    Lisa from PA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We want to visit Epcot after checking out of the Galactic Starcruiser next month and plan to purchase Genie+ and book VQ/ILL - will we be eligible to do that at 7 AM of our departure day? Are we considered onsite guests? Will there be cell service?

    Bright suns, Lisa. Welcome to planDisney!

    I also have a voyage on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser coming up and I know you must be as excited as I am. Are you ready to be immersed in the Star Wars universe? 

    I was very interested in the answer to your question, so I reached out to a Galactic Starcruiser Specialist for some clarity.  You can purchase Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lanes beginning at 7:00 a.m. if you have a valid theme park ticket and theme park reservation for EPCOT on the day of your disembarkation. You’ll be using your mobile device as your Datapad throughout your Halcyon voyage. My fellow panelists who have stayed on the Halcyon reported that they had no issues using their cell phones during their stay. 

    Before you begin your voyage on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, make sure you have the Play Disney Parks app downloaded on your mobile device! This is essential in using your mobile device as your Datapad so I recommend getting familiar with it before your visit. 

    Enjoy your visit to the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, Lisa. You can find me here at planDisney if you have any future planning questions! 

    May the Force be with you
