New Permit Filed for Installation of Themed Show Set Elements at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

As construction was halted across all of Walt Disney World due to the unprecedented COVID-19 closures, work at various construction sites came to a standstill. However, with the parks now reopening, Walt Disney Imagineering is gearing back up to try and meet deadlines—at least on projects that are already underway.

Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, progress has stalled on the upcoming Star Wars-themed luxury hotel formally known as Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, however today a permit was filed for “Project H” for the installation of themed show set elements.

The contractor listed on the permit is ThemeWorks, Inc., the same firm behind the immersive Jurassic Park and The Lost Continent lands in Universal’s Islands of Adventure, among other projects, so we’re sure the interior is bound to look stunning.

Given how deadlines were missed for the last several Florida projects, not to mention the added setbacks of the ongoing pandemic, it’s likely that the project has been delayed somewhat, but as implied by the recent permits, work is still moving full steam ahead.

Are you planning on staying at the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser when it opens? Start banking those credits now, because you’re going to need to steal a whole lot of coaxium to afford to stay aboard the Halcyon. Reservations are set to open later this year.
