A lot of changes are happening at Walt Disney World, most notably projects are being canceled that have been previously announced. Mary Poppins attraction at Epcot. Brightline. Reflections Lakeside Lodge. Just today, Disney announced plans for Lake Nona were ending.

Historic park closures, economic hardships, and even political battles can delay or postpone Disney’s biggest plans for its theme parks and resorts. Now, another huge experience is ending, only this experience has been open for quite some time now.

The 2-day galactic experience opened to guests on March 1, 2022 after months and months of anticipation. Disney gives guests an immersive vacation including a two-night, cruise-style itinerary. Guests are the hero of their own adventure in an experience that surrounds guests in Star Wars storytelling 24 hours a day!

If guests choose to take part in this experience, they can choose from different itineraries, experience some out of this world dining and meet plenty of Star Wars characters. However, to do any of this comes with a pretty hefty price! The 2-day experience costs $6,000 for a typical family of four.
