Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
August 29 - December 31, 2020
Come live your very own Star Wars™ story in a whole new land where a galaxy far, far away unfolds all around you. Welcome to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opening August 29, 2019 at Walt Disney World® Resort. Around corners and through back alleys, you can build your own droid and custom lightsaber† and sample the curious concoctions of the local cantina. Then, gather your crew and take control of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. And, after opening December 5, 2019, find yourself caught in an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance—where the incoming laser fire of a towering AT-AT is matched only by the red crackle of Kylo Ren’s lightsaber. Soon the time will come to live your adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
†Purchase required. Reservations may be required.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction opens December 5, 2019.

Make the jump to hyperspace—and to a new destination from Star Wars: The Force Awakens—during a 3D, motion-simulated space flight.
During your voyage, interact with many of the otherworldly characters and places made famous in the Star Wars saga. Hold on tight as you exit hyperspace to find yourself in the middle of a furious starship battle above Coruscant. Plunge into the oceans of Naboo and avoid the clutches of monstrous fish. Retreat inside the dreaded Death Star to escape Darth Vader before doing battle with Boba Fett. Plus, you’ll visit an all-new location from Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

Holiday of a lifetime
This hotel is perfect for going anywhere in Florida, it is central to all the parks, malls, and being on International Drive it has all the restaurant and bars close at hand. The rooms are of a lovely size with fridge, microwave, coffee machine and safe. The beds were very comfortable and always clean and tidy. The room was spotless.
Once again staying at the Rosen
We have stayed at this hotel literally 15-20 different times from away back when it was the Rodeway and our last trip being in November 2019. It is a great hotel for couples, families, whatever. The staff are great, it is clean and any rooms we have stayed in lead onto an indoor corridor providing extra security. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and have booked my flights for returning to International Drive in November 2020 and will probably stay in the Rosen International.
