The brand-new “Star Wars” movie comes to theaters in less than two weeks. But that’s not all Star Wars fans are buzzing about. The rumors are true: An immersive Star Wars hotel is coming to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
Walt Disney Parks & Resorts chairman Bob Chapek confirmed the hotel at the D23 Expo last summer while giving fans a sneak peek of what to expect at this one-of-a-kind resort.
“I am thrilled to confirm that we are working on our most experiential concept ever,” Chapek shared with attendees. “It combines a luxury resort with an immersion in an authentic ‘Star Wars’ environment.”
While we don’t yet know when the hotel will open, here’s everything else we know so far.
Rooms Will Have A View Of The Galaxy From Windows
The hotel will include adventurous amenities fit for a galaxy far far away. According to Chapek, guests will become active citizens of Lucas’s world from the films.
“It is 100 percent immersive and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits,” he told fans.
Fluffy robes may be nice but at this hotel, guests will be able to dress up in Star Wars costumes. No word on whether rooms come with light sabers. Still, it’s safe to say that Star Wars fans are pumped.
This other-worldly experience is luxurious. The hotel is likely $900 to $1,000 per guest. But can you really put a price on experiencing the world of Jedi, droids and light sabers?
(Speaking of light sabers, did you hear that Princes William and Harry will be making a cameo in the new Star Wars film? Apparently they’ll be in costume as Stormtroopers, but still, keep an eye out for their scene!)
Plus, accommodations make guests feel like they’re on a space ship.
Guests Participate In Stories Throughout Their Stay
Chapek also shared more details on attractions coming to Disney parks. He revealed the name for the highly anticipated Star Wars expansions, The Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
The new theme park comes in 2019. The hotel will likely follow, but Disney didn’t announce an opening date yet. Take a peek at the new Star Wars park and get excited!
