Attention all Star Wars Fans! We have some big news out of Disney today regarding the fully immersive Galactic Starcruiser hotel that is coming to Star Wars Galaxy's Edge.

Today Disney released the first look inside of the rooms:

If you don't know what I'm talking about, let me tell you more about what we have learned about this incredible immersive Star Wars experience that is coming soon.

As you pull up to this immersive resort, this is the concept art that Disney has shared with us showing what it will look like.

Once you are checked in you will board your own launch pod.

This is not your normal hotel lobby. You will look up and go through Hyperspace as you near the Halcyon (the name of the ship you will be on board during your stay).

After the launch pod docks with the Halcyon you will step into the ships main deck. Here is the concept art Disney has shared with us of how this will look:

There are so many immersive experiences inside the ship (all included with your stay). You can learn about the ship and learn how to operate it:

You can practice light saber training to improve your Jedi skills:

Even the dining options on board the Halcyon will be fully immersive. Check out the Silver C Lounge on board:

When you are inside of your cabin (pictured at the beginning of this blog) it is fully immersive. Each window from your room looks out into the galaxy and is constantly changing.

This concept will be a multi day experience that is not only fully immersive but all inclusive. The price per passenger will include the room, experiences and dining options. We are waiting for further details if it also includes park tickets, etc. We are told it will open into Galaxy's Edge at Hollywood Studios, so you are fully immersed throughout your entire stay.

Are you excited to visit the Halcyon and this fully immersive Star Wars experience? We don't know when we can book this for our guests but are gathering names now so that you will be contacted by your Exclusive Travel Partners agent the MINUTE it goes on sale to the public. If you would like to be added to that list, please contact your Exclusive Travel Partners agent today or email us at

May the Force be With You!

Going to Disney World in the Fall is ALWAYS a good time, but today Disney announced some super exciting things debuting in the parks next week that we can't wait to share with you.

On top of the fun Fall displays, merchandise and snacks in the parks Disney has announced MORE Fall fun that will run from September 15- October 31st.

Our favorite part of today's announcement is that Disney Villains will be on display via character cavalcades at Disney's Magic Kingdom park!

Since Disney re opened their parks this year, they have been finding fun and creative ways to showcase their beloved characters.

This new option will allow us to see the Disney Villains up close in a new and creative way.

These character cavalcades are never announced and happen sporadically throughout the day so that social distancing can safely occur.

The Villains will include Gaston, Jafar, Maleficent, Queen of Hearts and Jack Skellington! We can't wait to see the Villains this Fall in Disney!

Other fun character cavalcades will include your favorite Disney characters all decked out for Halloween.

But wait, there is more!

Are you a fan of the Dapper Dans? We know we are! Disney announced that their alter egos "Cadaver Dans" will be on display singing their favorite spooky tunes starting September 20th.

We are so excited to visit the Disney parks this Fall and would love to help you get to Disney World to see it all for yourself.

Have you experienced the amazing Rise of the Resistance attraction located inside Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios?

Did you know that you can't just jump in line or grab a fast pass for this attraction? The ONLY way to ride is to get a boarding group.

In a recent update, Disney opened up two virtual queues: one at 10 a.m. and another at 2 p.m. which allowed people to get to the park later and possibly get a boarding group.

Even with this update, it can be super stressful and you need some help/tips to get into a group. (our team at Exclusive Travel Partners has some AMAZING insider tips to help you with this).

Today Disney announced ANOTHER much needed update to the Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group system.

Before, under the stress of the clock (because every second counts when trying to secure a group) you would have to quickly select the members of your party who are on your MyDisneyExperience account in order to get to the next screen to join a group. If you accidentally selected someone who wasn't in the park, or it took you some time to select the correct people with you that day, that precious time could mean you would miss out on a boarding group that day.

Disney listened and made an amazing update today: NOW it will automatically select those in your travel party on your MyDisneyExperience app that have scanned a ticket and are in the park with you at Hollywood Studios that day. No longer will you have to take up that valuable time to select the guests with you who want to ride Rise with you.

We are so excited about this update and it will help our guests experience this one of a kind attraction.

Did you know our planning service to you for Disney is TOTALLY FREE! Our Disney experts know all the tips and tricks and can help YOU secure a boarding group, make dining reservations, select the perfect Disney resort and help with park touring plans so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy an amazing Disney World vacation.
