2023 Booking Information Now Available for Disney’s Most Immersive Overnight Stay

The Walt Disney World Resort is not only known for its theme parks. Disney Resort hotels offer Guests the chance to stay fully immersed in the magic as they explore all four theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, and more throughout their stay.

While each Resort transports Guests to a unique time and place, where they can feel at home within an immersive setting throughout their stay, there is one overnight experience at Walt Disney World that takes immersion to the next level.

Of course, the most immersive way to stay at Walt Disney World is aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. The Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser, or the Halcyon, launched earlier this year, bringing an opportunity to travel aboard the Halcyon for two nights to Guests visiting Disney World.

The experience itself is more akin to a cruise vacation than a simple overnight stay as dining and activities are (with a few exceptions) included in the cost of a Guests’ voyage. In addition to accommodations, food, and LARP (live action role play)-style activities, a trip aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser also includes a day trip to Batuu, aka Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Availability for the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser has been inconsistent since the ship launched this spring, with some weeks filling to capacity quickly and many others having plenty of availability even as departure nears. Still, we always recommend booking early if you are able to as it never hurts to be on the safe side.

Disney’s official description of the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser reads:

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is like nothing else you’ve ever experienced: part live immersive theater, part themed environment, part culinary extravaganza, part real-life role-playing game—and yet so much more.
As the airlock slides open, your whole world changes.

Step off the launch pod and into your own epic Star Wars story, one where you decide your fate. While your story unfolds, you’ll have the power to choose your path. Will you follow the rule of the First Order or join the Resistance in a secret plot? Strike a bargain with a gang of smugglers or sit back, sip a cocktail and watch it all from a safe distance?

The choice is yours. You are the hero of your very own Star Wars adventure—the most immersive Star Wars experience ever created!
