The Disney Wish serves a $5,000 drink onboard ship. How many Guests will pay for the “most expensive drink in the galaxy?”

Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship offers amenities, experiences, an all-new at-sea attraction, and other offerings onboard its newest cruise ship, the Disney Wish, which set the ship apart from all others, including a beverage being hailed as the “most expensive drink in the galaxy.”

The newest member of the Disney Cruise Line fleet arrived at her home port–Port Canaveral–on June 20. Then on June 29, the Disney Wish cruise ship was christened by the “godchildren of the Disney Wish” as a large audience watched from their seats at Port Canaveral.

After the conclusion of the ship’s christening ceremony, droves of media representatives boarded the new ship in preparation for a three-day sailing during which Disney could show off the most impressive highlights of the Disney Wish, not the least of which was a new drink at the ship’s Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge.

The Kaiburr Crystal Drink can only be found onboard the Disney Wish at the Hyperspace Lounge, and while it’s available to Guests who sail aboard the new ship, its price tag might just make it not only the most expensive drink in the galaxy, but the most exclusive as well.

The Kaiburr Crystal drink costs $5,000. Yes, you read that correctly.

The presentation of the Kaiburr Crystal drink is quite impressive; we’ll give it that. But we wonder how many Guests will pay $5,000 for a beverage at the lounge.

Almost immediately after news broke of the exclusive drink, many took to Twitter to poke fun at the most expensive beverage–possibly in the universe. Others shared their frustration with Disney at such a price.

“I’m going to steal the Kaiburr Crystal drink,” tweeted user Sabya.

Morgan Tremaine tweeted, “Wait, this is real???? Why is Disney catering to super rich Star Wars fans? With this and the hotel (that no one is going to), I really don’t understand the strategy.”

User VT52 tweeted, “They should have Jar Jar Binks randomly knock over people’s $5,000 cocktails and go ‘meesa so sorry’ and have it in the contract somewhere that this was part of the experience and absolutely refuse to give them a refund.”

Lilith Lovett tweeted, “It would’ve been a more ethical business practice if Disney had taken up literal highway robbery instead.”

It will be interesting to revisit the topic of the new Kaiburr Crystal drink in a few months to see exactly how many Guests have actually purchased the drink–and whether they felt that the experience was worth the price.

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!
