    I have a question? We plan on doing a droid build and 1 person doing a lightsaber build. Has anyone ever had a problem bring them back home on a plane. How would you pack them without them going off? How do you bring the lightsaber home.

    Galactic greetings, Crystal, and welcome back to planDisney! It’s great to see you back here with another question!

    It sounds like you’re planning a visit to a galaxy far, far away, with a special stop in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu… you’re in for a real treat! Building a custom astromech droid unit at Droid Depot and a custom lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop -- Handbuilt Lightsabers are two of my favorite interactive experiences at Disneyland Park

    Now to figure out the best way for you to get your newly-acquired items safely to your home planet. You have several options, starting with bringing your Resistance merchandise on the airplane home with you. I did some research, and it sounds like most new droid owners who bring their droids on the plane decide to bring it as a carry-on item and store it in the overhead bin. If you build a BB-unit, I recommend separating the parts so that the head, body, and interior motor can all be packed without rattling around or getting damaged in transit. You can also purchase a handy droid backpack from Droid Depot to use as your carry-on!

    As for the custom lightsaber, this can also be taken on the airplane as a carry-on and stored in the overhead compartment. The 31” lightsaber blade can be removed from the hilt (the base) to make this possible. It’s always a good idea to call your airline ahead of time or check their website to make sure this option would work for you, though.

    Personally, I’ve carried both of these items around Batuu and throughout the other lands of Disneyland Park, and found that it can be a bit difficult to carry them your entire Disney day. So, if you plan to bring them home on the airplane, I recommend taking advantage of the complimentary package check service, which can hold your items until you’re ready to leave, or having them sent back to your hotel if you’re staying on property at a Disneyland Resort Hotel. Just ask the Cast Members about either of these options at both check-outs.

    Another option is to have both items shipped back to your home planet. Here’s how it works: When purchasing your lightsaber and droid at the register of Savi’s Workshop and Droid Depot, let the Cast Members know that you’d like to ship the items home upon completion. When you’re done, a Cast Member will help you box up your lightsaber and droid, and then you can take them to First Order Cargo (located just around the corner from both locations, near the First Order TIE echelon), where a Cast Member can assist you with shipping options. It’s as easy as that!

    I hope this information helps you plan your galactic travels, Crystal! I can’t wait for you to find out if you’re Team Blue or Green Milk at the Milk Stand in Galaxy’s Edge… I’m definitely Team Blue Milk! I think this will be the perfect refreshment for your crew of travelers to enjoy on a warm summer day!

    May the Force be with you,
