Disney has revealed plans for an ambitious Star Wars-themed hotel experience at its Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

The hotel experience will be similar to the Star Wats cruise experience the company revealed earlier this year, however, this new attraction will combine elements of live action role play, introducing costumes, props and even storylines for each guest.

Little is known about the technology that will go into the hotel's production but it has been revealed that the hotel will be framed as a real spaceship within the Star Wars universe, complete with windows that look out into the depths of space.

This new attraction joins the Star Wars Land expansion to the Disney park that will land in Florida and California Disney Resorts in 2019.
