Star Wars Fans everywhere were beyond thrilled when Disney confirmed a new Star Wars-themed Resort coming to Disney World at this year’s D23 Expo. The first details about the new fully-immersive resort are starting to emerge thanks to the folks over at The Disney Blog.
Each guest of the resort will have the option of going on a “mission.” The mission will be carried out both while you are in the resort and while you are in the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. How well you do on the mission will determine the reputation you receive while you are at the resort as well as in the Park. Multi-day stays will be required at the resort so guests can have a chance to carry out their missions and enjoy the parks.
Plans call for guests to view the resort as a “flying spaceship resort” instead of your typical “terrestrial hotel” found on Earth. When a guest looks out of their window at the resort will be treated to views of a “far off alien planet.” Guests will have their own droid right by their bed to help with completing their missions.
The concept art released by Disney of an “active role play room” shows where guests will carry out missions of like flying a starship into a space battle with the First Order.
As one would imagine, the lounge and bar area will be uniquely themed as well. As you can see in the concept art below, the lounge/bar area looks over another alien planet. If you take a closer look, you will also be able to see Naboo on one of the monitors. Naboo is one of the destinations from Star Tours.
Now one of the questions that everyone has been asking: “What’s it going to cost me?” Well, have you ever been on a Disney Cruise? Because you are looking at prices similar tho those. Projections are for the first guest to cost $1300 while any additional guests would be $400 per guest. These prices are for a two night stay.
Reports indicate that the new resort will be located next to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge while not inside the actual Park. Supposedly, Hollywood Studios will have a new entrance built while the old entrance will be the entrance to the new Star Wars Resort.
As The Disney Blog points out, this is going to be a massive project for even Disney to undertake. There are so many moving parts involved in the project it will be interesting to see how it all turns out. Several reports indicate that the new restaurant going into Mission: SPACE will be a way for Disney to research a way they can “convincingly transport guests into space for a unique experience. It is also a way Disney can experiment with new technology that will be used in the resort.
