I built all four styles over four trips in the first 2+ years of operation. Three at the $199 and one at $220. Unless a fifth style is ever released, I don't see myself doing it again, especially with more price increases. Definitely a premium experience but $500/hour even tops private tour hosts, right?

I didn't have a hard tine getting the res, I had the pick of all day and glad I did mine at the beginning of my holiday so missed the price increase

And you will probably still have a hard time getting a reservation

Quoting this here from @gerarar for the price increase on Lightsabers -

First week of August would just be around the 60 day mark, so yeah, they filled up.

I think they just disappear fast, same thing happened to me. Oh well I will save some cash

Does anyone know what's going on with reservations at Savi's? I have friends going who are looking for availability on August 8. three questions have arisen: 1. Starting 60 days out from their trip, they were able to search 60+length of stay, but no times were showing more than 60 days out. I thought Savi's was like ADRs, where you could book 60+LoS? 2. The attached screenshot was what I found on Tuesday for the first week of August, just looking at afternoon times. The results were similar for mornings. In other words, there were more than a dozen available slots every single day. As of yesterday, those are all gone. I do no believe that dozens of slots every day for that whole week were magically booked over one night. Any idea what game Disney is playing with Savi's availability? 3. Does anyone know of a service like Touring Plans' reservation finder that works for Savi's?

Wonder if this mean a price increase for Droid Depot is imminent... However I really like the $99 price tag for the droids, makes it more appealing without the extra “1” in front. :)

I really liked Savi’s, they really shouldn’t be making it more expensive though. This is coming from someone who has built a custom saber, and bought two legacy sabers.

LOL... I wasn't buying at $199 and sure the #@(% won't at $219 either.

Probably more lucrative to raise the drink prices at the canteen 25¢. I'm any case, these changes should be expected. 📈

DCBakerApr 19, 2021

Now $219 (was $199)

We did, I just hope they didn't have SO much fun that they need to do it again next trip, lol. I'm already sweatin' about the Star Wars hotel - I really wish Disney would put put some info. early on this one so we could save our pennies in time! I wonder if they will let people bring their sabers and droids? I would imagine so, but will be interesting to find out what a stay will entail.
