Star Wars hotel construction at Walt Disney World - May 2019
Posted: Wednesday May 8, 2019 9:55am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

These latest aerial photos show the current state of construction on the upcoming Star Wars hotel at Walt Disney World.

The foundations of the two story hotel are now very clearly visible, and its position relative to Star Wars Galaxy's Edge is now very apparent.

Disney is yet to provide an opening date for the hotel, or offer any specific details, but we did learn a lot about the resort from some recently revealed plans. You can read about that in a previous article.

Be sure to save the bag to carry your lightsaber back to your room in.

I guess this is why they're theming the backside- because we'll glimpse part of it through the ceiling? Odd. Though that tower/spire should look neat looming overhead. I guess this area needs to serve double-duty as shuttle drop off and real world access point.

Maybe they kidnap you to and from the land so you travel with a black bag on your head?

Outside the gate. The box at the start of the red line is the gangway that will connect to the shuttle and then you will follow the red line into the land.

I imagine all of that will be handled in the app on your phone, no additional props required. Though now I’m imagining getting a text:”Do you want 2 join Resistance? Reply YES to join or STOP to end”
