Using the Datapad for Your Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Trip

You may have used the Play Disney Parks app for adventures around Black Spire Outpost, but today we’re going to show you how the Datapad works for your journey on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. This spoiler-free guide will go over the basics of how to use the Datapad.

Accessing the Datapad

We were given a phone to use as our Datapad, but you can also access it on your personal mobile device. However, Disney is providing iPhones because this version of the Play Disney Parks app is not operating correctly, and some passengers are not receiving the prompts to complete missions.

If you choose to use your own device, first, you’ll need to download the Play Disney Parks app.

When you open the app, sign in with the account corresponding with your reservation. Then you’ll be able to access the Galactic Starcruiser Datapad by clicking the yellow “Play” button.


Much like the Disney Cruise Line uses the Navigator App, the Datapad is where you will find all your cruise information, including your itinerary.

Pictured above is an example of how the itinerary is structured. You can find it anytime by selecting “Events” on the bottom menu. Check your itinerary regularly, as when you obtain secret missions, they will appear here.


The second tab on the menu is Comms, which is how you will communicate with the crew and ask questions.

Multiple comm channels will become available to you as you progress through your journey.

The Voyage Information comm will allow you to access information about your trip through prompts.

You can communicate with Cruise Director Lenka Mok and other characters.

When responding, you are always given a choice between pre-written phrases and questions.

Important notices will appear in the CSL Announcements comm.


The Tools tab on the menu is marked with the Black Spire Outpost logo, as it is the same tools available regularly on Batuu. Here you can access the Aurebesh translator, scan cargo, hack systems, and more.

You may be instructed to use tools when on your Batuu excursion.

Halcyon Map

The app gives you a full map of the Halcyon and Black Spire Outpost. The Halcyon “has” 9 decks, but guests can only access decks 4 through 7.

  1. Do you only get one datapad per group? I’m going with my brothers and they are resistance while I’m first order. I thought it would be more fun if we had competing missions.
