According to new a new permit filed with the state, Adirondack Scenic is listed as a contractor for set installation for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel near Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
On the permit, the description of work to be completed is “fabrication and installation of sets” and Walt Disney Imagineering is the owner. The end date listed on the permit is notable because it doesn’t expire in a year as is the default on permits. The expiration date on the permit is January 29, 2022, a date entered by Imagineering instead of the standard one year expiration date.
According to the Walt Disney World website, the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel will open in 2021. Of course, it’s likely that Disney could be forced to open the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel in 2022 after halting construction on projects around Walt Disney World. Disney has said that guests will be able to make reservations later this year.
Guests will arrive at the hotel like any other hotel, but it’s billed as something unlike anything else built by Disney. The adventure begins when you arrive at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal at Walt Disney World and check in for your two-night experience.
Once you’ve checked into the hotel, you’ll board a launch pod where you’ll blast off into space and rendezvous with the Halcyon, the ship you’ll spend the next 2-nights aboard. Through windows above, you’ll see yourself leave the real world behind as you jump to hyperspace and draw closer and closer to the Halcyon.
When the Launch Pod docks with the Halcyon and the airlock opens, you will step into the ship’s main deck Atrium to begin your journey through a galaxy far, far away.
A visit aboard the Halcyon becomes a multi-day story that interweaves with members of the crew, other passengers, familiar Star Wars characters, and an excursion to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Visiting the starcruiser’s Bridge to learn about ship systems and how to operate them, including navigation and defense – skills that may come in handy during a journey through this adventure-filled galaxy.
Other areas within the ship include the Engineering Room, where guests can sneak into a crew-only area of the ship and discover the inner workings.
Guests can also complete lightsaber training! Wielding a lightsaber while facing off against a training remote, where you may discover your own connection with the Force.
Of course, it’s not going to all be action. There will be time to head to the Silver C Lounge – an inviting retreat for passengers of all ages.
Every window in the Halcyon – including those in each cabin – has a view of the galaxy beyond, with ever-changing vistas as the ship progresses from place to place.
