Earlier I wrote about the high cost of attending a new Star Wars-themed hotel at Disney World in Florida. Well, the experiment has run its course and the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser experience will officially end September 30, 2023. You still have time to blow a bundle of money on this should that be your thing.

Who knew that there was a limited number of American families willing to pay up to $6,000 for an immersive Star Wars experience? Of course, it seemed a little extreme from day one.

I remember attending the Star Trek experience in Las Vegas at the Hilton hotel many years ago. The show was less than an hour, but it was also an immersive experience that ended with dinner at Quark’s Bar. You could have fund without taking a second mortgage on the house.

Sometimes simple can be better.

Note: I would not be surprised to see a version of this Star Wars hotel opens in Saudi Arabia or Dubai in the near future. They seem like a more appropriate locations for an over-the-top hotel bill.
