Each year on May the 4th, Star Wars fans around the world celebrate and honor their favorite stories and characters from a galaxy far, far away. Whether they’re sharing favorite Star Wars moments and memories on social media, hosting screening parties with their friends and family, or planning the next trip that allows them to live their own Star Wars adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, our Disney Parks Blog readers always love joining in on the fun. Today, in honor of Star Wars Day, let’s take a look at some of the exciting announcements that were just shared and some of the incredible Star Wars experiences coming to Disney Parks, Experiences and Products.
Walt Disney World Resort – Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser:
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will fully immerse guests in a galaxy far, far away when it debuts in 2022 at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, going beyond anything Disney has ever created before. As part of this first-of-its-kind vacation experience, guests become the heroes of their own stories during a two-day, two-night adventure where they see, feel and live Star Wars. During their Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser experience, guests will be the first to see characters like Rey wield a brand-new, more realistic lightsaber developed by Walt Disney Imagineering to create dramatic moments previously only possible through digital special effects. Also, for a limited time, guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios can see a model of the Halcyon starcruiser on display inside Walt Disney Presents.
Disney Cruise Line – Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge and Star Wars Day at Sea:
Just shared last week during Once Upon a Disney Wish, the grand reveal of the newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet, guests of the Disney Wish will embark on a space-jumping tour of the Star Wars galaxy at Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge, a high-end bar styled as a luxurious yacht-class spaceship. This richly themed, immersive experience will be reserved for adults every evening, offering interactive tasting experiences and signature beverages inspired by destinations such as Batuu, Tatooine and Mustafar. This adds to a variety of Star Wars experiences available onboard Disney Cruise Line like Star Wars Day at Sea, returning to the Disney Fantasy in 2022. These sailings feature a full day of all things Star Wars with character meet & greets, movie screenings, an epic deck show and so much more.
