Join the Jedi at Savi’s workshop and build your very own custom lightsaber! Travel to a galaxy far far away, where you will find Black Spire Outpost located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Park for an immersive experience with the force.
Savi is a Jedi supporter and gathers scrap metal parts from around the galaxy to help build custom lightsabers for his Jedi friends and keep the resistance hope alive.
Once you arrive at Black Spire Outpost, you will be collected by Savi’s Gatherers, who will escort you to Savi’s Workshop’s secret location, which must remain a tight-lipped secret, so The First Order does not discover it.
When you enter Savi’s Workshop, you will discover a treasure trove of pieces collected from throughout the Star Wars universe. Of course, the primary objective for anyone entering Savi’s Workshop is to build their very own handbuilt lightsabers.
The Builder will have the option of your own lightsaber experience where you choose all the individual pieces or legacy lightsabers inspired by sabers from the Star Wars films.
Choose Your Hilt
With Savi’s Gatherers’ help, your first step will be to choose your custom lightsaber hilt theme. Here, your options are Peace and Justice, Power and Control, Elemental Nature, or Protection and Defence.
Peace and Justice – Scraps from fallen Jedi temples and starship crashes are used in these Republic-inspired designs in memory of the past.
Power and Control – Originally, these hilts were forged by warriors from the Dark Side and feature elements of the Sith dark world and forgotten temples.
Elemental Nature – This hilt encompasses the force of good. The energy of all living things that surround us and how harmoniously the universe can coexist.
Protection and Defense – These themes of scrap materials come from mysterious beginnings and have unusual markings. These hilts connect one with the old fountain of the force.
Many Star Wars fans will vouch for the great quality of the hilts. They do not feel like a cheap plastic toy you might buy at the store. They have some weight to them and feel strong and sturdy in your hand.
Choose Your Kyber Crystal
Perhaps the most exciting selection that you will make is choosing your kyber crystal for your lightsaber. The kyber crystal provides a specific color for your lightsaber, with the options being: red, green, blue, or violet.
Red – Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Kylo Ren
Green – Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Ashoka Tano
Blue – Obi-Wan Kanobi, Anakin Skywalker
Violet – Mace Windu
Next, Savi’s Gatherers will help you construct your lightsaber using parts and materials associated with your hilt theme selection. Each builder established a personal bond with their choices as they build their lightsaber, so choose carefully.
Once completed, your lightsaber will be ready to help guide you on your adventures through the galaxy. The entire experience is an adventure, from the gathers bringing you to Savi’s workshop to the final product you take home.

You can make advanced reservations on the Disney World website or the Disney Experience Mobile App. The Disney: Hollywood Studios park is open from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, and you must have a valid ticket to enter the park on the same day you have scheduled your reservation for Savi’s Workshop.

Simultaneously, entrance to Savi’s Workshop is limited to the builder plus a guest (as at least one individual must be over the age of 14).
