Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is the first land designed to integrate with the Play Disney Parks app, which debuted last summer and offers interactive adventures and experiences linked to the surrounding environment.

According to Disney, the app will provide new opportunities to engage with the land, like translating a galactic language, learning what’s hidden inside crates and containers, or accomplishing certain tasks by participating in missions.

Guests also can use the app to interact with a variety of elements, like antenna arrays, door panels, drinking fountains, droids, media screens, and ships.

Lets be real... The best thing that has returned all year is the AT-AT misting affect at ST. :)

There is an area across from Droid Depot where you can test and play with your droids on a mat. It is however not fenced off.

Sorry for all the questions Do they also have the area next to droid depot where the kids could play them fenced off?

They still have them

Do they still have the metal gift cards in Galaxy’s Edge? Think you had to buy $100 amount didn’t you? I really want one as a souvenir and will of course be going to Droid Depot

Thanks for the quick reply I’d love to build a lightsaber but with my son being only 6 I don’t see it lasting even until the flight home before it’s broken, so plan to do that in a future trip

No issues with Droid Depot. Savi's is very strict.

The Moles FamilyJun 07, 2022

Will Droid Depot allow 2 adults in with 1 child who is building or are they really strict on it?

Vader and Kylo were the two main villain characters together on stage right up until Jedi Training closed…

Vader and a reconstituted Maul were contemporaries in Rebels.

Didn't they have Vader and Maul at the same time in the past? The Jedi Training bad guys aren't "real" anyway, they are Force spirits, manifestations of the trainees fears. So they can have anyone there in theory and be story consistent.

I feel like I saw Kylo Ren and Darth Vader there together in Nov 2018, but you're right that's before Galaxy's Edge. Did they end up moving Kylo Ren out when GE opened?
