New Details Reveal the 'Star Wars' Hotel at Walt Disney World Will Have Special Access
Fans staying at Walt Disney World’s Star Wars hotel will have their own route to the park.
According to permits filed with the South Florida Water Management District, the Orlando Sentinel reports, guests of the new hotel will be able to make a short drive from the Hollywood Studios’ parking lot over a drainage canal to get to the main hotel entrance.
In addition to driving, pedestrians will be able to walk to a special entrance that will put guests between the Millennium Falcon and Battle Escape attractions.
According to plans revealed on WDW News Today, the hotel itself will have limited on-site parking. However, it seems valet parking will be made available. The hotel will be located east of World Drive, on the south side of Hollywood Studios.
The unnamed hotel does not yet have a confirmed opening date, and so far, very few details have been released. Some renderings of proposed interiors like guest rooms and common areas have been released, but there have been no official photos.
But Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, told the Orlando Sentinel that the hotel will be an innovative addition to the resort. And a real treat for fans.
“It’s unlike anything that exists today,” Chapek said. “It is 100 percent 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.”
