Star Wars hotel at Disney World to open in 2021. What you need to know about reservations


Chewie, we’re home … for the next two days, anyway.

Star Wars fans, start saving your credits for a new resort experience at Disney World in Orlando, reports Florida Today, which is a part of the USA TODAY Network. Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, a two-day, two-night completely immersive hotel, launches in 2021, but reservations will open later this year.

In a Disney blog post, Walt Disney Imagineering executive producer Ann Morrow said, “Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a completely new type of experience… You’re going to live onboard a star cruiser … and you can get wrapped up in the larger Star Wars story.”

On arrival at the resort, guests will enter a launch pod that will simulate the experience of blasting off into space. When the pod doors open, guests will find themselves immersed “in a galaxy far, far away” aboard a star cruiser named the Halcyon.

They’ll also go on an excursion to the Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, the remote “planet” that comprises Disney Hollywood Studios’ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

“If you’re a guest coming to Galactic Starcruiser,” Morrow said, “you’re going to be part of a story and live out your own ‘Star Wars’ experience.”

Disney has not announced pricing details for the resort yet.
