    Me and my 2 daughters (6 & 11) getting ready to visit WDW in April. We want make one droid unit. It says each person can only bring 1 guest with them. Could I have my girls with me inside? I RSVD’s already just in case. Thank you for your help!

    Bright suns, Cecilia!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu!

    I am so glad that you were able to make a reservation to build your own custom astromech droid at Droid Depot!  Your droid will make the perfect traveling companion for you and your daughters as you explore Black Spire Outpost.  Once activated, your droid can interact with other astromech droids and various Bluetooth-enabled elements and devices as you carry it throughout the land.  Personality chips are available to purchase at an additional charge to further customize your droid's interactive responses.  One thing is for certain, Droid Depot has the droids you are looking for!

    Due to limited space, the droid building experience at Droid Depot is restricted to the builder and one guest, and at least one person in the party must be age 14 or older.  During the building experience, other guests will be inside the Droid Depot retail shop, which is separated from the building area by a waist-high barrier.  Guests are able to observe the building experience from behind this barrier, but only one guest may accompany each builder at their building station.

    I would recommend speaking to a Droid Depot Cast Member when you arrive for your reservation to see how to best handle your situation.  Even though your girls are both under the age of 14, the Cast Members might let them build together if you were willing to stand at the barrier to keep an eye on them.  In fact, some of the building stations are very close to the barrier, so it would be easy for you to observe from there.  This would, of course, be at the Cast Member's discretion, but they always try to do whatever they can to accommodate a parent traveling alone with their children.

    If you and your girls are hoping to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance during your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news on accessing this epic new attraction.  Currently, a virtual queue system with boarding groups is being utilized for guests wishing to ride.

    As you prepare for your trip, you may also want to take a look at these Disney Parks Moms Panel tips for making the most of your Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge visit.  While you're at it, you can also check out the adventure that a few of my fellow panelists recently had on Millennium Falcon: Smuggler Run.
