Star Wars Resort at Walt Disney World Promises to be 'Unlike Anything That Exists Today'

inline imageDuring D23 Expo Japan, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, shared some information on the highly anticipated new Star Wars Inspired resort to be built at Walt Disney World.

The new resort will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxys Edge at Disneys 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: Galaxys Edge at Disneys Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a total Star Wars experience."

If the rumoured cost is anything to go on, it would need to be ridiculously good.

About $600 for 2 days right? I'd pay that lol for a completely immersive thing. Secret Cinemas are about 75 for a few hours.

'The new resort will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxys Edge at Disneys Hollywood Studios.'

So it's own entrance straight into SW land I'm guessing. Get your papers stamped by stormtroopers at the hotel and get on some sort of ride to Galaxy's edge a bit like the Hogwarts express?

Completely speculative, but what I saw suggested more like $1000 per person

If it is like Secret Cinema, it could be incredible. I would love it, but not sure my son would.

I saw a very early rumour that the max stay in this hotel will be for 5/7 nights (thats the total ammount the hotels "story engine" will permit. Im not sure if this will change later, I'm sure it would be to allow more people to experiace it when it opens).

I calculated the price to be $2000-$2500 per person, as much as a fan I am, I dont think I'd want to stay here. I dont like the idea of the space view (I get it and why its important for the emersion) but it looks and sounds like, theyll be no natural sunlight, I wont be able to open a window or look outside on to the land/lake. Its a lot of money and I know people who will pay this and more, but what I value important to my stay looks to be overlooked for this hotel. I know Im not going to be locked in my room all day, I'm barley in my room as it is, but I suppose its the freedom of opening a window or being able to look outside and even go outside and stand on the balcony while I wait for my better half.

as I mentioned this was a very early rumor/speculation and could very well change, which could change my mind completely. I guess we'll just have to wait and see

Almost no matter what they charge its probably going to be sold out for years, so many SW fans with money who will be obsessed with going. Dont know why universal never tried this with Harry potter, printing money imo

I love Star Wars and although this seems on the surface like an amazing thing I dont actually want to do it. The thought of staying in a hotel for 2 days straight pretending Im on a space ship just doesnt do it for me. Id rather be out in the park.
