Disney has shared the first details about the upcoming Star Wars hotel "experience" which we now know will be named Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. This expansion invites guests to embark on a two-night adventure aboard a glamorous starship. During this first-of-its-kind vacation experience, guests will interact with characters and become an active participant in immersive stories that unfold over the course of an unforgettable galactic journey on board the starcruiser (to be called the Halcyon). This experience has been likened to a cruise ship experience, and will be all-inclusive, but pricing information has not been shared yet. 

5. New Marvel Comics exhibit now open at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Hot on the heels of announcing Kit Harrington joining the cast of The Eternals, Walt Disney Presents at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is celebrating this comic series and its creator Jack Kirby. Guests who visit this special exhibition can see the original print issue #1 comic book that started it all as well as unique photos and artifacts inspired by Jack’s process. Guests can also pose with a few of the many characters from The Eternals comic series in front of a special photo wall as well.

6. Morocco Gallery of Arts and History at Epcot now closed


The Gallery of Arts and History exhibit closed this week at Epcot's Morocco Pavilion, and will remain shuttered for an undetermined amount of time while Disney prepares this space for an exciting new exhibit that will be coming soon to this pavilion. No details about what kind of exhibit this will be (or when it might open) have been provided.
