Disney will shut down its $2,400 per person Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser resort after only 18 months

Disney has decided to pull the plug on one of its most ambitious attractions – the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. The “Halcyon” launches its final voyage this fall. Don’t bother trying to book a flight, though. Disney will be busy dealing with those who have reservations past the deadline.

In 2017, Disney World Orlando announced plans for a Star Wars attraction like no other. The Star Wars: Galatic Starcruiser is part hotel, part theme park “ride” that finally opened on March 1 last year. Guests arrive at the park’s transportation depot to board a shuttle that whisks them away from Earth to the luxurious Halcyon Starcruiser for a two-day journey filled with adventure in the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars: Galatic Starcruiser’s last trip will be September 28-30. Disney booked the attraction further out than that and will contact guests with reservations after September to reschedule or cancel trips. A Disney spokesperson speaking with USA Today framed the closure as ending a short-term experiment.

“Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of our most creative projects ever and has been praised by our guests and recognized for setting a new bar for innovation and immersive entertainment,” said the representative. “This premium, boutique experience gave us the opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale of 100 rooms, and as we prepare for its final voyage, we will take what we’ve learned to create future experiences that can reach more of our guests and fans.”
