The Galactic Starcruiser hotel at Walt Disney World Resort was undoubtedly one of Disney’s most ambitious and groundbreaking ventures. With its innovative concept and immersive offerings, this boutique hotel captured the hearts and imaginations of Star Wars fans from around the world. However, much to the dismay of enthusiasts, the doors of this extraordinary establishment were regrettably closed last year, leaving a void in the hearts of Star Wars lovers everywhere.
Now, months after the Halcyon Starcruiser’s final voyage, the experience is being revived in a huge way.
Fans Bring Closed Offering Back to Life
From the moment it was announced, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser had enticed fans with the promise of an unparalleled journey into the Star Wars universe.
Disney’s vision for the Galactic Starcruiser experience was to create an otherworldly immersive entertainment escape where guests could truly find themselves in the story and feel like they were part of an epic space adventure. The level of detail and craftsmanship Walt Disney Imagineering put into every aspect of the hotel was truly commendable, showcasing the Disney Parks commitment to delivering unforgettable experiences.
One of the highlights of the Galactic Starcruiser was undoubtedly the interactive experiences it offered to each guest. Guests had the opportunity to embark on missions, interact with iconic Star Wars characters, and participate in thrilling adventures on the ship and at the Galaxy’s Edge theme park.
Whether it was learning the ways of the Force from a Jedi Master or engaging in a lightsaber battle, every moment was filled with excitement and wonder.
Now, despite the resort hotel being closed, fans will once again be able to experience these phenomenons.
The Starcruiser is Back!
A new fan event called Halcy-Con is coming to the Orlando Florida area this year. The website describes it as “a new fan experience,” saying:
“Make no mistake, this is no traditional convention event. Halcy-Con will be a boutique playground of various fun and informative activities, all created and hosted BY Galactic Starcruiser superfans FOR Galactic Starcruiser superfans. And just like a cruise aboard Galactic Starcruiser, this special fan celebration is designed for less than 500 attendees, so be sure to purchase your event badges right away! Gather your crew, bring your characters back to life once more and we’ll see you at Halcy-Con 2024, a Galactic Starcruiser superfans celebration!”
Just four hours after tickets went on sale, Halcy-Con sold out.
