On Wednesday Disney revealed the pricing for its new highly anticipated Star Wars Hotel.
The Disney (DIS) World-based hotel Galactic Starcruiser is essentially a cruise ship set in space, with the pricing to match.
According to the company, it’s the “most immersive Star Wars story ever created”. And in order to book a stay here, you may have to shell out $6,000 for two nights.
The hotel would start welcoming guests in spring 2022.
It is allocated by Disney as a “revolutionary new two-night experience where you and your group will embark on a first-of-its-kind Star Wars adventure that’s your own.”
Even though the hotel is on land still the pricing is very much similar to the model of Disney’s cruise ships at sea.
These cruise ships charge the price for a multi-day journey, which includes entertainment, food and beverages and other fun activities.
On Wednesday the firm revealed sample cabin rates for the hotel.
Therefore, for a two-night stay, it costs $4,809 for two guests in a cabin, $5,299 for three guests (two adults and one child) and $5,999 for four guests (three adults, one child).
So, what does $6,000 get you in space?
Disney says that pricing covers an “ongoing, immersive and interactive entertainment, where choices determine your experience,” –
Your meals (excluding alcohol) and admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the home of the Star Wars-themed land Galaxy’s Edge are included.
It also stated that: “rates vary depending on your voyage departure date, the number of guests in your cabin and your cabin type.”
The hotel is the latest way for Disney to bring its parks and resorts alive and help them evolve for the future.
It follows the 2019 debut of Galaxy’s Edge, which was the company’s largest-ever expansion at its parks.
The land uses state-of-the-art technology and thorough design to wrap guests into an experience that feels more like immersive theatre than a theme park.
The new hotel looks to outspread that Star Wars experience.
Disney has also integrated another of its famous franchises into its parks with Marvel’s Avengers Campus. It opened at Disneyland in California on June 4.
It is very important for Disney’s media empire to update its parks and resorts as the unit was hit pretty hard because of the pandemic last year.
Due to this, the company faced months of closures and widespread layoffs.
Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro told CNN Business in April that the future of Disney’s parks and resorts is “going to be fresh, it’s going to be technology-ridden. It’s going to be incredibly relevant to guests all around the world.
“Every single day, these parks are changing,” he said.
