    When making a reservation for Savi's Workshop you must provide a credit card, do you have to actually pay with that credit card? I have a couple Disney gift cards I’d like to use in place of that gift card, but can I use them there to pay for my saber?

    Bright Suns, Traveler! 

    That’s probably how you’ll be greeted in Batuu, Austin. Or perhaps you’ll hear “Rising Moons”, depending on the time of day that you are visiting Black Spire Outpost. 

    Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is such an amazing immersive land! I’m sure your Star Wars-loving family will be overwhelmed with all of the super cool details throughout Batuu. And, when you see the Millennium Falcon for the first time, your mind will be blown! Be sure to find a PhotoPass photographer up the steps to the left of the ship to take some really great family pictures.

    My son is a Star Wars fan, too. He is hoping to experience building his own lightsaber with the gatherers at Savi’s Workshop on our trip in September. As far as a reservation to build your own galaxy-defending weapon, this experience requires a valid credit card when booking up to 60 days prior on the MyDisneyExperience app or website. Your credit card isn’t charged until the experience, it’s simply guaranteeing that you will be there for the experience. You can absolutely use your Disney Gift Cards to pay for your new lightsaber. 

    Be sure to visit Dok-Ondar’s Den of Iniquities once you have built your weapon. You can purchase other lightsaber customizations there, plus a variety of other out-of-this-galaxy items! 

    I was fortunate enough to be in Disney’s Hollywood Studios on the opening day of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. I was able to get a same-day reservation at the Droid Depot to build my very own R2 unit. It was so much fun! I haven’t been into Savi’s Workshop yet, so I can’t wait to see it this fall! I know you will have an amazing experience! 

    May the Force Be With You,
    P.S. Try the Blue Milk!
