    During the lightsaber build at Hollywood Studios, is there a way that the cast member could select the crystal and have the builder not see it? Thinking of doing this as a gender reveal.

    Bright Suns Tara,

    Welcome to planDisney! First, let me say, Congratulations on your little Mouseketeer! Walt Disney World Resort was a huge part of my pregnancy last year, and including it in a gender reveal sounds practically perfect in every way.

    I've heard a lot of gender reveal ideas, Tara, but yours is definitely my favorite! As a Jedi myself, being able to encourage the Force to build within my little one sounds perfect! I certainly cannot guarantee that the Gatherers will be able to assist you in making your dreams come true for a gender reveal, but it certainly doesn't hurt to try. When you check in, I recommend asking the Cast Member if they can speak to the Gatherers in advance and help you with your request. They certainly will pass that along to you if they can do so. Just make sure to give them all the information they need in advance so that they can best assist you. Another option is to pre-purchase a Kyber Crystal at Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities before your appointment at Savi's Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers. You can ask one of the Cast Members to help you select the Kyber Crystal that reveals the gender and either place that in your lightsaber during the building experience or have someone put it in the lightsaber after the experience. Then once the sun goes down at Disney's Hollywood Studios, head over to the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy and find a Disney PhotoPass Photographer. They will then be able to take a picture of your reaction when you illuminate your lightsaber and reveal your gender.

    I hope this was helpful, Tara, and you can make your gender-reveal dreams come true. I wish I could help you celebrate because I'm sure it will be out of this world. If you enlist a Cast Member's help and they make your experience extra magical, don't forget that you can compliment the Cast Member through your My Disney Experience mobile app!

    Happy Planning, and Congratulations again,

    Ashley F.
