After the opening of the Star Wars Galactic Star Cruiser, many guests wondered if this 2-day immersive experience was really worth the high price tag?

Bob Chapek shared that Star Cruiser reviews have been “excellent” and that they expect to see “100% utilization” through the end of September.

Looking at availability for this experience at the time of writing, it seems that only a handful of dates are available and many dates from May through July have all been booked. It is pretty clear that despite the high cost, guests are excited and willing to pay for this immersive experience.

  1. Current bookings are going to be composed of star wars enthusiasts anxious for the immersive experience, as well as well to do curiosity seekers. Does Disney have stats on what percentage will do it again? or are people just a one and done? I would base the starcruisers success on the percentage of people that will be back versus those that are one and done.

What do you think?
