Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Is An Immersive And Expensive Experience

In galaxy far far away – Florida – you can get the ultimate Star Wars Experience.

At Walt Disney World in Florida thye have just opened their 'Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser' hotel.

The hotel, while looking amazing, has already been slammed online for its exorbitant prices.

The immersive hotel is apparently selling luxury suites for as high as $A27,000 for a two-night stay. Basically, it costs as much to stay here as it did to make the first film.

In the months building up to the hotel's debut, Disney World fans have been outraged by the steep prices.

A family of four will pay about $A8200 for two nights with accommodation, meals and entertainment included, the New York Post reported.

Those not on a budget can go all out with the “tricked-out suite” which costs $A27,000.

It’s a lot of money when you consider the biggest fans of the franchise still live in their parents' basements. Yes, that was a stereotype but I meant nothing by it, it's all in good fun. Nerds’ retreat!

Maybe it’s not paying rent that means these Star Wars fans can afford the affluent holiday.

There does appear to be some incredible immersive activities.

There is an on-site hair and make-up staff, as well as a gift shop brimming with costumes, for customers who wish to go all out.

A tea towel at a regular gift shop costs about 30 bucks so I have a feeling I’d have to take out a loan to get a Darth Vader mug from the shop.

A visit to Galaxy's Edge, the Star Wars theme park, and a supper club performance with cameos from popular figures like Yoda are included in the two-night stay.

Guests can also participate in lightsaber training or take control of the bridge to repel an Imperial onslaught.

If you have a spare $27,000 lying around and love Star Wars then why not?

All I know is there should be a discount if you have to hang out with Jar Jar Binks.
