Time Travel Aboard Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser - My Family Travels

Time travel aboard Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser requires two days and two nights of vacation, but the magic of outer space has never been so close.

We’re fans of space travel. We’ve seen rocket launches and alien crash sites. Our family has read all the sci-fi we could handle and seen every “Star Trek,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Star Wars” movie including “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” – a real nostalgic romp through the Lucasuniverse — now in movie theaters.

We’ve streamed “The Mandalorian” on Disney+ and joined the rebellion at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland and Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. We’ve done it all: That is, until now.

What No One Has Done Before!

Later this year, the Disney reservation office will be taking bookings for their own outer space experience, the two-day two-night Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, which debuts in 2021 at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

We know that it took the Apollo 11 crew four days to arrive at the moon’s surface. And we know that Disney promises an all-immersive experience transporting fans to a galaxy far, far away in just two days.

It seems, from details released to the media, that Disney has, once again, checked all the experience boxes at this new attraction.

2. Blast off together in your launch pod to the Halcyon starcruiser which awaits.

3. Disembark through the ship’s airlock into the starcruiser’s atrium to meet favorite Star Wars characters and creatures.

You’ve begun your 48 hours in space!

4. Bunk with five members of the Dark Side or the Light Side (whatever your persuasion) in cabins that have replicas of Chewbacca’s bunkbed seen in the films.

5. Grab a light saber and practice against a training remote to perfect your skills.

6. Go up to the Bridge, meet the captain and tour the flight control systems.

During this space-time vacation continuum, there will be an escorted trip to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge where you can visit that new land, a remarkably immersive achievement on its own.
