had to pay. I guess that's 'proof'?

You obviously don't exist my friend and your experience and opinion doesn't matter because somebody has made the blanket statement that all good reviews are from influencers who didn't pay :D

Ok, as you asked. A paying guest giving their review. You wanted proving wrong, here you go.

Completely untrue, free trips were just for a few days. There's plenty of great reviews from paying guests. It's one thing having an opinion that you don't like something, it's another making a statement that isn't factually true.

I mean I'd like to be an influencer and get the money we paid back - I promise I'll still say I enjoyed it! :D

I'm not. Your post focused on execution -- that the Starcruiser was poorly designed and the experience itself is bad. That's apparently not the case, regardless of how you or I might personally feel about how it looks. People who have been seem to think the execution is excellent and actually have said things along the lines of "it's worth every penny". I think we're arriving at the same conclusion (or at least a similar one), but the overall point is different. EDIT: To clarify further -- I think the price point is the problem, but it's a problem separate from the execution. Even if everyone agreed that the execution was absolutely perfect, the price point would still be too high. There just aren't enough people who are A. big enough Star Wars fans (or potentially themed experience fans in general, but if someone hates Star Wars they likely still wouldn't care about this) to be interested, who B. want a LARP experience (because there are plenty of people who do not want this) and C. can afford the price.

Not true. Only some were. And that was only for one cruise. That vast majority of positive reviews posted in this thread are from people who paid. And some of those free-loaders went back on their own dime because they have a policy of not reviewing something they didn't pay for themselves.

I think if you re-read my post you might see you're making my point for me.

And those people were Disney "Influencers" who got to experience it free of charge.

"So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view" - Obi Wan I KNEW iT! StarCruiser is being killed by it's evil self programming, only to be reincarnated as an Empire driven ship. It's not that the ship isn't being filled, it's that the people attending are being assimilated and turned into borg and cybermen .... uh... I may have my sci fi mixed up. What was in that coffee?
