On Sale Now- The Pirates of the Caribbean Attraction Special from WDW Magazine!

We attended a media preview to get these photos inside Galactic Starcruiser, Disney World’s new Star Wars hotel.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser was built to be the next evolution in Disney experiences that put you right inside the films you love. Situated just outside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Galactic Starcruiser is the Star Wars hotel for which you’ve waited a lifetime.

WDW Magazine CEO, Stephanie Shuster, and Creative Director, Danny Shuster attended the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser media event at Walt Disney World on February 23 and 24, 2022.

And they came back with TONS of photos and video of the inside of the ship!

You’ve likely already seen this wall right outside the entrance to the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel—it is right at the front doors.

You’ve probably also noticed that everyone entering is in full Star Wars-style garb. Due to the fully immersive nature of this resort, all guests need to wear their best intergalactic bounds.
