Galactic Star Cruiser to Close Permanently

Published: May 22, 2023

Disney has released news that currently, bookings on the Galactic Starcruiser Experience Hotel has currently suspended hotel reservations and that one of the newest experiences in the Disney World Resort in Florida will close on October 1, 2023.

The final voyage for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will take place Sept. 28-30, 2023.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of our most creative projects ever and has been praised by our Guests and recognized for setting a new bar for innovation and immersive entertainment. This premium experience gave us the opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale of 100 rooms, and we will take what we’ve learned to create future experiences that can reach more of our Guests and fans.

We will be contacting Guests booked for voyages departing on or after Sept. 30 to discuss their options and modify their plans. To prioritize these Guests, we are pausing new bookings until May 26.

We are so proud of all of the Cast Members and Imagineers who brought Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to life and look forward to delivering an excellent experience for Guests during the remaining voyages over the coming months.

Disney World statement

There is no official reason given for the closure, but dwindling sales of the pricey two day adventure are most likely the reason.

There are currently no official word on if there are plans to repurpose the current 100 room hotel into a DVC or some other experience.
