Star Wars Build-Your-Own Lightsaber in The Star Trader

All New Build-Your-Own Lightsaber Parts Arrive at Disneyland Resort

Shannen Ace

The “Star Wars” build-your-own lightsaber experience at Disneyland Resort has all new parts. In this experience, guests can make a relatively cheap plastic lightsaber. It’s different from the more expensive and immersive Savi’s Workshop Handbuilt Lightsabers experience in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

We visited the build-your-own lightsaber station in The Star Trader at Disneyland but the new parts are also available at Star Wars Trading Post in Downtown Disney District.

Build-Your-Own Lightsaber prices and end caps

The new parts have replaced all of the previous options. Prices are listed at the ends of the station.

  • Single lightsaber – $34.99
  • Deluxe single lightsaber – $39.99
  • Double lightsaber – $49.99
  • Deluxe double lightsaber – $59.99

Deluxe means two small blades stick out of the hilt, like Kylo Ren’s lightsaber.

Build-Your-Own Lightsaber emitters

Steps to the experience are outlined on the station so guests can complete the experience on their own.

  1. Choose end cap (for single lightsaber) or adapter (for a double-bladed lightsaber)
  2. Choose chassis with blade color
  3. Choose activation switch
  4. Choose sleeve
  5. Choose emitter (standard or deluxe)

The bins are supposed to be organized by part, but items can end up in the wrong bin as guests mix and match. See all the new pieces below. (Note the individual photos are from Walt Disney World Resort but the pieces are the same.)
