2023 WDW Magazine Wall Calendar- Featuring Disney Castles of the World! Pre-order today for free US shipping!

We attended a media preview and snapped photos of the Galactic Starcruiser food you’ll encounter on your 2-night voyage on the Halcyon.

Ahead of the maiden voyage on March 1, the Galactic Starcruiser (Disney’s newest Star Wars hotel) opened the doors of the Halcyon ship for members of the media to explore. We toured the bridge, tried our hand at lightsaber training, saw inside the cabins, and—most importantly—got to taste all the delicious Galactic Starcruiser food.

Launch into hyperspace to jump ahead to …

WDW Magazine co-owners Steph and Danny have a full stay booked next month, so we’ll offer up deeper food reviews at that time (including a mega spread on all things Galactic Starcruiser in the June issue of WDW Magazine, including food reviews, inside looks, and stunning photos—subscribe now to make sure you get your copy).

For the media tour, Steph and Danny got to sample quite a few things, but the baby bites of each item were mere teasers to the full experience they’ll get next month.

We hope you’re not hungry before you start scrolling through all these tantalizing Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser food photos. They may look out of this world (because they are), but they are actually quite tasty:

Though Steph and Danny didn’t get to sit and enjoy the full drinks (media events are tough work!), they did get to sip on two tasty cocktails.

Galactic Starcruiser Food Review

Danny Shuster is our resident WDW Magazine food columnist. Here’s what he had to say about his overall impressions of the dining aboard Galactic Starcruiser:

The Galactic Starcruiser food is waaay better than the food at Batuu. Disney Imagineers struck a great balance of delicious but delightfully weird-looking food. But it’s not just weird for weird’s sake; it tells a story. Disney also designed the plates and glasses for specific dishes.

Danny also discovered that, in true cruise ship fashion there will be lots of food available.

A chef we spoke to said there are around 50 individual dishes created for Halcyon. There’s so much to sample!

There are two separate dinner menus for Galactic Starcruiser. The first night is Dinner with Gaya, followed up by Taste Around the Galaxy. There’s also a kids’ menu—er, younglings’ rather.

An Evening with Gaya includes live music from Gaya herself! We heard three songs, and they were so good and really sold the atmosphere.

Thanks to Disney for hosting us on a Media Preview of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser where we got to tour the ship, try some of the onboard experiences, hear from Cast Members working to bring the project to life, plus had the chance to stay at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. #GalacticStarcruiser

Boom baby! Timothy Moore is excited to serve as a WDW Magazine contributor and resident Disney Renaissance expert. When he's not drinking around the world at EPCOT or gobbling down Mickey Waffles for breakfast, he can usually be found with his partner hiking and kayaking the great outdoors, putting off writing his novel by playing Nintendo Switch, or telling his dogs Goomba and Blooper that they're the best boys in the world ad nauseam (because they are).
