Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of Walt Disney World’s most ambitious experiments, giving Guests the chance to live out the Star Wars life of their dreams. Every aspect of this experience is meant to make Guests feel like they’re a character in the vast  Star Wars universal, from the cabins to the eateries to the characters they’ll meet and interact with.

It sounds like a dream for a family of Star Wars fans! But something this immersive and created by Walt Disney Imagineering comes at a price…at least nearly $5,000, to be exact.

For 2 Guests per standard cabin, the starting price is $4,809. For 3 Guests per standard cabin, the starting price is $5,299. Lastly, for 4 Guests per standard cabin, the starting price is $5,999.

Although the Galactic Starcruiser experience is immersive and fantastic, according to those who have visited, the hefty price tag has kept many Disney and Star Wars fans from even trying to visit. Unfortunately, Disney’s latest deal doesn’t seem to be sweetening the pot.

According to Walt Disney World’s official website, Guests can “save up to $700 on a 2-night stay at select Disney Resort hotels when combined with select Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser voyages.”

Not only are Guests critical of how little money this deal saves (or how much it requires one to spend), but they’re also critical of how convoluted it is. Checking out the offer’s official webpage, we can see that Disney has listed the ineligible dates instead of the eligible dates, making things more confusing. From the official website:

  • Offer not valid on select voyages, including those on the following dates:

    • February 16, 18 and 22

    • March 12 and 14

    • April 3, 7, 9, 11 and 13

    • May 3 and 17

    • June 12 and 16

    • July 24

    • August 9, 15, 19, 21 and 23

While this offer may save Guests up to $350 per night at a Disney Resort hotel, it still requires a pricey stay at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. How do you feel about this offer? Is it worth it to save $700 on a stay at a Disney Resort hotel? Or is it more costly than it’s worth?
