Disney has announced the prices for their highly-anticipated Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser immersive experience hotel-thingy (honestly, that’s the best way I can describe it), and folks, I hope you’re sitting down because these numbers are a doozy.

Now, to be fair to the Mouse House, it is a fully immersive/all-inclusive experience:
