Want to be part of the Rebel Alliance?
Disney plans to give you the chance with the launch of a new Star Wars augmented reality in-room experience, later this month.
Joining the Rebel Alliance does not come cheap, however. The experience may be had by Walt Disney World Resort guests for the small sum of $500!
The adventure begins with the resort room decorated with an Imperial recruitment banner. The Empire was there! Once inside, they’ll discover the Rebel Alliance has infiltrated the room, leaving gear and tech to help on a secret mission for the Rebellion. Through augmented reality on their smartphone, Ezra Bridger (from the hit TV series, Star Wars Rebels) guides them on an undercover mission. Slipping on the included Imperial Security Officer disguise, they’ll head to Star Tours®-The Adventures Continue attraction where hidden data they’re carrying will be transmitted in hyperspace. Once the mission’s completed, they’ll be directed to their resort room to unlock a mysterious box holding a rebel medal of honor, like the one in the film Star Wars: A New Hope.
