Disney is selling a $5,000 (£4,100) Star Wars themed cocktail onboard its new cruise ship.
The franchise unveiled the Disney Wish liner back in February and has now revealed that aside from a 760ft long water ride attraction and six separate swimming pools, it’s also packing a cocktail menu that was seemingly priced up by someone living in a galaxy far, far away.
The eye-wateringly expensive tipple is called the Kaiburr Crystal and footage of the bev shared today (30 June) on Twitter reveals it’s served out of what appears to be BB-8’s square cousin.

When a handle on top of the device is twisted, three mechanical doors slowly open to reveal futuristic lights, lots of smoke and a cocktail that’s $5,000 but appears to be only the size of a shot glass.
According to Comic Book, staterooms aboard the Disney Wish start at $2,000 (£1,600) for two people, so it’s no wonder the Kaiburr Crystal’s price tag blew people’s minds.
Responding to a clip showcasing the cocktail on Twitter, one person wrote: “5000 for a little shot of a drink with a fog machine container is disgusting.”
Another added: “$5000?!?!? Is the alcohol the wine that Jesus converted from water??” while a third echoed: “For that price I better be able to freeze it and make a lightsaber.”
UNILAD has approached Disney for comment.
The Kaiburr Crystal is served in the Disney Wish’s Star Wars themed bar, which transports guests straight into the Star Wars universe.
Called the Hyperspace Lounge, the intergalactic space has been designed to look like a spacecraft plucked freshly from the mind of George Lucas, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint.
All cast members working in the Hyperspace Lounge will dress and act like they’re in a Star Wars movie, and guests will be made to feel as though they’re hyperdriving through galaxies as opposed to chugging along the coast of San Diego.
Towards the beginning of 2022, Disney shared a 3D tour of its new cruise ship, unveiling a grand atrium where guests will be greeted by a statue of Cinderella and a giant wishing star chandelier.
A Disney spokesperson said at the time: "We're taking fun in the sun to the next level on board the Disney Wish with a brand-new family water attraction and three themed districts that offer dedicated space for families, children and adults alike."
