In honor of May the 4th, Walt Disney World has just revealed that the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser experience will blast off and make its maiden voyage in 2022, fully immersing galactic visitors of all ages into a Star Wars experience like no other. With the power of the Force, and a bit of Disney magic, fans who take part in the experience will be the first to experience Walt Disney Imagineering’s newest lightsaber, shown in the video below:
This lightsaber, bringing us closer and closer to wielding the most powerful and elegant weapon in the galaxy, is a technological marvel, and one that is just a sneak peek of what’s to come.
Guests will embark on a one-of-a-kind journey, bringing them into the story and right into the middle of the action with a new kind of “story living” as they travel the galaxy in style aboard the glamour-filled Halcyon starcruiser. The journey will include a two-night, two days, and twin sun-filled adventure where they will stay in well-appointed cabins, experience out-of-this-world dining, and have a chance to embark on an adventure-filled expedition to Batuu at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The entire experience will give guests a chance to customize their adventure, interact with characters, crew, and other passengers in exciting new ways. All the while, guests will make their very own Star Wars story, bringing them ever closer to the world of that galaxy far far away. Be mindful of your choices; however, as every decision made has the ability to not only help shape your own story but also has the potential to change the fate of the entire galaxy!
