BREAKING: Disney announces opening date for Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser hotel

This is the one we’ve been waiting for!

Whether you’re an all-out, sold-out Star Wars fan or one of those who’s just beginning an affinity for the galaxy far, far away, the news about a Star Wars-themed hotel at Disney World that is both meticulous in detail and 100% immersive strikes a cord of excitement within all of us!

And today, Disney World has finally announced the opening date of the brand-new Galactic Starcruiser resort hotel!

That’s right! The very first adventurers will depart on March 1, 2022!

Hopeful passengers can begin making boarding reservations next month, on October 28!

Your choices determine what happens during your experience!


The adventure and experience at the Galactic Starcruiser promise to be unlike anything we’ve ever experienced at Disney World. According to Disney, the new Star Wars-themed hotel will be so much more than a hotel:

“Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is like nothing else you’ve ever experienced: part live immersive theater, part themed environment, part culinary extravaganza, part real-life role-playing game—and yet so much more.


While your story unfolds, you’ll have the power to choose your path. Will you follow the rule of the First Order or join the Resistance in a secret plot? Strike a bargain with a gang of smugglers or sit back, sip a cocktail and watch it all from a safe distance?

The choice is yours as you step aboard the most immersive Star Wars story ever created—one where you live your own Star Wars adventure!”

We like the “choose your own path” feature in the experience!

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser opens to travelers on March 1 of next year! Make your bookings early, beginning October 28, to be immersed in the world of Star Wars.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
