    What happens if I am building a light saber at Savi’s workshop and my boarding group for Rise of the Resistance is called? Do I lose my opportunity to go on that ride?

    Galactic greetings, Rachel, and welcome to planDisney! I sense the Force is strong with you and your upcoming journey to a galaxy far, far away!

    You're going to have a blast becoming one of the newest recruits for the Resistance this November on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! I can’t wait for you to experience the thrill of this unique attraction! I can understand your concern regarding your Boarding Group being called at the same time as your reservation at Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers at the Walt Disney World Resort. But, I’m here to tell you not to worry! Once your Boarding Group is called, you’ll have a block of time to return to the entrance of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance for this epic adventure. Luckily, your experience at Savi’s Workshop shouldn’t take longer than about 30 minutes, so, even if your Boarding Group gets called before your reservation, you should still have plenty of time to return to the attraction. I recommend keeping an eye on the Boarding Groups throughout the day by using the My Disney Experience mobile app. That way, you’ll have an idea where the Boarding Group process is when you’re about to head in for your reservation at Savi’s Workshop. If you're at all concerned that you may be cutting it too close, mention the potential issue to one of the Cast Members upon check-in at Savi's Workshop to find out what they recommend.

    Customizing your own legendary lightsaber is an experience you’ll never forget! The process begins when you meet with one of Savi’s Gatherers outside of the Workshop. Afterward, you’ll choose between one of four hilt themes, including Peace and Justice, Power and Control, Elemental Nature, and Protection and Defense. Then, it’s time to select the heart of your lightsaber, known as the kyber crystal, and assemble the hilt. The Gatherers will then connect the hilt to the lightsaber blade, and it will be time to activate! I can’t wait for you to become one with the Force!

    Afterward, be sure to stop by the Milk Stand to declare your allegiance to Team Blue Milk or Team Green Milk… I’m definitely Team Blue Milk!

    Wishing you a safe galactic journey, Rachel. As they say in Batuu, ’til the spire!
