Staying in a Star Wars hotel connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the ultimate “Take my money, Disney!” concept. And that’s without even knowing much about it.
According to Disney, “This groundbreaking experience is unlike any resort experience you’ve ever seen. From the moment you board your launch pod, it’s a fully-immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship complete with high-end dining, space-view cabins and all of the exciting action you would expect from an authentic Star Wars experience.”
Now that we’ve seen concept art for the immersive “space capsule” guest transportation system and guest cabins, as well as a potential dinner show restaurant built aboard the Chandrila Star Line, forking over the credits to stay here is becoming less and less of an issue and more of an epic financial goal for many travelers. But how much will it actually cost?
According to sources, pricing for the Star Wars hotel will be based around the full 2-night/3-day experience rather than per night (you know, like a cruise, but in space). If you’re going to stay here, it will be a time commitment as well as a financial one, as shorter one-night stays will not be allowed. Much like on the Disney Cruise Line, food, select beverages, and entertainment will also be included as part of the experience.
Cabin for one? Pricing for a 2-night/3-day stay starts at $3,300 for one person, or just over $1,000 per person, per day. Cabins do sleep up to five passengers, so there’s also the option of maxing out the cabin occupancy for a relatively cheaper price per person. A cabin with five passengers would cost $7,200, or roughly $1,440 per person, for a more feasible $480 per person, per day price range.
According to sources, rooms come in two sizes: a regular sized cabin and the larger “Captain’s Quarters” cabin. Each floor is set to have 32 regular cabins and two first-class cabins. This pricing is for the general, regular-sized cabins, as pricing on the larger first-sized cabins is still unknown.
Do note that these prices can change as the hotel is still months, if not years away from opening, and Disney Parks and Resorts might scale these prices up or down based on a combination of demand and occupancy projections. However, these numbers are the current ones being thrown around in discussions regarding the resort.
So, what do you think? Are you excited to visit the Star Wars Hotel at Walt Disney World? Do you think the prices are truly out of this world or are they justified with this being such a unique offering? The good news is, you do still have a bit of time to save before it opens in time for the 50th anniversary of WDW.
