    Bright suns, Denise!

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing us your questions. It looks like you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort this summer - how exciting! I'm happy to help you plan a magical and memorable day at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Guests with valid theme park admission and theme park reservations can make Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers (and other Enchanting Extras Collection offerings) reservations 60 days in advance. While it may be possible to walk in or obtain same-day reservations, I highly recommend booking this unique experience ahead of time as it's incredibly popular! When you arrive at Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, you'll be paired with one of Savi's "Gatherers" who will instruct you on how to create your custom lightsaber. Please note that the experience is limited to the builder plus one Guest and that at least one member of the group must be over the age of 14.

    Denise, if you haven't tried out Disney Genie+ service yet, then I encourage you to check it out during your visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios! This service will allow you Lightning Lane access to many of your favorite rides and attractions to make the most of your time in the theme park. (Please note that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is not offered through Disney Genie+ service, but that Lightning Lane entrance is available for individual purchase in My Disney Experience.) The great thing about this service is the flexibility it offers - members of your group who purchase Disney Genie+ service will be able to ride attractions together or divide and conquer! To take advantage of this service, first, be sure that your theme park admission and theme park reservations are linked to your My Disney Experience account. You can purchase Disney Genie+ service on the day of your theme park visit by selecting "My Disney Genie Day" in the mobile app. Then, in the "My Day" tab, scroll down and select "Get Disney Genie+ Service." Once purchased, you'll be able to reserve your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 a.m. for yourself and any other Guests that are connected to you in My Disney Experience and have valid theme park admission and reservations for that day. Once you've redeemed your first Lightning Lane experience (or two hours after you've reserved your first experience), you'll be eligible to make another selection.

    I hope that this information helps you to make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth, Denise. Please feel free to stop by anytime with additional vacation planning questions - my friends and I here at planDisney are happy to help!

    May the force be with you,
