Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Hotel May “Detour” To Other Planets During “Unexpected Circumstances”

In an interview with, Walt Disney Imagineer Ann Morrow Johnson divulged details for the upcoming Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel. According to Johnson, when the Halcyon sets off next year, its leisurely cruise through the stars may be interrupted with unplanned detours.

A model of the Halcyon starcruiser is viewable by guests for a limited time in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. When guests book the two-night vacation experience for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, debuting at Walt Disney World Resort in 2022, they will stay aboard this glamorous ship as they plunge into an all-immersive Star Wars story that goes beyond anything Disney has created before.

“And just like any other cruise, we have an itinerary. So we have a set list of planets that we will visit. It’s possible that we might take a detour or two if we find ourselves in unexpected circumstances. But you will be able to see those planets, other ships, maybe the occasional asteroid field, out the window as we cruise from place to place.”

Those “unexpected circumstances” could refer to the encounter with Kylo Ren and the First Order or other complications on the journey. Guests will be able to see the planets from the ship’s windows when the Halcyon makes a stop.

Of course, guests will also be able to take an excursion to Batuu via shuttle during the cruise.
