Disney Presents Galactic Starcruiser Lightsaber Training
ORLANDO, Florida – Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, the interactive two-night hotel experience, will open next year at Disney World.
The experience will include activities such as lightsaber training, allowing Star Wars fans to experience their own Star Wars stories.
Over the weekend, Disney shared a preview of what lightsaber training will look like aboard Cruiser Halcyon.
A video released during a Destination D23 presentation on Saturday featured Josh D’Amaro, president of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, experiencing the training for himself.
While visiting the Star Cruiser, D’Amaro also spent time on the ship’s gangway, where guests can take the ship into hyperspace. The deck will also feature buttons that allow guests to control and defend the ship.

During the presentation, D’Amaro took a moment to show off the “real” lightsaber that Disney had developed.
“It’s real,” D’Amaro told the crowd.
