They put a lot of effort into it, but sadly, one of the more than 21 Walt Disney World resorts will close later this year. In fact, it was never like one of their other resorts.

The Walt Disney World Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is an adventure that can’t be compared to staying in a resort hotel. It was created to be an immersive experience for the fan of the “Star Wars” universe.

Back in 2021, we told you that the resort was not cheap. The cabins began at $1,209 per person per night in a two-night stay. That was a total in excess of $4,800. Three in a cabin cost over $5,200 and a cabin with four could be close to $6,000 for the two-night stay.

The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser began offering deals to Disney Vacation Club members, and later for Walt Disney World annual passholders. Now we’ve received word that the end is near for this very special experience.

On the Walt Disney World website, there was an update posted. It explained that the end is coming soon for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. The “final voyage” will be September 28-30, 2023. For those whose bookings were beyond that date, they will be contacted by Disney cast members to change their plans.

Here’s what the experience at Walt Disney World’s Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is like:
