Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is already open at Disneyland in California, and will open on August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida. If you made a trip all the way to the planet Batuu, you are of course going to want some souvenirs to remind you of your journey. Don’t worry, there are plenty of shopping options. Galaxy’s Edge is an immersive experience, you’re supposed to truly feel as if you are on a planet that is part of the Star Wars universe. That is why you won’t find T-shirts and mugs with Star Wars and Disneyland (or Walt Disney World) printed on them. There are a few T-shirts for sale, but the themes reflect the land, not Disneyland. There are also no Mickey ears or headbands, the closest is a headband with either R2-D2 or BB-8 on it. Here is a quick rundown of the Disneyland merchandise locations. The Walt Disney World version of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is supposed to be identical.
1. Savi’s Workshop
Savi’s Workshop is arguably the hottest spot in Galaxy’s Edge, it’s even hotter than Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run! This is where you can build your own lightsaber. Savi’s is a secret shop that they are hiding from the First Order. The Cast Members inside Savi’s are known as Gatherers, and they will help you through the process. There are four different themes to choose before you start. You will also select the right kyber crystal, which is the “heart” of a lightsaber. You will be given a box with parts that fit the theme that you chose, and you will then pick the parts from that box. (You don’t get to keep the extra pieces.) When you’re done, you will have a beautiful lightsaber that looks like it could be in one of the movies. The cost is currently $199.99 per lightsaber, and that includes a carrying case. Since Savi’s is so small you are limited to one builder and one guest per experience. Reservations may be required. If you’re worried that your lightsaber will be confiscated before your flight home, go to the “what can I bring” page on the TSA website and type in “lightsaber”. It’s nice to know that someone with TSA has a sense of humor.
2. Droid Depot
Another merchandise location that is also an experience is Droid Depot. This is where you can build your own remote control droid to take home with you! You will choose between R-Series and BB-Series. You will be given a basket that will tell you what parts you will need. The parts circulate around the shop on a conveyor belt, you’ll grab the ones that you like. Then you will move to the center of the room, and you will put your droid together! One of the fun parts of building your own droid is that for an extra cost you can add a personality chip, because all of the droids in Star Wars have unique personalities. The cost for the basic droid is $99.99. There are also droids that are already assembled for sale, but where is the fun in that? Be warned that you are not supposed to use the remote control while in the park, but if you carry your new droid it will interact with some elements in the land.

3. Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities
If you’re looking for a curio shop, then you’ll want to stop by Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. There seems to be a little bit of everything in this store! Dok-Ondar himself is in audio-animatronic figure in the back of the store, watching over everything. If you’ve been looking for a bust of Emperor Palpatine or a Princess Leia wig, Dok-Ondar’s has these. Always dreamed of owning a Dejarrik set? Need an Imperial hat? These are also sold inside. Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities also has legacy lightsabers. These are not build-your-own, they are based on the lightsabers in the movies. There is a limited number of legacy lightsabers sold each day. Also inside Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities you will find Holocrons. Purchase a Holocron and a crystal, and some of the secrets of the galaxy will be revealed to you.
4. The Market
The Market, also called The Marketplace by many of the Villagers, is a really fun area. Instead of being one large store, there are several small open aired shops. The Creature Stall is kind of like your local pet store. You can adopt a Porg, a Rathar, and even a Puffer Pig! You could also pick a Kowakian Monkey Lizard, as long as you won’t mind him laughing on your shoulder. There are other interactive creatures for sale as well. Toydarian Toymaker has puzzles, games, Sabacc cards, and plush versions of some of your favorite Star Wars characters. Black Spire Outfitters is where the Villagers shop for their apparel. You can purchase clothes that will allow you to fit right into the Star Wars universe. Just remember that you will still need to follow the Disney Parks costume guidelines, so you might not be able to wear what you bought while in the park. Jewels of Bith is the closest thing that you will find to a Black Spire Outpost gift shop. There are T-shirts, hats, magnets, and other merchandise that features the words “Black Spire Outpost”. They do not say Star Wars or Disney on them. Pins are also sold there. While you’re in the Market area, make sure you get a drink from the water fountain.
5. Resistance Supply
The Resistance has set up a base on Batuu, and the First Order is looking for them. The Resistance needs help, and if you plan to join them you’ll need some gear. That is what you will find at Resistance Supply. There are badges, magnets, T-shirts (the “Wanted” T-shirt featuring Chewie is pretty cool!), pins, and other items. You can buy a Resistance Flag, a pilot uniform, Poe’s helmet, and more. You might want to pick up a Resistance MRE Snack Box or two, in case you’re sent on a long mission. The ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance may not yet be open, but you will still want to stop by the Resistance camp.
