    I am trying to make a reservation for the Wild African Trek for 4 Adults between 2nd May and 14th May 2024. I am also trying to get a reservation to build a lightsaber for 2 adults between the same dates.

    Welcome to planDisney, Charlotte! With your window opening to book Enchanting Extras and advance Dining Reservations, it means your trip is just around the riverbend. So exciting! We are here to help you navigate the waters. 

    You can reserve activities from the Enchanting Extras Collection and dining reservations starting 60 days before your check-in date for up to the first 10 days of your stay. The reservations open around 6 am Eastern. You can book dining online or on the My Disney Experience App, but Enchanting Extras are only booked online or by calling. With a May 2 date, these will become available for you starting March 3.

    Wild Africa Trek is on my wish list for my family this fall. You can reserve your spot on this phenomenal adventure on the website. First, make sure you are logged into your My Disney Experience account to be able to take advantage of planning for those first 10 days at once. From the Wild Africa Trek page, pick your desired date (or range of dates) and select "Check Availability." Follow the prompts to enter the number of guests, select from the available times, and check out to purchase your spots.

    The process is the same for Savi's Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers. From the website, select "Check Availability" and enter the range of dates you would like to head to the Black Spire Outpost and see what the Gatherers have found that may help you build the weapon of the Jedi. Follow the prompts again to see availability and reserve your chance to build a custom lightsaber. 

    On the day you venture to this edge of the Galaxy, make sure to include time after your covert lightsaber-building mission to greet Darth Vader at Star Wars Launch Bay. If you are a Disney Visa cardholder, you can show your credentials to access a special line for Force Sensitive people and get a photo included as part of this adventure. 

    I hope all goes well for you to explore the savannah and the Outer Rim on your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Please come back to planDisney with any other questions.

    Jambo, and May the Force be with You!
