Disney is opening the presale window for its new Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel experience today — but only for select Disney fans.

Never miss out on Disney news — sign up for TPG’s daily newsletter.

From Oct. 5–6, Club 33 and Golden Oak members have an early window to secure bookings for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. The immersive, two-night hotel experience aboard the Halcyon takes flight on March 1, 2022, and the 100 cabins and suites available are expected to sell out quickly (despite the fact that sample pricing on Disney’s website starts at $1,209 per guest per night).

According to reports on Twitter, maiden voyage pricing for March 1 is currently more than $5,000 for a standard cabin with two adults. You’ll need to put down a 20% deposit (so make sure you’re ready to pay at least $1,000 upfront when you book via phone).

Club 33 and Golden Oaks are both incredibly exclusive — with Club 33 open to a rumored invite-only 500 members and Golden Oaks only having 300 homes total. It’s unlikely that all 800 households jump to reserve Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser bookings, so don’t worry about it already selling out today or tomorrow if you’re waiting with bated breath to cash in your “credits” for a spot on board.

However, as other presale windows open up (more on that below), the fewer slots will remain for the general public.

Here is a quick rundown of when bookings are available:

  • Oct 5–6: Club 33 and Golden Oaks members
  • Oct 8–9: Disney Vacation Club members and Annual Passholders
  • Oct. 12–16: Disney Visa cardholders
  • Oct. 28: Open to the public

Currently, availability to secure a presale booking is limited and only open for a select window of voyage dates. If you’re crossing your fingers to snag a spot on the maiden voyage, hope isn’t lost.

But you’ll want to make sure to mark your calendars for Oct. 28, when reservations open up to the general public. (Or consider snagging an Annual Pass a few days early if you were already planning on it to give yourself early access.)

Whether you’re booking during a presale window or waiting, you’ll need to call to reserve (there is no online booking functionality at present). Have your preferred voyage dates (and alternates) ready, info for your entire party, which dinner reservations onboard you’re interested in, additional onboard activities you want to book (though they may not be available yet if you’re taking advantage of presale), plus any additional desired Disney plans such as other resort reservations and park pass requests.

Get your “credits” ready for booking, and may the force be with you.
