Disney Shows Desperation for ‘Star Wars’ Hotel With New $700 Offer

Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Discount

Interested in staying at Disney’s new Star Wars-themed hotel? Well, now is as great of a time as ever as Disney shows booking desperation with a new special offer.

Walt Disney World Resort is home to numerous Value, Moderate, and Deluxe tiered Resort Hotels. While all of the Disney Resorts offer a dose of Disney storytelling and Walt Disney Imagineering design, the most immersive hotel experience currently offered is the new Star Wars-themed-hotel experience, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser first opened less than a year ago, in March 2022. While Guests never leave the ground at Walt Disney World Resort, they are transported into Star Wars storytelling as they set off to space in the Halcyon Starcruiser, where they experience Star Wars-themed food, entertainment, experiences, characters, a theme park visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land, and more. The experience is almost cruise-like, with an itinerary for a two-night voyage.

While the initial opening of the Star Wars hotel drove in large numbers of Star Wars fans, it is obvious booking desire for the Resort experience has dropped way off. While other Disney Resorts easily sell out, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruisers has only a handful of dates unavailable throughout 2023.

It seems like Disney is working to combat the Resort’s low attendance, with its first-ever discount arriving shortly after the return of The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger. Apparently, that discount wasn’t big enough, as now Disney has revealed another offer that could save Guests up to $700.

The offer is an interesting one, as Disney reveals:

“Combine the magic of a Disney Resort hotel stay with the unforgettable adventure of a Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser voyage with this special offer! Save up to $700 on a 2-night stay at select Disney Resort hotels when you book a select Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser voyage from February 5 through September 30, 2023 — valid for stays immediately before or after your voyage.”

Disney notes they are seeking to allow Guests to “extend your adventure” by doubling up on Disney Resort hotel stays.
