    Hi We are travelling to Disney world in two weeks time and are thinking of getting a savi lightsaber, however we aren’t sure how to bring it back to the UK. What options do we have? Thanks in advance Michael

    Bright Suns Michael,

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m so happy that you are here, and I can help you today. If I had to pick my favorite area at Walt Disney World Resort, I would, hands down, say Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. I love strolling through Batuu and living out my Jedi dreams. As someone who has created not one but two lightsabers with the Gatherers at Savi’s Workshop, I can attest that the experience is out-of-this-world!

    Transporting your treasured lightsaber to your home in a galaxy far, far away called Antrim is important to plan for. Unfortunately, souvenir shipping from Walt Disney World Resort is still unavailable to non-domestic Guests, which means you cannot ship a lightsaber to the UK at this time. Your best option for getting it home is to travel with it via airplane or arrange to send it via FedEx or UPS. Lightsabers are around 40” in length (depending on the specific hilt and other accessories), so they tend to fit nicely in an overhead compartment and can count towards your carry-on allowance. As someone who is always looking to save a little money, this option allows you not to have to use any additional credits during your vacation.

    If you don’t want to tote your lightsaber through Orlando International Airport and prefer to ship it home to Antrim, your best bet for this will be FedEx or UPS. With many locations near Walt Disney World Resort, you can conveniently arrange for your Lightsaber to be shipped to your home address. One of my fellow international panelists has utilized this option in the past and has had great success, so it is definitely a great alternative if you would like to use it!

    I hope this was helpful, Michael! Please come back and see us if there is anything else we can help you with.

    Happy Planning and May the Force Be With You,

    Ashley F.
