Have you sensed a great disturbance in The Force of late? It may well be because Disney has just unveiled plans for the world's biggest and best Star Wars-themed hotel.

Planned for the new Star Wars Land theme park - slated for a 2019 opening at Disney World in Florida - the hotel is rumoured to resemble the Millennium Falcon spaceship.

Social media is abuzz with excitement at the prospect of an immersive and interactive Star Wars story experience, set over two days, to entertain guests during their stay.

Those staying at the hotel will be able to take part in the narrative events as they unfold, including mixing with characters from the films (who will roam the corridors and public areas), duel with lightsabers and pilot spacecraft.

Guests might also be assigned secret missions which will take place either "on board" (i.e. in the hotel) or "on planet" (in the theme park).

Hotel amenities will include a pool area, water park and fitness centre. Meals will be taken in the 'cantina' (hopefully with live music from a Bith band), and food and drink will be served by droid butlers.

Rooms will accommodate up to four people, who will be able to enjoy views of the galaxy from their windows.

Available for two-night stays only, rooms will reportedly cost US$900 to $1,000 ($1306 to $1450) per person. This will include all meals, as well as admission to the theme park, which will be set over 14 acres at Disney's Orlando resort.

Star Wars Land will be the company's joint-largest single-theme land expansion - the other is a similar Star Wars theme park at Disneyland Park in California.

Disney are closely guarding the details at present, although both parks will reportedly feature a life-size and controllable model of the Millennium Falcon.

Specifics about the hotel were revealed recently at Star Wars Celebration (an annual fan gathering). It will be at least 2019 before Star Wars buffs can head to Florida to live out their sci-fi fantasies.

Until then, the best alternative is Hotel Sidi Driss in Tunisia, which fans will recognise as Luke Skywalker's childhood home on Tattooine. Many of the original props are still on display in and around the hotel.
