Disney's cruise ships get a Millennium Falcon-styled upgrade

If you want to go on a Star Wars cruise and feel like that lovable rogue Han Solo (or Chewbacca, if you prefer), you’ll have one more option that’ll take you to a galaxy far, far away. You know the drill.

Back in February, we told you the awesome news that Disney had announced that its highly popular Disney Cruise Line would introduce a "Star Wars Day" into its vacation packages starting in 2016. Now, it's revealed plans to tweak a ship called Disney Dream to include a brand-new Star Wars area for the young padawans (and discerning older people) of Disney's Oceaneer Club.

The cruise ship will feature a retooled area in the form of everyone’s favorite space smuggler’s ship, the Millennium Falcon -- a play zone inspired by the interior of Han Solo’s famous spaceship. Jedi apprentices will be able to sit in the cockpit and assist with navigation, pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy through hyperspace and jump to light speed. All in a day’s work.

The super-popular Jedi Training Academy experience will also be coming to the Disney Dream. The cruise ship will include games, activities and crafts, along with screenings of Disney XD's hit series Star Wars Rebels. The new features will debut on the Oct. 26 four-night voyage from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas and Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. Have a look at the cool concept art for the redesigned space:
