Droid Depot mobile app brings Star Wars Galaxy's Edge home

May 04, 2020 in "Star Wars Galaxy's Edge"

Disney has today launched a new Droid Depot mobile app that lets you interact with your astromech droid from Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge or even build your own virtual droid.

The app is available for free on the App Store or Google Play. Also, for the first time today and for a limited time, you can also buy a pre-built droid direct from the depot via shopDisney.com

Can't comment on the ears, could not find them when I just looked. But I saw earlier that they are backordered which is a reasonable solution. Everything else however is still sold out even this key thing people seem to be interested in.

Check again, they're in stock. Along with the ears everyone's freaking out over.

No site has been down since 10AM Eastern due to May the Fourth Sales. Lots of people including myself tried to buy stuff only to get kicked out and then told it was Sold Out. Literally had one item in my cart tried to check out got bounced out and was told it was sold out. Tried to add a different item that was still available was entering my info for checkout got kicked out a second time and then when I went back into the site it was sold out. Its a mess. UPDATE: Site is now working... All of the Star Wars Starbucks Mugs (what I was after) and a few other things are SOLD OUT.

Perhaps, but Disney's websites are notoriously bad for handling the tiniest amount of increased foot traffic. lol. For a zillion dollar company, their IT dept sucks.

It's not really that app or just the droids at all. It's May 4th aka big limited merch day for Star Wars and very few sales have been made due to wonderful Disney IT issues.

Went to shopDisney to look at the pre-built droids and got a 'this page is popular' wait page. So apparently this is working.
