According to the news of the tourism news center, the news source of the tourism sector, Disney World, which announced that it will close the Star Wars-themed Galactic Starcruiser hotel, which opened its doors in March 2022 and started to host its guests by opening its doors in March 2022, where a two-night stay costs approximately 5,000 dollars, and that Starcruiser will host its last guests between September 28-30, said in the announcement published on its website: "We are proud of all the actors and dreamers who brought Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser to life.

The Star Wars Galatic Starcruiser luxury hotel, which first welcomed guests in March 2022, featured elaborate décor, interactive events, themed dining and live entertainment. In March, the company announced that it would be making changes to the hotel's accommodation rates, but this will no longer be possible, as the cost of accommodation for both tourists and locals was a bit steep. On or after September 30, the company will contact anyone with a reservation, and will pause new bookings until May 26 while it deals with affected guests.
As 2023 continues to be a challenging year for Disney World, CEO Bob Iger announced that in addition to closing Galactic Starcruiser, the company's $1 billion construction plan next to the Florida theme park has been halted.
