Disney is opening an immersive Star Wars Hotel where each guest gets a storyline

AHHHHHHH. Disney just announced something that’s potentially so
damned cool that I hardly need complete sentences here:
Immersive. Star Wars. Hotel.

Details are still super light, but Disney just dropped this
bombshell in the middle of its D23 expo down in Los Angeles.

Here’s what we know so far:

  • All of the employees (or ‘cast members’, in Disney Park
    lingo) will be in costume and in character
  • Each guest will get a storyline, which Disney specifically
    says will “touch every single minute of your day”
  • It’s meant to take place on a space ship; ‘windows’ will
    only show space.

In other words, it’s… like… Westworld (or, you know, as close
as anyone can get) plus Star Wars, minus all the sexy and/or
murdery stuff.

The potential here is incredible. I’d be excited about
this even if it was just some haphazard third party throwing
together a Star Wars-themed weekend. But with the might of an
army of Disney Imagineers and Lucasfilm’s own stamp of approval
on it? Oh man, oh man, oh man.

Sadly for us Californians, Disney has only mentioned this as
coming to Florida’s Walt Disney World thus far. BRB, buying
plane tickets to Orlando.
