Disney survey hints at boutique Star Wars Resort with premium experiences

Apr 18, 2017 in "Star Wars Galaxy's Edge"

Disney's Star Wars Land may be getting more than just two rides, a restaurant and shops - at least at Walt Disney World. In a recent survey, an outline of an immersive Star Wars Resort experience is presented, aimed at taking premium experiences to the next level.

The experience would take place in a Starship themed boutique-style hotel, including a pool, and on-board cantina.

Describing the offering as an "all-inclusive, 2 night immersive resort experience at Walt Disney World," it continues to say that it would include:

The opportunity to experience a 2-day story set in the Star Wars universe:

  • Be surrounded in a continuous, story-driven entertainment experience as it unfolds over the course of the 2-night stay
  • Have personal interactions with Star Wars characters and live performers throughout the starship
  • Impact and experience the story or simply observe the action according to personal preference
  • Engage in the story with programs such as flight training, ship exploration, lightsaber training, and personalized secret missions (both on the starship and throughout the Star Wars themed planet)

Pricing is noted as $900 - $1000 per person, and includes breakfast, lunch, table service dinner, live entertainment, and access to the Star Wars themed land at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The addition of some type of hotel space has been frequently rumored for Star Wars Land at Walt Disney World, with the park having ample space in the surrounding area to build such a venue.

Disney frequently surveys guests about possible concepts, with many becoming reality, and others never seeing the light of day. In the hotel space, one such example that did not come to fruition was the Haunted Mansion themed resort rooms. During the development of the Tower of Terror in the early 90's, the idea of making part of the hotel usable as guest accommodations was strongly considered, but ultimately was rejected.

However, the immense popularity of Star Wars and the scale of investment in the property would suggest this concept has a very good chance of becoming reality.
