On the right front panel “BSO” is spelled out in Aurebesh — a sort of common alphabet widely utilized throughout the galaxy. Running vertically in smaller print next to the Aurebesh, “Black Spire Outpost” can be seen.

The Month of Star Wars Continues

May the Fourth was marked by a touching Hollywood Walk of Fame tribute to Carrie Fisher by her daughter Billie Lourd and close friend & co-star Mark Hamill.

As the month continues, though, Star Wars isn’t going away just yet. This entire month will be devoted to the franchise, especially in the parks, as it is the current theme in Disney’s month-by-month 100th anniversary celebration motifs. This past April was all about Earth Day and the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Check out some of the other Star Wars-related experiences, events, and products going on right now:

As well as some May the Fourth offerings still circulating:

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Completely Sold Out

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, the immersive “Star Wars” hotel at Walt Disney World Resort, will permanently close after the final voyage on September 28, which quickly sold out after the closure announcement was made. Bookings closed temporarily but reopened yesterday. Guests waited in hours-long virtual queues to book their final trip to the stars.

We earlier reported that the final two months of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser’s operation was sold out, but voyages were still available in May, June, and July. Those voyages are now all booked up, too. The availability calendar has been removed from the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser website.

No discounts were available for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser when bookings reopened. It’s very unlikely more availability will open for the experience.

Earlier this month, Disney made the surprise announcement that they’d be closing their themed hotel aimed at immersive storytelling permanently after only one year and a few months of operation. Starcruiser has been burdened since before its opening, shrouded in financial troubles, budget cuts, high prices, low occupancy, and inconsistent levels of satisfaction when individuals compare what was delivered with what was initially promised in conceptual stages. Above all, the struggling resort was prohibitively expensive for the vast majority of potentially interested guests, with costs exceeding multiple thousands of dollars for a brief, two-night stay.

Disney CEO Bob Iger reportedly rejected ideas to retheme Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to something like “The Mandalorian,” or to offer tours for day guests.

Though Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser did not perform as well as Disney had hoped, it will be a $300 million tax write-off.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser was generally well-reviewed and has the distinction of winning the 2022 TEA Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement in Brand Experience.
