    How is it possible that the lightsaber experience is already booked for the next TWO MONTHS? Do you hold some back and open them up at various times?

    Bright Suns, Cindy!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am delighted to hear that you are planning to visit the planet Batuu, located in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. You and your crew are sure to have exciting adventures and make lifelong memories in this immersive new world. Be on the lookout for the First Order as they have been known to have a presence in Black Spire Outpost. This is Batuu's largest village, and Storm Troopers have been looking for members of the Resistance in the area. 

    Savi's Workshop- Handbuild Lightsabers at the Walt Disney World Resort is an incredibly popular location. Under the guidance of Gatherers, you can build a customized lightsaber in a covert workshop. Due to the size and secrecy of the shop (it must be protected from the First Order) reservations are limited and fill up quickly. Reservations can be made 60 days in advance and often sell out early in the day. If you were unable to make arrangements to meet a Gatherer and build your lightsaber I have a couple of tips for trying to secure a spot. The first to continue to check for openings. Travelers' plans change frequently, and their trip to Batuu may be delayed. If cancelation occurs the opening will be available for booking on the website almost immediately. So check back often! You can also stop by the check-in location in front of Savi's on the morning of your visit to inquire about walk-up availability. This is not a guarantee but sometimes last-minute cancellations result in an opening. Be sure to stop by early to inquire!

    Cindy, there is so much to see and explore in Batuu. I know that building a lightsaber is at the top of your list, and I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that The Force will be with you on your quest for a reservation. But I want to assure you that there is no shortage of excitement in store for your and your crew. The infamous Blue Milk can be found at the Milk Stand, and droids and familiar faces can be found all over Batuu. And of course, an epic ride on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is sure to leave a lasting impression. 

    We'll see ya real soon!
