    When can I make reservation for the Galactic Star Cruiser and Disney World? I checked, and I can only pick dates up to 12/31/22. Can I call and make them for March 2023, or when can I do that?

    Hi Miguel! Welcome to planDisney!

    It is never too early to start planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Or, in your case, a flight on the Halcyon starcruiser! It sounds like you are planning the ultimate year visiting Walt Disney World. Although I have not had the chance to experience it myself, I have heard firsthand from my fellow planDisney panelists about the immersive journey on the Galactic Starcruiser. If you are even the slightest Star Wars fan, this experience is completely worth it.

    Currently, vacation packages and the two-night adventure at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser are only being offered until the end of the 2022 calendar year. Historically, Walt Disney World will release the following year’s packages sometime at the beginning of the summer, possibly in the June timeframe. Since this is the debut year of the Starcruiser, there is no way to pinpoint when 2023 dates will be released. My best guess is it will be around the same time as the rest of the vacation packages.

    You do have the option to book a room-only reservation currently, excluding a stay on the Galactic Starcruiser. Disney allows reservations up to 499 days in advance of your visit. You will need to call Walt Disney World directly and speak to a friendly Cast Member for assistance. If you do book your room ahead of time, you can call back once vacation packages are released and have a Cast Member assist you in changing your current booking. Doing this will lock in your reservation to the resort and help you plan the rest of your stay knowing you have your room confirmed. 

    Miguel, I'm so happy that traditional meet and greets have made a comeback to the Walt Disney World Resort! Being able to interact closely and hug your favorite characters is a luxury that I think we all missed. Character interactions are a big part of the Galactic Starcruiser so this should only enhance the experience even more!

    Best of luck booking your Walt Disney World 2023 vacations when they become available. I hope you have a magical stay!

    Happy planning!
