    Hi, we are planning to visit WDW in October. I am just wondering what/where a Disney Gift Card can be spent on/in. My husband would like to build a lightsaber, can it be used to do that or would a credit card be needed for that?

    Greetings Pippa and welcome to planDisney!

    Savi's Workshop, located in Star Wars Galaxy Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, is an incredibly popular event.  Your husband is going to have a blast working with Savi’s Gatherers to design and construct a custom lightsaber that reflects his path in the galaxy!

    I am pleased to let you know that the Disney Gift Card can be used almost everywhere at Walt Disney World, including Savi's Workshop.  Due to the popularity of this workshop, I highly recommend that you make an advanced reservation.  When doing so, a credit card is needed at the time of the booking to hold the reservation, however, payment isn't due until you arrive at the workshop.  At that time, you can use your Disney Gift Card for payment.

    Pippa, Star Wars: Galaxy Edge has some incredible photo opportunities.  I'd like to suggest that you and your husband find the Disney PhotoPass Photographers after attending Savi's Workshop.  They are located in a few locations throughout Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The Disney PhotoPass Photographers will know how to get the best pictures of you and your husband with his new lightsaber!

    In case you are wondering how you will get the lightsaber home; I checked the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) website and lightsabers are allowed as a carry-on item.  Please confirm with your airline.

    I hope you find this information helpful.  Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.  May the Force be with you in October!
