More Galactic Starcruiser Cancelations

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will start to welcome paying Guests in less than three months. It will give ‘Star Wars’ fans a chance to really be part of the story in a way that has never been experienced before.

March openings as of January 3

Galactic Starcruiser will offer a two night experience, it’s supposed to simulate a cruise in space. There’s one port of call; Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu.

When reservations for the new experience opened, people snatched them up. It didn’t take long for the first three months to be totally booked.

Lately, though, some of the dates are open again, which means that people are canceling. That leads to the question, why? While there is no official word, there are a few possible reasons that make sense.

The most common reason why people have decided to cancel is most likely the rise in Covid cases in Florida. There is just too much uncertainty right now.

April openings as of January 3

There is a strict cancelation policy for the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. If you cancel between 31 and 89 days prior to your date, you will lose 50 percent of the cost. Galactic Starcruiser is not cheap, and that will be a huge loss for many.

Another reason why some people are canceling is because the paid in full date is drawing near. All reservations must be paid 90 days in advance. For some, it is easier to cancel than to wonder about these uncertain times.

It is also unlikely that the indoor face covering policy will go away anytime in the near future. Much of the Galactic Starcruiser experience is indoors and in public areas, which means that face coverings will be part of the experience.

May openings as of January 3

A final reason is that the experience isn’t going to be what was first imagined. We think that most cancelations are for one of the other reasons, since ‘Star Wars’ fans have been dreaming of an experience like this for over 40 years.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
