"In celebration of this announcement, I’m excited to announce that, beginning today fans can vote for which legacy lightsaber they would hope to see offered at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. That’s right, Dok is always looking to expand his offerings and this is your chance to tell us what you hope his next acquistion might be! Legacy lightsabers are modeled after the lightsabers of some of the most heroic, iconic, mythical and sinister figures in the Star Wars galaxy. This list includes legends from Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano to Darth Vader and Darth Maul. Found inside Dok Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, twelve unique legacy lightsabers have been offered to date. Today, you have a chance to share your opinion about what you hope to see added to Dok’s collection! Make your choice from these 6 options, all legendary in their own right — Anakin Skywalker, Kanan Jarrus, Qui-Gon Jinn, Cal Kestis, Ezra Bridger and Lord Corvax."

The discussion was also going on in another thread. I believe Disneyland opened without equity actors and WDW is using at least 1 equity actor. Hopefully someone can confirm.

WDW’s have been Equity from the beginning. Disneyland’s aren’t covered by a union as far as I know, though.

I don't mean to question you here, but I don't believe they used equity actors at the outset. I would certainly welcome the change if true.

I'd like Calculon to the be the droid that walks us through the light saber experience. Now *there's* drama!

Pictures show using every other work station. I would have thought they would've gone with plexiglass dividers.
