    How long is a typical droid-building experience in Galaxy's Edge? We have reservations for our 2 kids, but it's 1 hour before our character lunch (which we won't want to miss!). Should we reschedule? Thanks!

    Hi, Stephanie!  Or as they say on the planet Batuu, "Bright suns!"

    Droid Depot at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has the droids you are looking for.  The Droid Depot workshop has all of  the parts you will need to design and assemble either a BB-Series or R-Series astromech droid.  Since your droid will interact with other droids and various Bluetooth enabled devices throughout this immersive new land, your  droid will be the perfect traveling companion as you explore Black Spire Outpost.  Did you know that for an additional fee, you can purchase a personality chip for your droid?  By purchasing a personality chip, you can choose whether your droid will show allegiance to the First Order or if it will support the Resistance.

    I would plan on spending approximately 20-30 minutes building your droid.  If your dining reservation is for a restaurant within Disney's Hollywood Studios, you should have no trouble arriving on time.  However, if you need to travel to another Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or theme park for your meal, you will probably want to consider rescheduling one of these experiences.  Since crowds and traffic can be unpredictable, to be on the safe side, I usually recommend allowing 60-90 minutes to travel from one place to another throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.  Although I don't think it will buy you enough time in this instance, please also keep in mind that the Disney Minnie Van Service is a great alternative mode of transportation when you need to travel around Walt Disney World Resort property quickly.

    Stephanie, I hope you will be able to fit all of your must-do experiences into your vacation itinerary.  If we can answer any other questions for you, please visit us again.  May the Force be with you!
