    Hi, I have an upcoming trip to Disney World and am planning on building my own lightsaber but I was wondering, as I know that you do ship items from the parks to peoples homes if you are currently shipping to Australia? Thank you! So Excited!!

    Greetings, young Padawan Shayla!

    Ah, the thrill of crafting your own lightsaber at Savi's Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge! It's a rite of passage for any aspiring Jedi or Sith. In this mystical experience, you'll delve into the secrets of kyber crystals and ancient lore, guided by the mysterious Gatherers. Whether your destiny calls you to the path of peace or power, your lightsaber will be a unique extension of your Force-wielding soul.

    Now, to your query about shipping this precious artifact to your home planet of Australia: alas, at this time, the Force does not permit direct shipping from Batuu to the land Down Under. Fear not, though! You can still transport your lightsaber safely through hyperspace (or, more accurately, your carry-on luggage). Here are a few tips to ensure your lightsaber arrives intact:

    Disassemble Your Lightsaber: If possible, take apart the hilt and blade for easier packing. The hilt can be stowed in your carry-on, while the blade, often collapsible, may fit neatly in your suitcase.

    Protective Packaging: Use bubble wrap or soft clothing to cushion your lightsaber parts. This will help protect it from any turbulence during your travels.

    Carry-On Dimensions: Make sure to check your airline's carry-on size restrictions. The lightsaber hilt is usually compact enough to fit, but it's always best to double-check.

    Declare Your Treasure: When passing through security, let the officers know about your lightsaber. They're usually familiar with these items, and a little heads-up can make the process smoother.

    While the journey to your galaxy far, far away might have some logistical hurdles, the joy of igniting your own lightsaber at home will make it all worthwhile. Safe travels, and may the Force be with you always!

    If you have any more questions, feel free to transmit them across the stars. Until then, may your path be illuminated by the light of the Force.
