    Hi from Ireland. I know these are uncertain times but we are continuing to plan our August visit just in case. I have been trying to book the Driod Depot for the past month but neither the MDE app or webpage will allow me to book. Can you offer any advice?

    Bright Suns Lorna!

    It’s so nice to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m even more excited to hEAR that you will be visiting a Galaxy Far Far Away very soon. My sister brought home an Astromech Unit on her most recent trip, and she has officially become one of the family members. We love the new BB-series unit that rolls its way around my house! 

    I was looking at the reservation availability at Droid Depot and I am able to see that you can reserve a time beginning June 1, 2020. The calendar shows open dates through October 10, 2020. Since you are visiting in August, it seems like you are good to go ahead and reserve your building time! Simply click “check availability” and sign in to your My Disney Experience account to search and select the date and time you wish to.

    While you wait to build your Astromech Unit, I highly recommend dining at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. There you will find delicious meals prepared using ingredients gathered from all across the galaxy. It’s the perfect way to start your adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Plus all Resistance Fighters, like yourself, need fuel to defeat The First Order on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

    I hope this has helped you plan your day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I cannot wait to hEAR about your journey through the planet of Batuu. Be sure to visit us again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any more questions as you continue to plan!
