Disney will soon offer Star Wars the chance to experience a galaxy far, far way.

That’s right. In 2021, Orlando, Florida’s Walt Disney World will open the doors to its newly-announced Star Wars-themed hotel, the Galactic Starcruiser.

Plans for the upcoming “all-immersive” Star Wars vacation experience were unveiled on Tuesday evening, through Disney World’s official website.

The two-night, “cruise-style” adventure will allow Disney lovers and fans of the much-beloved sci-fi franchise alike to experience their own Star Wars-inspired story at the comfort of the world-renowned 14-acre resort.

The 24/7 experience will begin at the very first step inside of the Galactic Starcruiser, which will be known as “the terminal.” From there, guests will be taking to an “exclusive launch pod,” and journey to the “Halycon” — which includes a restaurant, bar and hotel rooms.

Along the way, fans will be treated to a trip to the planet Batuu (Galaxy’s Edge) and its famed spaceport, Black Spire Outpost, where they will enjoy a variety of different activities, before hitting several other destinations.

Among some of the many activities included in the full vacation experience, visitors will meet some of their most beloved Star Wars characters, and go through lightsaber training themselves, according to People.
