Disney Announces Absurd Galactic Starcruiser Prices

Talk about taking the wind out of my sails. I’d been hoping to one day book a “cabin” at this fully-immersive Star Wars themed hotel. SFGate (and so many others) confirming Disney spares no expense (and charges accordingly) for the House of Mouse.

The idea is that you’re staying on a luxury space cruise, so immersive that the hotel’s windows look out into “space” and you never leave the property unless it’s to “board a transport” to Batuu, the land where Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge takes place. Admission to Hollywood Studios is included in the price, as is all of your food and non-alcoholic beverages.

But really, for $4,809 for two nights’ accommodations for two guests in a studio, they could throw in a space beer or two.


Basically five grand for you and your SO to eat, breathe, and live Star Wars for 72-hours. It’s $5,300 if you have a child with you. Look, I love Star Wars as much as the next person but unless Disney makes some major pricing adjustments, I can’t foresee many people blowing this amount of money on a two-night experience. You can fly to nearly anywhere in the world WITH food & lodging for a longer period of time at that price tag.
