In addition to the Star Wars-themed Galaxy’s Edge attraction being built at the Disney theme parks, Walt Disney World is also developing an entire immersive hotel experience that will be connected to the attraction. For those of us who have always wanted to have a real life full-on immersive Star Wars experience, Disney is making that dream come true.
Today we have some cool concept art to show you giving us our first look at what the hotel experience will be like, and it looks freakin’ awesome! The official Disney Parks site says:
“The immerse experience offered at this hotel will stand out among all of our resorts around the globe. As you can see, families visiting this resort will board a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during their voyage through the galaxy – and every window has a view of space!
“The resort will also be seamlessly connected to the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a complete Star Wars experience. Guests visiting the resort will be welcome to participate as a resident of the galaxy by dressing in Star Wars-inspired attire.”
That sounds amazing! The attraction will also feature the Millennium Falcon and they will also be introducing a new planet in the Star Wars universe called Batuu. Here are the details on that:
“This remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel. Now home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space.
“It’s also a convenient safe haven for those intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order. While Batuu may be new to us, it is clearly already familiar to many characters from the Star Wars saga as a stepping off point for epic adventures.”
I can only imagine that staying in this Hotel is going to cost a ton of money and that it’s going to be hard to get a room in a timely manner. You’ll probably have to plan your trip out several months or maybe even years in advance. I really hope that I get a chance to check it out one day. It seems like it will be an incredibly cool experience!
