Iger reportedly rejected ideas to alter the function of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, instead opting to shutter the attraction

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, the ambitious experience that transported guests into the immersive world of Star Wars, is closing in September of this year. According to reporting by The Wrap, Disney CEO Bob Iger rejected ideas to retheme or add different options to the Galactic Starcruiser experience, opting to shutter it instead.

One of the rejected ideas was a potential retheming of the Starcruiser experience to accommodate different franchises or intellectual properties such as “The Mandalorian.” The thought was the extreme popularity of the adventures of Mando and Grogu could potentially increase bookings.

Another rejected idea was the concept of offering day trips to the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, rather than requiring guests to stay for the full duration of the experience. The proposal suggested that guests could visit the Starcruiser for a single day, similar to how visitors experience theme parks, with access provided to specific areas of the resort such as the gift shop and bar. The day trip option would obviously be counter to the 2-day immersive theme of the experience, but would potentially have allowed guests to experience Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser who found the cost of the 2-day excursion to be outside of their price range.

Would re-theming to The Mandalorian be enough to prompt you to book a stay at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser? Would you have considered a day trip in lieu of a 2-day trip? Leave us a comment and let us know!
