The New Star Wars Hotel at Disney World | Everything We Know

Disney announced last summer that, in addition to the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, they would be developing a new Star Wars hotel nearby. At the time, all we got was some artist renderings and we were told that the new resort would be an immersive experience unlike any of the existing ones.

Last night, the Disney Parks Blog gave us a bit more detail as to what we can expect from the new Walt Disney World Star Wars hotel. Here is what they shared:

This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with complete immersion into an authentic Star Wars story. Guests’ journey through space will start when everyone departs together for a multiday Stars Wars adventure by boarding a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during a voyage through the galaxy.

At the resort, guests immediately become active citizens of the galaxy and can dress up in the proper attire. Every resort window will also have a view into space. The opportunity for immersion at this resort will also stand out among all Disney resorts around the globe, as it will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a total Star Wars experience.

As always, I will be adding updates here as more details about the new Disney World Star Wars hotel are released, so be sure to subscribe and stay tuned!

Update 2/22/18: Disney has released a few more looks into what the experience will be like at the new Disney World Star Wars Hotel. Check out the amazing concept art they just shared:

Update 5/30/18: We now know where the new Disney World Star Wars hotel will be located. According to the Disney Parks blog, the new hotel will be located on the south side of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, just east of World Drive. This places it next to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, allowing for a fully-immersive Star wars experience for guests.

Update 11/17/18: We found out at today’s Destination D event that the new resort will be a fully immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship. Here is some new concept art that was also shared at the event (source):

I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
