Walt Disney World has unveiled two new glimpses inside its planned Star Wars-themed resort hotel.
The concept art is showcased in a pair of brief videos. The first depicts attendees gazing through a window into space, with one of the franchise’s Corvette ships flying overhead. The initial announcement promised immersive experiences, which seem to include a view into space from anywhere in the resort. Guests will be encouraged to dress in Star Wars garb for the full experience, participating as a “resident of the galaxy.”
The second video piece of concept art shows what looks to be one of the hotel’s rooms, one specifically for kids. The window offers a view of a planet from orbit, with other planets in the background. The room also has bunks that resemble barracks seen in the Star Wars films and animated series.
The resort, which will be connected to the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Los Angeles, is just one of the many Star Wars-inspired pieces set to debut at Disney parks in the coming years. Galaxy’s Edge is planned to open in 2019, and will debut first at the Disneyland Resort and later at Walt Disney World.
Promised features include the ability to take the Millennium Falcon for a joyride, drink Blue Milk at the Cantina, and interact with iconic Star Wars characters. And it all takes place on the planet Batuu, an outpost on the edge of the galaxy. Diseny describes the locale as a “convenient safe haven for those intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order.”
