Day 1: Climb Aboard and Jump Right into the Action

Your first day aboard the Galactic Starcruiser starts off with getting settled in, but it won’t take long for things to get interesting.

In Disney’s sample itinerary, you’ll arrive at the terminal around 1 PM and board the pod for a ride to the Galactic Starcruiser proper. You can board up to 4 PM, but the earlier you get there, the more time you have to explore.

Once you’re onboard the starcruiser, you’ll have 30-minute Ship Orientation, no doubt familiarizing you with the environment and all the shiny buttons you shouldn’t touch.

Other veritable locks on your day one schedule might include 30 minutes for refreshments, a Captain’s Reception, dinner with live music, the Outer Rim Regalia, and special entertainment in the atrium.

There will also be time on the first day for Bridge Training. This allows you to explore the fully functioning bridge of the Halcyon and learn from her crew how the ship works.

And look alive—at 7:30 PM, you might encounter an unexpected story moment that challenges your skills and tests where you fit on the spectrum between the light and dark side of the Force.

Day 2: Explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

On your second day, you’ll head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a day out at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

After breakfast, you’ll jump on a shuttle bound for Batuu and spend around 3 hours at Galaxy’s Edge. There, you can ride Rise of the Resistance and Smugglers Run and grab lunch at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo.

When you make it back to the Galactic Starcruiser just before 1 PM, you’ll have the rest of the day ahead of you to enjoy its unique experiences. Some things you can expect to get in on: droid racing, lightsaber training, model ship building, and a sabacc tournament.

As you wind down the evening, you can grab cocktails at the Sublight Lounge before Taste Around the Galaxy, a dining experience inspired by the many planets of Star Wars.

And before you bed down, you’ll run into a story moment and cap off the evening with a spectacular finale.

Day 3: Saying Goodbye … for Now

The final day aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is mostly just getting ready to head back to your home planet. You can grab breakfast from 8:30 to 9:30 AM before taking the launch pod back to the terminal.
