Can I buy a lightsaber without doing the experience?
You can only build a custom lightsaber through Savi’s Workshop. However, you can buy several variations of lightsabers at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. They are:
- Standard lightsaber with extendable blade: $39.99
- Padawan lightsaber with extendable blade: $19.99
- Legacy lightsabers (hilt only): $109.99 - $199.99 depending on the style
- 26 in lightsaber blade: $44.99
- 31 in lightsaber blade: $49.99
Savi’s Workshop can be reserved up to 180 days before your trip (a deposit is required equal to the full price of the experience). There will be very limited walk-in availability, so booking is highly recommended. Cancellations can be made up to the day before without penalty; however, any no-shows will lose their deposit. Reservations can be made through My Disney Experience app or on www.mydisneyexperience.co.uk. A ticket to Walt Disney World Resort is required.
