After seeing Star Wars for the first time, every 10-year-dream old’s has come true: Disney has developed a real-life, functioning lightsaber. It’s debatable if we live in a more civilized age, but it certainly seems to be less sloppy and random than a blaster.
Disney announced information about the much-anticipated Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida as part of May the 4th Be With You, a.k.a. Star Wars Day, where park guests will be able to go on “an all-immersive, two-night holiday experience that goes beyond anything Disney has ever produced before.”
Research and Development at Disney Imagineering. Starting in 2022, as this spectacular new two-night adventure debuts, guests who witness Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will be the first to see it in motion – along with so much more.
Seeing the lightsaber trigger in front of your eyes is just one of the many ways you’ll be immersed in a Star Wars story from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, where your choices and behavior – or even casual interactions – can decide how your personal journey unfolds.
Visitors to the Galactic Starcruiser will also be able to eat and drink in the Corellia Dining Room (“The dining room is a vibrant and accommodating hall that will serve breakfast and lunch to passengers before transitioning each evening into a luxurious multi-course meal of both otherworldly and familiar origins”), in addition to the lightsaber. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel like you’re on an actual spaceship, with viewports and a bunch of weird aliens milling about. I’m going to pull a Holdo maneuver if there’s not at least one Toydarian.
