With all the hype that has come from the media preview of the Galactic Starcruiser, I wanted to ask my fellow Star Wars fans from around the world what they thought of what’s been revealed. Here are their responses and posts from the first week of visitors to this experience.
Ryan Stämpfl from Australia
The Galactic Starcruiser experience looks incredible and I’m thrilled for friends who have been able to take part in the recent tour – I just wish it was affordable for more people and more flexible
For the same cost you could stay for longer at a Disney resort and enjoy visiting multiple parks and have a more family friendly vacation that would cater to more varied interests, it’s a big ask to go stay on the Galactic StarcruiserSpend the whole time with a loved one you might not be able see. Star Wars fan/as many people as one.

It looks like a great place to stay. StarcruiserIt is possible, but the price should be higher than other Disney cruises. The price is prohibitive, and only the wealthy will be eligible to experience it. I’ll also add I’m a little disappointed that some of the amazing experiences originally planned for SWGE were held back and only delivered for the hotel.

The Starcruiser offers theatrical immersion at its highest level. The ship feels elegant and fresh thanks to the amazing cast. Don’t believe the noise. This is amazing. #GalacticStarcruiser pic.twitter.com/6Su3TBb2Te

As a lifelong admirer Star WarsSince 1977, the combination Batuu at Disney Hollywood Studios with The Galactic StarcruiserThese cruises can be the fulfillment of childhood fantasies. The cruise price is a step back. It is too expensive for a 2-day trip. This coupled with the absence of any generic hotel amenities (pool/spa or free-flowing self-guided experiences) has me putting it off the agenda. If I win the lottery, or if there’s an open house coupon day, I might try it. It is my plan to live it with friends who were invited.

Personally, I knew before I saw the videos released that I wouldn’t be remotely interested in going on this overpriced two-day ‘experience’. It makes Jason from Star Command feel more Jason than ever. Star Wars. It seems to be targeted at 7-10-year olds. They generally don’t have $6,000 to burn and – despite what Disney believes – that age group is not the core Star Wars fanbase. The majority of fans are between 20-30 years old. A more grown up themed adventure would be appropriate – enlisted into Empire or Rebellion, developing into an immersive paint ball/laser tag affair. The accommodation looks okay, but it shouldn’t be the focus – nothing thrilling from what I’ve seen. All appeared to be very pedestrian.

Why did they put the three-quarter and three quarter Astromech robots on sale in Starcruiser? Why are they making my life so difficult? That’s my collecting life.

I’ve seen some of the visitor’s videos and I’ve read some early reviews. I really like their efforts to create an immersive environment, but I don’t think it’s for me. These are my thoughts.
It’s very similar to a sea cruise environment with cramped rooms, lots of people and constant movement. As an introvert, I really don’t like to be among many people I do not know for an extended period of time. (That’s why I would never like to go on a cruise!)
Interactive and immersive are the best ways to get the most from the two-day stay. You must be there every single day. I can’t be ‘on’Every day. The pressure of only having two days to experience everything doesn’t allow for much downtime without feeling you wasted your money.
While the overall environment was well-designed, some characters were just average cosplayers. The blue-skinned officer wearing a white uniform and Chewbacca in his large hat looked unconvincing.
The lightsaber fight between Rey and Kylo on that balcony stage felt a bit like what you’d see in line waiting for one of the rides in an amusement park. I understand that it’s the only way to integrate elements like that, but it would require an effort to suspend disbelief in situations like that. It’s great for children.
It seems like there is a lot more emphasis on eating than on partying as forms of entertainment. It all felt the exact same. ‘too much’.
This experience is also very expensive. For the price if two days, you can fly your whole family from the US into Paris and Rome for a week. Galactic Starcruiser. It is possible that some people are willing and capable to pay this much money, but not me. Star WarsInstead, you could go with your friends to festivals and conventions. If they’d offer a 2 hour version of this, I might be willing to consider it, but two days? It’s not for me. I can think of many other things I could do with the money they charge. Galactic Starcruiser experience.. According to market research, only a few people will pay these prices and receive enough return on their investment. They clearly don’t see this as something that any family should be able to experience.

It is comparable to a Disney cruise, but it is much more expensive and offers less fun. Plus, you get one day free. “on Batuu” so you’re not even on/in the “ship”. Other guests were also invited to make the experience more immersive. “normal clothes”So you can get out Star Warsyness. But above all it’s out of the price reach of most fans so they’ll never get to go.

I believe the Galactic Starcruiser looks fun overall. I support Disney’s pursuit of building new experiences for Star Wars fans and charging whatever they think fans are willing to pay. Will I pay to be a part of their exclusive hotel? Star Wars hotel? No. As a writer—even a writer of official Star Wars content—I couldn’t begin to afford a weekend at that price. It’s too much. It’s too much. I could easily travel around the globe for the same amount and enjoy a long vacation. I don’t like the same-old, cookie-cutter activities that everyone else is choosing from when I pick among more expensive experiences. I want an experience that is personal and unique. I would love to spend two nights in a peaceful setting like the Galactic Starcruiser isn’t worth the relative expense to me.
The fascination of the Galactic Starcruiser. This sounds like an amazing adventure for Star Wars fanatics. However, the large sum of money could have been used to fund a more extended and extensive vacation.

The rooms were too small and not very real-world. For the cost price I’d expect a lot more for my money, so pass. Let the rich be prosperous ‘n’Celebrities who have a lot can afford to live comfortably for as long as their lives.
Mike Hammond (USA).
The Galactic StarcruiserThis seems like something we would enjoy but not at such an expensive price. We, like many Star Wars fan, can’t afford $5,000 just to have a 2-day experience. I believe that there won’t be many normal experiences until the price is a bit lower. Star WarRegister for this experience if your a s fan or superfan, like my wife Patty.
All these reactions have led me to believe that many of my friends won’t be making a reservation for the Galactic Starcruiser anytime soon, until the cost and timing are more balanced.
