Were were on one of the Pixar cruises last month and when I heard about Disney buying LucasFilms, I was thinking the EXACT SAME THING- we need a Star Wars themed cruise!!!

That would be a great idea!

This doesn't matter now that Disney owns Star Wars, but how did MGM have that star wars attraction before? It makes no difference now but still just wondering.

They licensed the rights.

It'd be nice to see a few SW charactars incorporated in the regular itineraries for photo ops.

Given how popular the Star Wars weekends are at WDW I am sure you can count on them doing something.

My son would attempt cartwheels if he could get a pic with Darth Vader!

I think a Star Wars cruise would be awesome! There could be a Star Wars night, instead of pirate!

I'd like it but DW is afraid of the costumes that would be around. Let's face it, having been to conventions, there are a lot of broken mirrors out there. I speaking of the ones that tell the 60 year old (yes I've seen this) that they look good in the Slave costume or that a cross between Solo and Tom Seleck is a great thing.

Apologize if this has already been posted, I haven't read the whole thread, but I was thinking it would be great if DCL, in recognition of Star Wars becoming part of the Disney family, would show some Star Wars movies on the cruise ships over the next few months. Okay, specifically, on the December 8, 2012 Fantasy cruise that I will be on!! I would LOVE to see the original Star Wars on the big screen on the cruise ship!!

Yeah, my family would freak out as well. My son can't get enough of jedi training and the Star Wars ride at Hollywood studios. There are enough star wars fans out there to fill up more than once ship. Star wars weekends at Disney are a big attraction.

Now that Disney owns Star Wars, hopefully they'll add a little bit. At least a movie or two to start off.
