Walt Disney World announced an opening date for their hotly anticipated immersive Star Wars resort, Galaxy Starcruiser. The interactive hotel, meant to bring guests into the galaxy far, far away for days at a time, will open to the public on March 1.

Disney announced the concrete date during a news conference on Thursday, just ahead of the beginning of Disney World's 50th anniversary celebration. The resort, located in Disney's Hollywood Studios near the already open Galaxy's Edge land, will give guests the option of fully immersing themselves in the world of Star Wars for several days.

Inside the Starcruiser, guests can interact with famous characters, take in views of space, visit a far-off planet and train in the ways of the Force, according to a previous news release from Disney.

At the same conference, Disney gave an update on the seemingly endless build of their Guardians of the Galaxy ride. Cosmic Rewind has taken longer to build than the entirety of Epcot, and it will be a while yet before anyone can ride it. It's expected to open in 2022.
