    From my experience on Smugglers Run I would be very scared of this scenario.

    "I'm leaving!"

    They should turn the Bridge into Blips and Chitz.

    Lol I would book too if it was based on the OT/PT or a Trilogy I cared about.

    I think that would be funny as hell. The highly sensitive people would be the only ones upset.

    Since it's going to be mostly supreme diehard fans, I wonder how many people would have breakdowns if I booked a room full of people all acting and dressing like we're in Star Trek and we're more worried about the Klingons than the Empire.

    I would kill to see this. Call the Storm Troopers the Borg and keep asking when Q is going to show up.

    Like the new Star Wars hotel sounds cool and all, but if they don't have the porn simulator Chewbacca's dad had in the Christmas Special, I'm suing.

    Moving from Land thread to avoid thread drift ...

    I think the biggest problem is getting across just WHAT this is--call it "The IoA Effect". Even fairly knowledgeable theme park fans here and on Twitter see this as "just a hotel"--and at that price point, the price for a room for the night is absolutely insane. But I don't know how you show potential customers the extent of an all-inclusive 2-day LARPing experience in a 30-second ad or an Instagram post.

    My wife is a huge Star Wars fan, and when word broke that a "Star Wars Hotel" was coming, she unequivocally said, "we're going."

    But... The more she hears about it, the less inclined she's becoming to actually go. As she says it: "I don't want a cruise. I just a hotel themed to Star Wars." She doesn't want the LARPing or the scheduling. She wants a week-long vacation with room service, TV, an eat-whenever restaurant, and the freedom to just go where she wants when she wants. A locked in, 3-day, 2-day experience is actually turning her off.

    This hotel only is going to have like 100 rooms. This place isn't gonna be that expensive to build and at the prices they're charging, I find it hard to believe they won't be printing money, even at a lower-than-they-would-like occupancy.

    A guy I work with is all in on going to this hotel and can’t wait to go, granted I’m not sure if he knows it’s 3 day LARPing experience.

    I agree with your wife.

    I want a Star Wars Hotel (and Nintendo / Wizarding World ones) but I want it to just be a themed hotel that feels like I'm in that world. I'm not looking to be in what they are building.
    It feels like forced fun (no pun intended!)

    Which, ironically, any success/failure of this would be huge boon to a potential "Leaky Cauldron" or other HP hotel is because, canonically, they're JUST hotels.

    I think I'm opposite of you on all of these lol..

    can't afford it, not a Star Wars fan, this does look like something I'd love to do once but probably won't ever

    So this may be a stupid question but, So what if this Star Wars--Galatiic--Starcruiser doesn't bring in the guest like they want? What are they gonna do once the hype wears off for people to stay there, what would they do leave it empty or redo the property into something different, like Andy's Toy Box hotel. Just curious, I see some people will do this, I may even do it at some point next year. Just a question that has been in my mind, and decided to ask you guys, because the other place to ask this question, i am not apart of but check it sometime.
