Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge
Do you have a Star Wars fan in your family? My (Donna) son cannot get enough of Star Wars. He loves everything about the newest addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.
There are 2 very unique experiences in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge that allows Guests to build their very own lightsabers.
There are two options for creating custom lightsabers at Hollywood Studios. First, there is Savi’s Workshop in Galaxy’s Edge. Not only do you build the lightsaber, but you also bring it to life with the power of kyber crystals.
You choose from 1 of 4 available hilt themes. Plus, you you receive a pin to identify which theme you chose. Then, you go through the entire process to build your custom lightsaber. This comes at a hefty price of well over $200.
That is a bit of a sticker shock especially if your young Jedi desires to play with their light saber. Recently, Monica shared a more budget friendly light saber experience with us. Be sure to check out her review of this experience at Tatooine Traders HERE.
Experience Closed for a While
Tatooine Traders is located outside of Galaxy’s Edge near the Star Tours attraction. You can find apparel, figurines, gadgets, books, and more celebrating all things Star Wars. This is also home to the budget-friendly lightsaber building experience.
Recently, many businesses across the country have experienced delays in receiving merchandise and supplies. Unfortunately, these shipping delays have also affected the merchandise that is available at Walt Disney World.
Currently the Lightsaber Building Experience is not available at Tatooine Traders due to shipping delays. At this time, Cast Members are unable to estimate when this experience may be able to reopen, but have shared that it will be closed for quite a long time.
Currently the Lightsaber Building Experience is not available at Tatooine Traders due to shipping delays.
This is quite disappointing for young Jedis. We are hoping that shipments may be received soon to allow this budget friendly experience to resume.
