There are few lands more immersive and interactive than that of Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge found at Disneyland Park in Southern California and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort.

Galaxy’s Edge is home to two major attractions in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, as well as many unique experiences like Droid Depot, Savi’s Workshop, as well as Oga’s Cantina and the Milk Stand where you can enjoy some blue or green milk.

As part of the experience, Disney Park Guests are able to build custom merchandise, including droids and lightsabers. We recently shared an unfortunate experience where a Guest visiting Galaxy’s Edge saw their droid damaged in the shipping process while visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Unfortunately, it seems another Guest on the other side of the country just experienced a similar situation after building two custom lightsabers at Savi’s Workshop in Disneyland.

User @matchamina shared the video on TikTok.

As you can see in the video, both lightsabers were damaged in shipping. They are bent and the light only turns on to the point where they were bent. The user shared in an update that they spent $500.00 on the merchandise, but there was good news. Disney made it right and sent new blades to replace the broken ones.

Over at Walt Disney World Resort, the all-new Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser just opened. The immersive experience takes Guests on a “cruise” through outer space, which includes a stop at Batuu and much more.

At Disneyland, there is so much for Guests to enjoy! Now that the mask mandate has dropped for fully vaccinated Guests, Guests can enter buildings without a face covering if they so choose. Walking up to Sleeping Beauty Castle is always a dream, especially when you get to go inside and relive the story of Aurora and Maleficent. Riding classics like “it’s a small world”, Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, The Haunted Mansion, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Splash Mountain, and more will have you feeling the magic, and craving a churro! Toontown is currently gearing up for a massive change which will be revealed in 2023 with the reopening of the land, and the debut of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Plus, now at Disneyland, Guests can enjoy Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for some blue milk, or green milk, and ride Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run.
