Reservations for Disney Star Wars Starcruiser Hotel

How does one reserve a stay at Star Wars Resort? Reservations are not yet open for The Official Star Wars Resort™ as it won’t be opening until 2022, but once they are, guests can book their vacation online or by calling 407-WDW-DISNEY. 

You’ll also be able to book via the Disney mobile app that allows you to save time while booking reservations from anywhere.

How Much Does the Star Wars Hotel Cost?

Disney announced potential rates in August 2021! This new Star Wars experience doesn’t come cheap, but if you’re looking for an unforgettable vacation that your kids (or yourself) are guaranteed to never forget – this might just be it! Rates will depend on your dates of travel, and start at $4,809 for two adults up to $6,000 for 3 adults and one child in a standard cabin. Ages of children are 3-9 years old. These are just STARTING RATES, so it is to be assumed that high season times (holidays, school breaks) could be potentially much more expensive.

What do rates include?

Rates include: a 2 night stay on the Galactic Starcruiser, interactive experiences, food and beverages (alcoholic drinks are extra) on the Starcruiser plus a quick service meal at Batuu, admission to Hollywood Studios, valet parking, and an exclusive MagicBand.

What are the room types and how many people will they sleep?

There are 3 types of hotel rooms aboard the Galactic Starcruiser: a standard cabin, Galaxy Class suite, and Grand Captain Suite.

Sleeping arrangements are similar to what you would expect on a cruise ship. Standard cabins sleep 4-5 people with a queen bed, bunk beds, and a pull down (murphy) bed. The Galaxy Class suite is a one bedroom suite that sleeps 4 people in a queen bed and 2 pull-down beds. The Grand Captain Suite is a 2-bedroom suite with 2 queen beds, 2 bunk beds, and 2 murphy beds that will sleep 8 people (perfect for families or groups!)

Onboard Activities

During an exciting adventure, guests will live out their own Star Wars story. When guests board the “ship” — named the Halcyon — they will be able to step into the Star Wars universe for a fully immersive 2 night adventure. 

Activities onboard will include lightsaber training, interactive Star Wars characters, Star Wars theming, Star Wars dining experiences and more.

The hotel ship will have interactive areas like launch pods and secret meetings will also take place around the ship as you dive deeper into your personalized journey. 

Characters

You’ll also be able to Interact with characters, crew, and fellow passengers in brand new ways! Popular characters like Kylo Ren, Chewbacca or Rey (exact characters have not been announced yet) will be roaming the lobby or could assist you in your story experience, and Stormtroopers may be patrolling the corridors. Disney is truly going to make an epic experience for fans of the characters!

Dining

Two different dining experiences onboard the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser have been announced: The Sublight Lounge and the Crown of Corellia Dining Room. The Sublight Lounge will be more of a bar atmosphere, but will be for the whole family. The Crown of Corellia will be a multi course experience and looks AMAZING! The food will definitely be out of this world. (For dining details and examples, visit the Walt Disney World Starcruiser page).

A quick service meal at Batuu will be included as well. Docking Bay 7 is a great quick service location with themed entrees that are delicious!

Travel to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

As part of your stay on the Galactic Starcruiser, you will “travel” to the planet Batuu for a visit to the Black Spire Outpost. There, you can experience two of the most popular rides at Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run. It remains to be seen if your hotel price will include a guaranteed boarding group on Rise of the Resistance. It is so difficult to grab a boarding group, one would hope that this might be a perk of staying at the hotel.
