Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers to Reopen Soon Inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge


Walt Disney World has just announced that Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will begin welcoming guests back on September 20, 2020.

Savi’s Workshop is chock full of unique parts and whimsical pieces that are said to have been collected from the far reaches of the galaxy. Guests can construct a one-of-a-kind lightsaber under the guidance of the mystical Gatherers. Your newly-constructed lightsaber will be brought to life using the power of a kyber crystal. The following themes are available: 

  • 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.

Guests who have visited the shop in the past will notice the experience has been adjusted somewhat. The capacity has been reduced to allow for physical distancing between guests in accordance with the park’s guidelines during its phased reopening. 

Advanced reservations are highly recommended and will open on September 16. Reservations can be made via Disneyworld.com or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app; you can also stop by to check for walk-up availability during the day of your visit. Guests must have a valid Disney Parks Pass reservation for Disney’s Hollywood Studios before they'll be able to make their reservation for Savi's Workshop.
