    Can I use a Disney gift card to pay for Savi's Workshop-Handbuilt lightsabers? Also I have a 9:05am reservation for Savi's but the park opens at 9:00am...Will I be able to get into the park early so that I make it to my reservation on time??

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, Sue Ann. We're so glad to see you again! And we're certainly happy to help you plan your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

     A reservation at Savi's Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is a force-filled experience. With the help of the "gatherers," you'll design and construct a custom lightsaber that reflects your path in the galaxy. My son just got to experience Savi's Workshop after patiently waiting for nearly three years. It was all he hoped it would be! I know you'll enjoy it as much as he did.

     You ask excellent questions about your upcoming reservation. To start, yes, you may certainly use a Disney Gift Card to pay for your experience at Savi's Workshop. The payment will be due upon your arrival. Savi's Workshop accepts Disney Gift Cards, cash, and credit cards. My son actually split his payment when he was there last month; he used the balance of a Disney Gift Card he had and then paid the difference with cash he had saved for the experience. And there's no need to worry about arriving on time for your reservation. When you arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you'll see signage for early morning reservations. Stop and chat with a Cast Member holding an early morning reservation sign. They'll direct you on your way to Batuu! (I also want to mention that if you're a Guest of the Disney Resorts Collection, you can take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry. This allows you to enter the theme parks 30-minutes before official park opening.)

     The Disney PhotoPass Photographers throughout Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge are phenomenal. Be sure to take advantage of these photo opportunities after your reservation at Savi's Workshop. Disney PhotoPass Photographers will know how to get the very best shots of you and your new lightsaber!

     I hope this was helpful, Sue Ann. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
