Disney's Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser vacations are to begin in 2021 at Walt Disney World Resort, the company announced in December, as it released new images of the immersive experience.

The two-night, cruise-style itinerary sees guests arrive initially at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal (see main picture), from where they board an exclusive "launch pod" that takes them to their hotel, also known as the Halcyon starcruiser, in "a galaxy far, far away". Looking through the pod's viewports gives the impression of travelling through space to reach the starcruiser.

As Attractions Management reported in August 2019,during the experience visitors will be offered the chance to take part in a number of activities, including lightsaber training and learning how to operate starcruiser systems.

Guests can also pick up special passenger transports to Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu (otherwise known as Disney's Hollywood Studios) – destination for the 14-acre Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge experience. These transport ships (see image below) have been specially designed to keep guests "in-story".
