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 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.

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.

Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future updates on this fascinating place!


  • So when you say “seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios” I really hope this means that when I leave the hotel to visit the park it is through a Star Tours shuttle type motion ride so it feels like we left the ship via shuttle and land on the planet. That would be awesome!

  • Oh my goodness! Can’t wait – this sounds truly out of this world. Already saving $$ – and hopefully DVC vacation points!!

  • So like the best of two worlds.

  • With the hotel being fully immersive, I highly doubt they are going to let non guests inside like all their other hotels. Otherwise the place would be PACKED with people who don’t want to spend the money to stay there but want to wander around for free.

  • any info on where the resort will be located? near DHS?

  • Is there a date/year on when the resort is scheduled to open?

  • What tier will this resort fall into? Value, Moderate, or Deluxe? Sounds like a deluxe resort to me- hope they have some affordable options for “budget-friendly” guests!

  • Will there be entertainment in the Hotel? Just going to the hotel will be a vacation it self.

    • We hope to have an update on everything this place has to offer soon. Stay tuned.
