The sun is shining brightly! Here’s the inside scoop on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World, shared with my Frog Fam by Lily. You can also build your own droid through one of the build-your-own experiences! Here’s how you can build your own LIGHTSABER. Yes, fellow padawans, you read that correctly. In addition, I saw Rey, my favorite character from “Star Wars,” drinking blue milk!
A visit to Savi’s Workshop at Disney World will be one of your most memorable experiences. Choosing a color for the saber hilt and customizing the different pieces will immerse you in the game. For the Jedis and Siths in your family, these sabers are high-quality! I built the lightsaber with Mommy Frog this time after Tad built one with Dad in Disneyland Resort.
It takes about twenty minutes to complete Savi’s Workshop at Disney World’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. We recommend making reservations in advance to avoid disappointment. When you visit Batuu, this should be on the top of your list of things to do.
Disney World’s Savi’s Workshop Pricing and Logistics
The price of a lightsaber might surprise you at first glance. The $249.99 plus tax price tag will certainly take a toll on your wallet (or Mommy Frog’s in my case). As you build your lightsaber in the workshop, you’re also paying for the experience of building it. What is the real value of this product? “Star Wars” fans, if you can afford it, should definitely take a look. The experience with the builder can, however, only be shared with one other person. The pros and cons of having a large frog family must be considered.
In addition, you should be aware of the following details:
- One builder and one guest are allowed to participate in the lightsaber experience at Savi’s Workshop.
- Expensive lightsabers can only be built by the designated builder, not by guests.
- Children aged 5 and older are recommended.
- There must be at least one guest over the age of 14.
- The payment will be made at the location when you arrive.
- The purchase includes a carrying case.
- In Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, you can purchase additional parts and customizations.
- It is not possible to refund custom lightsabers or apply annual passholder discounts to them.
Disney World Reservations for Savi’s Workshop
Make a reservation at Savi’s to ensure you can visit. At Disney World, Savi’s Workshop is extremely popular, and reservations are required. It is not guaranteed that walk-ins will be accepted. As Disney (and Mommy Frog, the super-planner) recommends, you should make a reservation 60 days ahead of time. Disney’s website allows you to make reservations for Savi’s Workshop.
Make sure you have a valid credit card on hand when booking a reservation. Savi’s Workshop will not charge you until you arrive. You will be charged a “no-show” fee if you don’t cancel at least a day before and fail to show up. “No-show” fees cost $249.99 per builder and cover the cost of the experience. I don’t think that’s a good idea! Arriving late could result in entry being denied and a fee being charged. When choosing your reservation time, keep this in mind. When you arrive at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you’ll need time to pass through security and the turnstiles before walking to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Disney World’s Savi’s Workshop
Disney World’s Savi’s Workshop can be difficult to find since it is located in Black Spire Outpost. It is likely that you will need a park map to refer to the signs written in Aurebesh. There is a Droid Depot sandwiched between Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities and Savi’s Workshop, which is across (and down the stairs) from Ronto Roasters. As a covert operation and a top-secret shop, lightsaber building doesn’t help. You won’t have to wait long to find out if you can build a lightsaber! Scrap metal is the focus of Savi’s business.
Arrive 15 minutes before your assigned check-in time if you have a reservation. You can check in outside the shop. Check-in and entry into Savi’s Workshop require everyone in your party to be present. Your reservation confirmation, picture ID, and credit card used to book your reservation must be presented. Don’t be late! Cancel your reservation at least a day in advance (if necessary), or don’t be late! There’s a risk of you being charged a “no-show” fee if you cancel your reservation.
Have you made a reservation yet? If anyone is on standby, you can still check. If the cast members are taking down names, those standby spots will fill quickly if asked about them first thing in the morning. Depending on no-shows and cancellations, times can sometimes open up later in the day.

Lightsaber Options at Savi’s Workshop
One of the “Gatherers” will explain to you the four themes for the hilt, or handle, when you meet him outside the workshop. You should choose the one that the Force within you guides you toward! Your choice will then be represented by a cool pin.
You can choose from the following lightsaber hilt themes:
- A collection of peace and justice designs made from pieces of fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships honors the former guardians of the galaxy.
- The rumored remains of the Sith homeworld and abandoned temples are part of the Power and Control style originally forged by dark side warriors.
- Brylark trees, Cartusion whale bones, and Rancor teeth are examples of the Force as embodied in this theme.
- Users are able to reconnect with the ancient wellsprings of the Force through the materials used in Protection and Defense Hilts.
Upon entering the room, the lead Gatherer welcomes you and explains who they are: lightsaber experts who’ve travelled the galaxy to collect ancient relics and pieces that’ll be forged into lightsabers.
Choosing the kyber crystal – the heart of your lightsaber – is the first step. Your blade’s color is determined by the crystal. There are four colors available: red, blue, green, and violet. In addition to white and yellow kyber crystal, Dok-Onder’s Den of Antiquities next door also sells them.
