Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, an immersive two-night hotel experience, appears to be making construction progress at Walt Disney World, where it debuts in 2021.

Disney has seemingly made progress on its highly-anticipated Star Wars hotel, according to photos shared by Twitter user Bioreconstruct (via Fox News).

“Aerial look at the Porte Cochère of Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser (hotel),” the user wrote. “One of the recent changes is the walkway at [the] arrow.”

“None of the show [buildings] will be visible to guests,” noted Bioreconstruct. “An instant forest and the high walls will be in the sightline.”

The accommodation attraction will offer a two-night itinerary, with all guests arriving and departing at the same time, similar to Disney Cruise Line.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will feature activities, which include lightsaber training and a trip to the starcruiser’s bridge to learn how to operate ship systems.

Guests will also get to explore the Halcyon, and will spend a day at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The user shared several images of “construction activity” at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. “Cabins are in the section at left,” wrote Bioreconstruct.

“Decks of the ship are in the show building at center,” it added. “Guests will check in and be transported up the the ship for 2 days of adventure inside the Star Wars timeline.”

Upon arrival at the Galactic Starcruiser Terminal, visitors will enter an exclusive launch pod to travel to the Halcyon ship, which is far too large to land on planets.

Reservations for Star Wars hotel set to open in 2020

As guests travel in the launch pod, it will feel as though they are speeding through space, thanks to the pod’s viewports.

Earlier this year, Disney announced that reservations for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser would open later in 2020.

Meanwhile, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, Josh D’Amaro, shared that Disney will lay off approximately 28,000 employees due to the prolonged impact of COVID-19.
