The road will take you directly to the terminal. Pull up under the porte-cochére for complimentary valet service (note: this is your only option, self-parking is not allowed).

SWGS Starcruiser Terminal 10

We experienced white-glove service. The crew opened our doors, took our luggage, and greeted us with a tablet to get us checked in.

We arrived a little early, so we waited outside. Cast Members distributed cold water and classic “Star Wars” music played in the background.

SWGS Check in Bag

We received a bag containing our necessities: a MagicBand and (to our surprise) a Datapad (iPhone) for each guest in our cabin. Instructions for the Datapads are attached to the bag.

The band still has a Mickey head on the end, with a graphic of the Chandrila Star Line overtop.

Each guest receives a Datapad in a plain black case.

SWGS Halcyon Coin

We found another surprise inside the bag — a golden Halcyon commemorative coin. There was one coin given per cabin.

SWGS Halcyon Coin

It features the ship on one side and the Halcyon text logo on the other.

Of course, we had to take the iconic photo with the terminal logo.

SWGS Entering the terminal 1

We were given a warm welcome to the 275th anniversary cruise and asked to proceed in an orderly fashion indoors. Of course, everyone was a little excited and rushed to enter the terminal.

Check-in on your arrival day begins at 1:00 p.m. and runs through 4:00 p.m. Those who arrive early will be bussed to Disney Springs until 1:00 p.m.

  1. Nice. Thanks for posting for us.
    Can’t wait for more updates. I really WANT to do this… but not going to do it if it’s not worth my four figures.

  2. Judging by the photo of the back of the “data pad” and by the color it appears to be an iPhone 12.
    Glad to see it wasn’t some generic Android phone!
