Walt Disney World announces that Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser is to close permanently in September

The writing has been on the wall for months now, and today Walt Disney World have announced that Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is being shuttered permanently!

Walt Disney World announces that Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser is to close permanently in September

In news that is both shocking, while at the same time not surprising, Walt Disney World has announced that the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser that has been suffering with Lowe occupancy will set sail on its last voyage this September.

The final voyage will be September 28, and while Disney have not revealed what will happen to the hotel building itself, could we see it reopened simply as a themed Star Wars Hotel without the interactive elements? We will just have to wait and see...

Disney’s statement announcing the news reads:

“Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of our most creative projects ever and has been praised by our Guests and recognized for setting a new bar for innovation and immersive entertainment. This premium experience gave us the opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale of 100 rooms, and we will take what we’ve learned to create future experiences that can reach more of our Guests and fans.

We will be contacting Guests booked for voyages departing on or after Sept. 30 to discuss their options and modify their plans. To prioritize these Guests, we are pausing new bookings until May 26.
