Staying in one of the Star Wars Hotel guest rooms can be an adventure all on its own. I mean it better be for the $5,000+ price tag it costs to stay there. But just what are the guest cabins like? Let’s take a look at the Galactic Starcruiser hotel rooms and find out!
In this post, we are going to give you a full tour of a guest cabin on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser including photos and video of the entire space and our thoughts after staying here. We’ll let you know the pros & cons of the rooms, if they are comfortable and if they can really fit 4-5 adult guests.
While it’s true you won’t be spending that much time in your hotel room with all the other exciting experiences onboard, it still is important to have a comfortable place to lay your head at the end of a long day of completing missions on the Halcyon.
Really, they are much more than that. The stateroom cabins keep you in character and fully immersed in the story during your galactic-inspired journey.
We’ll also break down the difference between the 3 types of rooms and what’s included with each, and also how they compare to regular Disney World Resort hotel rooms. While they definitely aren’t your standard hotel rooms, they are for sure one of the best-themed and “coolest” rooms you will find in Walt Disney World and we absolutely loved staying in them.

Table of Contents
There are 100 guest rooms at the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Resort and you will stay in one of them during your 2-night stay onboard.
There are 3 room types aboard the Galactic Starcruiser:
- Standard Cabins
- Galaxy Class Suites
- Grand Captain Suites
Here is a breakdown of each room:
These are the most basic cabins on the Galactic Starcruiser, and the most common. Each Cabin is fitted with themed furnishings and fixtures designed to ensure comfort yet immerse travelers into the Star Wars universe. They include a pullout table and a TV with entertainment from your home planet. Of course, there is also a window with a view out into space.
- Sleeps: 4 to 5 passengers
- Room Configuration: queen bed, 2 berths (bunk beds) for one adult each, and a wall pull-down bed for one adult (if sleeping 5)
- Mini refrigerator
- In-cabin safe
- Phone with voicemail messaging
- Interactive TV
- H2O Plus® spa, bath, and shower products
Galaxy Class Suite
One-bedroom Galaxy Class Suites are slightly bigger than a Standard Cabin and feature a living space complete with a couch and armchair. They have all the comforts of Standard Cabins plus a double vanity bathroom, bar area, 2 windows with views out into space, and a few extra Star Wars surprises.
- Sleeps: 4 passengers
- Room Configuration: queen bed and 2 wall pull-down beds for one adult each
- Mini refrigerator
- In-cabin safe
- Phone with voicemail messaging
- Interactive TV
- H2O Plus® spa, bath, and shower products
Grand Captain Suite
The Two-bedroom Grand Captain’s Suites are the biggest rooms on the Starcruiser and offer ample room for the whole family and feature a posh living space complete with an integrated seating area.
They have all the comforts of Standard Cabins plus the main suite with a double vanity bathroom, a second bathroom with a single vanity, a bar area, 3 windows with views out into space, and a few extra Star Wars surprises.
- Sleeps: 8 passengers
- Room Configuration: 2 queen beds, 2 berths (bunk beds) for one adult each, and 2 wall pull-down beds for one adult each
- Mini refrigerator
- In-cabin safe
- Phone with voicemail messaging
- Interactive TV
- H2O Plus® spa, bath, and shower products
The vast majority of cabins are standard rooms and they are also the most popular room type on the Galactic Starcruiser because of the size and it is the cheapest of the three types.
Just keep in mind that the size of all three rooms is not comparable to the other Walt Disney World Resort hotels but they are smaller and feel more like true cruise ship rooms than regular hotel rooms. This fits the narrative of getting people out of their rooms and into the overall experience, so come with those expectations.
There are a million reasons why we loved our stay at the Star Wars Hotel, but the price was definitely not one of them. The cost of your stay on the Galactic Starcruiser will vary depending on how many people are in your group, what cabin type you choose, and the dates of your visit.
A 2-night, 2-day stay on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser starts at $4,809 for a 2 guest room. And that’s in August/September, the cheapest time of the year to go to Disney World. That means most of the year you are looking at $5,000+ for two people and $6,000+ for 4 people.
The basic thing to know is that the cost is on a per guest, per night basis, and the more people you have in your group, the less it comes out to per person. Also, the two Suites cost more money than the Standard Cabins.
We definitely recommend reading our post on “How Much Does the Galactic Starcruiser Cost?” to get a more detailed breakdown of everything.
Galactic Starcruiser Rooms vs. Other Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Rooms
Before we give you the full tour of a Galactic Starcruiser cabin, you should understand there is a big difference between the rooms here and the rooms in a traditional Walt Disney World Resort hotel.
The guest cabins at the Star Wars Hotel are smaller than what you would find in other Disney World Resorts and less important during your journey. Sure, getting a good night’s sleep is always important, but there are so many activities and entertainment options on the Starcruiser, that the guest cabins really take a back seat.
On the contrary, at other Disney World Resorts, the hotel rooms are usually one of the top 2 or 3 reasons for staying at a particular resort and you want something more comfortable where you can relax in your downtime. Don’t worry, no downtime on the Starcruiser!
Another big area in which the two types of rooms differ is the price. On our Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser stay we paid a grand total of $5,415.79. That breaks down to $2,707.89 per night. That number includes a few drinks we ordered, but it was mostly the package for the room and experience.
Many Disney World vacations can cost that much or more, but here we are talking about a 2-day voyage, not a week or more.
If you look up other resorts for those dates (March 1st and 2nd), you could have stayed at the Grand Floridian Resort for $1,740 ($857 per night), Disney’s Beach Club Resort for $1,332 ($666 per night), or Disneys Polynesian Village Resort for $1,470 ($735 per night).
Obviously, you are getting a very different experience here, but the price needs to be taken into consideration.
How Big is a Standard Cabin on the Galactic Starcruiser?
A standard guest cabin on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is approximately 200 square feet. Ok, so just how big is that?
When we compare a hotel room at the Galactic Starcruiser to another 200 sq ft is really small. In fact, these are now the smallest hotel rooms at any Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.
To give you an idea, the Value Resorts like Disney’s All-Star Sports or Art of Animation are about 260 sq feet. A standard room at a Deluxe Resort on the other hand like Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is 440 sq ft. That’s more than twice as big as a standard cabin at the Star Wars Hotel.
Strangely enough, when we stayed on the Starcruiser there were 2 of us, and we had plenty of floor space and did not feel cramped walking around or have trouble finding a place for our bags. Due to the smaller square footage however, 5 people would get pretty cozy IMO.
It’s a good thing the Starcruiser keeps you busy, and quite honestly, we didn’t spend hardly any time in the room, just to sleep and get changed. Remember, it’s not like a regular resort where you might want to go back to the room and chill for a while. You will be out of the room way more than not so it shouldn’t be an issue.
If you find yourself in a group of 4 or more people, try to pack as lightly as possible so the bags aren’t taking up a ton of space in the room.
Do the Guest Rooms on the Star Wars Hotel Really Sleep 4 or 5 Adult Guests?
Even though they don’t look very big, they can actually sleep 4 or even 5 adults pretty comfortably. The main bed is Queen-sized so it can fit 2 adults. Yes, a King would be better, but unless you really like to sprawl out, you shouldn’t have an issue.
The Bunk Beds (or Berths as Disney likes to call them) also can hold one adult each. They are long enough and wide enough that I had no problem sleeping in them and I’m not a small guy. That brings the total to 4.
Some of the standard cabins also have a pulldown bed on the wall under the TV that fits another person. This isn’t as large as the bunk beds, so you’ll want to put the smallest adult of the group there.
Standard Cabin Room Tour
Ok, now that we got some of the basic info about the Star Wars Hotel cabins out of the way, what do they actually look like and what is it like to sleep about the Galactic Starcruiser? Let’s take a full tour of our Standard Guest Cabin that we stayed in during our voyage.
Each standard cabin has one Queen Bed, and two Bunk Beds, which fit 4 guests. Some have a pull-out bed under the TV for a 5th guest.
Before we can look at the room, we need to actually get there. Your trip starts in the Atrium when you arrive onboard, but when you are ready to go to your cabin, just take the elevator or the stairs to the floor your room is on.
Ours was on Deck 4 which is the bottom floor of the building. There are guest rooms on three floors, Deck 4, Deck 5, and Deck 7, and they are equally spread out on each level.
There is one long hallway on each floor where all the guest cabins are located.
This however, is not an ordinary hallway you find in any resort, and you immediately start to see the details that you are indeed on a spaceship.
The wall panels are much different, and the doors really stand out.
Outside each cabin door, there is a decorative panel with the room number on it, plus a keypad where you scan your MagicBand to enter the room. This certainly is the coolest way we’ve ever seen to enter a hotel room before!
You can easily see the MagicBand tap point here on the panel. When it is waiting to be opened, the light is blue.
Once you scan your MagicBand over it, the light turns red, giving you access to the cabin.
Another thing we liked about the doors were the heavy-duty handles, and the overall weight of the door. The handle twists down to one side to open it and the door then slides open, it doesn’t swing open like a normal hotel room door.
The door itself was very heavy and needed some elbow grease to open. Not cheap-feeling by any means.
Once you step inside the guest cabin, you find yourself in a small hallway.
There is a vanity with a mirror and closets on the left, the bathroom is on the right, and the bedroom is straight ahead.
Here is another view from the bedroom.
The vanity is one place you can put down some small things like your wallet or it’s also a place to charge your phone. There isn’t a coffee maker in the room, unfortunately, but there honestly isn’t space enough for one.
Right away you will notice the glass water bottle to the side, along with two metal drinking cups.
We appreciate the style, but weren’t fans of drinking from a metal cup. The glass water bottle on the other hand comes in very handy as you can bring it to the atrium where there is a water refill station. You can choose from sparkling or still water, either cold or ambient.
Also on the vanity was a Halcyon Legacy comic book. Take a few minutes and read up about the history of the Halcyon ship to get you in the mood for your upcoming adventure.
We’re going to skip by the bathroom for the moment and head into the bedroom straight ahead.
Once you walk into the main living area, you really feel the theming of the room and it feels “Star Wars.”
There is a Queen bed in the middle of the room, a TV on the left wall, and the window into space on the far side of the room. There are also 2 bunk beds around the corner to the right.
They have a distinct “space-feel” to them with white walls, and light panels and buttons everywhere you’d expect to see on a starcruiser.
Many people have likened the bedroom in the Star Wars Hotel to staying in prison because of its small size. Yes, the room is tiny, on level with many of the Disney Cruise Line rooms, but we didn’t think it was that noticable.
Honestly, it looks much smaller in photos than it does when you are inside it. I don’t know how Disney does it, maybe it’s the unique layout, but the room definitely makes the best use of the approximately 200 square feet it has to work with.
On our visit, there were two of us in the room and we had plenty of walking space around the beds, even with our suitcases in the room.
This would be a lot tighter obviously with 4 adults, but for 2 nights you can make it work.
Overall we really like the style of the room and its unique style and shapes perhaps make it the best-themed room in Walt Disney World. They definitely keep you immersed in the story.
Even though you won’t be spending a ton of time in your guest cabin, the most important feature of the rooms are the beds. Let’s face it, if the bed isn’t big enough or comfortable enough, you aren’t going to get a good night’s rest and wake up ready to go in the morning.
The standard guest cabins on the Galactic Starcruiser have 3 beds. 1 Queen Bed and 2 Bunk Beds, or Berths as Disney calls them. There are no King-sized beds available in any of the guest cabins.
The queen bed is located in the middle of the room and is big enough for 2 people.
We’ve heard some people complain about the mattress on the queen bed saying it is too firm. Honestly, we didn’t feel that way and we thought the support/comfort ratio was pretty good. We don’t like sleeping on a really soft mattress though and don’t use a pillow-top, so if you are used to those, you may not like it.
The white quilted sheets on top of the bed are very light. There was a thin white one, and an orange and gray blanket runner on top of that with the Chandrila Star Line Starcruiser logo. Everything was light yet pretty comfortable.
The bed has pillows with covers made from a similar material as the quilted sheets.
2 of the pillows were a little softer and the other 2 more firm so it was easy to make a nice combination to find the right match. We aren’t too picky about pillows and found them to be as good as most.
The black leather headboard above the bed was pretty cool. We like the texture with thousands of tiny holes in the pattern, making it look like braille almost, giving it a cool effect.
Here’s a shot of my suitcase on the bed to give you an idea of the dimensions.
Here’s a side shot of the details on the bed. Those panels are another added detail, though it would have been a lot cooler if the buttons were functional.
Bunk Beds (Berths)
Ok, every Disney World Resort has a regular bed, but how many of them have bunk beds?? I have to admit, when I first saw this, the little kid in me jumped for joy and I thought this was about the coolest idea. But are they practical?
There are two bunk beds, a top one and a lower one and they are built into the wall making good use of the small space in the room. They are brilliantly themed to the room, and kids are going to love how they look.
To get up to the top bunk you need to use the metal ladder attached to the side.
The ladder is pretty sturdy and it held me easily even though I am well over 200 pounds. They might be tricky do get down from in the middle of the night though if you need to use the bathroom.
Inside each of the bunks is a vinyl-covered mattress which is thin and very firm. There are no sheets on the bed, but each one comes with a rolled-up blanket that is kind of like a sleeping bag.
We absolutely loved the sleeping bag! It was very cozy and we wish they would start selling these in the gift shop, we’d buy one in a heartbeat.
Here is what it looks like when it is all rolled out. Also, notice the small reading light on the wall. That is in both the upper and lower bunks.
Here is a view of the room from the upper bunk.
Even though the bunk beds give the room a really cool look, the beds themselves were not very comfortable, much less so than the queen bed.
The good news is that crew members told us they were replacing the mattresses immediately because other people have already complained about them. So by the time you read this, they are most likely better than the ones we tried.
The only other issue we had with the bunk beds is there is no power outlets or USB ports in them. That means you have to plug in your phone somewhere else to charge and can’t have it right next to you.
There is one USB port behind the nightstand on the side of the bed, but you will need a long USB cord if you want to plug in your phone from the bunk.
Can Adults Sleep in the Bunk Beds?
Disney claims on their website that the bunk beds are big enough for a full-grown adult, so we couldn’t wait to get in one and see for ourselves!
The bunk beds look really small in photos, but they are actually pretty big and can sleep an adult over 6 feet tall pretty comfortably, even on the top bunk. I would say any person up to about 6 ft 3-4 inches shouldn’t have a problem with the length.
Let’s not forget one of the most important features of any hotel room, the bathroom, or “the refresher” in Star Wars-speak. You can close the sliding bathroom door from the hallway to have privacy.
The bathroom is a split design with a sink, vanity, and shower in the main part of the room, and a separate chamber for the toilet if you need some extra privacy.
We were expecting a much smaller bathroom to be honest, but it’s actually quite big and the same size, if not bigger than other bathrooms throughout the Disney World Resort Hotels.
The vanity here is where you will find the sink and many of the other accessories you will need throughout your stay. There are soap dispensers on the wall, a towel rack on the front of the vanity, as well as a tissue dispenser. There are shelves underneath with extra towels and a hairdryer.
The sink follows the rest of the room’s theming and is made of stainless steel.
There are some washcloths rolled up on the side of the sink.
As you will see in the shower, the hand soap and body lotion are located in pump dispensers, so you can’t take them home with you.
There are, however, some free toiletries that you can take home with you located in the small metal box on the vanity. These include facecloths to remove makeup and a foaming bubble mask for your face, something like you would get at a spa. These are all on theme and look fancy.
If multiple people are in the room and need to get ready at the same time, the room with the toilet has a sliding door you can close for privacy.
There isn’t much in here except for the toilet, a mirror, and some towels on the rack above you will need for the shower.
We did appreciate the small, themed details such as the Chandrila Star Line logo on the toilet paper roll and towels.
Next, let’s look at the walk-in shower. There is a frosted glass door on the outside you can close, again handy if you need privacy but others want to use the bathroom.
The shower was surprisingly large, much larger than at my house, and really nice! There is a big waterfall-type showerhead on the ceiling and a hand-held showerhead if you need more mobility.
The water pressure was excellent, something that is not always the case at Disney hotels. The water mixing controls were easy to use and we had no problem finding the right temperature.
Here is a look at the inside of the shower door and the sliding mechanism it uses. The door was heavy and slides nicely. We didn’t have any issues closing it completely and no water escaped making the floor wet (which is something we hate in hotel bathrooms).
A trend at Walt Disney World Resort hotels in recent years is to include pump dispensers in the shower for the shampoo, body wash, and conditioner, instead of individual small bottles.
For people who liked to bring those home as souvenirs, that time has passed and the pump dispensers are here to stay.
One of our big complaints in Disney hotels is finding shampoo and body wash pumps that are not easy to pump or that even fall apart when you do because the person refilling them didn’t put them back together correctly.
That was not an issue here, and at least these ones are pretty sturdy and easy to pump.
What makes the guest cabins on the Galactic Starcruiser really stand out from any other hotel room in the world, are the windows into space. We have been waiting years for these, so let’s take a closer look.
You have probably seen the space windows in other parts of the ship, but they are also in each guest cabin and provide incredible views.
That’s right, there are no real windows in the guest rooms, so you can’t see the real world outside. You won’t have a view out into the parking lot or see any trees or gardens either. Instead, you are looking into space where you will see planets, spaceships, and droids moving by.
In fact, there is a whole world of activity happening right outside for you to enjoy.
After spending some time looking at them, we really thought they were cool, but they do have some design issues. When the lights are on in the rooms, they can be hard to see out of and give off a nasty glare, especially around the corners of the window. This greatly reduces the impact they were designed to make.
However, when you turn the lights off, the annoying reflections go away and it’s an entirely different effect. That is when they really shine and you get the incredible effect the Disney Imagineers were going for. They really do make you feel like you are floating through space.
There are more details around the edges of each window including lights and ports.
The buttons don’t do anything, but they are cool to look at.
Can You Turn Off the Space Windows?
Don’t worry, you don’t have to leave the space windows open all night as the light might prevent you from sleeping. If you want to close them, all you have to do is push a button below the window that brings down the blinds and blocks the view during sleeping hours, giving you total darkness.
Though we realize most people will need total darkness, there was something special that happened when we turned off the room lights and left the window open for the night. It really gave the room a calm and peaceful feeling, and at that moment we were completely convinced we were on the Halcyon Starcruiser traveling through space.
We can imagine that is exactly what Disney Imagineers were going for and it was one of the coolest hotel experiences we’ve had in a while.
Can I Open the Windows?
No, you cannot open the space windows to see the outside world. The only way you can see outside is to leave the hotel. All areas inside the hotel block out the outside world.
Even though you won’t be spending much time watching TV while on the Starcruiser, there is one on the wall opposite the bed.
When you arrive you even see a personalized message on the TV from the Halcyon Starcruiser with your names on it.
What Can I Watch on TV?
The TV at the Star Wars Hotel has all the same channels you would find at any Disney World Resort hotel on earth. That way guests can feel comfortable and be able to watch all their regular programs.
It still is very puzzling why Dinsey doesn’t offer Disney+ in its hotel rooms though.
Honestly, though, we didn’t have any time to watch TV as we were exhausted from doing the missions all day long. We recommend staying up longer exploring the ship and taking advantage of everything to do and to watch TV when you go back home.
Droid Telephone System
A very underrated feature of the cabins was the telephone system. This is located on the wall right next to the TV.
It has a phone you can pick up in the center bottom of the unit and an intercom on the right side with a video screen. There are also temperature controls for the room in the top center.
The phone looks like a standard corded phone and you can use it to call the desk if you need anything, just like in a regular hotel.
There are some other neat details on the side.
What really makes this phone special though is the AI droid D3-09 who is the host of your voyage. Instead of just being a regular phone, you get messages from her relating to missions and the overall events happening on the starcruiser. She also surveys guests and assists them with questions, and helps explain the events in the story.
Communicating with a droid was pretty smooth, and there is even a scary event that happens later on, so check your messages. She also will sing you a lullaby at night which was hilarious.
We have already looked at the biggest features of the cabins, now let’s check out some of the smaller details.
Back in the hallway near the entrance, there are cabinets behind the doors in the wall with plenty of shelves for storing clothes or other items.
If you have valuables you don’t want to leave out, the room has a safe you can store them in.
At the bottom of the cabinet, you will find the Cooling Supply Unit. Yes, every guest cabin on the Galactic Starcruiser has a mini-fridge, but there isn’t really much to put in it. We didn’t use it at all.
Here is the inside of the min-fridge.
The other cabinet doors reveal a closet where you can hang your Star Wars costume or any other clothes you brought with you.
There are also two Chandrila Star Line robes in the closet to wear when you go down to the spa. Ok, there is no spa at the Star Wars Hotel, but you can wear the robes at night when you are lounging out. They were very soft and silky to the touch.
At the top above the closet is an extra pillow which would be for the person sleeping on the pullout bed when available.
Back in the bathroom under the vanity you will find the “Thermal Blower,” or hairdryer as it is known back on Terra.
It is a standard hairdryer, but it comes in a really cool case. We love that Disney went the extra step to call this a thermal blower!
The room has pretty standard light panels for turning the lights on and off.
Also right near the entrance to the cabin, you’ll see a touchscreen for housekeeping. Here you can turn on the “Do Not Disturb” light on the top, or touch the little cleaning droid for housekeeping. Again, we love the theming details!
With every stay on the Galactic Starcruiser, you get a small bag upon arrival.
In that bag are Star Wars Datapads for each guest and some charging cables.
The Star Wars Datapad is essentially an iPhone that has been wiped clean and only has the Play Disney Parks app on it. It also comes with a waiver stating that you are responsible for the phone if something should happen to it.
Our Datapad is connected to our My Disney Experience account and we are ready to play!
You also get Halcyon Starcruiser medallions to take home as souvenirs. Look at how beautiful this thing is!
On the last day of your stay you are given check-out instructions and suitcase tags. In the morning you can attach them to your luggage and leave them outside the room and a crew member will take them downstairs for you where they will be waiting outside when you leave.
Here is a look at the main ceiling light. I don’t know why but it kind of resembles a projector to me only flat.
The cabins have a waste disposal can that is divided into a trash bin and a recycling bin. Recycling is also important in space.
On either side of the queen bed there are small nightstands. Inside there are power outlets if you need to charge your electronic devices.
On one of the nightstands is the TV remote control which is wrapped in plastic to ensure sanitization. This has become standard practice in all Disney hotels.
Here is a closer look at the power outlet. There is also a button which controls the lights in the room.
The nightstand on the opposite side has a power outlet and also a USB port for directly charging your UBS devices.
Honestly, I don’t know why there isn’t a USB adapter on each side. With all the recent resort hotel room remodels, Disney has been pretty good about adding an abundance of USB ports in each room considering how reliant guests are on them nowadays.
That’s why it’s puzzling to me to see that there are no USB ports in the bunk beds and only one near the nightstands. One USB port in the entire room…someone want to explain that one to me?
We needed to attach a 6ft USB cable just to charge our phone from the bunk bed.
There are other power outlets around the room, this one over by the mirror in the entryway. It looks a little worn to me even though this is the first-ever Galactic Starcruiser voyage…
Above the nightstands on each side, you will see a small flip-out light you can use for reading.
These were easy to use and generally a nice addition.
On the wall with the space window, you will find the air conditioning vents.
There are two locations with 3 vents each.
One subtle thing we liked were the wall panels. The walls weren’t your typical sheetrock and plastered walls but it was a heavy-duty plastic paneling that was textured.
It was definitely something you would think the walls would be made from on a starship.
What about if you need a place to work, use your laptop or eat? There is a built-in table in the wall with two small ottoman stools that pull out from underneath.
The table wasn’t very deep and we have it pulled out all the way in the photo below.
It was good enough to set my laptop on and that’s about it.
The stools open up to reveal storage compartments which can be used for clothes etc.
On the inside of the main door, you will find the evacuation route in case of an emergency. Hopefully, there are plenty of shuttles off the ship in that case, and not like the Titanic.
Even though we are in space, there also is an emergency door located on the side of the space window.
It’s a long narrow door built into the wall panels.
Just turn the knob and you can get out.
Guests can check in to the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm on their arrival day. On the last morning for disembarkation, guests can check out anytime between 6:00 am and 9:45 am. We recommend, however, sticking around for breakfast as it’s quite good.
If you push the button to close the shades and turn off the space window, the room gets completely dark. There are no other lights in the room except for a few small buttons near the door.
The guest cabins at the Galactic Starcruiser are definitely the smallest guest rooms in any Walt Disney World Resort hotel and are similar in size to the cabins on the Disney Cruise Line.
No, probably not. Everyone, of course, is different but we didn’t feel claustrophobic at all while in the room and we don’t particularly like small spaces. It also depends on how many people you go with. If there are 4 or 5 adults in the room it will get cramped.
The rooms on the Starcruiser are similar in size to Disney Cruise Line rooms. Most Disney Crusie Line rooms run from 200-240 square feet, in comparison the Star Wars Hotel rooms are about 200 square feet. However, some of the inside rooms on the Disney Cruise Line ships can be as small as 169 square feet, so in comparison, the ones on the Starcruiser feel much bigger.
No there is no coffee pot in the room. You can get coffee at the Sublight Lounge on Deck 6 or in the Crown of Corellia Dining Room on Deck 4.
Yes, there is a mini-fridge in the room, though you probably won’t need it since you won’t be bringing leftovers back to your cabin.
Yes, housekeeping is available upon request. All you need to do is push the small droid button by the front door to get your cleaned, or you can also hit the do not disturb button if you want privacy.
Most of your tips are covered in the price of your hotel package and you don’t need to tip extra to the crew members in most situations. It’s not like a Disney Cruise in that regard. The only time you might want to tip is for valet parking and room attendants.
The air-conditioning system works great, just like all other Walt Disney World Resort hotel rooms. We found the rooms to be much colder than the general temperature throughout the hotel.
No, don’t worry about getting motion sickness. It’s not like a cruise where the ship moves or sways back and forth. There is absolutely no movement once you are on board. The only thing that moves is the space shuttle (an elevator) that simulates launching to space, but it’s very mild.
You can buy things like toothbrushes and other toiletries in the gift shop, but you will need to ask a crew member to see them as they are not visible in normal circumstances. We even needed something that was not available, and a crew member was kind enough to offer to go to a store all the way on Earth and get it for us.
ECVs and scooters cannot be stored in guest cabins or in the hallways. There are designated parking locations on each deck of the starcruiser.
Having an internet connection is crucial to the whole Galactic Starcruiser experience, and we had no problems getting online during our stay. We had full bars on our cell phones and the on-site wi-fi worked in every room we went. I wish I could say the same thing for other Disney World Resorts.
Now that you know about the cabins, you’re now going to have to actually book a reservation. We cover this info in our complete guide to booking the Star Wars hotel but we have some of the basics here below.
Reservations for the Galactic Starcruiser are available for booking right now and as of this writing, dates are available through the end of the year.
Booking a room is easy. You can either make reservations directly with Disney or through an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.
- Authorized Disney Vacation Planner – This is the easiest way. Contact an authorized planner with your dates and guest info, and they will take care of all the arrangements for you.
- Directly through Disney – To make your reservation, call (407) 939-1800 from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM Eastern Time. Guests under 18 years of age must have parent or guardian permission to call.
There are no online reservations for the Star Wars Hotel at this time.
We much prefer using an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner instead of getting on the phone and booking it ourselves because it’s way easier, and they are FREE to use.
Having someone on your side who knows what to expect will help make everything much easier. They can book your dining and whatever extra experiences you want to do. They even waited on the phone for me for 7 hours to book my room so I didn’t have to!
Since they are absolutely free to use, they will end up saving you a ton of money on your trip. We recommend René at Show You the World Travel for all your trip planning needs. We use them multiple times per year and they give you the best service and savings combination out there!

My name is Ziggy and I love Disney, everything Disney! I grew up on Disney and it has and continues to be a huge part of my life. I started young when my parents took me to Disney World when I was 18 months old. Little did they know that would be the first of an uncountable number of trips we would take. I have so many amazing memories going to Disney with my family and friends and it has been interwoven into my DNA.
