Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is permanently closed, with its final voyage taking place September 28-30, 2023.

From its opening in 2022 to its all-too-soon closure in late 2023, Galactic Starcruiser gave its passengers the once-in-a-lifetime experience of living out their Star Wars dreams in an immersive two-day adventure.

Though the Halcyon is no longer accepting passengers, we’re leaving this article published as a tribute to all of the amazing Imagineers, Cast Members, travel professionals, and Guests who made time spent onboard Galactic Starcruiser a true adventure.

Here are some ideas from our Disney Packing List to consider for your Disney Star Wars vacation.

Yes, not all these items will apply to your Galactic Starcruiser stay, but we want to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Remember that food is included in your Star Wars hotel stay so you really don’t need to bring any unless you want to.  Furthermore, this list includes items that you may want to bring with you if your Disney vacation extends beyond the 2-night star at the Star Wars hotel. Most Guests spend 2-nights at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser and then stay a few more nights at another Disney World hotel and get the most out of their Disney vacation.

Do you have to dress up for Disney’s Star Wars hotel?

No, you don’t have to dress up for Disney’s Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, but you certainly can if you want to. We think what you choose to wear is part of the fun!

Disney encourages guests to dress in their galactic best because they become a character in the story. If you choose to participate, you can get creative or head over to shopDisney and find Star Wars galaxy apparel there.

What To Wear

We encourage you to review the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser costume guidelines before you pack.  You can get as creative as you’d like (here are our suggestions), so long as it fits within Disney’s guidelines. Remember that the guidelines for Starcruiser are a little different than what you can wear at Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios, so make sure you plan accordingly for your park day.
