Guests can reportedly construct their own lightsaber, bringing it to life with the power of a kyber crystal. The galactic device can follow 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 homeworld 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. 

Advanced reservations to visit the shop will open on September 16th via Disneyworld.com or the My Disney Experience mobile app. Walk-up availability will also be available on the day of your visit.
