Why May 26th Is a CRUCIAL Day for Disney World Fans

Disney dropped some HUGE news about its Star Wars hotel this week.

Captain Keevan aboard the Halcyon

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser opened last year for two-night voyages aboard the starship Halcyon that allowed visitors to live out their ULTIMATE Star Wars dreams by becoming part of the onboard Star Wars story. Not only that, but they also got to have unique dining experiences, get lightsaber training, help fly the ship from the bridge, and more. However, Disney announced this week that the Halcyon would make its last voyage at the end of September 2023. Well, that voyage is now officially sold out.

Guests hoping to set sail amongst the stars on the final voyage of the Galactic Starcruiser are now out of luck. That’s because the final voyage from September 28th-30th is completely sold out. Bookings don’t reopen until May 26th, however, anyone with a trip that was already booked after September 2023 is able to reschedule right now. That is likely how the final voyage already sold out since new bookings aren’t open at the moment.


Note that Disney did offer guests with voyages booked for AFTER that date an opportunity to rebook at half off, so some of those reservations for the final voyage could be coming from them. Other dates are still available but don’t expect Disney to release any other discounts to the public.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Atrium

Disney released a statement about the hotel’s closure: “Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of our most creative projects ever and has been praised by our guests and recognized for setting a new bar for innovation and immersive entertainment. This premium, boutique experience gave us the opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale of 100 rooms, and as we prepare for its final voyage, we will take what we’ve learned to create future experiences that can reach more of our guests and fans.”

Characters on the Starcruiser

Trivia time: did you know the Halcyon was the starship where Princess Leia and Han Solo spent their honeymoon? It’s all documented in the novel Star Wars: The Princess and the Scoundrel. So we’re not just losing a cool experience when the Galactic Starcruiser closes, we’re also losing a piece of Star Wars history!

Disney has not yet shared details on what its future plans are for the building that houses the Galactic Starcruiser, but we’ll keep an eye out for any updates.
