NEW ATTRACTION: STAR WARS HOTEL
Announced at Disney’s annual D23 Expo, the entertainment giant will be building a Star Wars themed immersive hotel. Now why is that making every geek-at-heart (like me!) freak out? Because immersive means they will give you a character in the Star Wars universe with a story line that will be present in every experience within the hotel. AHHH!
Each guest will be able to role play as a Star Wars universe character with fun, creative tasks like flying a star ship or leading a mission! And did I mention that guests will have access to costumes? I’m so excited about this. The hotel will look like a giant spaceship, where guests can willing suspend reality and make-believe that they are hurtling through space.
The hotel is slated to have 400 rooms at first, with a projected total of 1,000 rooms. Sounds like it might be rather pricey though…with a possible $1,300 price tag for the first guest for two nights. Ouch. New bucket list item?
