Last summer at D23 Expo 2017, it was announced that a new Star Wars themed immersive hotel would be built at Walt Disney World. Tonight at D23 Expo Japan 2018, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek revealed more information surrounded this project.
The new hotel will be connected to Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
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.
