An immersive Star Wars themed hotel is set to open in 2019 as part of the expansion of Disneyland resorts in Florida and Anaheim. The ‘starship’ hotels, named Galaxy’s Edge, were announced at Disney’s D23 Expo.
“It’s unlike anything that exists today,” said Walt Disney’s resorts chairman Bob Chapek. “From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire.”
Guests will interact with characters, enter storylines and go on adventures and be able to ‘explore the galaxy’ at will. They will also be able to pilot the Millennium Falcon and join battles.
“It will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits,” said Chapek.
