Although this is usually a big deal for fans of Star wars, the Galactic Starcruiser is empty on these dates.

We have covered the thoughts and experiences of customers on this new service, many of them confused and frustrated with it. Many claim that paying up to $ 20 to skip the line in one ride isn’t worth it and is an insane amount of money to pay. Others are even wondering if Disney Genie is showing bogus wait times in order to get more people to buy it. For many guests, however, the service works and is a perfect replacement for the old FastPass + system that Disney World had.
