Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser construction - November 2020
Posted: Wednesday November 18, 2020 9:09am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

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.

It's becoming a challenge separating the 'trollers' from the 'trollee's' !! 😄

Your destiny lies not on a path, but in your choices. good job, nerds you figured it out.

Exactly. And since the Starcruiser is highly anticipated (as was Galaxy's Edge), there's no good reason whatsoever to oversell. They don't need to attract people. Overpromising can only hurt.

Always under promise and over deliver.

I also agree, but that's still my point. They're overselling it in a way they don't need to. There's no reason to put something out there that even implies it's going to be more than what it is. There's no upside; only downside. It's the same thing they did with Galaxy's Edge. Part of the GE problem was due to cutting things they'd announced, but they still kept referring to "live your own story" like it was going to be something fundamentally different than any other theme park land as opposed to just having a few small things here and there. Not that I'm suggesting the Starcruiser and GE are going to be the same -- I expect the Starcruiser to be much closer to what they hinted GE would be.

I wonder what California would say about that...

I think they mean that everyone can do different things, you won’t be forced to do A then B then C and then D. You can choose to go to the bridge and join the battle or go down to the engineering room or take light sabre class. That’s how it’s tailored to you, by your choices.

UNCgolf13 hours ago

Right, I'm not arguing that. That's exactly what I expect to happen. There will be some choices here and there. That's not how they're marketing it, though, which is my point. They're marketing it like every single person is going to have a unique experience specifically tailored to them and not something done by majority or something similar. There's no chance that happens.

There are only 100 rooms, so 400 people in total for each “voyage”. Don’t see why it’s not do-able. There’s a planetarium-type attraction near me that runs shows about the environment. At certain points it asks the audience to vote for a choice. Depending on how the audience votes, you then see the impact of that choice. Same could be done here.

I actually don't think there will be any upcharge opportunities -- at least at first. I think it would be pretty bad PR to charge people what they're going to charge for an immersive experience, and then tell them to get the full immersive experience, you need to pay even more. I wouldn't be surprised to see some added down the line but I expect they'll make it a fully inclusive one price experience to start (other than merch and booze like you mentioned; I'm sure there will be opportunities to spend more money on that type of thing).
