The hotel will be built at Walt Disney World in Orlando.
“We feel this could be the start of something very, very big,” Chapek said.
There is not yet a target opening date for the “Star Wars” resort. The announcement about the hotel came after Chapek revealed more details about the “Star Wars”-inspired lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World, including the official name, “Star Wars”: Galaxy’s Edge. Galaxy’s Edge will feature two attractions, one that will put riders inside the Millenium Falcon and another will put riders on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay.
