Disney CFO Forgets the Name of the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Hotel in Walt Disney World


The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser luxury hotel is so vital to Walt Disney World, that Disney CFO Christine McCarthy can’t even remember what it’s called.

During a recent event at Walt Disney World, McCarthy fumbled around with the name of the Galactic Starcruiser, first calling it the “Starship,” then “Star Galactica” (similar to a franchise owned by Disney’s direct competitor NBCUniversal) and finally “Galactic Starship,” which is still wrong… but at least is somewhat close.

You can watch for yourself in the video below.

While execs often do flub names of products when put on the spot, it’s been pointed out that Disney’s current bosses are dropping the ball more and more often these days.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek botched Walt Disney World’s motto at a recent college commencement ceremony. He referred to Disney World as “The Happiest Place on Earth,” which is actually Disneyland’s motto. It didn’t go unnoticed by the internet.


Again, Disney has a lot on its plate these days. But Disney fans are wondering aloud how much their executive leadership teams really know about the company’s products.

Especially when they’re being paid the kinds of money they’re being paid.
