So we’re getting an official-ish opening date of the Star Wars Hotel which will be called Star Wars: Galactic Star Cruiser. It’s will open its doors in Orlando sometime in 2021. See below for the rest of the scoop via Disney Parks Blog
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiserwill begin transporting you fromWalt Disney World Resortin Florida to a galaxy far, far away beginning in 2021, Walt Disney Imagineering announced tonight. This is a new type of immersive vacation that only Disney could create – a two-night, cruise-style itinerary where you’ll become the hero of your own adventure in an experience that surrounds you 24/7 inStar Warsstorytelling.
In a new artist concept rendering just released (above), you get a first look at what you’ll see when you arrive for yourStar Wars: Galactic Starcruiser vacation. The Galactic Starcruiser Terminal is where you’ll begin yourStar Warsexperience!
Whether you show up via personal vehicle, Disney transportation or by landspeeder, curb-side check-in prepares you to leave Earth behind, jump to lightspeed and begin yourStar Warsstory. From the Starcruiser Terminal, you will enter an exclusive launch pod for travel up to theHalcyon, your starcruiser in a galaxy far, far away. Through the pod’s viewports, it looks as though you are traveling through space to approach the massive ship that is much too large to land on any planet.
A “spaceport of call” to Black Spire Outpost is included in your itinerary, where special passenger transports take you to the planet Batuu (also known as the destination forStar Wars: Galaxy’s Edgeat Disney’s Hollywood Studios).
To get fromStar Wars: Galactic Starcruiser toStar Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and back, you’ll remain fully in-story as you step aboard the transport ships designed specifically for this new immersive experience, which you can see in the artist concept rendering above, released today. It will connect you directly to a spaceport at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, where the story you began in the starcruiser will continue and evolve while exploring the 14-acre land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
