I think we all knew that Star Wars would become a major part of what Disney did in their parks once the company bought Lucasfilms. I have all ready written in the blog how a major Star Wars Land addition is coming to Hollywood Studios. This week, news broke that it’s not just the parks that are getting in on the Star Wars fun, but Disney Cruise Lines as well. The company has announced that on 8 select sailings on the Disney Fantasy there will be a special Star Wars Day at Sea. The sailings leave on January 9, 23; February 6, 20; March 5, 19; April 2 and 16, 2016. According to the Disney Parks Blog:
Star Wars Day at Sea will transport guests to a galaxy far, far away — in the Western Caribbean. The event features a full day of Star Wars celebrations, including a deck party, meet-and-greets with favorite characters, Star Wars-themed youth activities, unique food and beverage offerings, and special merchandise. Also featured will be exclusive at-sea screenings of the Star Wars films and the new Disney XD animated series, Star Wars Rebels.
The blog also reports that “Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Stormtroopers and other characters” will be on board to greet guests and that there will special screenings of all 6 films and the Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels. Special guests and celebrities from the Star Wars galaxy will also be on board and the night will end with the Star Wars Deck Party and Fireworks, which according to the Disney Parks Blog includes:
There’s intergalactic fun when the Star Wars deck party blasts off to an exciting evening filled with music, dancing and games.
Star Wars characters converge on the deck stage for a celebration of the Star Wars saga in a show featuring special effects and guest participation.
The deck party culminates in a spectacular display of themed pyrotechnics, lighting, sound effects, lasers and Star Wars music.
Personally I think this sounds amazing for any Star Wars fan. You get some of the best parts of the Star Wars weekends at the Studios in one Day on the beautiful Disney Fantasy. There is no doubt bookings for these sailings will increase quickly, so contact me today for more info!
