Demand for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Falling Fast, Disney World Giving Away Rooms for Publicity

Demand for the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser seems to have stalled, with no sold-out dates on the slate in 2023 and many dates still open for the rest of 2022. In fact, there have been enough vacancies on recent voyages that Walt Disney World hosted travel agents for a free three-day, two-night experience.

Demand Falling for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

The availability calendar on the website reveals that the remaining cruises in October still have vacancies, and ten dates are available in November. While most of the last two weeks of December (an extremely busy time of year for Walt Disney World) are booked, it seems families aren’t looking to spend Christmas in space.

Reservations for most of 2023 opened in August, and at the time of this article, all voyages were still available through September.

The Starcruiser is closed on May 17 & 18.

Bookings are not open for the last three months of 2023. For 2022, they opened in March, so we expect to see them in the spring for 2023.

Before the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser opened, it went through waves of selling out followed by mass cancellations. Right before the grand opening in March 2022, several months were completely booked. Despite generally positive reactions, cancellations increased after opening.

Back in May, CEO Bob Chapek boasted of continued “high demand” for the Starcruiser and an expectation for the 2-night experience to reach “100% utilization” for the third quarter, meaning they expect the Starcruiser to continue to reach capacity for each “voyage.”

The Starcruiser offers a three-day, two-night immersive “Star Wars” adventure on a fictitious cruise ship where guests become part of a conflict between the Resistance and the First Order. It includes an excursion to Batuu, themed meals, and live entertainment.

It also has a high price tag with trips starting at $4,809 for two guests for a standard cabin, which has one queen-size bed and two twin-size bunks. The price increases if you add more guests, with a family of four looking at upwards of $6,000 for a standard cabin. Guests can also reserve larger rooms, such as the Galaxy Class Suite that sleeps up to six people in two bedrooms. The even larger Grand Captain Suite sleeps up to eight guests at an even higher price point.

While the reason for the falling demand isn’t clear, Disney has mentioned plans in the past to address what happens when interest runs out. Discussions have been conducted regarding adding holidays, changing the plot, or even adjusting the timeline to allow for the inclusion of other characters. The events of the Starcruiser have been cited as why Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will maintain a strict timeline, whereas Disneyland is loosening the rules to allow for characters such as Boba Fett and The Mandalorian to appear. Changes to the Starcruiser story may encourage guests to visit again or interest new guests.

      • Lower prices would be a major factor to my family taking the cruise. Just too expensive for what you get. Cheaper for 4 people to take a disney cruise line 5 day cruise.

        My recent visit I think rise is an overated queue system with an ok ride at the end

      • Four people out of our party of 10 went to the Starcruiser in June. They had a fabulous time, albeit expensive.

        Perhaps Disney could offer a discounted rate for returning customers, since the experience can be different depending on the choices made during the excursion.

      • Why is this not surprising?
        Classic case of Disney being out of touch with their fan base, AGAIN. WAY too expensive for an overly long role play “experience”. They’ve ruined Star Wars since taking it over. The movies are terrible and so are the recent spin offs for Disney network. All the park experiences are not what they have been in the past especially with the disaster of Genie+. I used to be a fan. Not anymore. Wife and I took my nephew to WDW last Feb since my kids are in college now. Probably 10th trip we’ve made and I’m done for good. And so are all the people I’ve talked to recently for the same reasons. Too much $$$$ for much less quality.

    • Price is ridiculous. Im a huge SW fan. All my friends are, as well. And none of us care for the role playing stuff. We just would love to be in a SW theme room. Drop the countless characters/role playing actors/personnel and drop price. Simple.

    • Not being harsh I am a huge star wars fan, but what average family can afford it at that price? Disney is a great place and I won’t knock how they are very good at everything they do, but they are getting to the point that most families could never afford to even set foot in the parks. Average tickets at over $100 each plus food, parking etc even a day trip to Disney for a family of four is more than most can justify. Sorry I like Disney just think it is a shame that is has turned I to all about the money.

  2. I would love to experience it! We have a Star Wars condo right near Disney World, and a few of our guests have done it, and say it’s fabulous. I still just can not reconcile the cost. We’re APs, so can go to DHS any time, but would love to be part of the story. Maybe someday!

    • $6000 for a family of 4? That is absurd! I wouldn’t pay more than $1000. If Walt Disney were alive today he would not charge people so much.

    • The cost is WORTH every penny! I took my family I. Early summer and it was the best experience we’ve had ever anywhere. We booked another one next year and will hopefully try to go every 2-3 years after that. It’s expensive yes but if (and only if) you are avid Star Wars nerds who want to cosplay and pretend you are an alien in the SW universe it’s a dream come true!

Meals with characters, cool star war themes… Love it with a great room ( our own space ship) ,please fix the prices so all can enjoy the star wars galactic journey. Plus it would be nice if you had pet rooms and or ones that accepts esa animals.Thank you

    • We did the cruise this month and it was amazing so much so we want to do it again next year. 3 of us stayed in a 1 bed and it was fantastic. Every detail has been thought of. The only problem with it We wish it was for longer!

      Reply
    • Yeeess! For us as passholders, we can’t justify that the cost includes a day ticket to DHS and essentially lightning lane for the Star Wars attractions. If they had special pricing for passholders reflecting that, it *might* change our perspective, but at the very LEAST, why do we need to pay for a ticket we’ve already paid for?

      I’ve got no problem paying for an experience. We go to Hoop Dee Doo Revue almost every trip and let’s be real: you’re paying for the show when you go there, not the food. But I’m not double-paying for a two day experience, when one of those days is a day in Hollywood Studios and I already have an annual pass.

  3. I have a friend who took a voyage last month. She enjoyed it despite the price, but was upset because apparently they were out of a ton of exclusive merch. Just like paying extra for events, the exclusive merch is part of the price you pay, so if you can’t buy anything, you are missing out on a perk you paid for.

    Reply
    • I have seen a lot of the exclusive merch available at shop Disney. You can only buy it if you have/had a valid reservation. Guest have a window of time they can buy that merch before and after their voyage.

      Reply
      • It’s just a handful of costumes. Not really anything guests really want. She was able to buy earrings because they had those in stock, but they’re not on ShopDisney. It’s irritating when I would witness CMs tell me or other guests that they can buy X product on ShopDisney, when you can’t. I really miss the ShopParks app. They might not have had much from DLR, but they sure did with WDW.

        Anyway, she bought costumes before the trip, like you said, what was available anyway, and I told her that she could call and possibly ask on the phone for certain special things that aren’t on the app, but it’s past her 30 days. If it’s anything like the time I tried calling, she gave up after EIGHT HOURS of being on hold.

  4. The cost of a stay on the Galactic Star Cruiser is absolutely unsustainable. Once the vloggers, influencers, and affluent Star Wars fan have had their stay, there is no one left to shell out the cost. For as much praise as the previous visitors have given the Galactic Star Cruiser, I don’t see them running back to spend $4,800+ again anytime soon. Even the Disney bloggers that have gone twice have only done so because Disney hosted their first visit.

    Reply
    • So one of the perks of spending 6 grand for 2 nights is to spend more money on overpriced but exclusive merchandise? Doesn’t sound like much of a perk.

      Reply
    • I wouldn’t stay there if it was free. Disney is going down like a cement block in the ocean compared to Universal. I would pay for universal because they are innovative and keep attention. Bob Chitpants has raised the price for disney just too damn high. Even if disney makes another park it still wouldn’t draw attention. That’s because they would be doing it because Universal is doing it not because they are trying to draw people in. It’s sad to see where disney has gone but these money hungry company pricks had it coming. Bye disney.

  5. I would love to go on the galactic starcruiser but honestly for me it’s too steep of a price. If they lowered the price, then I would book a trip to go on the galactic starcruiser. It’s just too expensive for the amount of time there. Not worth it unfortunately.

  6. I am absolutely the target audience for this. Love the Disney parks, lifelong Star Wars fan. But I would never be able to afford this, and I’m getting close to being priced out of the parks in general. It really is sad.

    • Walt would be completely ashamed of what the Walt Disney company has become..It cares for nothing or no one…only the almighty dollar…Made my day when DeSantis revoked their special privileges here in Florida. Walt wanted a park for everyone..What percentage of of families do you think could afford to experience this. Disney has plainly expressed in black and white the disregard they have for AP. Disney wants wealthy elites with bottomless pockets to fill their overpriced mediocre hotels. They want those who will spend thousands on week long visits. They have zero interest in the average citizen.

      Reply
  7. This is simply an unsustainable attraction because most people will only put that amount of money out one time. Eventually, they will run out of guests to market this to. It’s cheaper to play “I wannabee a star wars hero” on your own elsewhere.

  8. Price has a lot to do with it. My family can do a 7-night stay in a basic resort and visit each park twice for what it would cost us to stay 2 nights on the Star Cruiser. It is cool, but not that cool.

  9. My daughter, Aaliyah Thomas, was one of the main child actors able to film this experience in the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Hotel commercial/short clip before it opened. She looked just like a mini Rey. She had such a blast filming and doing the experiences they filmed her doing. The cast was so accommodating to her, just making her believe every minute. It was an awesome experience that we would actually love to try as a family but the price is just too-too high for us. It would be nice to win 3-4 tickets to really experience the story ourselves as a family. Hopefully we will be able to experience it in the future if they bring down the price.

  13. I went on a cruise back when it first opened. While I thought the look of everything was amazing, I didn’t like that they wanted me to be constantly playing on my phone, especially when doing the excursion to the planet. Even the tasks on the ship were not as fun when 50 other people were also trying to do the same thing at the same time. I also thought they really needed to improve the quality of food. They were so focused on making it look alien, taste did not seem to be a factor. For what I spent on that trip, the food should have amazed me. In order to get me back, I would want improved food and I would prefer the storyline to be based during the original trilogy.

    Reply
  14. We went, and we had a blast. Each of us paid our $2600, and knew what we were looking for. It is an immersive role playing experience with over 20 named ACTORS in their various roles. Is it expensive? Yes. GOOD Broadway tix will cost you$175 for 3 hours of entertainment…on scale this is less. Your life is made of memories…I put it on a card and pay an extra 125 a month for 18 months…you only live once, so live! WORTH EVERY PENNY!

  15. Yes, the issue is not the story, nor the timeline, the issue is the money. Americans (who are one of the wealthiest people on the planet) have a hard time paying 5k for a 2 night experience, how the hell do they expect people from Argentina, México, Colombia and a India (the countries with more visitors besides the US and Canada) to pay for that? 5k in Mexico buys you a small apartment in a small town. Should I stay 2 nights or eat for a year?

    If they reduce the price to 1k a night I can see a surge of 100% occupancy, even if 1000 is too much is doable, but 5k is just insulting.

  16. The price tag is very high. I would love to do this adventure but unfortunately I cannot afford a $5k price tag for a 2 night excursion even with all that is included. I would love to win a trip.

  17. We went earlier this month and enjoyed it, planning another trip with friends next year.

    Title of the article is misleading as it is all speculation based on less than 100% bookings. I think the price will need to be adjusted at some point, but that will likely come with reduction of some of the features, which would be unfortunate.

  18. I would love love love to go there. But unfortunately its way out of our budget. Its more of a, do we want to drop 6k for a hotel 2 day trip or spend a week in Japan for much less and more entertainment. Kind of thing.

    Its a nice thing for people who have money to spare but for my husband and I who take years to garner that kind of money.. its going a dream thats going up in flames.

    Hell we still havent even gone on our honeymoon because we cant afford it.

  19. Cut the price in HALF. Even at that price it is far & away more money than any other cruise or premium hotel with meals that Disney owns for the same length of stay. It doesn’t matter that it is themed. So is the cruise lines as well as Disney hotels. Price it at HALF of what it is currently priced and you will find every night booked through 2023.

    Reply
  20. I was VERY interested in this. I am an old-school lifelong SW fan who used to dream of something like Starcruiser. Sadly, the experience seems lacking and the price is far too high. The reason demand has dropped off is because everyone who can afford to LARP at a Disney hotel has already been and spent their $$$. Add new storylines/new characters to generate repeat business and either add more bang for the buck or lower the price. Also things like drinks at the Cantina and the Lightsaber experience in Battu should be included in the room price. As should the photo-pass options. The nickel and diming of paying customers is absolutely disgusting and uncalled for.

  21. This is a wonderful experience I believe. Its like a cruise but on land and you’re stationed. I have not yet to experience such amazing adventure but I have heard it’s wonderful. I have a lot of followers on my social media platforms who have gone. And I am still one of the few ones that haven’t been able to make it. I have experience Disney cruises which is beyond memorable. And I bet this is going to be at a whole different galaxy experience. One day I will be able to go with my family. For now, I can only dream.

    Reply
  22. I’m a huge Star Wars fan and I’d love to visit, but the price makes that highly unlikely. If they want to increase demand, lowering the cost is going to be necessary. I imagine there’s a limited number of families who can afford to drop $6k on a 2 night experience. There’s no way I could justify spending that amount of money on something like this even if we could afford it when we could go to Europe, Hawaii, The Caribbean, etc for a week or more for the same price or less.

    Reply
  23. The cost is “out of this world!” Of course, in the very worst way possible. Even if I made enough money to drop five grand for a weekend, I wouldn’t. I love Disney and I have been a Star Wars fan for over 40 years but it’s simply too ridiculous a price to pay for just a weekend, no matter how all-inclusive it is.

    Reply
  24. I am a huge Star Wars fan and so is my son. We would love to take a trip on the Star cruiser but at this price point I can go on a 7 day Star Wars themed cruise for the same price point. The cost of this greatly is overpriced and Disney will start losing money and have to drop the cost. That is when I will go.

    Reply
  25. We were on the 9th cruise, in the middle of March. Was a lot of fun, and I will definitely return. The actors – especially the gaunt Lt Croy – were absolutely phenomenal. Looking forward to new story elements. It would also be cool if there was an extended stay cruise if demand does, where the story moves a little slower.

  27. Maybe it has to do with the unattainable price for the majority of people and families. You would think disney would recognize that fact.
    Drop the price to at least half or more of that cost and maybe just maybe ,more people might considered giving it a go. But I think that all the Ceo cares about is making his bank account bigger.

  29. Simply put Disney got it’s numbers wrong.
    The entry price point is beyond the reach of many for a 2 night stay and for the majority it’s a one and done

  30. Agree on the price is a bit high
    But my wife and I did go in May to check it out. I’m a big Star Wars fan, her not so much, with that being said she actually had a really good time and really got into the whole immersive story line, got dressed up and everything.
    What would be a big improvement would be for them to change the stay itself and make it a full 2 day experience. Let people come the night before, have 2 full days on ship and on Baatu. It would have been nice to been “planet side” at night and see everything lit up. And there is so much to do even adding that extra time you would not have had enough time to accomplish everything. That would be the biggest thing they could add ( and not charge more then they already are)
    We do want to go back with the kids so adding characters and changing the plot on a cycle would be good too.

  31. Dream of a lifetime, but how can any average working class family afford this? If the price was ever dropped, then maybe, but unless you have disposable income, this experience is only catered to the more well off.

  32. My family of four are going on an actual 7 night Disney cruise for less than the price of two on the GSC. Food prices have tripled and we are headed into a recession. This is already a niche experience and there are only so many who have the ability and desire to afford it. I think most people saw this coming. And the way things are going, I don’t think it’ll be much longer before the same thing starts happening to the parks. It’s too bad they are so greedy, because I think if priced right and done well, this could be a really cool thing. It’ll be interesting to see how they navigate this.

  33. We just returned from our Starcruiser trip! We did that plus five additional days at a resort. I can honestly say that this was one of the most incredible experiences..from the food, accommodations, entertainment and service. They thought of the smallest of details and the service reminded you of the Disney experiences that many of us have missed since 2020. It is indeed a hefty cost but food, unique experiences, lightning lanes and exclusive opportunities make it completely worth it. I would honestly suggest a trip there on its own because my family was exhausted after 7 days and it truly is a vacation of its own

  34. The cost is unrealistic, the normal working person cannot afford these prices. Even if it was for a week it’s still too expensive. I would love to do this but could never afford it :(

  35. It amazes me how out of touch some people are. You’re not selling out your $5000 star wars fan boy experience in the midst of constantly being bombarded with recession talk and increased inflation? I’m shocked! Like someone said, once the insta crowd and adult children are done paying, who’s left? Disney World attendance is doing just fine, but this isn’t and you can’t figure out the prices are too high?! I’m your perfect customer, grew up with star wars, have 2 kids that are star wars fans, would love to do this and honestly probably still, but it’s hard to pull the trigger on a $5000 vacation…

  37. Honestly, I’d be much more interested if it utilized a completely different plot.

    “Rebels” with Hera, Ezra, Chopper, Kanan, Sabine, Zeb, Callus, etc would be much more fun and dynamic. Multiple plot lines could be rotated, run, and expanded because there’s a lot of flexibility in that series, even for other characters to show like Ashoka. This would keep it fresh and interesting.

    This just seems really expensive for a stuffy constrained experience.

  38. My family and I did this in August because our son wanted to pay for it. It was better than I anticipated, but I can’t see doing it again. You can have a different experience if you choose the other side or make different choices along the way, but the general storyline is the same.

    Reply
  39. The price. It is all about the price. I am grateful to have the disposable income to spend on this “experience,” but would never do so. I’d rather go to Europe for a week at that price tag. Having seen the influencer’s videos that flooded social media when it first opened, it was clear that Disney was selling the Renaissance Festival in space. Cheesy acting, audience participation, and crappy food. Though I suspect the food at the RF is better than what we’ve seen. If Disney hopes to make any money from this, they should limit the availability to 2-3 months out of the year and each year have a new experience with new cast of characters… at the fraction of the cost.

  40. We get it, you don’t like it. But your insistence that availability means it’s a failure means you fundamentally don’t understand how occupancy works.

  41. Same comment as others; huge Star Wars fan here, mom of five and a husband who would all absolutely love this, but the price of this is sadly more than double what I would seriously consider. We could take a cruise or an international trip for the same cost. I also am fairly claustrophobic and have been concerned by some reports that say it can feel closed in. All this doesn’t stop me from dreaming that it could work out some day.

    Reply
  42. The cost of an ACTUAL 5 day/4 night CRUISE for 4 is a fraction of the cost for this 3 day/2 night “adventure” for 4. This is the only reason demand has dropped. I am as big a Star Wars fan as any, and I have been inside the “starcruiser”. It is awesome, but not awesome enough to justify that hefty price tag.

    Reply
  43. For me, it’s too high a price for too short a stay and it doesn’t even sound like you get any time to just relax. When I go to Disney World, I build in time to just chill & enjoy my surroundings, particularly if I’m staying at a nice resort. I don’t want to spend two days running around taking part in what seems to be a combo scavenger hunt/escape room situation that only seems to allow breaks for food and sleep. Disney would have done better to make this either a dinner theater experience or entertainment space with short-term activities throughout the day. Granted its only been open a few months, but for something with this big a build-up you would expect it to be doing better. Personally I think Chapek laid an egg with this one and if it doesn’t start doing better throughout next year, I think it’s going to be majorly re-evaluated.

  47. There is no way I would ever pay that much for a room, ANYWHERE. I don’t care how fancy or “immersive” it is. Another one of Disney’s money-grabs, nothing more. Oh, and while we were loyal park-goers with our kids for many years, we can’t even afford THAT anymore either.

    Walt would be absoutely horrified that most regular families simply cannot come to Disney-anything these days due to the cost. It’s ridiculous.

  48. I think the target audience is Star Wars fans with a passion for cosplay. We went on the 3rd voyage and I enjoyed it, but my hubby did not. He thought it was going to be similar to an escape room experience with a Star Wars theme. It really wasn’t that. He struggled with getting clues and he’s generally a shy person and took a lot for him to strike up a conversation with a stranger. He largely felt left out and unsure of how to change that. We have lots of suggestions. For the money, it’s about 25-30% overpriced compared to a traditional Disney Cruise.

    Reply
  49. I have to agree with Adam. We are huge Star Wars fans AND Disney fans but alas money does not grow on trees. $4K plus for a three day vacation is too much, no matter how awesome it might be. Additionally, all the price increases and the decrease in the bang for your buck and the amount of rides & activities you can do – it’s almost not worth it anymore. ☹️☹️☹️

  50. It is very simple as to why. It is the cost, lack of familiar characters, the lackluster entertainment (the rave reviews come from people that have gone for free for the most part, there are few outliers). To a smaller extent one is not allowed to completely use their self created character on the trip. The other big problem is that many of the fans don’t trust Disney with the franchise after the last movies release by Disney.

  51. Absolutely no chance of experiencing this adventure. The price is utterly out of reach. What would it take to book a trip? Winning the lottery. I am completely baffled at how an average middle class income family of four could afford this. Or why.

  52. Went, loved it, talked about going again but honestly unless the storyline(s) went through a change I doubt we’ll do it. Would hate to spend so much to have a “repeat experience” (aka pick the same storyline and already know how it all ends)

  53. $4800?!?!?! That’s the problem! My wife and I flew from LA to the Maldives, stayed 5 nights over the water and cost less than $4800. Sure, the galactic starcruuse would be tons of fun, but at the price point, theres a ton other vacation destinations offering more for less.

  54. Glad to hear this. The greed from Disney is at an all time unbelievable high. Just visited California Parks that I used to love but it’s not what it once was. I am over them and the tremendous price jumps lately.

  55. I proposed to my fiancee in cinderella’s castle. We love Disney World BUT nothing Disney could provide would get me to spend that kind of money for essentially 2 1/2 days. When the Kardashian’s and other people who light their cigars with hundred dollar bills get enough of this and the place is nearly empty of people pretending to be something they’re not hopefully the price will come down? Until then I won’t waste my money on an experience that appears to be lame anyway! Let’s face it for this price we should be seeing the actual movie stars portray themselves acting.

  56. It has been my dream to surprise my family with a stay since I heard they were breaking ground. We are 3 generations deep of voracious SW fans. We have not been to the park or the hotel yet because of the incredible cost and I live in Florida.
    Dear Disney,
    When it costs the average American their life savings & 1st born child’s college fund to afford Family time at The Happiest Place On Earth during a major recession & rebuild from Hurricane Ian,or generally anytime just to enter the park, and stay at a regular hotel on site, maybe you prices need to be REDUCED A LOT. If you want to Experience anything as awesome as Hotel SW in luxury as a “Normal Class American” you might as well sell something of value like your home,or 2nd car to do it, on top of your life savings & 1st child’s college tuition because that’s the only way you’ll ever get to to to see the good stuff. Then your company lays down restricted time margins to do “this or that” according to your entrance time, charges $45 for a burger & water $55 if it has any kind of souvenir value to it, $100 for a stuffed animal (that’s the small size), another $200 for “line jumping passes”;that are now NOT really “line jumping passes”;but technically they are line jumping passes;and those are perfect person. Does The Disney Corporation really need to charge so much for entrance and hotel stays even for the fancy ones when you know that park guests are going to spend like crazy once they’re inside the grounds to make up for it?
    I don’t know, these are my thoughts on the situation.
    Also if you want to draw more people back to SW use the Extended Universe and Original Characters.Those of us who grew up with The Real Star Wars, want to see more of The Real Star Wars to our childhood to our kids.

  57. Can’t imagine shelling out $2400 a night for two people to LARP Star Wars. Plus, ive got 5 (sometimes 6) in my family. Whats that make the price, like $10K?! I’ve seen a bunch of vloggers videos, and it just doesn’t seem worth it.

  58. Overpriced. Small hardcore audience. Pretty lame “experiences.” This place is destined to become a lower tier Deluxe with no cast interaction, a basic hotel that anyone could visit. Cos play is not for everyone.

  59. We literally just got off the Starcruiser on Sunday. Most incredible experience I’ve ever had in my life! Worth every single penny. Can’t wait to do it again!

  60. This just does not seem that fun to me. I will just play star wars battlefront and maybe read one of the novels to get a similar fix. I definitely won’t spend that much to be told when I can and can not do something.

  61. I would love to do this. But why does Disney think it has the right to price most people out of it’s adventures? I thought this was supposed to be about happiness not brokeness.

  62. I would love to take my family of 4 on the galactic cruiser- but I just don’t see the value for the money. I am a FL resident and a Disney annual pass holder, so I know what to expect. But for that price, it would truly have to be a one of a kind immersive experience for me to get on board. If the cost was lower, I would probably spring for the experience- my kids would love it!!!

  63. To call this a ‘3 day (2-night) stay is being extremely generous and very misleading. Technically the ‘voyage’ in total is about 46 hours at best, so it’s not even actually 2 full days.

    Reply
  64. It’s the price… I am a lifelong SW fan and go to Disney a couple times a year, but the cost for the short time you are getting is just too high. I’ve got friends with “real” amounts of money who drop 10s of thousands every year at Disney and on DCL, and even they felt the price was just not worth it. Hearing them say “maybe one day” was quite a shock.

  65. As a former Disney CM who worked on this project for many years, this was completely expected. The arrogance of Disney leadership continues to push price and cut back on experience. Until Guests stop going you should expect to see more of this happening.

    Having stayed at the hotel (and growing up as a child of the franchise), I can tell you that the stay will not live up to your expectation (or what you have to pay). I would recommend going to Hollywood Studios (Galaxy’s Edge) for a day then spend the other $7k on a real cruise (you can even do a Sisney SW at sea Cruz for less!).

  66. It would be nice to review it from a disabled person’s pov on Disney’s dime. Otherwise I’d have to win the lottery to be able to afford going.

  67. “The reason for the falling demand isn’t clear”, I think it is clear, lower the prices, 4800$ for two guests? 5000$ for a crystal drink? With these prices I can stay at the contemporary for a week and not a night or two

    Reply
  68. I understand all that you get with this reservation but it’s just way too much. 4800 for two people for two nights is excessive. It would have been there twice except for the price

  69. The packages are way too high, I love star wars!! Chewey, Darth Vader, c3po and Laya, and the quiet like with Yoda is the awesomest!!! Disney has ridiculous prices for hotel stays and when I drive 3 days to Florida , I want my money’s worth!! I want my daughter happy and I want to also enjoy myself!! Meals with characters, cool star war themes… Love it with a great room ( our own space ship) ,please fix the prices so all can enjoy the star wars galactic journey. Plus it would be nice if you had pet rooms and or ones that accepts esa animals.Thank you

  71. I went on the Galactic Starcruiser earlier this year. Due to the price I thought it’d be a once in a lifetime trip but after going, I will definitely be back. So much is included in the price, that it’s a better value than I realized.

  72. When we first heard about the Star Crusier we thought for sure we would take the Youngling as he hummed the Star Wars theme song at 11 months while getting chemo in the crib and Star Wars has been his thing. But once we saw the price tag knew no way it was possible. Probably one of the biggest Disney and Star Wars fans out there. Disney taking over Star Wars was great as our younger generation can experience what we did. But that pric tag is definitely something that needs to be worked on.

  73. It would be magical for my family of 2 married daughters/spouses and 6 grandchildren (14 yrs – 2yrs) to enjoy and publicize an adventure on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.

  74. My husband 3 kids, and I would love to stay but the price is way too expensive for a party of two yet alone a party of 5. Huge Star Wars fans here.

  75. Feels like Di$ney is just out of touch with everything. Did you know you can take a real cruise on a real ship to a real location and go on real excursions and experience different actual cultures for more days and for less $ than a 2 night stay on a fake space cruise. $4k for a “star cruiser cabin” aka hotel room in Orlando Florida with make believe excursions and made up dining menus of foods that you can buy at publix from places that don’t actually exist because you are still in Orlando Florida and people playing dress up and acting like they are from out of this world. Nope not buying what you are selling Di$ney! Seems like a giant waste of time, man hours, resources and space that something that maybe the masses could enjoy. Guess that is the future of Di$ney, playground for the elite. Think the Di$ney motto is “If you can dream it, we will monetize it, and don’t worry we will then price you right out of it”

  76. Definitely not going to pay this price when I paid 1300 to stay 3 nights in a disney hotel with park hopper passes for two days even with two meals a day I’m still under 1500 and even that was more than I wanted to spend. Universal tends to be my first choice now as aharry Potter is winning. I LOVE Star Wars but price is outrageous.

  77. Economy is doo doo. One of the first things that people cut back on are travel and leisure. So it makes sense. Easy money is ending and Disney should will have to adjust

    Reply
  78. The cost is totally ridiculous! Does Disney have any clue what is going on in the world? Do they know inflation is high? The rich will stop going and making it look like interest is high. Bring down the cost and maybe you can fill up your rooms!

  79. If the options increase for a 3 night cruise option and a 4 night cruise option at competitive prices as for a Disney cruise ship I would consider the Galactic Starcruiser.

  80. We did it and loved it. The crew were fantastic and really did an amazing job of staying in timeline and in character. Including our server for dinner. She was amazing. Yes it’s super expensive and we’ve seen real declines in the overall experience in the parks but this was an exception.

    Reply
  81. We went and LOVED it!! I would go back as well, but the price tag is pretty high. I think if they lowered that they would get way more interest and repeat visitors.

  82. Let’s see $6000 for a family of 4. There is your big problem. Disney is catering to the elite when they charge prices like this. Big Star Wars fan and would love to see something like this but I just an average blue collar manufacturing worker and that would be excessive. Don’t care what you do to draw business your out-pricing yourself and killing business by excluding a large part of your customer demographics.

  83. I’m with Adam. I’m the target audience for this adventure, but the price tag is just too steep. I wanted to go for my 50th Birthday next October, but they haven’t opened the dates yet. I was hoping that I could book it now with the 20% down and have the year to save up to pay it off. As it is the Park prices are getting too expensive. We didn’t even go to Disney last trip to Orlando. We spent all our time at Universal or Sea World.

  84. We canceled and changed our minds the second we found out it was themed on the new “Star Wars”. If they made it original trilogy style , even include a theme when it’s the republic…I would not mind, we would book back in an instant. While it remains first order….we remain uninterested

  85. $4800 for 2 people for 2 nights. For the most basic room. Deluxe resorts are approximately $700 for a night. I’ll book a Galactic Cruise when the prices match that and/or I can use my DVC points.

  87. Anybody who pays $6,000 (or more!) for any part of trip to an amusement park needs to have head examined for brain injury, or see a licensed therapist.

  88. Being a fan since 1977, the pricing has most if not all “seniors” on fixed incomes looking through the windows at the emersion unable to afford the experience. Would Disney consider a seniors discount?

  89. I would LOVE to go… on my bucket list… but the cost is a bit out of range for me and my family. Especially now that with all the other costs Disney has added. We use to go to WDW every year but sadly not this year and definitely not on the Starcruiser.

  90. I am dying to get to go on a voyage! However, I would never pay such a high price. Even if I had more than enough money to do so, I wouldn’t spend it on a three night trip.
