The Star Wars-themed hotel that’s coming to Disney World in Florida will connect directly to the Galaxy’s Edge expansion at Hollywood Studios, Disney announced today at D23 Expo Japan. The fully-immersive hotel sounds like… A lot.
From the moment guests arrive at the hotel, [Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman Bob] Chapek said, their journey through space will begin as everyone boards a starship and departs together for a multi-day Star Wars adventure. An opening date for the new hotel has not yet been announced. But it can’t come too soon — we’re ready to vacation in a galaxy far, far away.
Still, no ETA on the hotel, though.
Also revealed was a look at the “handcrafted toys” that will be offered at a Toydarian’s street market in Galaxy’s Edge.
Galaxy’s Edge parks at Disney World and Disneyland are expected to debut in 2019.
