Walt Disney World Offers First Look At Star Wars Hotel Rooms
The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is still under construction, but Disney Parks Chairman Josh D'Amaro shared photos of physical mock-ups of the rooms at the IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Park Operators) Expo: Virtual Education Conference on Monday.
As you can see, the rooms are very much designed to make you feel like you're bedding down on a galactic starcruiser.
A 'window' on the wall even offers views of the galaxy outside, while a screen appears to display navigation information. Hopefully this screen can get switched to Sky Sports once the kids have had their fill of the pretend space satnav.
The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is due to open at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida next year, though the exact date is yet to be confirmed.
When it does open, guests will be treated to a two-day immersive experience on board the spaceship/hotel.
As Disney explains: "In a galaxy far, far away, progress continues at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, where guests will live aboard a starship for a 2-day, 2-night experience.
"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.

"Guests will cruise the galaxy in style aboard the Halcyon, known for its impeccable service and exotic destinations.
"Onboard, you'll stay in well-appointed cabins, experience onboard dining, make a planet-side excursion to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu and much more."
It's not clear yet how much the experience will cost.
It's been a relatively hard year though for Disney and its parks, due to the impact of coronavirus
As such, the company is looking forward to 2021, like the rest of us.
Thomas Smith, editorial content director at Disney Parks, said: "While we never could have imagined what this year would hold for our company, we've learned so much: how to share that special Disney Parks magic with our fans at home during the closures of our businesses worldwide; how to reimagine our park, resort, and store experiences to meet new challenges; and how, even amid uncertainty, to plan for what we know are better days ahead.
"Now, as we look to the future, there are new and exciting milestones on the horizon.
"While the pandemic meant putting some projects on pause, we never stopped dreaming up new experiences.
"And we are looking forward to inviting our guests to see what we've been working on."
