In what is being described as something out of Westworld, Disney is building an immersive Star Wars hotel that will allow its guests to live in the franchise’s fantasy world through attractions such as a Millennium Falcon ride and Cantina (which may actually have booze). Visitors will allegedly be part of a "story" during their stay and be surrounded by staff pretending they are Jedi, ship crew, and so on. That actually sounds overwhelming, but I do like the idea of waking up and looking out into space.

"It’s unlike anything that exists today." Bob said. "From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits."
