The undulating circus net makes every step an exaggerated, elongated, elastic bounce.
It’s the perfect gait to collide into and climb five giant transparent spheres suspended beneath the glass rooftop, 25 metres above the airy, white atrium.

Disney World’s “Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser” hotel to close1 minute read Preview Friday, May. 19, 2023
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — No more premium stay in a galaxy far, far away: Disney World's “Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser” hotel is making its last voyage at the end of September.
The hotel at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida opened in March 2022 and lets guests create and live out “Star Wars” immersive adventures. It costs nearly $5,000 per couple for a two-night stay.
“This premium, boutique experience gave us the opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale of 100 rooms, and as we prepare for its final voyage, we will take what we’ve learned to create future experiences that can reach more of our guests and fans,” a company spokesperson said in a statement Friday.
Disney said on the hotel's website that new bookings are “temporarily paused” but will resume May 26 for available voyages through Sept. 28-30.
