PHOTOS, VIDEO: Disney College Program Participants Surprised with Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Roles

Disney College Program has released a new video of participants finding out that they have been chosen for the opening team of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.


Here’s what Disney College Program shared about the surprise:

A few months ago, over one thousand Disney College Program participants attended information sessions about transferring roles and being a part of the opening team for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a revolutionary two-night, immersive experience for guests at Walt Disney World® Resort. Of those, hundreds applied and interviewed for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. After careful consideration, 58 participants were selected to join the opening team.

But how to let them know they are going to be a part of this exciting adventure? Last week, all 58 were invited to a “networking event” at Flamingo Crossings Village with the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser leadership team. Unbeknownst to them, the event was a surprise announcement and celebration that everyone was accepted to join the team!

Upon arrival, participants received an envelope that they were instructed not to open. The event kicked off with introductory speeches from leadership and the Walt Disney World Ambassador team, and then, well, watch and see…!


The video on Instagram includes the moment participants found out they would be working at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser and interviews with some of them about their reactions.


Most, if not all, of the participants were chosen as “Roamers,” which we can assume means they will be roaming the ship but not necessarily a named character part of the plot of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.

Watch a previous video of Cast Members finding out they have been chosen for the opening team as well.
