AHHHHHHH. Disney just announced that’s potentially so damned cool that I hardly need to use complete sentences here: Immersive. Star Wars. Hotel. Details are still super light, but Disney just dropped this bombshell in the middle of its D23 expo down in Los Angeles. Here’s what we know so far: All of the employees (or ‘cast members’, in Disney Park lingo) will be in costume and in character Each guest will get a storyline, which Disney specifically says will “touch every single minute of your day” It’s meant to take place on a space ship; ‘windows’ will only show space.
