Disney has today released a few more tidbits on the upcoming Star Wars-inspired resort coming to Walt Disney World.

This first-of-its-kind resort will combine luxury with complete immersion into an authentic Star Wars story. Guests’ journey through space will start when everyone departs together for a multiday Stars Wars adventure by boarding a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during a voyage through the galaxy.

At the resort, guests immediately become active citizens of the galaxy and can dress up in the proper attire. Every resort window will also have a view into space. The opportunity for immersion at this resort will also stand out among all Disney resorts around the globe, as it will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a total Star Wars experience.

And it’s been confirmed hasn’t it? A female RX droid. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Unidentified_RX-Series_pilot_droid_(Halcyon)

I suppose they could have a screen at the front of the passenger compartment that acts as a 'window' into the front of the craft, showing the driver and his view out the front window.

I'm sorry, it can be hard to tell a joke online. It actually would be cool to have a themed driver.

Or a self driving vehicle. Not a technological stretch for Star Wars.

It was just a joke. :)

From the looks of the illustrations, passengers will not see the driver. It looks like the passenger compartment of the bus is sealed off from the driver.

Florida heat, rain, costumes maybe?

no, not "right next to" and there is no walking - its back stage to GE so that will not be happening. Top is the Galactic Starcruiser, bottom is Galaxy's Edge.

I think they should make everybody walk, just build a themed path. Isn't it right next to Galaxy's Edge? Walking will be faster than waiting for any bus, and should be cheaper.

That's a great idea! I bet people will pay extra for this experience.

People who can't afford the SW hotel can go to Space 220. That's what we are doing. For our family of 4, it's only $80x3+$30, or $300 or so, for a 3hr+ first class space experience, with lots of food provided. Compare that to 3K/night, it's dirt cheap. And we are good after 3 hours. We don't need to be in there all day and night.
