A new Star Wars resort was announced last summer. We weren’t told too much about it other than some conceptual ideas. Well, today at D23 Expo Japan, we learned some new details about this new resort.
First, we found out where it will be located. After about 8 months of internet rumors, speculation, and just plain guessing, it was revealed today that the new resort will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
More conceptual details were also released, as provided in the Disney Parks Blog:
This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with complete immersion into an authentic Star Warsstory. 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.
We still don’t have any word on an opening date for the resort. We do know, however, that we can anticipate seeing the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge sometime in 2019.
