If anyone can do the Star Wars empire justice, it’s Disney. It is proving it time and time again, and not just based on the absolutely stunning images of the new Star Wars land, named Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. It gets even better.
Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, just confirmed at the 2017 D23 Expo that a Star Wars-inspired resort will debut as part of the new “Disney 360” vacation concept. Disney has plans to create “the most experiential concept ever in an immersive Star Wars-themed hotel at Walt Disney World Resort.” The hotel will be dedicated entirely to the world(s) of Star Wars, where “luxury resort meets a multiday adventure in a galaxy far, far away.”
“It’s unlike anything that exists today,” said Chapek. “From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story. You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100 percent immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.”
