Star Wars hotel construction at Walt Disney World - July 2019
Posted: Wednesday July 24, 2019 8:50am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Here is a latest look at the new Star Wars hotel currently under construction near to Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.

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. 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.

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.

My kids love the app. They enjoy making things hoot and bleep and such. Personally I like hacking the A-wing as people are taking pictures.
