Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser to Close September 30


In a somewhat surprising move, Disney announced today that the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser is taking its "final voyage" this coming September 28-30, 2023.  This post will discuss what happened, why it's happening and what it might mean for future projects.

This blog didn't talk all that much about the Starcruiser for two reasons - one, this is WDW-centric blog, largely focused on the parks, and this technically doesn't qualify.  And two, we never had the opportunity to experience it firsthand, so there was no sort of "review" that could be done that would be reflective of our own personal feelings.

Dining Plan Returns, Park Reservations (Mostly) Eliminated and More!

Disney dropped a big chunk of news related to 2024 visits today and there is a LOT to get to.  It's funny timing, as I was just talking to someone yesterday about a 2024 trip and we realized that park tickets weren't available yet.  I looked back, and 2023 packages went on sale on June 8, so I had a feeling it was coming soon.  I guess I just didn't realize HOW soon, as this news then broke today.

These bits of news run the gamut, but they all have to do with trips that would begin in 2024 (specifically January 9, 2024, in most cases).  There's always a bit of dread when I see that new Disney news is dropping, but there wasn't any cause for concern this time (which, to be honest, has been the case with a lot of recent news - a good trend!).  All of these things are good news in different ways, so let's dig in and talk about them one at a time.
