We talk a lot about how Disney is on the cutting edge of technology — and that’s true — but that’s not the only tool they have in their kit.
Combine Disney’s advanced technologies and engineering with expert business models and a company-wide market value of almost $200 billion, and you’ve got a company that’s poised to morph the entertainment world forever — and that’s just what Disney is attempting to do. Here are three ways Disney is changing the way YOU experience entertainment!
There are lots of upcoming projects in the works at Disney World, and one we’re especially excited about is Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, an incredibly immersive, themed hotel!
We’ve been eagerly awaiting updates about this project, and we decided to take a trip past the site to check out any construction progress!
This has been an exciting week for construction projects in Disney World!
We got a look at the brand-new, just revealed EPCOT fountain AND we FINALLY got our hands on those mega-delicious (and mega LARGE) cookies from the just-opened Gideon’s Bakehouse in Disney Springs! Those weren’t the only changes we noticed this week and we’re here to tell you about ALL of them!
There are SO many ways Disney is planning to “take us to space” in the near future.
For one, Space 220 will be opening (someday) in EPCOT so that guests can dine in space (although it’s been delayed several times so we’re really questioning if we made it all up at this point). Plus, the Galactic Starcruiser (the Star Wars Hotel), will transport guests INTO the Star Wars universe like never before!
2020 has brought a LOT of twists and turns, and we’re still very much in the midst of grappling with them. This year and next were supposed to be exciting ones in terms of opening attractions.
There are still projects to be excited about, of course, but Disney has left us wondering when and if some of them will ever be completed. Luckily, there are a few BIG Disney attractions that we can still expect to open in 2021 — here are the upcoming projects scheduled for completion next year!
The Disney theme parks tend to stay on the cutting edge of technology in more ways than one.
Sure, we’re always keeping up with Disney patents for their latest innovations and we’ve experienced some of the CRAZIEST tech firsthand like on Disney World’s Rise of the Resistance. But that tech does need a defining thread to keep moving forward and Imagineers find that thread in the Disney Theme Park Metaverse.
One major Disney project that we’ve got our eye on is the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hotel.
We keep our eye out for Disney permits to make sure that we don’t miss any exciting developments on projects like Galactic Starcruiser. We know that work continues to be underway thanks to recent patents and overhead photos, but now it looks like some set elements and theming are being incorporated at the site!
Last week, Disney participated in a virtual conference and gave some insight about the future of the Disney resorts, cruise line, Disney+, and more.
Check out what one Disney executive had to say about what Disney Parks projects will be moving forward with construction in the parks.
We’re heading to a galaxy far, far away!
We’re super excited about the new Star Wars hotel, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser that’s currently under construction outside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Once it’s completed, the hotel will offer guests an immersive Star Wars experience that takes theming to the next level!
