Exciting news for Star Wars fans! A new permit has been filed for the new Star Wars Hotel at Walt Disney World Resort. The new permit is filed for “Project H: Installation of Show Set Elements.” This permit doesn’t tell us exactly what elements are being installed at the new hotel, but because we know this will be a highly immersive experience at Walt Disney World Resort, there is no doubt that the show set elements will be out of this galaxy!
On Disney’s website they explain, “To get from Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and back, you’ll remain fully in-story as you step aboard the transport ships designed specifically for this new immersive experience, which you can see in the artist concept rendering above, released today. It will connect you directly to a spaceport at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, where the story you began in the star cruiser will continue and evolve while exploring the 14-acre land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.”
Special access will be given to guests staying at the hotel with themed transport ships that will take guests to Batuu at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during “spaceport of call.” This will be part of the immersive space-themed stay at the hotel as it will be included on each guests’ itinerary during their visit.
Disney also describes, “Whether you show up via personal vehicle, Disney transportation or by landspeeder, curb-side check-in prepares you to leave Earth behind, jump to lightspeed and begin your Star Wars story. From the Starcruiser Terminal, you will enter an exclusive launch pod for travel up to the Halcyon, your starcruiser in a galaxy far, far away. Through the pod’s viewports, it looks as though you are traveling through space to approach the massive ship that is much too large to land on any planet.”
At the end of last year it was announced that the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will open in 2021. This past February it was announced that Disney would start taking reservations at the end of 2020. As soon as reservations open up we will be sure to let you know!
