    Mia from GA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    H! We’ve decided to take my nephew to the droid building experience in Galaxy's Edge! We’ve made a reservation but are not sure if both parents & child need to be included in the reservation. My nephew would be the only one to build a droid.

    Bright Suns Mia!

    Before you know it, you’ll be flying to a galaxy far, far away to experience the wonders of Black Spire Outpost on your voyage to Batuu.  Your family will be delighted to know that there are many things for aspiring Jedi, both young and old, to enjoy at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge!

    Mia, my two oldest boys were 7 and 10 when they visited Droid Depot and absolutely loved the experience - I'm sure your nephew will too!  When you make a reservation, you'll be asked for the number of builders.  If your nephew is the only one building a droid, you'll want that number to just be one.  While your nephew builds his droid, he'll be allowed to have one guest from your group join him as a non-builder, and the remainder of your party will be able to wait outside of the building area. 

    If you want to catch a glimpse of what the experience looks like ahead of your visit, you can check out a reel that was recently shared on our planDisney Instagram page.  Your nephew will get to choose the type of unit he wants to build, pick the colors of his pieces, and then assemble his new droid.  You'll also find a selection of optional add-ons including additional personality chips and carrying bags.  Once his new droid leaves the depot, your family will have the chance to watch it interact with its environment.  It will beep at other droids and react to the characters and surroundings throughout all of Batuu!

    While you're visiting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, I hope you have a chance to stop by one of my favorite Quick-Service locations - Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo.  I like to use Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering in the My Disney Experience Mobile App to maximize my time in the park rather than waiting in line to order.  If you're in the mood for something a bit different than the usual theme park food, I recommend the Felucian Kefta and Hummus Garden Spread!  

    Mia, may the Force be with you on your visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios and I hope you have as much fun at Droid Depot as we did!  If you have any other vacation planning questions in the future, please stop by planDisney to see me and my panelist pals again!

    Till the Spire!
