    My sons are interested in building custom lightsabers at Savis Workshop. Do you happen to know if they can play with the lightsaber when they get home? In other words, can they hit them together and “play” as Jedi’s? Or are they too delicate and may break?

    Hello Kristin! Welcome back to planDisney! I am glad to see that you find our panel to be so helpful when planning your visits to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    I have three Jedi living in my house! My wife and I have witnessed many lightsaber duels over the years! While the lightsabers constructed by Padawans in Savi's Workshop at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge are incredibly realistic and great for display, imaginative play, and being the coolest kid in the neighborhood, I don't recommend using them for duels between your sons. The technology and craftmanship that go into forging such a unique item will most likely not tolerate the duels of your sons! However, they would make for amazing costuming and role-playing for your sons!

    Kristin, one event that is temporarily unavailable, but that I want you to keep an eye on is Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple! This event provides younglings with the opportunity to learn the way of the Jedi and become one with the Force! After receiving training, participants will come face-to-face with the Dark Side of the Force! In doing so, they will engage in their very own duel with either Darth Vader, Darth Maul, or another member of the Dark Side! This remains one of the happiest memories that my kids have from our visits to Disney's Hollywood Studios! Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple is extremely popular and in high demand when it is available! Registration takes place as soon as Disney's Hollywood Studios opens for the day. Participants must register in-person with their parent/guardian. It is free of charge, but that is subject to change. If this returns in time for your visit, please look into this adventure for your younglings!

    Kristin, I want to share one other piece of advice! Once your sons return to Earth following their visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, be sure to visit Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway! This is the newest attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios! Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will take you on an adventure into the cartoon world of Mickey Mouse! And, with Goofy serving as your engineer, the ride aboard the Runamuck Railway is unlike any train ride you've ever experienced! Be sure to look out for the tornado and don't lose your feathers like poor Donald!
