UPDATE: Savi’s Workshop Now Providing Discount on Lightsabers Following Guest Complaints Regarding Downgrade to Plastic Bags for Carrying Cases
Just yesterday, Savi’s Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge stopped handing out the black lightsaber sheaths with purchases due to “supply chain issues”. This carrying case of sorts is listed as one of the included pieces with purchase of the $219.99 custom lightsaber guests can build in the workshop. When guests asked for a replacement or some sort of restitution for the downgrade, they were told that a plastic bag was an acceptable replacement and that is what they were given to carry around their expensive collectible.
Today, in what has become the typical course of action for Disney World in the last few years, management once again responded to public shaming on social media and has started to provide a discount on the experience, sans sheaths. Guests are now being given a 10% discount of roughly $22, per cast members we spoke to at Savi’s today.
The carrying case usually provided (seen above in our 2019 review) is made of black fabric with a detachable shoulder strap. The inside of the bag is partially lined with molded foam to keep the blade protected.
