BREAKING: New Permits Reveal Disney World Star Wars Hotel Layout, Guests Will Travel to Galaxy’s Edge By Shuttle

Thanks to permits found by californiacoasterkings.com, we now know a bit more about the upcoming Star Wars hotel at Walt Disney World. You may recall this offering was first revealed here on WDWNT.com last year, and then finally announced at the 2017 D23 Expo.

For all of the world’s speculation of walkways connecting the hotel to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, it appears that guests will actually be transported via some type of shuttle bus vehicle that will keep them in the story while bringing them to the planet of Batuu. Also interesting is that this hotel will handle security for the park when guests arrive and check in. The idea here is you will be enclosed in this immersive experience for set amount of time, only traveling between Hollywood Studios and the hotel’s “luxury starship”, so they won’t take you out of it by passing you through metal detectors and bag check.

The Star Wars hotel arrival experience

According to the permits, rooms come in two sizes: a regular sized cabin and the larger first class cabin. The first floor has 32 regular cabins and two first class cabins. If the second floor has the same layout, the Star Wars hotel could have as little as 68 total rooms. This is gonna be expensive…

The plans also show the dining area, as well as other shared facilities.

No opening date has been set for the Star Wars hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in Fall 2019.

The permit mentions “100 keys” meaning 100 rooms.

I think that the sorcerer class buses that were debuted as a prototype at the Destination D/D23 about two years back may be the mod of transportation for the hotel, or at least be an updated version of them. It only seems logical, the technology in those things was better than the buses we have now, only thing that would need to be added is a way to maybe block out the surrounding area, perhaps with screens, like how hogwarts express works. Anyway, just my thoughts.

It’s one thing to x-ray guests entering a theme park, quite another to x-ray their bags and suitcases entering a hotel. Bit of a privacy invasion there.

Or it could have multiple floors and be shaped like Dryden Vos’ ship in Solo.
