As Disney pushes towards a Spring 2022 opening of their Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser land-based cruise hotel experience, new permits signal that construction is getting ready to wrap up.
According to a permit filed by Walt Disney Imagineering with the county, WDI is removing construction site trailers and associated utilities – signaling that large-scale construction has wrapped up. Now, we anticipate that more props and finishing touches are taking place inside the structure. As a matter of fact, we’ve previously seen permits related to the installation of show elements.
New aerial photos from bioreconstruct show that the exterior of the building looks to be nearly complete. Here’s a look!
The hotel is located nearby to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Part of the Galactic Starcruiser experience includes an excursion to Batuu.
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Hotel
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 The Sublight Lounge – an inviting retreat for passengers of all ages.
Guests will also be able to experience luxurious meals – included with your stay in the main restaurant. At night, guests might even be treated to an otherworldly dinner show.
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.
