A Walt Disney World Resort hotel can almost be as much fun to visit as one of the theme parks! Each Resort has its own theme, with various levels of dining, entertainment, and recreation. All of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels include the perk of Early Theme Park Entry.

Coming in the future is an immersive Star Wars-themed resort. Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a hotel option, but lends itself more toward a complete experience. Disney calls it a “2-night, immersive adventure.” The Galatic Starcruiser opens on March 1, 2022. It is the most highly-themed Resort that Disney has ever built, and it promises to transport guests into the world of Star Wars for an experience like no other. Guests aboard Galactic Starcruiser will not need to purchase an admission ticket to Hollywood Studios in order to experience the “port day” in Galaxy’s Edge. This excursion is included in the price of your two-day voyage.
