    Hi Melanie! My friends and I are excited to board the Halcyon for my birthday trip soon! Any tips that we should keep in mind? And what should we be sure not to miss? We’ve been to Batuu many times… not sure how much time we should plan to spend there!

    Hello there, JoAnna!

    My advice is to cherish the moment, or as they say in Anzellan, "TA' BU E TAY!" I've never felt as much joy, excitement, and the force (!) as I did during my Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser voyage with my Padawan sister, resistance fighter brother-in-law, and Jedi Brewmaster husband. I'm so excited about your upcoming journey. Besides cherishing every moment, I suggest you take advantage of every moment. 

    Before you arrive, download the Star Wars: Datapad on Play Disney Parks Mobile App. My party arrived at the starcruiser Terminal at 11:30 am to squeeze as much magic into our voyage as possible. Although we waited in line before boarding began at 1:00 pm, we enjoyed snapping photos by the epic entryway and getting to know our fellow travelers and their backstories. Plus, being one of the first boarding groups gave us time to have a relaxing buffet lunch and explore the ship before we started getting into trouble. I'm the type who usually likes to follow the rules, but in this scenario, you are encouraged to press buttons, open locked doors, and talk to strangers. 

    Whatever you do, don't miss the highlighted events in your Star Wars: Datapad itinerary of events- you'll find that knowing your way around the Halcyon will come in handy. If you are ever looking for something to do, I suggest you spend time in the Atrium. You never know who you'll meet. I'd also recommend talking to D3-09, your in-room droid! She may have advice about making the most of your journey and who you should talk to; she may even be willing to tell you a bedtime story. 

    Whether or not you're a pro bounty hunter in Batuu, the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser voyage offers exciting transport to Batuu, new missions, and communications from friends via your Star Wars: Datapad. Your travels to Batuu will ultimately help determine your story when you return to the ship. Don't forget to take advantage of your complimentary Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run Lightning Lanes. 

    Our force-sensitive group enjoyed our Captian's Table experience, an Additional Activity aboard the ship you could book through one of the incredible Galactic Starcruiser Specialists at (407) 939-1800. If it's not available when you first book the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, try calling back again another day. Someone's plans changed on our journey, and that's how we could snag a reservation. 

    I feel your midi-chlorian count will be higher than the average traveler's. Like C-3PO, I'd love to help answer any other questions you may have. 

    May the spires keep you!
