Plans appear to include a microbrewery and new retail space.
The “not a hotel” promises to be one of the most immersive experiences yet for the company, with costumed characters assuming the role of housekeeping staff and room windows projecting scenes of outer space.
It will be connected to a Star Wars land that’s opening at Disney World on Aug. 29, following the debut of a similar attraction at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The $1 billion lands are among the largest investments Disney has made in its resorts.
At the D23 conference, Disney also announced plans to revamp Disney World’s Epcot. It will include a new attraction based on its animated hit “Moana.”
