Disney Parks released two new visuals for the highly awaited Star Wars Hotel, to be build near Disney’s Hollywood Studios Star Wars land: “The immersive experience offered at this hotel will stand out among all of our resorts around the globe. As you can see, families visiting this resort will board a starship alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during their voyage through the galaxy – and every window has a view of space!”
Watch the animated image on the video below showing the guests arrival at the hotel, supposedly being a starship floating in space. Guests apparently will reach the “starship” thanks to a shuttle bringing them to the starship where they will stay. All this of course will be made thanks to special effects designed by WDI wizards.
“It’ll be unlike anything that exists today. From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100% 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.”
The resort will also be seamlessly connected to the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, allowing guests a complete Star Wars experience. Guests visiting the resort will be welcome to participate as a resident of the galaxy by dressing in Star Wars-inspired attire. Inside their room guests will see through the window the infinite space and what’s happening “below”.
Considering that what guests will see through the hotel / starship windows will be projections some wonder if guests might suffer of claustrophobic effect. My answer is: if the visual illusion is well done they shouldn’t have the feeling to be captive in a closed space. That said, a good air conditioning with a cool breeze will surely help to cool down claustrophobic anxiety if it happens .
I remind you the previously released renderings showing the hotel “lobby”, play areas and another one showing the guests room.
