The hotel will add another layer to the personalized immersion experience. Each guest will get their own storyline. All of the Disney employees or “cast members” present will be in costume and in character. The visitors will have an opportunity to dress up the part to customize their role as well.

The guest’s story will take place on a space ship where the windows will only show space. Looks like Disney is aiming for the Westworld experience, except you won’t to worry about being cut down by a rogue droid,  Sith, Jedi or a stray blaster from the resistance or storm trooper.

Galaxy’s Edge will be coming to Disney theme parks in 2019. Will you be booking passage? Is this the experience you’ve been waiting for?
