Star Wars Themed Resort coming to Walt Disney World.
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be the largest in-park-expansion in Disney Parks history. This is easy to see as literal mountains of dirt are being moved in preparation for this new land and hotel area. #Construction #StarWars #DisneyWorld https://t.co/o4ffHUIpci pic.twitter.com/Na42nsLF9Z

**UPDATE (5/30/18) We now know the location of the new Star Wars resort. According to the Disney Parks Blog, the resort will be located on a plot of land that is already under development, just east of World Drive.
The location can be seen in the above tweet by Attractions Magazine. The location Disney mentions is most likely the cleared land you see on the right hand side of the photo
At the D23 Expo it was announced that a Star Wars themed resort would be coming to Walt Disney World. This new resort will debut as part of the new Disney 360 vacation concept.
Here is what Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, had to say about this new concept at the D23 Expo:
“It’s unlike anything that exists today.” Bob said. “From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.”
There is no opening date announced for this new resort yet.
