Watto's Grotto overview

If you have been to Star Wars Weekends you may remember Watto's Grotto as one of the stores in Darth's Mall. Well now the store is a permanent fixture (or as permanent as anything can be in the Studios pending its makeover), operating daily, and is home to all your Star Wars merchandise needs.

Watto's Grotto is located just off the Streets of America, in the space that was originally the American Film Institute Showcase at the exit of the tram tour, and most recently the home of the second incarnation of Wondering Oakens Outpost and Snowground during the 2014 holiday season.

Opening just in-time for the huge 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' merchandise bonanza, the store is huge, and carries a lot of Star Wars merchandise. Of course, some of the most popular items sold out on Force Friday, such as the BB-8 robot, but expect to see things restocked pretty quickly.

Watto's Grotto also includes a build-your-own light saber, and build-your-own droid.

Watto's Grotto does not replace the existing Star Wars store near Star Tours, with Tatooine Traders continuing to operate as normal.

You can also find 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' merchandise throughout Walt Disney World. At Disney Springs in Once Upon a Toy, World of Disney, and D-Street, at the Magic Kingdom Park in the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A. and Merchants of Venus in Tomorrowland. Over at Epcot, Mouse Gear and Disney Traders is the place to go, and at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Island Mercantile.
