Disney reveals first visuals of ambitious Star Wars attraction – including designs for hotel 'pods'

Disney has released the first visuals of its Star Wars-themed Galactic Starcruiser resort, which is set to open at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida next year.

The ambitious new attraction will offer accommodation in hotel 'pods', which are part of a new type of "ultra-deep immersion" experience into the Star Wars universe.

Each guest will be able to become the hero of their own adventure during a two-day, two-night stay.

Guests will arrive and depart together at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal, resembling a small, private cruise terminal.

They will then be directed into a "launchpad" and blasted into space, where they will arrive at the "Halcyon" for the two-day, immersive stay.

Guests will sleep in ship-like cabins, experience onboard dining and interact with role-playing cast and crew members.

Windows in the cabins offer ever-changing views of the galaxy as the ship progresses from place to place.

The attraction will offer each guest a unique experience, as the choices they make during the two-day stay will affect the exact nature of their "journey".

"This is a Star Wars vacation experience unlike anything Disney has ever created before," said Jeremy Schoolfield, managing editor of Walt Disney World Resort Public Relations.

"Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will offer a two-night itinerary where all guests arrive and depart together, similar to Disney Cruise Line.

"Unlike any typical cruise, though, you can become the heroes of your own Star Wars story in a new type of immersive experience that only Disney could create.

"Onboard, you will stay in well-appointed cabins, experience onboard dining, make a planet-side excursion to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, and much more.

"Throughout the journey, you will be invited to delve deeper into your personal adventure by participating in onboard activities, interacting with characters, crew, other passengers you meet, and becoming part of the action and the broader Star Wars saga."
