ANAHEIM, Calif. — The force will be strong this week when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge officially opens at Disneyland in California.

On Friday, May 31, thousands of guests will travel to a galaxy far, far away and enter the highly immersive and interactive world that's been years in the making.

And of course, a visit wouldn't be complete without your very own lightsaber and droid.

According to Disneyland's website, you can build a custom lightsaber at Savi's Workshop for $199.99, plus tax. The experience is so authentic and is expected to be so popular, you may need to book a reservation.

In addition, you can build your own custom droid at Droid Depot for $99.99, plus tax.

Disney said guests at Disneyland will need a reservation to visit Galaxy's Edge when it opens on Friday, and will be limited to four hours inside the land.

A special wristband will keep track of your time limit, and once it expires, employees dressed as Stormtroopers will usher you out, according to Disney.

Starting on June 24, guests will no longer need a reservation to enter the land.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open a second location at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando on August 29. You can build your own lightsaber and droid there as well.
