    I was wondering if the droids that you build at Galaxy Edge are interactive, or do anything special in Galaxy Edge?

    Bright suns, Michelle!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu.

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will provide guests with a level of immersion unlike anything we have ever seen before.  As you explore Black Spire Outpost, there will be many opportunities for you to interact with the environment and create your very own Star Wars adventure.  One immersive experience that guests can take part in is constructing their own astromech droid at Droid Depot.  

    During this experience, guests can construct either a BB-series or R-series droid.  You will be able to choose parts for your droid from a conveyor belt, assemble it, and bring it to life in an activation station.  Once activated, your droid can interact with other astromech droids and various Bluetooth-enabled elements and devices as you carry it throughout Black Spire Outpost.  Personality chips are available to purchase at an additional charge to further customize your droid's interactive responses.  Also, don't forget to download Star Wars: Datapad on the Play Disney Parks mobile app for even more interactive adventures.

    Various Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge experiences, including Droid Depot, are currently accepting reservations up to 180 days in advance.  If these are the droids you are looking for, I encourage you to make a reservation.

    May the Force be with you!
