    How much time should we schedule for making the light sabers? And including the carrying case, approximately how much do they weigh?

    Bright Suns, Kathy! That is how you will be greeted as you walk through Black Spire Outpost to get to Savi’s Workshop to meet the gatherers for your light saber experience. 

    Earlier this month, my son crafted his very own light saber as well. I was allowed to be his guest and could stand behind him while he built. I took a LOT of pictures. From the time we checked in outside, chose which light saber he would build, processed our payment, and finally going inside to build, it took around 45 minutes. 

    The experience was totally cool. At the end, the gatherers help the builders put their completed light saber into a carrying case that has a strap for over the shoulder or crossbody. It was not very heavy, and my son carried it back to the hotel room and onto the plane for our trip home. 

    Should you not want to carry the light saber home on an airplane, you can have it shipped from Batuu to your home planet for under $20. The gatherers will direct you to First Order Cargo to have the staff there fill out the proper paperwork for intergalactic shipping. 

    I might suggest trying to secure a reservation at Oga’s Cantina for after your Savi’s Workshop experience. The atmosphere is so fun, and so are the drinks. My husband loves the Fuzzy Tauntaun, where I am more of a Carbon Freeze kind of girl. 

    I hope your December visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is out-of-this-world! 

    May the Force Be With You,
