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.

"There should be no red EXIT signs. All signage should be in Aurebesh. If you cannot read it you deserve to die in any fire." (there will be no pool to jump into for safety, as we've established)

Next time your wife wants to meet characters you could always go and do something else.


Plust don't forget some adults never went there as a kid so for many of them, its their first time going to the parks and seeing a character for the first time.

Why do adults get so excited for anything fictitious? I mean, Star Wars is complete fiction but a LOT of adults are totally into the stories as if they are real. Look at how many people argue cannon just on this forum. Personally, I enjoy meeting costumed characters, and even dressing up myself. Yes, I know there is a poor CM in the costume pretending to be a favorite character. But, I also know the character is not real in any movie, book, etc. So, what difference does it make? It's just part of having fun, at least for me. I certainly can understand if that is not fun for everyone.

Age has nothing to do with going to Disney. I enjoy interacting with characters along with my grand children. Yes, it is fun.




meeting characters is a fun thing for the young and old to do. for the old, yeah we know its not really them but that is what makes it cool. we are meeing a physical representation of beloved cartoon character. its a fun thing to do at the parks.

There should be a character named Biggs Omas that walks around on the hour yelling, "Let's get ready for some Star Wars!"

If you are talking about proper immersion, then you should never see the words "Star Wars" at all.

Disney will put some unfortunate employee in the suit and make him/her walk around and do nothing. I never understood why adults get so excited for costumed characters. Last year I waited in line for 45 minutes to meet Anna and Elsa. My wife really wanted to meet them. Why I don't know. Even my 13 year old son thought that it was ridiculous. When we finally got to meet them is was so strange and awkward. I didn't know what to say, cause your not who you trying to portray. I just found it to be strange. I guess its not really targeted for adults, but if the younger kids enjoy it then that's cool.

He wouldn't be. Its just made up Star Wars in attempt to sell over price hotel rooms. period! Its a perfect example of Disney's greed.

In 1977 my father took me to see Star Wars in the movie theater. Ever since that trip everything Sc-Fi (for me) was compared to Star Wars. As a child Star Wars fueled my imagination, my childhood was filled with new imaginative Star Wars adventures. I had the toys, the shirts, the records, the trading cards. For me, as a child Star Wars was everything. Even as an adult I buy Star Wars Sideshow and Hot Toys collectibles. Yes I'm a Harry Potter fan. I enjoyed the movies. I haven't read the books yet. But I was an adult when the Harry Potter movies came out, so there isn't the same deep emotional attachment with Harry that I have with Star Wars and that explains my intent. Its ok to criticize something you hold in high regard.
