We realize the Black Spire Outpost is situated on a far-away alien planet, but things took a truly bizarre turn on Batuu this morning!
While we’re used to having to wait longer for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run since Rise of the Resistance debuted (luckily we’ll soon be able to use FastPasses for Smugglers Run, so no biggie!) we’re NOT used to waiting in line to enter a Disney World shop! That’s why we were shocked to see a queue outside Droid Depot just before noon today with a 60-minute wait time!
Considering you’ll spend $99.99 +tax to build-your-own-droid once you get in, this is ONE expensive wait! It is important to note that this was likely the standby line. Those with reservations should have been able to skip ahead and go on in at their set time. If you have a reservation and see this line, we suggest speaking with a Cast Member as they should be able to assist you!
And get this! Droid Depot wasn’t alone! Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities also had a line just to go in! We can wait 30 minutes in a standby line to ride one of our favorite attractions or meet a rare character standing on our heads, but to enter a gift shop to spend a bunch of money? This might be pushing it a little.
This is the first time we’ve personally seen these two Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge gift shops post wait times, and so far we’ve only seen them at Droid Depot and Dok-Ondar’s. We’ll let you know if we see any other shops start doing this as well, so stay tuned for developments!
