Both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort feature popular Build Your Own Lightsaber stations where Star Wars fans can select plastic lightsaber parts to assemble their own customized toy lightsaber. Build Your Own Lightsaber stations, which first opened in 2006, sell toy plastic lightsabers for around $25 to $50 or so, depending on the selected pieces (as of 2019).
Padawans may assemble a lightsaber with a character inspired design or develop their own original mashup design. A Disney Cast Member guides young Padawans through the entire building process, which takes only a few minutes to complete. Lightsabers from the Build Your Own Lightsaber stations are battery powered and light up and make sounds when turned on.
The availability and selection of pieces for the Build Your Own Lightsaber station has varied over the years. The building instructions have changed several times since the station’s 2006 introduction as well.
Build Your Own Lightsaber stations are TOTALLY DIFFERENT from Savi’s Workshop. Savi’s Workshop, located in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, sells high-end build your own lightsabers with metal hilts. Savi’s Workshop build your own lightsabers cost around $200 each (as of 2019).
