The Galactic Starcruiser looks like a Sam's Club, but with a more coffin-like porte cochere, and buttresses in place of pillars.

I'm sure all the diehard fans of the wonderful new Star Wars trilogy can't wait to go spend time with Rey, Finn, Poe, and all the Porgs!

I mean, I'd stay in a hotel infested by porgs. That sounds pretty great.

I'd probably pay good money to stay in a Galaxy-class hotel resort but also feel incredibly awkward the whole time in a starship that's basically a hotel.

If we're going the Star Wars route, how seedy and drug-infested are they willing to go?  Can I take those Twi'leks back to my room?

Don't know about Twi'leks but you can get hassled by law enforcement as they let a Wookie casually steal cargo.

thornhill: Photos of what looks like a warehouse. SO EXCITING!!!!


they're going to plant a row of trees to hide the building.  I really don't get the appeal of a building with no windows.

They are saying it's going to cost $6,000 for a 2 night, 3 day stay for a family of four.  Who has that kind of money?  I've had a season pass to disney for the last 20 years and there is no way in hell I would pay for that, even though it does look cool to visit.

I'd be more into the whole idea if it were based on the classic trilogy.  Maybe that is my age showing.  But the price for stay is so far out of my reach it doesn't really matter anyway.

From what it says you will have 'windows' showing the star systems you are cruising by.

No windows because it's going to have screens, showing the galactic tour, instead. The whole thing is supposed to be immersive.

It is a great experience and I would love to partake but that cost is comparable to like a super veranda suite on a cruise line with food and lots of amenities included.  It just isn't worth the cost to me yet.

How much for 1... Or a couple.

I find hospitality tends to fark over the individual in favor of couples, and families get an even better per person deal.

It's like the Apple and Tesla business model - focus on the market of upper-middle class people. It may be a small market of people, but you can sell products to them at a very big profit margin.

The person I'm responding to says it's 6k for a family of 4 for 2 nights 3 days. I'm asking what all comes with that 6k.  If it's just a room, that's crazy.

It does seem high.  I'd hope it includes at least food and non-alcoholic drinks.  Assuming it includes access to the entire 'experience' / ride.

I'd imagine park access is included since it's part of the whole Star Wars experience.  You basically take a "shuttle" from your hotel/ship to the park.

I would think meals are also probably included.

I just did a quick search of individual park ticket prices.  A conservative estimate would put tickets alone at just shy of $2000.  Those are 3 single day park-hopper passes for 4 people.  Chances are, the price of those would actually be lower depending on the time of year and any discounts for buying multiple day passes.  And that's also assuming these would be park-hopper passes.  Single park tickets would be much cheaper.

So that leaves $4000 for the resort itself.  We don't know what's included with that outside of possible meals and maybe some merchandise credit.  But that still seems pretty outrageous.

As underwhelming as the new trilogy was, Porgs were one of the best parts.  I will fight you on this.  Well, not really.  A single post is probably all I can muster on this.  I have spoken.

If they were accurate with the interior volume for hotel rooms vs engine room, shuttle bay, and other spaces, the Constitution would be pretty cramped.  There's almost no personal volume in the engineering section.

The Galaxy-class has a crazy amount of internal volume that are non-specific.

6k for a family of 4 is a pretty bonkers, and well out of what I'd be willing to pay. That being said, I do have 3 other people that would go with me, so depending on what is included with that 6k, may not be too bad. Still a little steep, but if it comes with meals and park tickets, possibly.

Includes admission and 24 hours a day immersive experience.
As soon as they open up reservations it will be full forever.

I don't doubt it will be popular, at least initially. But I wouldn't be as confident as you seem.

How much of that 24 hr immersive experience (whatever that means) are you getting if you're spending days in the parks?

It seems it's targeting 2 niche audiences at once. Those whose want that truly immersive experience and those that can afford $6k for 2.5 days. I'm wondering what the crossover is there.

You aren't "spending days in the parks." You're visiting their other Star Wars themed attractions (probably with special access) as "planet excursions" and otherwise probably just doing the activities in the hotel. The excursions are part of the experience, not competing with it.

(Anyone who drops 6K on a couple days of Star Wars is not going to have a problem doing the rest of the normal park visit in the days before or after, and I'd expect them to offer some kind of combo package with the other Disney hotels.)

Basically they get people to pay thousands to stay a couple of nights in a windowless warehouse in central Florida with a bunch of roleplayers pretending they're somewhere much cooler. Neat trick if it works. Could see the concept being applied to all sorts of things other than SW.

Basically it's a Star Wars "Westworld", without the do-able robots.
