Walt Disney World to Launch a $500 Star Wars Augmented Reality Experience

Disney will be  launching a $500 in-room celebration later this month, featuring an augmented reality Star Wars Rebels interactive adventure.

Star Wars Rebels 1

The interactive adventure will be available for guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels.  The adventure will begin with the resort room decorated with an Imperial recruitment banner. The story goes that the Rebel Alliance has infiltrated the room, leaving gear and tech to help on a secret mission for the Rebellion. Through augmented reality on a smartphone, Ezra Bridger (from the TV series, Star Wars Rebels) guides the players 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, guests will 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.

Theme park tickets are required and not included, as is an iPhone or Android device.

Guests can order the Star Wars Rebels Interactive Adventure now online, available starting August 15th.
