You can still add money. The medallion links to disneygiftcard.com and you can add funds there or at a register.

Disney apparently doesn’t want to sell more as they were part of the grand opening celebration. I think we were lucky as they restocked DL SWGE for all the D23 members.
I was really glad that I got mine when I went out for D23 Expo. Managed to snag a droid backpack on my last day too. I won't be going to SWGE until we go back to WDW next Summer. Too bad I couldn't get a Loth cat or Porg at the creature stall though :(

Probably a really stupid question. But I saw a video of the experience at Savi's (which inspired me to want to get one). Is there a chance you may not get one of the color crystal's you want? It looked like as they were going around letting people pick, if everyone else picks a certain color you may not get it? Is that right?
Not a stupid question at all. My sister and I wondered about that initially. I've seen a ton of videos since, and I've seen some times when the Gatherer with the crystal canister will ask something like, "Do you see your color?" and if you don't, they'll bring out another canister with all the colors to choose from.

There are way more crystals in the first canisters than there are builders (I want to say 12 crystals for 7 people/half the room), so it generally doesn't seem to be an issue. But if my color was not in the canister when it reached me and they didn't ask me if I "saw my color," I would nicely ask if they had the color I wanted. I think they want everyone to end up with their desired color.

As I said, the confirmation email says "Guests must be 5 years old to participate." Must is a requirement, not a recommendation.
Typical of them to have conflicting info anymore
Still, a participant is not a guest. 5 to participate. Not 5 to be a guest.

    Droid Depot was taking walk ups this morning around 11am. My BiL decided last minute to build a droid, the walk up line was about a 15 min wait while people with reservations were allowed to go in almost instantly
    My BiL, 10 year old nephew and 7 year old niece went in together, the CM said that 1 adult with 2 kids was fine

    So I have had a res of Oga's at 9:50am. I was able to score a res for Savi's at 1025. We probably were only planning on having one drink anyway there (i've already been once to Oga's). Do you think i'm cutting it too close? I am going to see if anything opens up earlier for Oga's, but if not, may try to check in early?

    I'm sorry if this has already been asked, but if I need to modify the number of participants for Savi's, how do I do that? I have a reservation for my 3 children, but have decided that my youngest will not build one now. Thanks!

    Okay I'm going to Galaxy Edge. I have a new AP. I understand that I can't get a discount for Droid building or Savi. Is everything else taking a AP discount In Galaxy edge? Sorry this seems like a silly question.
    You cannot get the discount on a legacy lightsaber either, but you can on the blade.

    You can't. I was advised to just show up for your reservation and before paying tell them you only have 2 builders instead of 3.

    FYI, we didn’t book a reservation for Savi’s and showed up after rope drop this morning. The cast member made it seem like you still need a reservation. And when we went to check in, they acted like they had to check to see if they had any spots open. And then let us in with 2 builders. Then told us it would be a 20 minute wait. I then asked the girl at the register if there is any way to reserve for extra magic hours. She said no it’s only walk ins.

    We waited 20 minutes and we ended up being the first and only group in the show... so they are overselling the availability just FYI. They are probably limiting reservations online and allowing walkins during regular hours to drive up demand

    Actually, the stalling was because ‘Kenme’ was scheduled to be ready and onstage at the time of your show, not before. The CMs won’t explain it but will word it that way so that it’s up to the guest to decide if they want to sit and wait.

    Even WITH a reservation, I waited about 15 mins or so before starting, and after experiencing the Savi's event, it is going to take time to get set up for the next round of builders, kyber crystals and lightsaber restocked for each stand etc...They cannot "oversell" as there are only so many build stations, so if they have 14 then they will sell 14 spots ect.....plus add to that the length of the experience, ~20 mins (mine went 28 mins) that is very limited capacity. EMH are and added bonus and I am positive that is a first come first serve.
    These speculations are silly thinking, just go with it, have fun, enjoy this special experience!

    There are PLENTY to choose from, in my group there were 3 gatherers with canisters and krystals, if your gatherer is out of say red, then one of the other 2 will walk by and let you select from it. There are more krystals available then needed, so no worry on that, have fun!

    Thanks! It seems from the videos violet seems to be one of the more popular ones. Was leaning toward that, or may go full sith and choose red.

    After looking at the video my wife took during the build, it was a def tie between the red and violet! Funny in that going in, I was positive it was going to be blue no questions.......................BUT after feeling the moment and taking in the experience I ended up choosing violet, go figure........have fun!

    I figured Blue/Green would be most popular so people could be like Luke, yoda, etc.

    Guess we all have a dark side in us LOL (yes I know violet isn't, just referring to red)

    I meant overselling it by not allowing any more reservations online or by phone. But I’m still seeing people get walk ups even during peak time. Hence driving up demand

    I see! 😊

    Disney uses set ratios for everything. For 9 reservations for a specific Savi show, the other builder slots are for walk-ups. It’s to give walk-ups a chance versus the hoarders who booked up the reservations just because they were available and then Cancel them at will.

    Dont think so as again even on opening day they had a few "walkups" and was told they would continue to have a "limited" amount to offer, only thing driving up demand is the demand itself, it is quit a popular experience, very personal, you get a cool souvenir and a special memory, people drive up demand for something..................

    Good to know they have walkups available. I was just looking to book one spot for the last week of September and there is no availability for weeks when I look on my phone. Do they start the workshop at 6am when GE opens? Just trying to figure out the best time to go for a walk up since there are no reservations.

    I would get there early and get it done. You MAY be able to get in via walkup during the day / evening, but I wouldnt chance it or want to wait around. It is one of the coolest things I've done at Disney. Probably only 2nd to doing DiveQuest scuba at Epcot.
