How Much Does the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Hotel Cost?

Ever since Disney announced the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel, the biggest question on people’s minds is: “How much does it cost?” Now we have an answer to that question since Disney has revealed the pricing for the experience, and it isn’t cheap!

On Disney’s Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser website they have listed all the prices and the full itinerary and everything included in the experience.

Let’s just start out by saying, the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of, if not the most expensive experience Disney has ever created. We knew all along this was going to be expensive, but when broken down on a price per guest basis, it’s the most expensive hotel at Walt Disney World, and it isn’t close.

In this post, we are going to share all the prices with you for the Star Wars hotel, including the 3 different room types, the meals, and other experiences that are included in the final cost.

(UPDATE) Current Discounts for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Hotel

Guest Cabin in Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

After almost a year of operation and with guest demand slowing, Disney has started offering the first discounts for the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World, which now includes the general public.

In reality, Disney has released 2 types of discounts, one for the general public, and another for Disney Vacation Club Members. Let’s break each of these down for you…

1. General Public – Save $700 on WDW Resort Stays

This is Disney’s first discount given to the general public, even if they are not dropping the prices of the actual rooms on a Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser voyage. Instead, they are offering a deep discount on a vacation that includes a stay at one of the Disney World Resort Hotels right before or after this experience.

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa over Seven Seas Lagoon

This makes sense, because if you are coming all the way to Walt Disney World to stay on the Galactic Starcruiser, you may as well spend a couple of days in the theme parks during the same trip.

Right now, guests can save $700 on a two-night Disney World Resort hotel stay, immediately before or after a stay on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. This offer is good for most voyages between February 5 and September 30, 2023.

The participating Disney World Resorts and prices are as follows:

  • Save $350 per night – at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
  • Save $250 per night – at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, or Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
  • Save $150 per night – at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

You probably noticed that all of the resorts that this offer is good for are Disney Deluxe Resorts, as well as Disney’s Coronado Springs which is the only Disney Moderate Resort to make the list. There are no Disney Value Resorts listed, but if you are planning on staying at one of the nicer resorts anyway, you will find some nice savings.

Disney's Wilderness Lodge Lobby

For example, a standard room at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge anywhere from July 3 to August 17, 2023, costs $488 per night normally. However, with a $250 per night discount, that comes all the way down to just $238 per night. So essentially you get 2 nights at the Wilderness Lodge for just over $500. That is a steal and one of the best discounts you will ever see at Disney World.

Now, of course, the Galactic Starcruiser will still cost you $5,000+, and you shouldn’t book it just for the discount, but if you are already planning on going in 2023 and wanted to stay a couple of nights to go to the parks, it’s a fantastic offer.

2. Disney Vacation Club Discount for Galactic Starcruiser

This second offer is brand new and it’s good on the voyage from August 19-21, 2023. This offer makes Disney Vacation Club members eligible for a 30% discount at the Star Wars Hotel, but again, it’s only for DVC Members.

Sublight Lounge Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

Here is the breakdown of the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser discounted prices:

“DVC members save 30% on member-exclusive voyage Aug. 19-21, 2023. Registration begins on March 21, 2023, at 11 AM Eastern Daylight Time. Terms Apply*.

This offer applies to the following departure in the Summer of 2023:

August 19 – 21, 2023

To Register:

This is pretty significant news and it makes sense that Disney is offering discounts to DVC members. They started doing this for Winter 2023 voyages, and DVC members have been the top beneficiaries of the discounts. It’s obvious that despite good reviews from guests, this is a very exclusive experience and not doable for the majority of guests.

It was easy for Disney to sell out the first wave of voyages and it’s also understandable that demand for this has now started shrinking which means Disney needs to do more to entice guests to come.

Lobby in Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

We think both of these discounts are a sign of things to come and it wouldn’t be surprising to see more discounts offered to all guests in the coming months. The voyage we took was incredible and we loved every second of it, and the same goes for most people I’ve spoken to that have had a chance to go.

The only issue is the price, and with a slowing economy and consumers getting more thrifty, it was going to be almost impossible for Disney to keep up the original pace of sales, and things were bound to slow down. How many more discounts we see in the near future remains to be seen.

Room Prices

Standard Guest Room Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Resort

Prices for your stay on the Galactic Starcruiser vary depending on group size, cabin type, and the dates you choose to visit.

Just to get the big number you are waiting for out of the way, a 2-night, 2-day stay on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser starts at $4,809 for a 2-guest room.

Yes, you heard me right. Almost $5,000 for a 2-night stay in the Star Wars Hotel. I told you it wasn’t cheap!

Prices are broken down into a per guest, per night basis and set up very similar to cruise pricing. The smaller your group, the more you pay per person. If you have more people in your party, you will end up paying less per person.

We were able to stay on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser on opening day and the total cost for 2 people was $5,415.79. That comes out to $2,707.89 each for 2 nights or $1,353.94 each, per night.

On top of that, there are 3 room types: Standard Cabin, Galaxy Class Suite, and a Grand Captain Suite. The bigger the room, the more expensive it is.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Standard Cabin Concept art

Here is the pricing for a standard cabin in Late August-September 2023:

2 Guests Per Cabin:

  • $1,209 per guest, per night
  • $4,809 voyage total

3 Guests Per Cabin (2 Adults, 1 Child):

  • $889 per guest, per night
  • $5,299 voyage total

4 Guests Per Cabin (3 Adults, 1 Child):

  • $749 per guest, per night
  • $5,999 voyage total
Prices for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser reservations

Now, it’s important to keep in mind, that these are for Late-August and September, traditionally one of the cheapest times of the year to go to Disney World. Considering that Deluxe Resorts can increase the price per night to 50-60% from the value season to the holidays, it’s possible these prices will be exponentially higher during the busy seasons.

At that point, we are likely talking about $6,000-$7,000 per night for a 2 Guest Cabin and $10,000 for a 4 Guest Cabin, not to mention the more expensive room types.

What’s Included in the Price?

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Lobby Concept Art

Similar to cruise pricing, more than just your room is included in the price. Meals and entertainment are all part of the experience and they are included in the cost.

  • 2-night stay in a cabin or suite
  • Ongoing, immersive, and interactive entertainment, where choices determine your experience
  • Food and beverages on the starcruiser (excluding alcoholic and specialty beverages) and a quick-service meal at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo or other select locations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
  • Admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for your planetary excursion to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for one day, on day two
  • Valet parking
  • Exclusive Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser databand (known on your home planet as a MagicBand)

Of course, not everything is included in the base price. You will have to pay extra for alcoholic and specialty beverages for example.

Cloud of Bespin Cocktail Sublight Lounge

There are also unique merchandise and shopping opportunities, because, well, it’s Disney. In fact, The Chandrila Collection is full of cool stuff to bring home from your voyage including ornaments, coasters, wine glasses, lightsabers, Star Wars outfits, a model of the Halcyon ship, and more.

There is also a small shop outside the entrance to the resort as you are leaving with more classic Star Wars-themed merchandise like t-shirts, MagicBands, etc.

There are also additional entertainment or exclusive experiences you can add on to your stay like building a lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop or building a droid at the Droid Depot. There is a custom photo service you can hire that will take photos of you and your group in various locations around the Starcruiser.

Dining Prices

All of your meals are included in the price of your room and there are 2 breakfasts, 1 lunch, and 2 dinners during your stay. Let’s look at what’s included:


Breakfast Night 2 Galactic Starcruiser

Both of these take place on the Galactic Starcruiser in the glamorous Crown of Corellia Dining Room. The first is on day 2, and the second breakfast is on day 3, right before departure. Guests have a 3-hour window of time to eat breakfast each morning.

Breakfast includes hot and cold small plates and a variety of beverages including juices, fresh-brewed coffee, and Bubo Wamba Family Farms blue milk. In fact, you can get unlimited free blue milk at both breakfast and lunch instead of paying for it in Galaxy’s Edge!


Lunch Night 2 Galactic Starcruiser

There are 2 lunches during your stay on the Galactic Starcruiser. The first is on Day 1 immediately when you arrive, and the other is on Day 2. On Day 1 lunch is a buffet on the ship, meanwhile, on Day 2 you have a choice whether or not to eat another buffet on the ship or during your trip down to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios.

Each guest is given a lunch credit to any quick service restaurant in Hollywood Studios if they choose to eat off-ship. If you do make that choice, we recommend eating at Docking Bay 7: Food and Cargo.

This is a quick service restaurant in Batuu, and it will keep you fully immersed in the Star Wars story you are living. Not only that, the food is amazing and it’s one of our favorite quick service restaurants in Disney World hands-down.

Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo Hollywood Studios

Guests can take as much time as they want to eat and enjoy the unique theming of the restaurant. This all happens after you get to ride both Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

One entree and side, plus beverage will be included in the price. You will use your Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser databand (MagicBand) to redeem your meal as you do if you were using the Disney Dining Plan.

Galactic Starcruiser Dinner Tray


Lastly, and best of all are the dinners. This was one of the highlights of our entire Star Wars hotel experience. Included in the price of the stay are 2 dinners.

On the first night of your stay, dinner is in the Crown of Corellia Dining Room which transforms for dinner into an enticing table-service supper club with a special musical appearance by a galactic superstar, Gaia. She ends up playing an even bigger part in the story than you originally think.

Dinner Night 1 Galactic Starcruiser

This is a unique dining and entertainment experience and you can also socialize with passengers and crew. The music is awesome and it is a super-fun environment to have a meal.

The second night, The Taste Around the Galaxy showcases courses inspired by the geography and environments of iconic destination planets throughout the galaxy. With the serving of each course, a brief introduction presents the name, inspiration, and ingredients for the dishes.

The meal includes group appetizers for the table, a choice of entrée, and a specialty plated dessert.

Dinner Night 2 Galactic Starcruiser

There are two seatings for dinner each night and when you book your hotel stay you can request your seating preference.

Captain’s Table

Galactic Starcruiser Captain's Table Experience

There is also an upgraded dinner at the Captain’s Table which comes at an additional cost of $30 per person in 2022 and it increases to $50 per person in 2023. Think of this as a Chef’s Table dining experience you find in other Disney restaurants.

Guests sit at the captain’s table in a prime location in the center of the Crown of Corellia Dining Room. Guest are served extra courses that you don’t get with the regular dining experience.

Is the Galactic Starcruiser Worth the High Price?

Entertainment on the Galactic Starcruiser

A family of 4 is going to spend a minimum of $6,000 on the hotel alone, not to mention travel expenses to get to Orlando, plus any additional days spent at Walt Disney World. In that case, you are easily talking about a $10,000 vacation or more.

As you can see, the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most guests and it’s very expensive. In fact, the cost of the Galactic Starcruiser is more than what about 95% of Americans spend on vacation in a year.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of visitors to Walt Disney World will probably not be able to afford or justify paying such high prices for a 2-day experience.

On the other hand, the Galactic Starcruiser is small, and with only 100 guest cabins, so far Disney has had enough people that are excited about this experience and they haven’t had difficulty filling up the rooms.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Concept Art

Is the Star Wars hotel worth the price? That depends on many factors.

Is it worth taking out a second mortgage on your home just to go? No, it’s not so don’t do that under any circumstances. Like any high-end luxury item, the actual cost is usually not worth the huge difference in price between it and the next model down.

However, after our stay on the Galactic Starcruiser, we are convinced it is absolutely worth it for the right kind of guests.

If you are looking for a relaxing, low-key vacation, look somewhere else. If you are not willing to participate fully in the story, or are not a big Star Wars fan, you will likely think it is a waste of money.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Atrium concept art

What about comparing it to other vacations for the same, or even less money?

Just to make a comparison, during the same time of the year (August/September) you can get a room at the Polynesian Village Resort for approximately $650 per night. That means you could stay there for 9 nights and still have some money left over.

It would be around 4-5 nights when you throw in the value of meals and park tickets, but the point is you can get a longer vacation for the same money if you go elsewhere.

Lightspeed Compass Galactic Starcruiser

However, if you are a huge Star Wars fan and you love the idea of interacting with the characters and are willing to play along and be an active participant in the missions, it will probably be one of the best-themed entertainment experiences you will have in your life.

I’m not kidding, it’s truly incredible what Disney Imagineers were able to create here, they just raised the bar big-time.

So far, guests have been mostly positive about the experience, and it will be interesting to see what they say a year or more from now and if the momentum will continue for this one-of-a-kind resort experience.

Read our post “Is the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Worth It?” for a more detailed breakdown of why or why not it would be worth it for you, as well as other vacation options to compare it to.

I feel that this whole experience that Disney has created is OMG AMAZING. But unfair in the same reason being is lets face it most of the people that visit Disneyland have to save for a very long time just to get admission to a general park. Now you have Galaxy's edge an amazing experience. Star Wars is loved by billions of people all over the world and most just get to see a movie and live the fantasies on screen without even being able to afford a park ticket. Now there is the hotel experience an adventure only very rich upper-class people can afford. lets face it 90% of Disney's fans are lower to middle class and will never afford to go to this hotel you have created. Its like dangling the carrot Infront of the horse or teasing the fans of star wars and saying look whet we made and you cant go cause your not rich. It sucks for the general fan base that will never ever get to do this hotel experience and most of the fan base don't have that kind of money and never will. Why not make this beautiful star wars fantasy an experience that all people can afford, Make that dream come true for all of us and lets share the star wars experience and live out this dream in an affordable manner for all. Really 10,000 for 2 nights? I barely made that last year. My opinion its not fair to charge so much to let people experience a dream of a lifetime. I'm sure this falls on deaf ears but I wanted to share my thoughts. I'm a lifetime lover of the Disney experience and have been blessed with several opportunities to visit Disneyland and Galaxy's Edge. I wish for all to experience. I quote Walt Disney himself, Did he not say Disneyland is dedicated to the Ideals and DREANS and the hard facts that have created America with the HOPE that it will be a source of JOY and INSPIRATION for all the world. Well in my eyes there is never going to be any hope or inspiration with prices sooooooo high. Great for Disney for making this sad for millions who will never know the joy or inspiration of this creation you have made

Unfortunately the days of an affordable family vacation at WDW are over. Spending 6- to 15 thousand for a 5 day vacation is insane! Only millionaires can afford the vacation club, and all the expensive hotels. It is time for WDW to reconsider all of this.

Michael Nelson

Saturday 16th of April 2022

Unfortunately Disney is no longer a family destination with affordable prices. Unless you are a millionaire you will not be able to shell out 8-to 15 thousand for 5 days of magic. My question is the average family simply cannot afford WDW anymore and how can they with the prices of hotel,tickets Disney Genie food etc not to mention airfare. We used to go twice a year, and now our family will vacation elsewhere.
