You Can Soon Craft Your Own Lightsaber Again Inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The Force will soon be flowing once again inside Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida. Beginning Sept. 20, the Gatherers will invite you into this mysterious shop in Black Spire Outpost to train you in the ways of constructing a lightsaber. 

Savi’s Workshop is packed with unusual parts and whimsical pieces collected from the far reaches of the galaxy. Under the mystical Gatherers’ guidance, you construct a one-of-a-kind lightsaber and bring it to life through the power of a kyber crystal. You can build your lightsaber along one of the following themes: 

  • Peace and Justice – Utilize salvaged scraps of fallen Jedi temples and crashed starships in Republic-era lightsaber designs that honor the galaxy’s former guardians.
  • Power and Control – Originally forged by warriors from the dark side, objects used in this lightsaber style are rumored remnants from the Sith home world and abandoned temples.
  • Elemental Nature – Craft a lightsaber from special components born from the Force, such as Brylark trees, Cartusion whale bones or Rancor teeth.
  • Protection and Defense – Incorporate hilt materials bearing mysterious motifs and inscriptions that reconnect a lightsaber’s wielder with the ancient wellspring of the Force.

For those who may have visited the shop in the past, you’ll notice the experience will be slightly adjusted. For instance, capacity will be reduced to allow for physical distancing between guests in accordance with the park’s guidelines during its phased reopening. 

Advanced reservations (highly recommended) for Savi’s Workshop will open Sept. 16 via Disneyworld.com or the My Disney Experience mobile app; you can also stop by the shop to check for walk-up availability on the day of your visit. You must have a valid Disney Parks Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios prior to making a reservation for Savi’s Workshop. 

Comments

  • Is anyone else having issues booking a reservation between Sept 20 and Nov 15? I can’t seem to make one in that time frame?

  • WHOO-HOO
    This is the Reason why we are coming in the first place to Hollywood Studios.
    My Son will be So Happy!
    He can’t wait to make his LightSaber the way it should be made 🙂

  • Other than reduced capacity, will there be other changes to the experience? Will the full “show” still happen with the secret Star Wars character appearing? Or will the experience move in more of the direction of the droid depot?

  • This is such good news! Is there a particular time on 9/16 that reservations will open? Thanks for any guidance you can give!

  • Excellent news!

    How many months in advance can you make reservations for this special experience! I want to
    make sure I can do it the next Disney trip!
