Disney Parks Releases New Looks at Star Wars Immersive Hotel and More

At the recent D23 event in Japan, Disney Parks presented new information on some of their upcoming uses of Star Wars in the theme parks around the work. Today the Disney Parks Blog has shared some of those updates with those of us who could not attend the event.


Most of the new information is updated concept art for the fully immersive Star Wars hotel being planned to go next to Disney Hollywood Studios in Orlando. This announcement caused quite a bit of excitement at last years event as it offers a almost Westworld-like experience (hopefully minus the murderous robots) for Star Wars fans to engage in.


The concept will seemingly act almost like a multi-day cruise, with guest checking in to a “starship” for a multi-day voyage.


From Disney Parks Blog:

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.


DPB also released 3 new “Action” concept pieces that give a bit of the look and feel of the resort.




Also, on a more minor note, Disney gave us a quick behind the scenes look at the full scale X-Wing that will be featured in one of the two Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lands in either Anaheim or Orlando. From the picture it looks like either this land will be placed in the timeline before The Last Jedi or Poe at some point will rebuild his custom Black X-Wing. Either way nice to know that sleek, radar evading, beauty isn’t gone forever.

    The more I hear about the hotel the more I like the idea behind it.
    & having it so everyone has the same start date for a multi day stay really adds to the shared experience for all the guests.

      Agreed. It’s like the Love Boat or Fantasy Island, but with more SW. (Oops…I just dated myself…)

    I think I am alone in this but I really don’t like Poe’s X-Wing. Like I get that it’s because JJ wanted it a different color so people will be able differentiate Poe on screen from the other X-Wings, just completely unnecessary.

      I wasn’t over-fond of it. But that’s probably because I’m not too keen on the changes made to the X-wing design- just doesn’t look as cool as the original ship design.

    For me the new time period has been utterly ruined. I can’t look at the first order stormtroopers or the new x-wings and not feel terribly sad. It sucks Disney has chosen to use this as the “feel” for the park and this hotel and not the OT … happiness is a critical part of nostalgia and all I see with the new stuff now is troopers with space axes and hear Phasma’s stupid voice doing nothing …no happiness … I will still go of course but it will be bittersweet for me.
    Hopefully the life-size falcon will cure it all.

    I really don’t think they need to have the park fit into a specific timeline. I’m sure that’s the direction they’ll take, but I would like to see ships and themes from all trilogies.
