Star Wars Day at Sea

Disney Cruise Line has announced that Star Wars Day at Sea will return in 2018. The event will return for 15 special sailings for four months, from January through April.

Over the past four months, guests aboard the Disney Fantasy have discovered the Force by hanging out with Jedi, Wookiees, droids, Stormtroopers and other iconic characters from the Star Wars saga during the epic day at sea on their Caribbean cruise. Now, you’re invited again to join us in 2018 when the day-long celebration returns to 15 special Disney Fantasy sailings from January through April.

Celebrate the legendary saga and its characters in an event of galactic proportions aboard Disney Cruise Line. Star Wars Day at Sea is available exclusively on select 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings from January – April 2018. Details – http://di.sn/60058p8XT

Star Wars Day at Sea, available on select Caribbean cruises, combines the power of the Force and the magic of Disney in an out-of-this-world adventure unlike any other!

So what can you expect to do during your trip?  Check out a few of the highlights below!

  1. You can get a behind-the-scenes look at the Star Wars saga with a special lineup of guest speakers. These insiders share their experiences on being a part of the saga that has created an unfathomed fandom over the last four decades.
  2. Jedi in-the-making can learn to harness the power of the Force in “Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple.” Then aspiring little ones face off against Sith Lord, Darth Vader and lethal Jedi hunter, the Seventh Sister, in an action-packed finale.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Exclusive Merchandise

The fine folks over at the Disney Parks Blog, have given us a taste of what’s to come for some of the merchandise that will be exclusive to the park. As you can see from the image above there will be a plush Kylo Ren, First Order Stormtrooper, Chewbacca, porg, Yoda, and Watto toys. No doubt, that is just the tip of the iceberg though.

At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will visit the planet of Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two attractions that take detail and immersion to the next level: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

Guests will also be able to explore a street market run by a Toydarian, a character first introduced in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” Among his wares will be handcrafted toys made by local artisans, like those seen above.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open at both the Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resorts in 2019.

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Model

A few weeks ago the Disney Park’s blog was updated with an article showcasing a milestone in the construction of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The milestone was a construction beam signing by Imagineers and cast members at the park. This is an important milestone in the construction phase of any Disney attraction.

To celebrate this milestone, a video was created showcasing the signers. The signed beam will eventually be part of the construction and a remembrance for those that participated in it.

Thousands of Disney cast members excited to see Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge coming to life at Disney’s Hollywood Studios celebrated a major construction milestone with the signing of a support beam that’ll top out the new land.
