Did you end up sharing here what you thought about the Starcruiser? I’m curious.
We’re heading there in October and I’ve been torn about the Starcruiser or the VIP tour or none of the above. I’D love the Starcruiser, but I don’t know if my family will participate enough to make it worthwhile.
(My daughter made that particular Storm Trooper miserable every chance she got!)
There’s even an “environment simulator room” for those who might want to experience the outdoors while on board the Starcruiser:
I have to say, this is really incredible. I’m not a sci-fi person at all, but enough of my family around me are and they would love this place. Looks like they did an amazing job of creating what it would be like to actually board a ship into outer space. Got a kick out of your third photo…in the shuttle. The woman in the middle looks positively enthralled about it all. Ha ha!
So yes. We had a ball. Imagine a 2-day murder mystery/escape room, set on a starship. In the Star Wars universe. Westworld in space, without all the killing and dying.
As Star Wars fans, it was more than worth it to us. We showed up in costume and played our parts to the hilt. It’s fun, it’s engaging, it’s even hectic at times. The “cast members” were wonderful, the food amazing, the bunks (yes, of COURSE we slept in the bunks!) are cozy and comfortable. Both of us would’ve liked to to go on longer. When we boarded the shuttle back, we were back in our flight suits.
And to ease the shock of returning to reality, that evening we headed over to Galaxy’s Edge, had a Ronto Wrap at Docking Bay 7, then went over to Oga’s cantina for drinks.
Was it worth the price of a Glowforge for two of us to spend two days/nights living in the Star Wars universe?
I’d have to say yes. Definitely. I’d go again tomorrow if I could find someone to watch Gozer.
But if you don’t think your family will get involved? Not big Star Wars fans? That’s a harder call.
But I am. And I want to go back. We did EVERYTHING that we could to stay in the action, and we still only got about 30% of the story. They go out of their way to keep the kids entertained and involved, EVERYONE on the ship knows your name after they’ve met you… Immersive… Engaging… And the attention to detail…
For example… in the Halcyon’s backstory, Han Solo took Leia on a cruise for their honeymoon. On board the Halcyon. On one of the pipes near the carbon freeze unit in engineering, my daughter found this:
That level of detail is what makes Disney attractions so amazing. I remember my first time in Disneyland and there were these jokes written into the tombstones of the Haunted Mansion and I thought how cool it was that there’s these little gags here and there. Thanks for sharing.
Your new friend is going to absolutely love those gifts! And thank you so much for sharing all the photos! I am amazed, and now realize I could never make it in space - too claustrophobic! But it really looks like a tremendous amount of fun. So glad you got to go, and glad you shared it with us. Were other guests amazed by your outfits?
