We are so super excited to be bringing you along ‘through the lens of this livestreamer’ to the opening day of Star Wars Galaxy Edge. The excitement has really become even more real now that reservations are open for the three hottest spots in the Land of Batuu.
As of right now, all three of these experiences are available to book 180 days in advance on Disney World’s website (through February 3, as of publishing) — links below! The reservation page for each experience specifies that reservations are highly recommended, and only Droid Depot specifies that the Depot “may also accommodate walk-ins each day, subject to availability”. As we experienced on the opening day of Star Wars Galaxy Edge in California, there is a real reason that Disney has come up with this reservation system.
Savi’s Workshop — Handbuilt Lightsabers
If you’ve always wanted to build your own lightsaber, you’ll be able to do so at Savi’s Workshop — but it’ll cost you a nice chunk of change! The experience costs $199.99 plus tax per builder, and you must provide a credit card guarantee when you make your reservation. If you need to cancel your reservation (which in nontransferable), you must do so at least one day in advance, or you will be charged the full amount. Note that you (and up to one guest) may arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to your reservation time slot and that late arrivals may not be accommodated.
For those of you who were along with us at Oga’s Cantina in Disneyland, you know that it was a very fun and imaginative place but very, very crowded. Just as it was at Disneyland’s Galaxy Edge, there is a 45-minute time limit for this experience, and guests may enjoy up to two alcoholic beverages. Also, as with other Advance Dining Reservations at Disney World, if you need to cancel your reservation, you must do so at least one day prior to avoid the $10 per person cancellation fee. According to Disney, seating is not guaranteed upon entry, and separate parties may be seated together. Large parties may be separated as well.
One of the most fun things that we did at Star Wars Galaxy Edge in Disneyland was to make our own purple droid. Picking out the special parts for him (or her) and then being able to get a “personality” chip so that they come to life, was one of the many highlights of the Galaxy Edge experience. If you want to bring home your very own droid, you can build one at Droid Depot! This experience costs $99.99 plus taxper builder, and each builder may bring up to one guest. Reservations are nontransferable, and you must cancel at least one day in advance or you will be charged the full cost of the experience.
