    Our kids really want to build lightsabers at Savi’s—HOWEVER, resort delivery of lightsabers/souvenirs is currently unavailable, and we don’t want to have to carry the lightsabers on the Slinky Dog Dash for the rest of the day! Help? Thanks!

    Bright Suns, Hannah!

    We are pleased to learn of your intent to visit Savi's Workshop! The Gatherers are quietly awaiting your arrival. Our Resistance forces are hopeful that you will add your gifts to the Cause.

    When we built lightsabers, we did carry ours around with us for a while. The bond between builder and lightsaber is strong. We would never have shipped them once they were built. Given that Merchandise Pickup and Resort Hotel Delivery are currently unavailable, I do suggest that you have an alternate plan. The Cast Member I chatted with today suggested that you might be able to store them at a location near the main entrance. Although we did not attempt to store our lightsabers, on prior trips I have been able to store items that would not fit in a locker. I just asked a Cast Member near the locker areas for assistance. 

    I would also suggest making your reservation at Savi's Workshop for later in the day to minimize the amount of time you have to carry them around the park. If you plan to take a break in the early afternoon, consider scheduling your build just before the time you plan to return to the resort hotel. If your time on Batuu is an all-day adventure without a resort hotel break in the middle of the day, then consider scheduling your lightsaber build just before you plan to leave the park.

    Since we typically stay at a resort hotel near one or more theme parks, my husband or I have also taken items back to the room while the rest of the group continues exploring the park or takes a snack break. On our last trip, my husband walked back to our room at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to return items and then he immediately walked back to join us in the park. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, you could potentially use a ride share service like Uber or Lyft to return to your resort hotel, drop off the lightsabers (in the room or perhaps with Bell Services), and return to the park.

    Hannah, your preparation is noteworthy yet time is of the essence. Solidify your transport plans to Batuu. Confer with your travel party. Download the Star Wars: Datapad on Play Disney Parks Mobile App so that you can hack into droids, scan encrypted cargo, and translate galactic languages. Know that the First Order is unpredictable and planetary operations may change by the time of your visit. Our Resistance allies are courageously awaiting your arrival!

    Good journey,
    Donyell
