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.
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!
