Update on the Star Wars Immersive Resort Planned for Walt Disney World Resort

Last summer, plans for a Star Wars-inspired destination at Walt Disney World Resort were unveiled at the D23 Expo.

Today we are happy to share the location of this exciting addition, which is currently under development on the south side of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, just east of World Drive. This location will allow the experience to be seamlessly connected to the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, enabling guests to fully immerse themselves in the story of Star Wars.

This experience stands out among all of our destinations around the globe. Families visiting this destination will board a starship that comes alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during their voyage through the galaxy – and every cabin window has views of space! Guests visiting the multi-day adventure will also be welcome to participate as a resident of the Galaxy by dressing in Star Wars-inspired attire.

Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog in the coming months for updates.


  • OMG! We truly are a Star Wars FANmily!!!! I’m saving every penny so I can take my family on late May 2020! My husband turns 50 on Nov 2019, our 25th wedding anniversary is on Dec 2019, my son turns 21 on April 2020, and I turn 50 on Aug 2020!!!!!! So we have more than enough reasons to celebrate all this important events with u guys!!!! Disneyworld will always be MY HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH!

  • Is there a timeline on when hotel reservations will be available?

  • My husband and I have a Norwegian cruise booked for November 2019. Hoping that the hotel/park will be open by then so we can stay/visit the day before our cruise. Is there anyway to subscribe for updates?

  • My aon and husband would flip if we were able to get a reservation… When can we make the deposit for this hotel? Usual timeline or different? Or do you have to pay in full for this experience up front? I need to know so i can start budgeting if up front payment is required. Any disney visa cardholder perks?

  • We just returned from our vacation at Disney World. We were in awe when we found out about this! My whole family cannot wait!! We’re planning to reserve for summer 2020. Keeping our eyes and ears open for any news.

  • When when….can’t wait my grown son and his 5 yr. old daughter are so excited about the up coming hotel and Star Wars land not to mention my other grandchildren and me of course. Will be there in spring of 2020.

  • Are the hotel and park opening at the same time? When will we be able to book the hotel?!?! The anticipation is torture!!! Don’t do this to me, Disney!!!

  • Will the resort and park open on the same day next fall?

  • Omgosh! Omgosh! How did I not know about this?!?! We are so super excited!! Can’t wait! How do I get on an emailing list for updates?

  • My grandsons are so excited to experience this great adventure. We can’t wait to know what the opening date will be!

  • Do you have an opening date for this new amazing hotel and when we will be able to reserve?

  • I hope they open this up for DVC points. My kids and I would go nuts. We love Star Wars and make it a big part of our annual Disney trips.

  • Rumored to be limited to a 2 night max stay. Running around $3,000.

  • When can we start putting down reservations for this resort?

  • I can’t wait to hear more about this fantastic new resort. It will be a good option to stay at when I next visit from Australia in 2021. Love Star Wars and Disney. A FANTASTIC combination.

  • When I read these reports, I start to tear up for real. This will be a lifelong dream come true! I’m seriously going to be crying tears of joy all day on my first visit.

  • My husband has stated, “We WILL go do this, right??” Oh yes. He’s Star Wars obsessed. We named our son Lucas! As much as I love Disney, he loves Star Wars that much more. I *think* we’ll be going. LOL 😉

  • SO. FLIPPING. EXCITED. (even though it probably won’t be ready for the Galaxy’s Edge opening in 2019)

    • We’re happy you’re excited, Matthew. We hope you love it.
