Last week I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where it is located. There were some good guesses, but one person knew where to find the buttons.
Congratulations to Melanie who knew the buttons are located at Droid Depot in Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This is where guests can visit and customize their own droid. It’s a fun experience and can get a little busy, so reservations are recommended.
When you arrive at Droid Depot you will see different charts and drawings of the droid types you can choose from. When you get to the register the cast member asks which droid you would like to build and will give you the correct basket with the building instructions. Next you will be guided to the area to pick your droid parts. Each type of droid is available in multiple colors, so you can let the belt make a loop to make sure you see all your options. Once you have your color/s picked out, gather the parts and then make your way to the building area.
Once at the building area a cast member will guide you in building your droid. If there are any issues putting the droid together, the cast member will help. After the droid is build the next step is to activate it. The cast member takes the droid and puts it in a space at the top of the build area and when you are ready you press the “Activate” button. Once the button has been pressed you will see your droid start to move and make noise, and the lights on the build area will light up, indicating that the droid is ready and can be taken home.
As I said above, this is a pretty fun experience. Plus, you get a fun little droid to take home. Keep in mind that while you are in Galaxy’s Edge the droid will move and make noise. The droids also interact with each other. So if you have another droid at home, they will talk to each other. It’s interesting to watch them interact. One other note, there are different chips available for purchase for the droids. These chips will change their personality and how they react to certain things. The chips are available at Droid Depot and there is usually a cast member close by to tell you what each personality chip will do.
Congratulations to Melanie for knowing where to find the buttons and thanks to everyone who played along! Another Where is it Wednesday picture will be up soon.
