    We are excited to be visiting Galaxy's Edge for the first time, and want to build a droid! We are also flying - are there options available to ship our droid home from Disneyland?

    Bright Suns, Kameron, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I’m so excited for your journey to a galaxy far, far away… it will be here before you know it!

    There’s nothing like seeing the Millennium Falcon in person for the first time… visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is an experience you’ll never forget! Plus, you’ll have the chance to experience Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening on January 17!

    I checked with a Cast Member, and was told you shouldn’t have a problem shipping your droid unit home domestically upon completion. He recommended letting the Cast Member at the Droid Depot cash register know that you’d prefer to ship your droid so that they can guide you through the process. (You’ll pay for the droid-building experience before you actually begin building your droid). 

    When I first visited Batuu with my son this past summer, the first thing he wanted to do was build a custom astromech droid unit at Droid Depot! We loved the entire process, from selecting the droid’s components from a conveyor belt, to the assembly process, all the way to the activation. He got such a thrill out of seeing his new droid come to life! Once your droid is built, you can purchase a special backpack to carry it in, and continue customizing it with optional accessories to change its personality. It’s fun to watch your droid interact with other droids and elements throughout Black Spire Outpost!

    I recommend making a reservation for Droid Depot online or using the Disneyland app. I also recommend making a reservation for the local watering hole, Oga’s Cantina at the Disneyland Resort, featuring both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. I love sipping on a Yub Nub while listening to the beats of DJ R-3X. My son loves the Blue Bantha

    Last, but certainly not least, no trip to Batuu is complete without visiting the Milk Stand and sampling the Blue or Green Milk. You can even mix the two for a refreshing concoction!

    May the Force be with you, Kameron!

Greetings from sunny California! I live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder (and now a Magic Key Passholder) for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids ages 5-10, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Learn More About Kristin
