    My daughter will be building a droid at the Droid Depot during our trip. Is there an area to leave the Droid when we get on rides? Can you take the Droid on rides with you? Not sure how to plan for carrying the droid around all afternoon. Thanks!

    Bright suns, Sarah! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question!

    In less than one month, you will be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth, ready to begin your magical family adventure! I am SO excited for you and your daughter! I'm thrilled to hear that your daughter will be building her own little sidekick at Droid Depot at the Walt Disney World Resort! When my daughter and I made our custom Astromech Units during our first trip to Batuu, it was SUCH a fun and special experience that I will never forget. It's one of my favorite Disney memories! From the moment that our droids were brought to life, we have had two new family members who continue to travel with us on almost every trip to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Let's chat about how to manage yours!

    Once your daughter has built her droid, she will receive a carrying box for transporting her new sidekick throughout the planet and the rest of the park. When we built ours, we purchased the carrying backpack so that we could easily carry our little guys around on our backs, and they could easily interact with other droids and areas of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. If the backpacks are available, I do recommend purchasing one, as it makes carrying the droid around the park a breeze! 

    Your new droid will absolutely be able to ride the attractions with you! In fact, when our droids were brand new, they traveled from Batuu for their very first ride on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith (two times in a row!). Every time we bring our droid buddies to Disney's Hollywood Studios with us, they safely sit by our feet as we ride all of the attractions! 

    If you don't feel like carrying your droid around the park with you, no worries! There are lockers available for rent at Crossroads of the World at the park entrance. Since only the ancients know if your daughter will choose a BB-series or R-series unit, make sure that the unit fits properly before you rent either a small or large locker. While prices are subject to change, currently, the price to rent a small locker is $10 and the price for a large is $12. 

    While you are exploring the planet of Batuu, surely you will work up an out-of-this-world appetite! Be sure to try two of my favorite snacks/meals at Walt Disney World: a Ronto Wrap from Ronto Roasters and the Felucian Kefta and Hummus Garden Spread from Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. You can mobile order, too! YUM!

    Til the Spire, Sarah! I'm wishing you magical memories on Batuu and your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have.

    May the Spires Keep You,
