The proximity would make this really good employee housing for Hollywood Studios.
Nobody is gonna want to book a premium stay in those existing rooms considering they have no windows, no balcony, and are smaller (square-footage wise) than the rooms at the All-Star resorts. They're about the same size as Carnival Cruise Line's standard balcony rooms, which are small at roughly 180 square feet. The Park View Studios at the Contemporary are expensive because the resort is in easy walking distance to Magic Kingdom's front gate and the rooms themselves being situated on the upper floors where it gives you a nice view of the park from your balcony. The Galactic Starcruiser hotel is only about 3 floors tall and even if they were to modify the rooms and add windows, one side of the hotel might get crappy views of the DHS's parking lot and the backstage areas of Galaxy's Edge.
Yea there could be a ton of in park exclusives - you could add in preferred reservations at places. Keep the meals in the hotel exclusive to the hotel as well. I think it’s completely possible to build enough exclusivity into it that you can keep the value there easily.There are other ways they could build in value, as well. Off the top of my head, they could give guests exclusive early entry; a guaranteed, free LL for Smugglers and/or Rise; an included light saber or droid experience; or something at Oga’s. I’m not guessing at the likelihood, just throwing it out there that this hotel has options for premium experience.
Theres some rumors it was closing in Dec for rewriting on the storyline anyhow, just my thoughts but could Disney have suddenly closed it just to get the vloggers to book a voyage before it goes away "forever", and at full price since all discounts will be eliminated when booking resumes? I mean ive seen many mention hoping to book that final voyage already. They love using FOMO anyhow for everything so why would this be any diffrent? I mean its their basic marketing for everything, build massive hype and limit product to drive people to do almost anything to get it.......lookat the popcorn bucket craze.
