What It's Really Like Inside Disney's Star Wars Hotel

If you and your family are huge Star Wars fans and have dreamed of hopping on the Millenium Falcon and traveling to a galaxy far, far away, then buckle up because you could just get your chance. Well, sort of. Although intergalactic space travel is not exactly within arms reach at the moment, you could get the next best thing with the opening of Disney's Star Wars hotel.

Instead of having to punch in lightspeed calculations into your spacecraft, all it takes is a trip to Bay Lake, Florida, to board the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. The transformation of the themed hotel — which is located just behind Hollywood Studios — was announced back in 2019 and opened its doors on March 1, 2022. This two-night interactive vacation boasts that it is the "most immersive Star Wars story ever created," and includes hands-on events, culinary delights, and plenty of your favorite characters from the popular films. But does the experience make it seem like you are actually in the stars?

What to expect when aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

Once you have chosen between packages that range from $4,000 for a two-person cabin to almost $6,000 for a four-person voyage and booked your stay, you can expect an interactive role-playing adventure from the moment you arrive. When you have boarded the Halcyon Starcruiser — the playful name given to the star-themed hotel — passengers can be dazzled by the sights and sounds of what made the sci-fi films so classic.

Once you make it to your sleeping quarters, you will notice spaceship paneled walls, logo-clad bedspreads, and even animated port-holes that make it look like you are traveling through the galaxy. Kids are treated to intergalactic themed bunk beds that seem as though they are aboard a speeding shuttle. Among other conveniences like pull-out tables, television, and mini-fridge is an interactive droid called D309, which, according to New York Post, acts as an Alexa-type presence in your room.
