Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is going to be a premium experience, which means that the best of the best will be hired as the crew. When something new and exciting is about to open, Disney will often put out the call to current Cast Members before hiring outside. It’s always fun to see the reactions when someone learns that they have been hired for a coveted new position. Here’s the information from Disney Parks Blog. (Photos below courtesy Disney.)
Assembling the Crew That’s Ready to Host Passengers on Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser
by Brie Devore, Manager, Communications Walt Disney World Resort
Can you feel it? There’s an energy buzzing across Walt Disney World Resort this month, as several cast members started receiving much-anticipated emails, phone calls and even pop-in surprises. While these cast members have been making magic every day in a variety of roles, they’ve also raised their hands for the opportunity to push the limits of storytelling, to exceed the fundamental standards of guest service and help passengers live out their Star Wars adventure with the opening of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.
With its first voyage taking off March 1, 2022, this 2-night, immersive journey is now available for booking. And while guests start planning and packing (think of all the creative costume options!), this special opening team is already joining forces with those who have been working behind the scenes to bring this entirely new vacation experience to life – with colorful cuisine, amazing activities and themed accommodations, combined with superb service and attention to detail. After all, while passengers travel aboard the Halcyon starcruiser, what’s a ship without an amazing crew and dedicated leaders?
The hand-selected leadership team for this experience received their calls as well and will be boarding soon, readying the vessel and crew for their next uncharted adventures. This special team now proudly displays the insignia of Chandrila Star Line—the incomparable interplanetary travel group which the Halcyon starcruiser belongs to—as part of their daily wardrobe. This prestigious symbol serves as a reminder of their commitment to providing the finest service in the galaxy, and you can be sure that the leaders wearing this coveted badge of honor will deliver the finest service as stewards of Chandrila Star Line.
No matter the crew member you meet, every one of these individuals are about to step aboard into a transformative training experience where they will learn the history and traditions of the Halcyon starcruiser, elevate their service to new levels and prepare to step into roles that will bring this journey to life every day.
With more surprise notifications to come and lots of memorable moments for this opening team, this is just the start of the crew for this experience where it will be your journey, honored.
