    I have heard $650 per adult per night, $250 per child per night.

    Really? That's just nuts! Almost $2000 for three days? I'll pass, thank you. My last trip to WDW was 10 days, and it cost lees than that. Heck, Space Camp (3 days) costs less than 1 day of this overpriced thing. Yet another reason my loyalty to Disney is waning fast.
    First trip, Christmas 1971.
    Last Trip, Oct. 2017 - ICOT20!

    My family and I have zero interest in Star Wars - one reason Hollywood Studios will be a half day park for us. And we definitely won't be staying at this new hotel - especially at the price they'll be charging!

    As for the Stars Wars Experience, I'm not sure people are understanding. If you do this experience, you are not travelling to the parks (except DHS). Your entertainment IS the experience. Not my thing, but if it was $650 a day sounds about right for room, costume, food, and experience. Not cheap, but not over the top.

    I think that the high price is part of the point... this is for DIE HARD FANS, not just the curious or casual vacationer... if you are going to pay that price, then you're going to do research and know what you're getting into.

    Actually, I think Disney runs the risk of not living up to the patrons expectations.

    Don't we expect more satisfaction when the price for a Disney vacation gets higher and higher?

    Exactly. This isn't just a "Star Wars hotel." It's an entirely new vacation program: "Disney 360 Vacations." It will be marketed differently, will probably have its own website (like Adventures by Disney), etc.

    I imagine this is the "pilot" hotel for this program and if it is successful, we will see more open up in different locations around the country (and world), eventually.

    I would almost expect this to have to be booked as a "Tour" rather than as a resort stay.

    I have no idea if this is in their plans or not, but they *could* build the hotel of this experience in such a way that a portion of it was separate from the "experience" and be just a cool Star Wars themed hotel. Two birds and all that...

    But that would undermine the value of the experience. Or, in other words, no one would book the experience.

    It will be like booking a cruise. You will have to book specific dates when everyone will arrive on the same day and the "experience" will kick off. You and your fellow guests will be experiencing everything as it unfolds, together. Like a cruise. There will be (rumor) 2 night and 3 night "experiences." I imagine they will alternate, like the 3 & 4 day cruises.

    I disagree. I routinely pay for nonsense I have no idea what I"m getting into, but the Wife books its, soo... As far as the price compelling research, it isn't much different than many of the more expensive options at Disney.

    I do agree that Disney runs a risk w/ living up to expectations.

    Default Disney 360 Vacation

    Maybe they are on to something. There is talk that Universal Orlando is interested in building its own Universal 360 Vacation, and that they are polling their guests now, as to whether their guests would be interested, and what type of Immersive Entertainment Program their guests would most like to see. With Harry Potter or Jurassic Park being the most likely choices.

    I know the HP franchise puts a lot of extra requirements on them, so I dunno about that. The theme, and how it ties in, standards, etc. Universal doesn't have full control (PL Travers style) over HP.

    But JP. Easy. The movie is based on going to a theme park. A cross between a AK resort, the Dis cruiseline, yeap. I see that one.

    Dressing up? If the fam wanted to do that, fine. Me, I'll be at the bar.

    I know some people who would love a Jurassic Park vacation.
