    I have a 3 year old. He wants to build a droid. He will obviously need help. Site says only one guest can join the builder. Considering how young he is would they waive that so that both parents can go with him to the experience.

    Bright Suns Elizabeth!

    As regular transports to Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu do not begin until the end of this month, I have yet to visit. I have my own countdown in place, and I too am anxious to assemble my custom droid unit at the Droid Depot. As the busy mother of four, there never seems to be enough help around my home, so I am hoping a droid may be able to lighten the load.

    I have been told the demand for such droids is anticipated to be large, and the merchant is only allowing a select few builders in at one time. This allows all droid builders to have the best experience. Only the ancients know how such a policy will be enforced. While I have heard stories from across the galaxy of additional droid builders being allowed into a similar shop, we will have to wait and see how things work for this new location.

    I have also heard that the clerks in this shop are known for their kindness and excellent service. I would ask such a clerk once you arrive at the Droid Depot if they will make an exception due to the young age of the droid builder. In this case, they may allow both parents to accompany their youngling, but it is truly up to the clerk at that time. For the best experience on the planet and with your droid, be sure to download the Play Disney Parks Mobile App prior to your visit. This will enable the Star Wars: Datapad on your mobile device once your transport arrives.

    After your droid unit is complete, might I suggest a refreshing blue milk from the Milk Stand? My children are also nagging me about adopting a pet from the Creature Stall, so we may be visiting there as well!

    Wishing you a good journey to the planet Batuu!

    May the Spires Keep You,
