Disney yesterday posted a job position for the Hotel Services director at the upcoming Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser.


Despite the COVID-19 closures and delays, Walt Disney World's Star Wars themed 2 night experience remains on track to open, although a precise opening date is not yet available. Onboarding a Hotel Services director appears to suggest that the construction phase is moving towards to an operational phase.

Here is an overview of the position. You can find out more at the Disney Careers website.

Disney is searching for a seasoned hotelier with senior leadership hospitality experience on land or at sea to serve as Hotel Services Director for our new Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser. As a Hotel Services Director you will lead and implement a unique immersive two-night experience aligned with our Star Wars franchise. A passion for bringing ideas to life, creativity, value a non-traditional work environment, and balance traditional hotel experience with immersive entertainment are all important traits you will need to have to be successful in this role. If selected, you will report to the Regional General Manager – Hotel Operations.

Disney describes the new hotel as a "first-of-its-kind vacation experience where guests will check in for a two-night adventure aboard a glamorous starship. Once onboard, guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey. "

The image above shows a model of the ship called the Halcyon from the Chandrila Star Line, which is where you adventure will take place.

See, at this price point, you shouldn't be able to hate it. It shouldn't be terrible no matter your background, interests, or abilities. From what we've seen and heard, the Starcruiser is a fantastic experience. The main disappointment should be mostly confined to the price or perceived value, but whether something is too expensive is extraordinarily individualized. Flying in an Emirates Suite is exorbitantly expensive, but definitely a great experience. As someone who always flies economy, the price is crazy, but that doesn't make it entirely wretched, because there are some people who can afford it and assign great value to the experience. Fighting about the price to evaluate the experience is worthless as the value of money itself varies drastically between people. The majority of people walk away from the Starcruiser with a positive attitude towards the experience, that's what matters.

Yup, still terrible.

Could you link to someone saying all the reviews are not only good, but exceptionally good?

There are negative reviews online, including some mixed reviews cited in this very thread. But to hear some of you tell it, this thing is 10/10, five stars, A+++ according to every reviewer who’s been. Do you hear how crazy you all sound?

Got a confirmation call yesterday (we ship out in a few weeks) with request for questions and such. Was very pleasant. As we are staying in Boardwalk prior to our cruise our checkout can be moved to noon. There's no longer direct bus transport to GS from the Springs (we were going to go there and change before the checkout news) but Boardwalk will call a cab and we'll get a payment voucher at GS. My son is 11 and doesn't have his own phone yet (a point of contention continuously) but they said they may have loaner devices there. We will probably just bring an ipad. They advised everyone in the party should have their own play disney login for maximum enjoyment.

I don't care if anyone speaks against it. It's dumping on others that that get excited about it that bothers me. As far as only now just getting active, the tone of this board has totally changed from when I joined as well as some of the members. Just speaking my side of it if you must know detective. By all means, complain away. Dump on it. Rag on me if you want. Call me a shill. I couldn't care less.

It’s odd you’ve been here 14 years and only in the last few months actively started to defend the company - and more intriguingly attempt to put down anyone who dare speak against it.

I watched these videos. It was crazy. The whole interview was cringe.

'The most telling and probably honest assessment of the experience' is given by Internet trolls is certainly an opinion one could have, I suppose.

The other thing to consider is what a bad reaction it got when Disney released the first advert which didn't do it justice. Everyone 'celebrating' the fact it was 'awful' and patting themselves on their back with how they 'were right' all along. And yet despite that start it's still selling rooms and still pleasing guests.

Here's what I just don't understand. I am completely against the Splash Mountain re-skin to PatF. Splash is my 3rd favorite ride on property (behind RotR and ToT), and I think it could be just about perfect if it was kept up with. Tiana deserves a place in the parks (if for no other reason than the selfish one that she is my daughter's favorite princess), but let's ADD her, not REPURPOSE an amazing attraction for her. Plus, I have no faith that the redone version will be better or even equal to Splash. But you know what I don't do? I do not hang out on that thread mocking everyone who is excited by it. Who has time for that? Edited to fix a typo.
