Disney released more conceptual images Thursday for the Star Wars-themed hotel and land coming to Walt Disney World.

The hotel will be connected to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, the new Star Wars land being built at Disney's Hollywood Studios slated to open next year. Disney is calling the hotel a "Star Wars-inspired resort" that will "immerse" guests in the blockbuster movie franchise's universe.

Guests staying at the resort — who are encouraged to cosplay in Star Wars garb — will be able to view "space" from hotel windows, where Star Wars fans can spot familiar ships and planets.

The new concept art includes what appears to be a peek inside one of the hotel's guest rooms. A child is sitting in a capsule-like bunk bed, while other members of the family look out the room's "window" to see their "ship" is in orbit over a planet. Another image shows four guests gazing up at a space ship through a cupola in the ceiling.

Plans for the Star Wars hotel were first announced during last summer's D23 Expo in Anaheim.

Disney on Thursday also posted a picture of an X-wing starfighter that will be in Galaxy's Edge. The picture shows the side of the iconic Rebel ship.
