    I have signed up to make a lightsaber at Savi's but want to be put on the queue for the Rise of the Resistance. What happens if we are called when we are due to make the lightsaber? Do we have to choose one or the other?

    Hi, Philip!

    Thanks so much for sending this great question to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Not to worry! The Force will be strong in you as you can experience BOTH Savi's Workshop-Handbuilt Lightsabers at the Walt Disney World Resort AND Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. My family and I visited Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, an All-New Land just two weeks after Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opened, and all plans worked out well. Yours will, too!

    When Guests join a Boarding Group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, they can enjoy the rest of Disney's Hollywood Studios, or any other venue, until their Boarding Group has been called to join the Resistance. Once your Boarding Group is called, you have two hours to arrive at the attraction's entrance near Black Spire Outpost. Keep an eye on your My Disney Experience mobile app so that you'll see which Groups are currently invited to board.

    On the day that we toured, my son had an 11:30 reservation to build his lightsaber at Savi's. The entire experience is perfect, and we were finished in less than 1/2 hour. This means that you will be able to join your Boarding Group within that two hour window, AND will be able to handcraft that lightsaber that is perfect for you. 

    Send us more questions as you plan your visit to Batuu, Philip. We love to help!
