Episode Description

Brooke McDonald returns from a galaxy far, far away (@brookegmcdonald on IG and Twitter, a great follow for parks coverage!) to share everything you need to know about the new Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser. No spoilers except for some very general premises!

Brooke runs us through her experience with her family on the media voyage and helps us figure out what to consider if you're thinking of putting a crew together, especially if that crew includes younglings. We talk about what it's like to be part of a Star Wars experience, the food, the technology, and potential negatives to the experience.

Brooke's general overview of the experience

Brooke's tips for families
