The Walt Disney Company—worth an estimated $122.18 billion—would like you to pay back $6,000 to choose a family of 4 to its new, immersive Star Wars lodge for two nights.

Starting in the spring of 2022, any person with more than enough funds to burn up will be capable to (consider to) guide a remain at the Walt Disney Planet Resort’s Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser—attached to Hollywood Studios where the currently in-use Star Wars land, Galaxy’s Edge, resides. In newly launched specifics it’s explained as “part dwell immersive theater, element themed environment, aspect culinary extravaganza, component genuine-life position-enjoying sport.” We realized most of that previously what we did not know was what it was going to charge. Here’s the breakdown: a offer (the only way to keep) with two people to a place will expense $4,809, three friends is $5,299, and 4 friends is $5,999.

What do you get for that emptying of your personal savings account? “Every Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser vacation bundle contains a two-night keep in a properly-appointed cabin or suite, foods (excluding alcoholic and specialty beverages) and the opportunity to live your Star Wars story as a result of distinctive experiences, missions and things to do,” reads the web page. “The holiday journey also includes entry to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge—as very well as the rest of Disney’s Hollywood Studios—for your planetary tour to Batuu. Valet parking is also included.”

Certainly, just two nights—no much more, no less. If your child decides to have an epic meltdown one day? There goes 3 grand. And of class, people like to stay at Disney for a longer time than just two evenings: “We persuade you to prolong your holiday with a keep at a Disney Resort resort right before or following your Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser experience,” the web site reads. Fundamentally, “you really don’t have to go property but you just can’t continue to be here.” There are 3 concentrations of rooms (just 100 in full) with the largest, the “Grand Captain Suite,” ready to maintain eight men and women. The corporation also suggests when scheduling to have various alternate dates in intellect. The home windows in your room have a “view” of space but it is unclear if you will be in a position to actually see the actual earth also. Also, the resort has no swimming pool.

Disney Galactic Starcruiser hotel prices range from $4,809 for two guests to $5,999 for four. If your family is larger, price TBD.

The experience will enable you to gown up and pick out to be a baddie or a goodie at the hotel—otherwise referred to as the Halycon starcruiser—interact with actors, and take part in “missions.” You are going to also be in a position to access other items in your “datapad,” aka your cell phone through an app, nevertheless kids will have to be at least seven decades old to take part in the structured lightsaber schooling. Do mothers and fathers require to supervise their children every step of the way? That is unclear but when you’re at last ready to rip yourselves away from the routines at the lodge, you can take a “shuttle” to Galaxy’s Edge (prepared for a precise time), and things you do there may well influence events when you return. The sample itinerary presented demonstrates you likely to the fictional Batuu for just one particular of the days and only from 8:15 a.m.-12:50 p.m, so that included entry into Hollywood Studios is not even a full working day.

You will also will need to utilized Disney’s MagicBands when you are there (even though they’ll phone them databands) and as formerly outlined, apps. On the other hand: “Please be knowledgeable that if you decide on not to allow us to obtain specified details, we may not be able to deliver certain ordeals, solutions, and companies to you, and some of our providers may perhaps not be capable to take account of your interests and preferences to generate a customized working experience.” Eating options appear to be quite ordinary for the vacation resort accommodations, but there is a exclusive Captain’s Desk option—for an extra cost—that attributes an more class and is “in a key site in the center of the Crown of Corellia Eating Home.”

Frankly, as someone excited by the plan when it was first declared, I’m fatigued just contemplating about it. Now that we have all the aspects, what do you feel of Disney’s Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser?
