Back in April, rumors spread around Star Wars Celebration that a Star Wars themed resort could be coming to the Walt Disney World Resort.
Today (7/15) at D23 Expo’s Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Panel, Bob Chapek confirmed that a Star Wars themed resort is, indeed, coming to Walt Disney World in Florida.
According to Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, this is a revolutionary vacation experience where Guests will be immersed in a real life adventure.
“It’s unlike anything that exists today,” Chapek explained at his panel today. “From the second you arrive, you will become a part of the Star Wars story… 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.”
There’s no word on when we can expect to see this resort at Disney World but keep it locked here at The Geekiverse for updates on the resort, Disney Parks, and all things Star Wars!
Amanda Woomer-Limpert is one of the Geekiverse’s newest writers, a Star Wars freak, and a former Disney Cast Member. The seven year old fangirl living inside her is currently freaking out over this confirmation.
