    Bright Suns! I am very anxiously planning my first trip to Batuu. As a Star Wars fan, I was wondering if I (as an adult) am allowed to bring in my own lightsaber from home into Hollywood Studios, as I recall them being banned from the parks at one time.

    Bright Suns, Tara!

    As a shameless Star Wars enthusiast myself, I’ll tell you this: Batuu will shift your reality in an unforgettable way. From the moment you begin your transition from the “real world” to Black Spire Outpost, you’ll feel the Force surrounding every inch of your person. As you enter, listen to the enchanting Batuu tunes seeping from the markets, follow the local aromas to galactic feasts, and watch your back for Imperial Starfleet foes.

    From what I understand, after speaking before the Jedi Council, lightsabers are currently permitted into Disney’s Hollywood Studios (and the other Walt Disney World theme parks). If you’re worried that the particular lightsaber you wield might not meet galactic criteria, you can view the Property Rules for more information. As long as your lightsaber isn’t sharp at the end, you should be in the clear.

    Because of the design of most rides within Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you may want to bring a lightsaber which retracts into the hilt for easy storage. A small backpack in which to store your lightsaber would be a handy as well. But watch out for Ewoks! They’re notorious for rifling through belongs! “Yub Nub!”

    If you’ve been searching the galaxy for your next lightsaber, Savi’s Workshop is calling out to you, Tara! This shop continues ancient Force traditions. I won’t spoil the experience, but, if you love the galaxy far, far away as much as I do, you’ll make it your top priority to craft your own lightsaber and harness the Force.

    We’d love to hear from you again, Tara. We’re always here to help!

    Til the Spire.
