The Galactic Starcruiser is opening up officially on March 1, 2022. Right now the “trusted media” are getting wined and dined while it’s new and they can “influence” people to go. So far I’m not super impressed with the hotel, but it is possible that when I see some of the images and videos after the embargo lifts, I could find some more positives.
I think if the price was much more reasonable for what it is I could see more than I do now. The room I’ve seen that sleeps more people is so small that I’m finding it hard to believe it’s the price it is. I can’t wait to see the larger state rooms that people can buy for a mark up. Looking for the prices on those as well.
But the one thing I sincerely am looking forward to seeing is the costumes guests create to wear to the hotel. Not the pre-fab ones you can buy, but actual handcrafted work shown off around the hotel or Galaxy’s Edge.
One thing that I have learned from the cosplay community, they do not disappoint! I know when we have visited conventions or even Star Wars Celebration, the fans have the best costumes and most creative takes on Star Wars outfits that feel like they belong in a galaxy, far, far away.
I can’t wait to see all your costumes!
There are guidelines for the costumes. I know many have been asking about that so I went and found them for you.
I also recommend checking out sites like Etsy for some amazing costuming, patterns, and ideas. You can buy anything from full costumes, to skater dresses, leggings, and more bounding type looks.
Here are the costuming guidelines for those who are going to the Halcyon:
“When living out your Star Wars adventure aboard the Halcyon starcruiser, we encourage you to dress the part with appropriately themed outfits and creative costumes that add to the fun. We can’t wait to see how you will come dressed for these special voyages!
As always, Walt Disney World Resort values safety and good judgment, and we have specific requirements during your Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser journey. As you prepare your wardrobe, please take a moment to read over the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules.
Aboard the Starcruiser
Here are the costume policies for while you are onboard the starcruiser:
- Costumes that may distract from the experience of other Guests are not permitted.
- All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but they may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
- Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
- Costumes may not contain any props or accessories that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
- Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
- Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
- Acceptable accessories include transparent wings, plastic lightsabers, toy swords and tutus. Costume headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
- Guests ages 13 and under may wear some costume masks; masks may not cover the entire face and must provide unobstructed peripheral vision at all times with openings that allow the eyes to be fully seen.
- Costume masks of any kind may not be worn by Guests ages 14 and older.
In Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Costumes, like full-length robes, may not reach or drag on the ground.
- Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.”
I hope that information helps those of you wanting to wear a costume! I sincerely can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with, even if I don’t think the hotel is quite worth the price.
