New pictures of Disney World's upcoming Star Wars interactive hotel and Guardians of the Galaxy rollercoaster

NEW images reveal more of Disney's exciting new immersive Star Wars hotel, as well as their new Guardians of the Galaxy rollercoaster.

Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is currently being built at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land at Disney World in Florida.

Guests at the hotel will stay for two days and two nights, and will become "heroes of their own Star Wars story" while on the Halcyon ship.

When checking in, families enter a "launch pod" to transport into space, before stepping into the ship's huge atrium and exploring parts of the Halcyon including the starcruiser’s Bridge.

New pictures of the rooms, revealed at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo, show cabins with a queen-size bed and two bunk beds, with the door resembling a space-ship airlock and "windows" revealing different scenes of space.

During their stay, guests will be given a full wardrobe as well as a back story to their character.

They will then be able to meet and learn more about other characters in the ship as "guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey".

The hotel will have 32 regular cabins and two first-class cabins per floor, with rooms for up to five people.

However, the rooms don't come cheap – previous rumours suggest single standard rooms would start from $3,300 (£2,700), while a cabin of five would be up to $7,200 (£5,900).

A new video has also revealed the ride carriages on the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind ride opening at Epcot.

Passengers will rotate 360-degrees while on the ride, with a reverse launch along the way.

The ride is being dubbed a "storytelling coaster," and will follow the story of the intergalactic military force Nova Corps, exploring a planetarium-like exhibition, before boarding the ride.

Both the Star Wars hotel and Marvel ride hope to open by next year, although this could face delays due to the pandemic.

While Brits can't currently visit Disney World, due to the US travel ban, the parks are already offering deals for next summer.

Disney World has launched package holidays for summer 2021, which include return flights from the UK as well as additional perks.
