Location Confirmed for Disney World’s Star Wars Hotel

We’ve known for some time that the immersive Star Wars Resort is going to be — according to Disney — “seamlessly connected” to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios, which is slated to open in late fall 2019.

The location — currently under development — will offer an experience unlike any other Disney destination anywhere. Guests will board a starship “that comes alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during their voyage through the galaxy.” It will also come alive by way of its setting, with every cabin window offering views of space.

This “multi-day adventure” will also give guests the chance to become residents of the Galaxy, as dressing in Star Wars attire will be welcome!

Disney World’s Star Wars Hotel Details


  1. Essie says

    I am soooo curious to know what this will cost. Also, is this the start of expensive, fully immersive, themed hotels of the future?

  2. Carole Nelson says

    I would love to stay at the new Star Wars Hotel. However, if it is like the Grand Floridian or Animal Kingdom it is not in my budget. I am just so happy I can afford an annual pass.

  3. DebC says

    It will be more than the GF or any of the deluxe resorts. Since it is supposed to connected to the theme park and you are supposed to be immersed in the theme, it will cost you your first born.

  4. Nikki says

    As passholders we visit Disney often but stay at moderate resorts so we can stay longer. I hope the cost of this will not be out of touch for normal people.

  5. Ali says

    1) to answer other people’s questions, previous press releases said it would be $1000/room/night with a 2 night stay and 2 people required for the room… I think.

    2) any chance of this being shown on a map? I just can’t visualize where you mean…!

  6. Kelly Kiefer says

    Star Wars attire will be welcome? At the high prices I can only imagine this will be, I would think that Disney could provide an assortment of some basic costuming. Jedi robes, toy light sabers…

  7. Kelley Weir says

    I wonder if there are plans to make part of this new resort, DVC villas and studios….

  8. Amanda says

    My family loves Star Wars but my husband lives and breaths Star Wars. Would love to experience this for him, but like everyone else I have to wonder if it is in reach for the average family?

  9. Summer says

    I started saving already. I can’t wait. 3days 2 nites should b enough to experience this once in a lifetime trip.

  10. Tamera says

    Such a shame. My son luvs Star Wars. But, as stated earlier, hotel rate is way out of our league. Won’t be able to experience this on a $70,000/yr salary :-(
