Disney Trying To Entice Galactic Starcruiser Guests With Face Painting Upcharge?


Yes, you read that correctly. Disney has put out a post on the Disney Parks Blog promoting their upcoming Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser face painting. Because that will get the bookings up.

Now when you pay $4,800-$6,000 base to go on the less than two day “voyage” you will now have the option to get a face painting package. They come to your room and you can sit in your room entry area (doorway area) for 30 mins to get your face painted!  Probably do it there because they can’t move around the room it’s too cramped.

Starting on May 2nd, guests can add the “Image Design” option on their “cruise” and yes it’s an upcharge. Because of course it is.

Here is what it says on the website:


Enhance your character with a personalized, galactic makeover right in your cabin! Our talented “image designers” are ready to create your out-of-this-world look in the style of fan-favorite alien species so iconic to Star Wars. Choose from a selection of eye-catching, face-painted designs for a look that inspires your unique story aboard the Halcyon starcruiser. Plus, appointments are limited, so jump to hyperspace and reserve yours as soon as possible!

  • Look for the blue “Batuu Approved” symbol in the species design examples if you’d like to wear a look in the parks, where only partial face covering is allowed.
  • The makeover experience will take place at the entry area within your cabin.
  • The cabin door will remain open during the transformation.
  • This is a face paint experience and does not include any costumes depicted in sample images.

To be honest, most of us could do these ourselves with minimal effort or materials:

I have no words.

But good news for those of you going that would want to pay for it!

I do not think this is going to increase the bookings.
