Star Wars fans will hardly be able to contain themselves with this news! A Star Wars hotel is coming to Walt Disney World Florida.
The announcement was made by Disney boss Bob Chapek to 7,000 excited Disney fans at their annual convention in Anaheim California. The hotel will complement the new Star Wars Land, below, being built at Disney in Orlando.
No date has been given for the opening of the hotel but the Star Wars Lands – there is also one being built in Anaheim – are expected to be completed in 2019.
He said: “Today, I am thrilled to confirm that we are working on our most experiential concept ever. It combines a luxury resort with an immersion in an authentic Star Wars environment.”
And this is how he described the new Star Wars-themed hotel: “From the second you leave earth, you will board a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you during the voyage on the galaxy that spans several days.
“You’ll immediately become an active citizen of the galaxy and live everything that that means including the opportunity, of course, to dress up in the proper attire. It is 100% immersive and the story will touch every single minute of your stay with us. And it culminates in a unique journey for every person who visits.”
He added that every room will make you feel as if you are in space. And here’s an idea off what a room will look like.
Mr Chapek also gave more details about the 14-acre Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge coming to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort in Southern California in 2019. Fans were shown new details about the two new signature attractions and experiences in the new, jaw-dropping, 14-acre lands, including character encounters with BB8, Chewbacca, Rex and Kylo Ren.
