    Are there plans to give people who are staying at the Galactic Starcruiser the new MagicBand+ instead of the regular MagicBand? I'm staying there at the end of September, and will I need to have the new MagicBand+ to play Batuu Bounty Hunters

    Good Passage, Christopher! You have truly found your fellow Jedi here at planDisney. The Force is strong with you!

    It sounds like you'll be visiting a galaxy far, far away while traveling on board the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser! Whether you decide to follow the path of the Resistance, train as a Jedi, or help the First Order rise to power, you'll be able to become the main character in your own Star Wars story. I was able to sail on the Halcyon starcruiser a few months ago and I can tell you that you're truly in for an out-of-this-world experience!

    Christopher, I see you're curious to know about the MagicBands that you'll receive and be using during your voyage. I spoke with a Cast Member regarding your inquiry (don't worry, they're part of the Resistance!) and they let me know that, at this time, Passengers will be given an exclusive MagicBand upon boarding, courtesy of Chandrila Star Line. In fact, this is my favorite souvenir that I brought home with me after my intergalactic travels on the Halcyon starcruiser! However, it appears that it currently won't be a MagicBand+ model. But never fear! Obi-Wan Kenobi isn't your only hope. I have a few ideas that I think can help!

    First, as current offerings at Walt Disney World Resort can sometimes shift and change, I would suggest that you reach out to your Galactic Starcruiser Specialist at (407) 939-1800 as your trip gets closer if you have more specific questions about using a MagicBand on the ship. They will be able to give you the best, most up-to-date information on what you can expect aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

    Second, if you decide to use the MagicBand that you receive on board during your experience on the ship and on your excursion to Batuu, I don't think you'll miss out on any of the fun. Passengers on the Halcyon starcruiser will use the Play Disney Parks app on their datapad (also known as a "phone" on your home planet of Earth) throughout their voyage. This will allow you to receive important communications, complete challenges, and accept missions both on the ship and on Batuu. The activities that you'll be involved in with the Play Disney Parks app during your excursion to Batuu will continue to follow you throughout your Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser experience once you're back on the Halcyon starcruiser!

    I have a few more tips for you as you Prepare for Launch!
    • If you want to make the most out of your own Star Wars story, try wearing some fun accessories or clothing options to help you stand out! This will allow Crew Members to easily identify you, making your experience more personal and more fun.
    • Tour the ship and be sure to check out the Sublight Lounge and the Climate Simulator throughout your journey!
    • Spend some of your extra time in the Atrium. You'll meet curious characters, have intriguing conversations, and you might even be asked to join a secret mission or two.
    • Don't wait for your story to come to you! When in doubt, introduce yourself. Even just asking a character, "How can I help?" could open a whole new world of possibilities.
    • You and the other Passengers in your travel party will be able to follow your own paths! This is your chance to become the hero of your story or indulge in your dark side.
    As they say on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, "Ta'bu e tay!" Cherish the moment!

    Clear Skies!
