    The Droid Depot says the age recommendation is 3+ but can my almost 3yo still do this? We’ve done the car builder activity and he loved it! So I know he will love it I just want to make sure before I reserve that Disney will allow him to do it.

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

    Droid Depot at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has the droids you are looking for.  During the Droid Depot experience, guests can construct either a BB-series or R-series droid.  You will be able to choose parts for your droid from a conveyor belt, assemble it, and bring it to life in an activation station.  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.  Your droid will make the perfect traveling companion as you explore Black Spire Outpost.

    The droid building experience at Droid Depot is limited to the builder and one guest, so you and your young Padawan may work on constructing an astromech droid together.  While the age recommendation for building a droid at Droid Depot is 3 years and up, little ones can certainly participate in this experience with an adult helper.  Since this is a popular experience, you will want to secure your spot prior to your visit.  Droid Depot reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance.

    Before your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, be sure to download Star Wars: Datapad on the Play Disney Parks mobile app to enhance the interactive nature of this immersive new land.  Also, you may want to check out these Disney Parks Moms Panel tips for making the most out of your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge to get you ready for your adventure in a galaxy far, far away.
