    Hi there! If we build a droid at Disneyland Anaheim, can we ship it back to Canada and if so, what would be the approximate cost?

    Bright suns, Simone!

    A visit to the planet Batuu is made all the more worthwhile with the opportunity to build your own custom astromech droid from Droid Depot. My family built and adopted two of these fun friends to bring home with us too.

    Yes, international shipping is available, even from a galaxy far, far away. Shipping prices are determined not by the size or weight of items shipped but by the purchase price of the merchandise. Prices are subject to change, so it is best to inquire at First Order Cargo for the current shipping rates. (Don’t worry, I’m pretty sure that members of the Resistance may have infiltrated the First Order Legion 709 that manages the First Order Cargo operation. So I’m hopeful even your Resistance-aligned droids will be kept safe in their hands.)

    My planDisney pal Jacqueline visits Disney Parks frequently from Canada as well. Jacqueline reminded me that the shipping company hired for delivery to Canadian destinations will charge duty and brokerage fees in addition to the shipping charges required by the Disneyland Resort. If you would like to avoid those additional expenses, I’d like to share with you some additional information about your new droid so you can make a more informed decision about how to transport it home. As I mentioned before, we brought home two droids from Droid Depot. One is a BB-style droid and the other an R-style droid. Our BB-style droid is approximately 7”x7”x10” (about 18 cm x 18 cm x 26 cm). And our R-style droid is approximately 8.5”x9”x12” (about 22 cm x 18 cm x 31 cm). Droid size can vary based on the style and accessories selected. Our droids also came with a carrying box that measures just a little bit wider than the droids at nearly 11” (28 cm) square and is about 18” (46 cm) tall. We found that we could fit the carrying box inside some of our larger pieces of luggage. And the droids without the boxes could fit in our larger carry-on luggage.

    Tony’s Tip: During your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Join the Resistance, or the First Order, or strike off on your own as you vie for control of the Black Spire Outpost in “Outpost Control” using the Star Wars: Datapad. It’s included in the free Play Disney Parks app. At home, you may also wish to download the Droid Depot app, which allows you to use your mobile device to unlock even more capabilities of your custom astromech units.

    May the Force be with you as you explore the Outer Rim, Simone!
