PHOTOS - Latest construction pictures of the Star Wars hotel at Walt Disney World

Star Wars hotel construction at Walt Disney World - June 2019
Posted: Wednesday June 12, 2019 10:50am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Construction crews have been busy at the future Star Wars hotel, with much of the main building now in place.

The two story structure is expected to have less than 100 guest rooms, with its interior designed to recreate the interior of a space craft - including spaces such as Dojo, the Brig, and the Engineering Room - all locations that could contain highly themed and immersive experiences.

You can read more about the Star Wars hotel in a previous article where we looked at some detailed plans of the hotel.

If you are wondering where the hotel fits in relation to Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, you can see the hotel in the top left of the picture below.

Disney is yet to release an opening date, but with the speed of construction and the relatively small size of the hotel, a 2020 opening would seem a realistic estimate.

Oh I see applications for CM's acting out scenes, cosplay etc. but definitely not to be actually practicing any kind of contact combative.

Possibly like the potter wands it's only meant for some level of environmental interactivity (either only on starcruiser or that + GE) rather than whacking at other blades and such.

That blade furls and unfurls like a metal blind slat. No way it can be strong enough to withstand any blow and still function

I believe it will least through more than one swipe, but, if it too well constructed and lasts that will impact sales volume.

Be interesting if this is a commercial product (a la savi's sabers or potter wands) or simply for cast 'shows' and the starcruiser experience.

Yeah, one swipe and this is expensive space junk. Not for kids big or small I think

I wonder what the 'blade' is composed of to coil yet have rigidity.

No one cares about hashtags on a forum... but we do care about links to further reading. I know I could search for it... but I would hope instead of working up so many hashtags, you'd actually supply USEFUL elements that you already had.

It's innovative. It's creative. It has OOOH AAAH factor. I want to see the price tag on the production model.

6 hashtags, but no link to the patent? Figures

#Lightsaber announced yesterday by @joshdamaro @DisneyParks is probably the one #Disney filed a patent for back in 2017. Most likely for the Dojo experience at the #GalacticStarcruiser at #GalaxysEdge #Batuu East. Might be for stunt performers as well. 546704546705546706

Apparently Josh D'Amaro ignited a real-looking lightsaber at the end of his preso today and that's got a lot of people talking.
