Despite Hefty Price, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Guests Warned Free Pin Cannot Be Replaced If Lost

Cast Members are now warning Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser guests against losing the complimentary “Sigil of the Select” pin they receive when traveling on the box truck from the Halcyon to Batuu despite the voyage’s high cost.

Guests receive this special pin that designates them as a Halcyon Starcruiser passenger.

The pin is not needed to board rides or return to Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser — those are completed using a MagicBand or phone — but it is a nice souvenir. Apparently, several guests have lost their pins and asked for replacements, so Cast Members are now giving an extra briefing about the pins before guests can leave the Halcyon. The pins are given out for free, and given how cheap manufacturing these pins is and the high cost of a Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser voyage, we’re surprised replacements are absolutely off-limits.

Cast Members warned guests on our Christmas cruise that if they wear the pin with the cardboard backing still attached, it’s more likely to fall off. They also noted they cannot issue a new pin but will help guests locate their lost one, which does seem like it would take significantly more time and effort than simply replacing the free pin.

The briefing also added several minutes to the journey time from Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

  1. The policy is probably in place to prevent people from asking for a replacement just so they can profit off it by selling it. Unfortunately the actions of a few create policies for the unfortunate.

  2. I think you are way to worried about about a free pin. If you can afford a $6000 2 day cruise multiple times, seems you can afford another trip if said pin gets lost. Or are you just sore that you can’t sell it some on eBay to help pay for your many trips?
    Be an adult and don’t lose your pin!

  3. The Starcruiser is fun but based on my experience in April it’s not really ready, the college interns making up over 1/2 the crew are under trained and simply not competent and it’s not worth the price. Christmas at the Yacht Club is better, more lux and cheaper.

  4. Good for Disney. To many people that just want more to sell them off. Look at other limited pins, pop corn buckets, and other things that are limited. People get multiples and sell them off at inflated prices. Then you have others that do pin trading that get extras to trade for something else they want, maybe even more than 1 pin because it is a limited edition.
