It looks like Disney World in Florida is aiming to be the destination of choice for Star Wars fans. It's toying with the idea of adding a hotel/resort that would fully immerse guests in the Star Wars universe, reports Business Insider. In fact, the idea is that they'd sleep in what looks like a starship. Based on a survey sent out to gauge interest, guests would interact with characters while taking part in a two-day "story" that involves lightsaber training, flight training, and, of course, secret missions, reports Walt Disney World News Today.

The hotel would likely be located within the Star Wars Land theme park at Disney World, which is scheduled to open in 2019. Figure about $1,000 per guest, which could cover meals and admission to the theme park. Not that it's a done deal. A spokesperson notes that in the big ideas stage, "some of these ideas come to fruition, while many do not," per WFTV. (George Lucas is planning a museum, too.)
