In a case of you can’t make this up, Disney, who has recently come under fire for their alleged Reimagine Tomorrow seminar that included a priveledge checklist (test) is reportedly hiring internally for Signature Services for the upcoming Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel.
You know. The hotel that is rumored to be thousands of dollars for a weekend. I guess priveledge is fine and dandy with Disney when they want to cater to those that may have it. Just don’t have it if you work there!
“The position is casting out of the Disney Reservation Center. These “white glove service” Cast Members would help ensure guests have everything they need for the perfect vacation (which will be important give the cost to stay at this luxury experience). The service can help with anything from tickets and dining reservations, to recreation and more, perhaps offering what typical guests may not have access to booking.”
They want to hire internally for Cast Members to give high paying guests the “white glove service.”
Signature Services is something Disney offers to guests with reservations at “select room types at Disney Resort hotels, and guests who book the private VIP tours.
You know the VIP Tours that cost between $425-$750 an hour on top of theme park admission for each park visited. To be fair, you can have up to 10 guests in your group for that price.
Here’s what Signature Service is according to Disney:
“What We Do
The Disney Signature Services team can help you plan vacation experiences that are custom-tailored to your travel party’s unique interests. Upon request, they can:
- Plan and schedule Enchanting Extras, like Private Disney VIP Tours and more
- Create and plan special celebrations and gifts
- Make dining reservations”
It seems Disney is making the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser a very expensive and exclusive option for people and they’re probably hoping that the Signature Service availability will help sell people on the high cost. That along with offering people a lot of the special things they had said were going to be offered at Galaxy’s Edge.
Hey, I get it. Business is business. Disney needs to make up for the money lost during the pandemic closures. And they can charge what they want and they will probably get it. It just seems a bit hypocritical given how they’ve been trying to portray themselves in the media and that seminar.
It also just confirms that the prices are going to be ridiculous at this hotel. I don’t think anyone is surprised about that.
