Amazing Details On “Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge” From Disney Cruise Line

This week we learned a lot about Disney’s newest ship in the fleet the Disney Wish. One of the big releases was regarding a Star Wars themed lounge. talked to Imagineer Danny Handke regarding the details of this lounge and how it will take guests throughout the galaxy.


In the interview Handke discussed his passion for the Star Wars universe as well as his desire to bring the Star Wars movies to all generations on board the new ship.

So where is this lounge staged? Although they thought about how successful Oga’s has been in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, they decided to go with a “Dryden Vos yacht ship?’ We landed on that, doing something sophisticated, which also matches the design of the Disney Wish.”

And as the name implies, hyperspace travel plays a big role in the storytelling and experience. Guests will be jumping to different locations and be able to tour of space, and sampling amazing drinks from those different planets. The illusion will be created via the bar viewport, a widescreen, seven-pane window to the stars.


Handke reveals some of the galactic destinations that fans can look forward to include “Tatooine (set during The Mandalorian), Batuu (“almost a day in the life of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,” featuring the Star Destroyer from Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Hondo Ohnaka’s ship), and Mustafar (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story era). And finally a very exciting visit to the home of the Ewoks, Endor.”

We can’t know about all the drinks yet, but Handke states that beverages are being created from scratch, from beer to blue milk — meaning each will be different from anything found at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

We can’t wait to see all the details that will be revealed between now and the first sailing of Disney’s Wish.


About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
