As you may know, at D23, Disney’s Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Bob Chapek, announced a plan for a Star Wars Themed Hotel. According to John Frost, from thedisneyblog.com, more details have emerged.
As a resort guest, you will have the option to go a mission. A dossier will tell you where to go, which characters you have to interact with to complete the mission. What happens at the hotel will impact your reputation in the park, and vice-versa. Multi-day stays will be required so you can participate in complicated missions, while still getting some time in at the theme parks.
New Details for Star Wars Themed Hotel
Although the quote above is nothing that we don’t know already, what followed the above quote is.
In addition to having “alien world” decor, your room will also feature your own droid on your bedside table. It seems that this droid may interact with you and possibly alert you of new missions, in addition to being your alarm clock. Furthermore, guests will have access to a Star Wars inspired wardrobe to allow guest to fully emerse themselves.
Will the Star Wars Themed Hotel have its own entrance to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?
It seems that way, Disney And More posted an article back in late June, before D23, with a site area outlined for a Star Wars Themed Hotel. Once of their reader’s Cleeve North was the greater of the image below.
This picture seems to corroborate John Frost’s comment
Once the new entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is complete, Disney will transition the old world drive entrance to become the new entryway for the hotel. The hotel itself will be adjacent to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, but not in it. Disney learned their lesson with the hotel in Disneyland Paris.
This proposed site seems to make sense. It is directly adjacent to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and seems to have enough land to build.
Rates for Star Wars Themed Hotel
Unconfirmed, it is being rumored that the hotel will have rates similar to Disney’s Cruise Line. These rates are anticipated to be based on double occupancy and additional fees for additional users in the room. John states prices will be fairly close to $1300 for two nights and an additional $400 per additional guest. Also, a two night minimum is rumored to be required to allow guest to experience longer missions. At this point, I would take that with a grain of salt, but be aware that prices will be “out of this world”.
What are your thoughts? What do you look forward to most about the hotel? Least? Let us know in the comments below.
