Disney guests at Hollywood Studios will soon be able to eat, breathe and live everything Star Wars. Today, Disney revealed a few interesting tidbits about their new fully immersive Star Wars-themed hotel and resort.

While speaking at the D23 Expo in Japan, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek announced that the new resort will "seamlessly connect" with the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attraction, which opens next year.

Upon arriving at the resort, guests will board a starship with its own characters and stories that unfold during the voyage. Once there, the resort is designed to be a "multi-day Star Wars adventure," where guests can dress up in themed attire and become "active citizens of the galaxy."



Disney also announced that every window at the resort will have a view of "space."
Disney hasn't confirmed an exact date for the hotel and resort, but Star Wars Galaxy's Edge is expected to open sometime in 2019.
