Everyone has been talking about Disney’s latest Star Wars themed cash grab, aboard the Disney Wish, the Kaiburr Crystal Drink. Yes, for $5,000 you can order this special drink at the Hyperspace Lounge, but as it turns out, it does come with far more than just the alcoholic beverage.
For those who missed the update about the Kaiburr Crystal, here you go. The $5,000 gets you more than just the Star Wars-inspired cocktail. https://t.co/Tkp1CfulO5

It seems that if you order the drink you will get a canister that contains four, silver-plated, glasses you can keep. You get the beverage that contains:
- Camus Cognac
- Yuzu and Kumquat
- Grand Marnier Quintessence
- Three shots including: one Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Reserve Bourbon, one Taylor’s Kingsman Edition Very Old Tawny Port and one Watenshi Gin.
But there is more. According to Disney Dining, you will also get some extras sent to your room including:
- A water bottle, backpack, and a Hyperspace-themed room decoration
- A bottle of Sparkling Wine, from Skywalker Ranch
- A voucher for one person to visit Skywalker Ranch where tours are not usually available to the public, but this grants one an exception.
Of course you will have to pay more to get yourself there and all the expenses surrounding that.
Right off the bat it was selling out. Just like the $109k trip Disney was offering. That one sold out before it went to the general public. This is why Disney doesn’t care if they are pricing out most people. Or if the experience in the parks isn’t what it used to be. They are busy chasing after the people with money that will pay these ridiculous prices because money isn’t a concern for them. The downside is that for many, even the wealthy, it’s all one and done, which is probably why the Galactic Starcruiser is mostly wide open till the end of 2022.
Disney is making these offerings so outlandish that people with money will buy them and the other 99% will surely talk about it. The publicity alone is worth it to them.
