Disney evacuated guests from its immersive Galactic Starcruiser experience. See all the photos and details here.
What is the Galactic Starcruiser?
Disney World’s Galactic Starcruiser is an immersive multi-day role-playing adventure. Basically you are the hero as you live out your wildest Star Wars fantasies. Think of it like a Star Wars version of a cruise…on land. There are missions and experiences, excursions to Batuu, and opportunities to interact with your favorite characters.
Every experience onboard the Halcyon starcruiser is designed to create an unique story where guests choose their own adventure role playing. Choices guests make affect their experiences with characters, crew, and other passengers.
For example, guests may be asked to deliver a secret message, take part in a high-stakes heist, or hide an ally. These decisions impact how the story unfolds with other passengers and Star Wars characters.
Sounds pretty cool, right? This immersive experience will set you back a few thousand dollars to board the Halcyon for 2 days. To get a feel for what the experience is like and what you need to know about it, see our post HERE.
The Galactic Starcruiser has just recently been evacuated – reportedly for the first time ever. We have not heard or seen any evacuations prior to today, July 5.
In an Instagram post, user jp_visits_disney shares he was evacuated off the Starcruiser. The photos show a backstage area with several sets of stairs. You can see many guests are making their way out of the building and into a grassy area.
The story was posted 20 hours ago, on July 4.
Disney does share what to do in case of an emergency in a pre-cruise video. Cast Members are fully prepared for what to do in these emergency situations, and Guests are made aware too.
In a subsequent post, the user shared:
Star Wars Galactic Starship was evacuated today. Luckily it was only for about 30 minutes and they took good care of us. Shade and drinks were quickly brought over. Supposedly this was the first time it’s ever happened.
We are glad to hear it was brief and everyone was taken care of! Have you ever been evacuated from a Disney hotel? Let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.
