If you were hoping to catch the last trip on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser… you are out of luck.
Star Wars fans worldwide are saddened to hear that the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World Resort will close its final voyage doors on September 30, 2023. After a short stint of less than two years, the Galactic Starcruiser will be no more, and the boutique experience it offered its Guests will be a memory for all who have been lucky enough to partake in it.
The Galactic Starcruiser was a highly anticipated attraction for Disney Park goers and Star Wars fans alike. It offered a premium experience that was like none other, allowing Guests to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before. The Starcruiser was built to be a fully immersive entertainment experience, but unfortunately, the high price tag made it a miss for fans.
Final Voyages Begin for the Starcruiser
The Star Wars hotel was considered a sister attraction to the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme Park area at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It was created to be a unique, one-of-a-kind experience that would transport Guests into the world of Star Wars. This ambitious experience is genuinely unlike anything Disney has ever attempted before. Unfortunately, the $ 2,500-a-night starting pricepoint was enough to make Guests run away in fear. The hotel has struggled to meet capacity since opening. Disney made the tough decision to close the Galactic Starcuriser down on September 30, 2023.
Guests who had booked reservations for the remaining voyages are understandably upset. However, Disney has stated that all Guests with a reservation past September 30 would be allowed to rebook to a date that worked for them. Those Guests have been given priority in choosing the dates that work for them.
Starcruiser Sells out Final Voyage
Understandably, many of those Guests choose to reschedule for the final voyage on September 28-30. This voyage is now sold out. Guests without a current reservation who hope to book a voyage will be allowed to do so on May 26, 2023.
New bookings remain paused until May 26 – but people who were booked on the cancelled October – December voyages were given first priority to rebook dates now through September. Final voyage was obviously a hot ticket. https://t.co/1F2BUUtE8R

It is not yet clear what the Walt Disney Company has planned for the future of the Star Wars franchise in the Disney Parks. Hopefully, an incredible solution will be thought of to continue keeping fans happy for years to come.
