Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser construction - November 2020

Here is an aerial view of the upcoming Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser - currently under construction at Walt Disney World.

Located just behind Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the 2-day, 2-night stay promises a Star Wars experience like no other. Curb-side check-in prepares you to leave Earth behind, jump to lightspeed and begin your Star Wars story. From the Starcruiser Terminal, you will enter an exclusive launch pod for travel up to the Halcyon, your starcruiser in a galaxy far, far away.

Disney had previously announced Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser would open in 2021 following reservations beginning in 2020. The project has been delayed due to COVID-19 but construction is continuing.

You'll have to pay extra for that.

I'm sure the space portal view pulls out so I can plug an HDMI cable in to watch my Roku streamers.

There will definitely be a provision for a secondary emergency egress from the room. I imagine a portion of the wall panel facade surrounding the screen will have easy breakaway / pull off access to the real exterior wall and window, probably with some sort of ‘in case of emergency’ label not shown yet on the mock-up.

Yeah, coming from a guy who saw red EXIT signs on the Enterprise-D Bridge in Las Vegas, there's gonna have to be some suspension of disbelief.

I may be late to the party on this, so I apologize, but would code not require those windows for fire egress...which also would imply that there will have to be a way to access them from inside the room? Maybe in an era of sprinklers a second exit from the room is not required...

Plus (I'm just guessing here but) at those prices, I'm sure you'll get some really cool, very exclusive, Star Wars swag to take home with you.

See, I am thinking that 40's is right about the target demographic for something like this. You are hopefully in the triangular sweet spot of 1) being old enough to have "grown up" with Star Wars, so you have lifelong dedicated fans who have always wanted to live the experience. You also have 2) In your forties you have your 2.5 kids already, but most likely not babies/toddlers. So you have kids who are hopefully fans of the third trilogy of movies, the cartoons, ect, and old enough to play with (spend money on) building light sabers and droids. And 3) in the 40's you are hopefully established enough in a career to have the disposable income to afford this trip AND have possibly/likely have already been to Disney. This immersive experience is likely NOT something for a family who is making this their only trip to visit WDW, and lets face it, for many families, the expense of an on property WDW trip means it is a once in a lifetime experience.

Aren't there enough threads in the Politics and Social Issues zone already?

True. I guess I don't think about that sometimes. My parents always taught me that if I could not afford something, I either had to save to buy it, or rethink if I really needed it.

Debt. It's a helluva thing...
