Gone are the days when travellers checked into hotels with the sole purpose of sleeping. It seems everyone wants a bit extra with their holiday, be it a gardening course, an onsite brewery or a window onto the underwater world. The latest addition to the globe's accommodation wonders is an immersive Stars Wars hotel, which will debut as part of Walt Disney World's new 360 vacation concept in Orlando.

We're happy to report that the resort is taking the immersive bit very seriously. Upon check-in, guests become a citizen of the galaxy, which means that, every minute of every day of your stay, you're a part of whichever Star Wars story is happening around you.

Chances are, you'll find yourself helping Luke Skywalker in his struggle against the Galactic Empire, being rescued by R2D2 or facing off Darth Vader. And it sounds like dress up will be included and required.

For now, the hotel is in concept stage only. As you'd expect, the rooms will be themed and several spaces will likely be straight out of the movies. You'll have to be committed to the experience, as the "every minute of every day" comment may well include sleeping hours — the dark side never sleeps, after all.
