Disney are planning an immersive Star Wars resort experience. Doesn’t look like anything to me!

It seems that Disney will be bringing us a Westworld inspired Star Wars experience, just without the homicidal androids!

Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, confirmed that a Star Wars-inspired resort will debut as part of the new Disney 360 vacation concept.

According to Bob, this revolutionary new vacation experience will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling.

It’s unlike anything that exists today. From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.

It sounds rather like the Secret Cinema experience when they did The Empire Strikes Back. That was an amazing time and I wandered around Tatooine with my daughter and walked with Uncle Owen to go and look at a couple of droids he was thinking about buying.

Of course, these type of things only work if you throw yourself into it. A full hotel full of people all working on making Star Wars a reality should make it all the easier. I for one am very excited about this.

As for the Star Wars themed land at Disney World, that will be called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. It will focus on two major rides allowing guests to lead their own adventures. The first is a battle between the Resistance and the First Order. The second allows riders to take control of the Millennium Falcon.

It will be set on a brand new, unnamed planet. The new planet is set on the outer rim of the galaxy, hence the name Galaxy’s Edge. Chris Beatty, Disney Imagineer and executive director of the new expansions, said they created a place where both beloved characters from the franchise could mix with new, unknown members of the galaxy. He called it “a smuggler’s planet,” something quintessential “Star Wars.”

“It’s kind of forgotten about. People in the know like Han and Chewie, they knew of this place,” he said, referencing beloved franchise characters Han Solo and Chewbacca.
