New Permits Show Size of Star Wars Hotel and More

Star Wars Hotel

We are excited to share new details on the much-anticipated Star Wars Hotel coming to Walt Disney World! Per permits filed by Disney, we are learning the approximate size of the hotel and how it will be connected to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The first image below gives us a sense of what the footprint of the Star Wars Hotel will be. As we thought, the hotel will not be that large. It looks to be a basic shape and there also looks like there will be a pool directly on the property.

Are you already planning on driving to the new Star Wars Hotel? While not confirmed, it looks like the entrance to the new hotel will be accessible through the Hollywood Studios parking lot.

As also previously reported, it does appear that there will be a special VIP entrance from the hotel to Hollywood Studios and, of course, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

At this time, no official opening date has been announced for the Star Wars Hotel. We have reported that land has been cleared and construction has begun. It should be ready for guests in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary year in 2021 if not sooner.
