Update on the Themed Star Wars Resort Planned for Walt Disney World

We previously announced the exciting news that a new Star Wars themed resort would be coming to Walt Disney World.  This was first announced last summer at the D23 Expo.  Disney Parks Blog provided more details about this resort that we are happy to share with all of you Star Wars fans out there.  The location has been made official and the area is currently under development.  The resort will be located on the south side of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which will put it just east of World Drive.  The proximity to Disney’s Hollywood Studios will enable guests to have a completely immersive experience with direct access to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

This will be one of the most unique experiences that Disney Parks has offered yet.  According to Disney Parks Blog, this is what guests can expect:  “Families visiting this destination will board a starship that comes alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during their voyage through the galaxy – and every cabin window has views of space! Guests visiting the multi-day adventure will also be welcome to participate as a resident of the Galaxy by dressing in Star Wars-inspired attire.”

This is a huge addition to Walt Disney World and one that we will be actively following so we can provide you the latest and greatest.

Who else can’t wait to go and stay for this themed experience?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
