“Who’d spend $6,000 to remain at Disney’s Star Wars resort for and LARP for 2 nights?” all of us requested, able to be lower down by our hubris like Anakin Skywalker slicing his manner via younglings. Seems the reply is lots of people.
Revealed throughout in the present day’s Disney FY2021 earnings name for shareholders, Disney CEO Bob Chapek confirmed that Walt Disney World’s Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser has been “nearly” absolutely booked out for its first 4 months of operation.
