    Also wondering about Build A Droid. How do we get the droids (s) home? Do they fit on the airplane? Does WDW s ship to home address?

    Bright Suns, Cheri! (You will hear this a LOT in Batuu!)

    Back when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge first opened in September 2019, I decided I HAD to visit the Droid Depot to build my very own adorable droid! So, I made my husband accompany me and I carefully chose my pieces to build my very own pink and purple R2 unit. (His name is R2QT, in case you’re wondering).

    The droid comes with his own cardboard carrying box, which in the Florida humidity didn’t stay quite as rigid as I would hope. So, I purchased a reusable shopping bag inside Mickey’s of Hollywood on Hollywood Boulevard in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, on our way out of the theme park. Box and all, R2QT fit inside like a glove! 

    Walt Disney World retail locations will ship items to your home address, but NOT your custom droid. But, the droids are small enough to be stowed under an airplane seat, which is what I did with mine on the way home. I did tip him on his side to fit better. 

    So, rest assured, your Build a Droid can easily travel home with your family. Have the BEST time visiting Black Spire Outpost! Did you know that your droid will interact with different “things” throughout Batuu? Be sure to take it over near the droid area by the restrooms (behind the blue & green milk stand). 

    Good Journey,
