The game-changing, immersive experience was designed to cater directly to Star Wars fans. However, the price tag seemed to outweigh the appeal.
Disney World's Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a unique two-day hotel experience, will be ending its journey this September, having been open for just over a year. Despite its relatively short lifespan, this extraordinary adventure has garnered incredibly high guest satisfaction ratings, making it one of the most beloved attractions in the history of Walt Disney World. In fact, it even received a prestigious Thea Award, recognizing its outstanding achievements in the world of themed entertainment.
Now, let's talk about the price tag. The Galactic Starcruiser experience comes with a hefty cost of around $1,200 per person per day, and if you're considering a family package, it could set you back around $6,000 for the two-day excursion. That's no small sum, especially when you consider that a typical week-long Disney vacation for a family of four can cost a similar amount, depending on factors like hotel accommodations and dining choices.
In a statement, the company mentioned, "This premium, boutique experience allowed us to venture into new territory with a smaller scale of just 100 rooms. As we prepare for its final voyage, we will take the lessons we've learned and apply them to future endeavors, ensuring that more of our guests and fans can enjoy remarkable experiences like this."
As for the fate of the current building and the staff who worked at the Starcruiser, there is no official information available at the moment. We'll have to wait and see what Disney has planned for these aspects.
