Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser guests who visit the Droid Depot and make their own droid while visiting Batuu will be able to use their droids aboard the ship during special activities.

What’s Happening:

  • Guests traveling aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser have the option of visiting the Droid Depot while visiting Batuu, and will be able to use their new Astromech Droid when they return to the ship.
  • Even though guests are discouraged from using their new Droids while on-planet in Batuu, they are encouraged to use them aboard the Halcyon, and on-board activities including Droid-racing competitions will be offered.
  • Guests can talk to their Galactic Starcruiser Specialist to add these activities, including their Droid Depot visit up to 60 days before their Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser voyage.
  • Guests don’t have to be staying aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to participate in building their own Droid at the Droid Depot. They can visit the landmark workshop on Batuu (Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge) that is stocked with parts, chips, manuals and other tech items useful for constructing your very own droid, one of the galaxy’s most indispensable sidekicks.
  • Guests can select from a variety of components in all different colors as they roll by on the shop’s conveyor belt to build their very own R2 or BB unit.
  • They will then take their parts to build their own Droid at a build-station, where they’ll follow instructions on graphic monitor displays to assemble the product in a proper sequence. It is then paired with a remote and activated, coming to life in front of their new owner.
  • Guests can accessorize their Droids with personality and affiliation chips (at additional cost), and will also have the option to purchase other accessories like carrying backpacks and additional cosmetic features.
  • Advance reservations for the experience are highly recommended, and a small number of same-day reservations may be available up to two hours in advance.
