Build a Droid at Disney WorldIf you had the great opportunity to experience Disney’s ® annual Star Wars fan event, Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios ™ you probably took an intergalactic tour through the Star Wars galaxy flying alongside such popular Star Wars characters as R2-D2, Princess Leia and Chewbacca on Star Tours – The Adventure Continues. You probably also learned how to use the force to fight off the evil Darth Vader and his cohorts in Jedi Training Academy. You may be thinking your Star Wars journey is pretty complete these days. But there is one thing missing, you’ve very own Droid.

The Tatooine Traders store at Disney’s Hollywood Studios ™ is now offering a unique experience that lets Star Wars fans build their very own Droid action figure. Similar to the build your own light saber attraction, the Build a Droid area of the store will let fans create their perfect robot for the ultimate Star Wars keepsake.

The Droid Factory offers 71 different pieces to create your perfect 3 ¾ inch figure. You’ll begin your droid building by selecting a dome, a body and legs, all of which are offered in a variety of different colors and styles. Whether you want your droid to replicate the famous droid R2-D2 or have its own unique personality, the Build a Droid option gives you plenty of accessory choices to satisfy your droid needs, including select novelty accessories like a third leg or silly hats including a Goofy hat, Yoda hat, fedora and pirate hat. Once you’ve completed your droid, you’ll be able to place him or her into a nice Star Wars package that has been designed to look like you actually bought the toy at a store, rather than having made it.

The Build a Droid experience debuted at the start of Star Wars Weekends in May and it’s not clear whether it will stick around Disney ® as a permanent attraction or not. But with so many Star Wars fans lining up to create their own piece of the film saga magic, it just might be here to stay. If not make sure you get the chance to create your own Droid by getting to Hollywood Studios ™ ASAP!

Now that the force is with you and you’ve traveled the Star Wars galaxy wouldn’t you say it’s about time for your very own droid?  You can make that happen at the Tatooine Traders store with discounted Walt Disney World ® tickets right here on Orlando Fun Tickets.
