‘Cabins are in the section at left. Decks of the ship are in the show building at center. Guests will check in and be transported up the the ship for 2 days of adventure inside the Star Wars timeline,’ the user wrote. 

Guests at the hotel, which is located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, will be offered an immersive experience that could see some Star Wars fans spend more time in the hotel than at the theme park itself. 

Those staying at the luxury hotel will be offered the opportunity to interact with characters and become active participants of their own ‘galactic journey’. 

A spokesman said: ‘This ground-breaking experience is unlike any resort experience you’ve ever seen.

‘From the moment you board your launch pod, it’s a fully immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship complete with high-end dining, space-view cabins and all of the exciting action you would expect from an authentic Star Wars experience.’ 

The construction on the hotel began last year (pictured). The hotel is being built behind the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land in Hollywood Studios in Orlando

Disney World bosses promise guests will enjoy a multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury ‘starship’ complete with high-end dining and space-view cabins

Guests will be able to interact with Star Wars characters inside the hotel take part in their own unique galactic journey

There will be a mixture of cabins with a number that will offer a ‘space-view’ as well as luxury first-class cabins for those who want an extra special journey into the Star Wars world

Guests will be able to interact with some of the Star Wars saga’s favorite creatures such as Chewbacca (the furry creature depicted in the top right) and other 

The ‘Galactic Starcruiser’ will be a first-of-its-kind experience where guests will be aboard the starship called the Halycon

Artist impressions show guests dressed in space-themed garments interacting with creatures that Star Wars fans will recognize from the movie franchise. 

Members of the Keshiri species, a near-Human sentient purple-skinned species native to the planet Kesh, the legendary Wookiee warrior and Han Solo’s co-pilot, Chewbacca, and a number of robotic creatures can be seen interacting with guests in the images offering a sneak-peek of what this luxury space adventure could offer. 

However, it is an experience that will come at a cost – insiders claim that a couple could pay around $3,200 for a two-night/three day stay. 

Bosses unveiled their plans at the D23 Convention in Anaheim, California for the hotel, which is expected to have 32 regular cabins and two first-class cabins per floor. 

The hotel is currently being built behind the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land inside the Hollywood Studios. 

According to a press release, the starcruiser will begin transporting visitors from Walt Disney World Resort in Florida ‘to a galaxy far, far away beginning in 2021’. 

It’s unclear if the plans to open the hotel in 2021 will be postponed amid the coronavirus pandemic.  

Disney bosses unveiled this plan at a convention in Anaheim, California, which shows the layout of a floor of the hotel. Each floor is set to have 32 regular cabins and two first-class cabins 

Artist impressions of the cabins show the interiors will be decked out to look exactly like what one would expect onboard a luxury spacecraft 

The experience promises to offer guests an experience that’s as close to a real life Star Wars adventure as you can get

The experience won’t come cheap with an insider saying a couple could expect to pay around $1,600 a night for a stay in the luxury starship
