    My daughter really wants to build a light saber during our upcoming trip to Disney World, however we are flying from out of state, how do I get it home on the airplane?

    Bright Suns, Jeana!

    I am excited that your daughter wants to build her Lightsaber at Savi's Workshop Handbuilt Lightsaber in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios! I had the opportunity to make a Lightsaber at Savi's Workshop with my son and his wife on my Disney vacation in November 2021, and I can tell you firsthand that it was amazing! It was a Star Wars religious experience!

    Once your Jedi daughter completes her Lightsaber masterpiece, there are a few ways to get the Lightsaber back to your home. The first way is to bring it on the plane as a carry-on item. You can detach the Lightsaber blade from the Lightsaber hilt or body to make it a little less long. The other option is to pay to ship it to your home. Some Resorts and stores in theme parks offer mail service shipping (United States Postal Service). I recommend that you ship the Lightsaber blade only because it is lighter and the longest part of the Lightsaber. The Lightsaber body weighs at least 2.5 pounds, so it would be best if you put it in your carry-on luggage to save on postage costs.

    My son, my daughter-in-law, and I shipped our three Lightsaber blades back to our home and took the Lightsaber bodies with us on the plane in our carry-on luggage. It worked great! When the Lightsaber blades arrived, we reunited the Lightsaber blades with the Lightsaber bodies and were ready for epic Lightsaber battles!

    Til the Spire!
