Star Wars fans are about to lose their minds. As part of the anticipated Star Wars: Galaxys Edge being added to Floridas Disney World in 2019, the theme park is also getting an immersive resort based on the epic film series.
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman Bob Chapek told a crowd at the D23 Expo last weekend that:
We are working on our most experiential concept ever, it combines a luxury resort with immersion in an authentic environment. Its unlike anything that exists today. From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story. Youll 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.
As The Verge puts it: Guests wouldnt wear flip-flops and shorts; theyd wear Star Wars costumes. They wouldnt deal with hotel employees; theyd interact with Star Wars creatures and droids. And over the course of their stay, the story would unfold around them through a series of story moments and interactions, letting them fall completely into a fictional world.
According to Disney World News Today, the experience would be priced around $1000 per guest and include (among other things), room with an interactive view (galaxy or pool/atrium), set check-in and check-out dates so everyone is immersed on the same story timeline, and story-driven entertainment that unfolds over the course of your stay (including live character chance encounters, and the opportunity to watch or engage in the story through things like personalized secret missions, flight training, starship exploration, and lightsaber training).
No word if Disney plans to expand this idea to California.
I used to attend Media West in Lansing every year...we were several decades ahead of Disney on this! It was three days of living in that universe, costumes, blaster battles, et al. It was really a lot of fun. Excessive, but fun.
Will the paying public be wearing RED SHIRTS ?
Well, OK. But this time if Princess Leia ain’t nekkid I’m demanding my quatloos back.
OK, I know this is from The Fifth Element, but consider, Jar Jar Binks as a black man! Instead of forking out a Cleveland to stay each night at that Disney 'resort', I would insist on their paying me a Wilson to stay for a night!

"According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.The first stage being "demoralization". It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism.Most of the activity of the department [KGB] was to compile huge amount / volume of information, on individuals who were instrumental in creating public opinion. Publisher, editors, journalists, uh actors, educationalists, professors of political science. Members of parliament, representatives of business circles.Most of these people were divided roughly into two groups: those who would tow the Soviet foreign policy, they would be promoted to positions of power through media and public manipulation; [and] those who refuse the Soviet influence in their own country would be character assassinated OR executed physically, come Revolution.

Sounds cool, but not for me; I’ll enjoy the rides and so on at the parks, but resort lodging is for decompression, cooling off, and sleeping :)
