Located Savi’s hidden workshop on the planet of Batuu and you and your friends can build your own one-of-a-kind lightsabers! A group of helpers called the “Gatherers” will be on hand to walk you through the process. Our favorite part is selecting the kyber crystal that will accompany your hilt!
Enjoy a Memorable Meal at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
For some truly unique grub head over to Docking Bay 7 where Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs mixes up some space-aged fare! For breakfast one of our favorites is the Mustafarian Laval Roll. Later in the day, be sure to sample the Fried Endorian Tip-Yip featuring crispy chicken, roasted vegetables, potato mash and herb gravy. Also, save room for a dessert of Batuu-bon chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse and coffee custard!
Dance and Drink to the Beats at Oga’s Cantina
Though Oga Garra is Blutopian crime boss, her cantina is a haven featuring delicious drinks, awesome entertainment and some pretty interesting regulars! For non-alcoholic beverage options our favorites are the Carbon Freeze, Jabba Juice or the Blue Bantha.
