If you’re like me, you’ve been wanting to take a hyperspace jump to 2022 since about March 2020. But Disney World just gave another reason to look forward to next year. Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, the much anticipated Star Wars hotel at Walt Disney World, will open its doors to guests in 2022. Disney just announced new details about this unique experience that Star Wars fans will love.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will be a new type of hotel at Walt Disney World. Instead of having rooms and areas decorated like a franchise (think the Cars wing of The Art of Animation Resort), SW: GS is an immersive experience. It’s much more akin to a cruise ship on land, except on this 2-night journey, you will be shuttled to the Halcyon starcruiser via a Launch Pod.

Here’s what Disney Parks Blog has to say about what you can expect on your Star Wars adventure on the Halcyon:

When the Launch Pod’s airlock slides open, you’ll take your first step into a galaxy far, far away as Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser comes to life all around you. During your stay aboard this glamorous ship, you may interact with an eclectic group of characters both familiar and new, possibly including the starcruiser’s strong and charismatic captain, a plucky ship’s mechanic and a galactic superstar who can captivate an entire room with the crook of one jewel-encrusted purple Twi’lek finger.

This singing sensation will be a featured performer during one of your exquisite dining experiences inside the Crown of Corellia Dining Room, which you can see in this artist concept rendering we’re sharing today for the first time. The enticing supper club’s name is an homage to Corellia, the planet known galaxy-wide for its shipyards that gave us not only the Halcyon starcruiser, but also the Millennium Falcon. The dining room is a bright and welcoming hall that will offer breakfast and lunch to passengers before transitioning each evening into a lavish multi-course menu of both otherworldly and familiar origins.

As your journey continues, you’ll have the opportunity to train in the ancient ways of the lightsaber, learn more about the inner workings of the Halcyon starcruiser and even jump on a transport to the planet Batuu to further your adventure inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This isn’t storytelling – it’s storyliving, where you’ll see, feel and live Star Wars in a whole new way.

There’s so much more to explore on the Halcyon, including seeing a real lightsaber.
