NEWS! Price INCREASES Hit Lightsaber and Droid Building Experiences in Disney World

HUNDREDS of price increases hit Disney World earlier in 2022, but that was only the beginning.

Trying out hilt parts

We’ve since seen price increases impact character dining, tickets (in a sneaky way), and more. And now 2 additional experiences in Disney World will cost you MORE during your next trip.

Two popular experiences in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge just got an increase. Let’s break down what you need to know.

Droid Depot

Looking to build your own custom droid at Droid Depot in Galaxy’s Edge? You can, but be prepared to spend more on it now.

Droid Depot

Previously, the build-your-own droid experience at Droid Depot cost $99.99, plus tax. Now, however, the Disney World website notes that the price is $119.99, plus tax.


What’s interesting is that the Disneyland website for Droid Depot still lists the $99.99 (plus tax) price. So for now this change has only been made on the Disney World website. We’ll continue to look for updates there.

Savi’s Workshop (Handbuild Lightsabers)

If you’re more of a lightsaber person, be prepared to spend more on that too. At Savi’s Workshop, you can build your own custom lightsaber. The experience used to be $199.99, and that increased to $219.99 back in April of 2021. But now things have changed again.

Inside Savi’s Workshop

The Disney World website now notes that the price for this build-your-own lightsaber experience is $249.99. This still includes the lightsaber and carrying case.


Again, we are currently only seeing this on the Disney World website for this experience. The Disneyland website still lists the $219.99 price at the moment. We’ll be on the lookout for changes there.

Keep in mind that Disney does explicitly note that the prices for these experiences are subject to restrictions or change. Be sure to check for the latest updates ahead of your trip.
