    What is the estimated price for the Build a Droid backpack? Are they worth it or just use a reg backpack? What is the best time do do Build a Droid morning, afternoon or late afternoon?

    Bright Suns, Cheri! Welcome back to planDisney! 

    I’m THRILLED to hear that you’ll be visiting Batuu next year! Be sure to catch up on the latest Star Wars shows on Disney+ before you make the journey to Black Spire Outpost! 

    Building a Droid at Droid Depot is a special experience. Crafting your very own mechanical best friend is like nothing you’ve done before! You’re going to love it! Crafting a Droid at Droid Depot is $99.99 per Droid Unit (plus tax) and it will include a carrying box. If you are interested in the backpack, that is currently a $49.99 (plus tax) add-on. 

    I really think the backpacks specifically made for the Droids are worth the extra money, and I’ll tell you why! Not only are they well made and stylish, they fit the Droid very well, they give the Droid a little peek-a-boo in the back, they have a special spot for the Droid’s remote, and they have additional space for your other belongings. Though a traditional backpack would fit your Droid, I would recommend the special “Custom Astromech Units” bag for your Droid!

    My favorite time to do special experiences (like crafting a custom Droid or Lightsaber) is in the morning right away or as your last activity at night! I like the mornings because you can spend all day traveling with your Droid, enjoying their company, and showing them around the theme park! But, nighttime reservations can be really cool because you and your Droid will be the last ones in the park! Both are incredible experiences! 

    If you have additional questions, Cheri, we hope to hear from you again at planDisney

    May the Force be with you!
