Guests will soon be able to vacation in a galaxy far, far away.
According to a report from The Telegraph, Disney is developing a new Star Wars themed hotel. The luxury resort is being planned for Disney's upcoming Star Wars Land theme park set to open in 2019 at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Though full details on the potential hotel have not been revealed, rumors indicate that the resort is being designed to resemble the Millennium Falcon starship. Likewise, reports suggest that guests will be able to engage in special Star Wars story experiences, including interacting with characters from the films, dueling with lightsabers, and piloting spacecrafts. In addition, the experience might also include secret missions that will be assigned to guests to carry out both in the hotel and outside in the Star Wars theme park itself. Traditional amenities are also set to include a pool area, water park, and fitness center, along with a few appropriately Star Wars inspired locations and features, like a cantina for meals and droid butlers to serve food and drinks.
Bookings will be available for two-night stays with meals and access to the theme park included for an expected $900 to $1,000 per person. An exact opening date has not been announced for Star Wars Land yet, but the theme park will cover 14 acres at Disney World and is set to be completed sometime in 2019. A similar Star Wars theme park is also set to open at Disneyland in California, and both locations are rumored to include a life-size Millennium Falcon.
In addition to the new theme park and resort, Disney is gearing up to release Star Wars: The Last Jedi from writer/direct Rian Johnson on December 15. The film stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Mark Hamill.
