    $4800USD for 2, for 2 days? Their 'aving a laff...

    BTW, I'm not a Star Wars fan and most of what I know about the story, comes from watching Family Guy.

    Perhaps the most memorable aspects of this experience for Star Wars fans will be the 'unexpected story moment' on day one and the chance for two more 'story moments' on your second day

    My biggest gripe is that the font looks more Star Trek than Star Wars.

    There's a lot that goes into this, though - Solid roleplay/cosplay, with quite a few theme park rides and full immersion entertainment, for all ages, directed and chaperoned by a large contingent of costumed staff, all done so people of all ages and levels of mental acuity follow directions and don't break or spoil anything... for up to 48 solid hours?

    Yeah, that is a pretty big ask and bound to cost quite a bit. Not sure it quite justifies £2,400 per person... but then a single night in the Royal Suite at The Goring will cost £8,000 and you don't even get to swing lightsabres around.
    Don't even ask about the Mandarin Oriental!!

    Re: Disney Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser breaks launch in 2022

    I reckon they are looking at a few factors - hype it enough that early adopters will pay to be first, the hardcore element of the fan base who spend a fortune on props, etc, that people potentially have money saved from not being able to go on a couple of annual holidays (not so much if you lost your job, but Disney don't care about those people) and feeling they deserve a "treat" after being stuck inside for so long.

    So they go and get stuck inside a mock spaceship from which there is no escape.

    Great.

    Looks more Battlestar Galactica than Star Trek to me, but either way it's not the Star Wars font which is just odd.

    It sounds fun, and I'd probably enjoy it. I just need to get rich first. Or perhaps we could have a Hexus competition

    If I won, I'd have to take a friend or he'd never forgive me.
    The womenfolk would remain at home with the younglings and padawans, while he and me went off on our bromantic weekend in a galaxy far, far away....

    I note they actually made an attempt to appeal to middle aged white men, I thought we were all incompetent or evil according to Disney these days?

    And by relieving you of your money, your evil power is weakened....
