Is the Star Wars Experience Tour worth it at this price? Before opening bookings, Disney invited the media to take an experience tour to see what to expect in this three-day, two-night interactive hotel experience.

In Star Wars: The Galactic Star Cruiser, you board the launch pod in the terminal at Disney World to meet the majestic Halcyon Star Cruiser. Slide the airlock open and step out of the pod, and your Star Wars story begins. You'll meet and interact with both familiar and new Star Wars characters.

Set between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, you're a passenger on a star cruiser on a two-day voyage aboard the star cruiser Halcyon. During this voyage, Lieutenant Harman Croy, a first-ranking officer, boarded the ship to root out Resistance spies, and Captain Riyola Keevan and cruise director Lenka Mok acquiesced.

Croy believes that Mok's droid, SK-62O, must be detained because it holds the secrets of the Resistance. In the middle, a new mechanic named Sammy was recruited into the ranks of the Resistance.

Also on board are a Twi'lek (Tire guest) galactic superstar Gaya and her human agent Raithe Kole, a Rodian musician named Ouannii, and a musician named Sandro.

In addition to the rich story and interactive settings, as a hotel, the accommodation and food in Halcyon also have elements of Star Wars. The design in the room references interstellar ships, such as bunk beds reminiscent of the Millennium Falcon, and the windows in the walls make it feel like the ship is sailing through space, but the overall room can be a little cramped.
