Disney yesterday posted a job position for the Hotel Services director at the upcoming Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser.


Despite the COVID-19 closures and delays, Walt Disney World's Star Wars themed 2 night experience remains on track to open, although a precise opening date is not yet available. Onboarding a Hotel Services director appears to suggest that the construction phase is moving towards to an operational phase.

Here is an overview of the position. You can find out more at the Disney Careers website.

Disney is searching for a seasoned hotelier with senior leadership hospitality experience on land or at sea to serve as Hotel Services Director for our new Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser. As a Hotel Services Director you will lead and implement a unique immersive two-night experience aligned with our Star Wars franchise. A passion for bringing ideas to life, creativity, value a non-traditional work environment, and balance traditional hotel experience with immersive entertainment are all important traits you will need to have to be successful in this role. If selected, you will report to the Regional General Manager – Hotel Operations.

Disney describes the new hotel as a "first-of-its-kind vacation experience where guests will check in for a two-night adventure aboard a glamorous starship. Once onboard, guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey. "

The image above shows a model of the ship called the Halcyon from the Chandrila Star Line, which is where you adventure will take place.

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.
