    Bob Chapek announced plans for a Star Wars themed resort that will bring immersion to a new level. Each window in the resort will be looking out into space.

    Last summer, we announced plans for an immersive Star Wars-inspired resort to be built at Walt Disney World Resort. Tonight we’re happy to share more details on what this thrilling new resort, which will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, will be like.

    This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with complete immersion into an authentic Star Warsstory. 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.

    At the resort, guests immediately become active citizens of the galaxy and can dress up in the proper attire. Every resort window will also have a view into space. The opportunity for immersion at this resort will also stand out among all Disney resorts around the globe, as it will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a total Star Wars experience.

    And I think Disney just found a way to make me spend "real money" (as opposed to DVC points) on accommodations at WDW for at least one more night! I have three nephews and a brother in law that will be thrilled by this!

    I'm excited for this and I'm not even a huge Star Wars fan. Starting the savings fund.

    I think this is great. The husband and daughter want to spend the time there and I will camp at DVC getting the solo trip I've always dreamed of. Win-win, except for wallet. That will be empty.

    I'm hoping this is the kick in the groin to get JK Rowling to finally sign off on this idea. You can feel the shudders from Universal execs with all these WDW announcements. :teeth:

    Don't expect to stay here for just one night. They said multi day experiences. Going to be very unique and will have to wait for more information.

    I believe this will be like a land based cruise. You will be (sequestered) in the resort for 2+ nights.

    It certainly breaks the immersion if you leave the experience to go to Epcot, for example.

    It's location is immaterial, I believe, because I think you are locked in for the (short) duration of your stay.

    I can't imagine what they will have to charge for this to prevent it from having a 5 year waiting list to get a room.

    So, imagine this being located right by Star Wars land. You board this ship and for 1-2 days you are "traveling" to Galaxy's Edge all the while being immersed in a story. At the end of that time you arrive at Galaxy's Edge and exit the ship directly into the land with a mission to complete the story. This could be so cool!
