I guess there is a limit to how much money you can shake out of the pockets of Star Wars fans:

Disney bet big that superfans would pay thousands of dollars to spend two days in the ultimate Star Wars experience. It’s going the way of the Death Star.

Part hotel, part immersive role-playing experience, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will close in September, less than two years after opening with great fanfare. The hotel transports visitors to the world of the popular film franchise over two nights. Guest cabins resemble a spaceship, with views of outer space projected on screens designed to mimic windows.

Stays in the Starcruiser don’t come cheap: A family of four can expect to spend $6,000 and up, depending on the type of cabin chosen and visit dates. Travel agents and industry insiders say the high price contributed to gradually weakening demand after the property opened.

6 grand! Starting at! (For reference, just for fun I decided to check the room rates at the Four Seasons resort in Maui where they filmed the first season of The White Lotus. A month from now you could book a deluxe room for the weekend for less than half the cost. I dunno, if I had a five-figure vacation budget burning a hole in my pocket I think I’d go for something like that, or in a nice hotel in a major world center as opposed to Orlando, something like that there.)

Anyway, if your priorities and interests and savings account differ substantially from mine, apparently you need to act now.
