    Hello! We are staying at the Galactic StarCruiser, which has set check in and check out times. If my flight arrives well before the 1:00 pm check in time, is there a lounge or something to wait in at the Galactic StarCruiser before checking in?

    Good Passage, Kathleen! You have truly found your fellow Jedi here at planDisney. Thankfully, Obi-Wan Kenobi isn't your only hope – I'm here to help!

    Soon you'll be traveling to a galaxy far, far away as you embark on your interstellar voyage on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser! My husband and I were fortunate enough to travel on the Halcyon starcruiser last year and it's one of our absolute favorite experiences. As you get ready for your upcoming trip, be sure that you check out the Prepare for Launch page to help you decide on what to wear, a packing list, and transportation advice!

    Kathleen, I understand that your flight may be arriving earlier in the day and you're hoping to wait in the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser before your voyage. Unfortunately, access to the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Terminal won't begin until 1:00 PM. As Crew Members get everything ready for your adventure, it's important that they have ample time to prepare! With that being said, my best recommendation would be to spend a little time in Disney Springs prior to your trip. You could pick up some cookies and the phenomenal cold brew coffee at Gideon's Bakehouse, grab lunch at D-Luxe Burger, or snag a few cool tees from UNIQLO – all of which would be a really fun way to spend your day before your Halcyon starcruiser experience!

    I have a few more recommendations for your voyage! Be sure to spend a little time exploring the Halcyon starcruiser on your arrival day. If you have the chance to get a tour of the ship, I'd suggest that you take it! Enjoy the Climate Simulator and Sublight Lounge during your experience. And don't wait for your story to come to you! Introduce yourself to the Crew Members or ask the characters, "How can I help?" You never know how your story may unfold...

    If you have any other questions, feel free to write to us again or reach out to your Galactic Starcruiser Specialist at (407) 939-1800. And may the Force be with you!

    Clear Skies!

Meet the Panelist: Michelle, Pennsylvania

Hello from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, also known as Pittsburgh! My husband and I live in a little town that we affectionately call Main Street, U.S.A. where we often find ourselves seeking out ice cream, finding new adventures, and having lightsaber battles in our backyard. While we love to travel to galaxies far, far away, we consider Walt Disney World Resort our second home and I can't wait to help you add even more magic to your Disney vacations!
