Mandy of Sparkly Shiny Love Visits Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Her experience at Orlando's Walt Disney World Resort
Here is what Mandy had to say about her experience:
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge surpassed our expectations — the theming was incredible, the food was creative and tasty, and we left with a custom droid.
After speaking to some of the Cast Members, I realized they were all a part of the theming as well— they actually spoke Batuuese! They mentioned things like rising moons, data pads, younglings — it took me a minute to understand what was going on, but then I started to catch on.
Imperial troops are in character as well, and they ask you to swear loyalty to the First Order! It definitely helps to catch up on all of the Star Wars movies before you visit!
There are two major purchases that you can book a reservation for or get into a standby line to create your own souvenir. You can create one of four themed lightsabers at Savi’s Workshop
, or you can create your own droid at the Droid Depot
After looking inside the Droid Depot, we decided we couldn’t leave without creating one! The age recommendation for this is 3+, and the cost was $99.99. This was really cool. I am so glad we did it — my son loved the whole process, and his droid really is the coolest toy he owns.
