Find the Droids You’re Looking for at Tatooine Traders at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Just in time to celebrate all things Star Wars Weekends, we're talking about Tatooine Traders at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

This store is located at the exit of Star Tours and it was built to resemble the Mos Espa village in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

When Tatooine Traders originally opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios it was called Endor Vendors and was built to resemble the Endor shield generator bunker from Return of the Jedi.

As with many of the "located at the attraction exit" shops at Walt Disney World, guests can't help but walk into Tatooine Traders as they exit Star Tours.

But really, why would you want to skip this store? It's everything a Star Wars fan dreams of, and it's one of the locations at Walt Disney World where guests can build their very own Droid at the Droid Factory.

Back in 2012 the Droid Factory opened at Tatooine Traders during Star Wars Weekends and was the first location at Walt Disney World where guests could build their own Droid action figures.

The Droid Factory has more than 70 different pieces for guests to create 3 3/4 inch figures. To build your very own Droid you get to choose a dome, a body, and legs. Novelty hats are also an option, so your R-series Astromech Droid can also get its very own set of Mickey ears or even a Goofy hat.

In addition to the Droid Factory, Tatooine Traders is also a great place to find that perfect gift for the Star Wars fans in your life. The shop's merchandise includes T-shirts, action figures, LEGO kits, books, and build-your-own

Between the Droid Factory and the build-your-own Lightsabers, Tatooine Traders is the place to be if you're a Star Wars fan. The Force will definitely be with you.
