Disney Hollywood Studios recently opened up the new Droid Factory a few days before Star Wars Weekends 2012.
This build-a-droid experience is located inside Tattoine Traders, the Star Tours gift shop. As neat as this was to customize your own R2 unit I found the area to be really small and it was due to it’s size and location that my wife and I opted to build them the day before Star Wars Weekends started. I’m sure the lines will be LONG!
If you’re not able to attend this year’s Star Wars Weekends have no fear! I’m told that this kiosk will be a permanent fixture at the shop. No word on weather this factory will make it out to the west coast but should it be a smash success I can see Disneyland getting their own factory sooner than later.
