Watto’s Grotto

Watto's Grotto

During our (one and only) day at Hollywood Studios, we were browsing some new Star Wars merch in Tatooine Traders after riding Star Tours. As I admired the Dooney & Bourke Star Wars handbags (nope, I didn’t get one, but was tempted), a lady came up to me and told me to go to Watto’s Grotto for even more Star Wars stuff. I had no idea what she was talking about. She explained that it was a new store in “that place that closed.” Since this can describe multiple locations around Hollywood Studios, I started making random guesses… the Magic of Disney Animation? Nope. The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow? Nope. The Studio Backlot Tour? Yes! The post-ride area, where a film institute exhibit and gift shop once were, is now the Star Wars-themed Watto’s Grotto. Filled with all kinds of Star Wars merchandise, this is THE place for fans like me. We kept ourselves from going purchase-crazy (which could have happened quite easily), but the boys made their own souvenirs at the droid factory and each bought a Limited Edition pin.

The alphanumeric stickers are so you can name your droid. This one is, as yet, unnamed. Suggestions?

I’m not sure how long Watto’s Grotto will be in its current location, but if you’re a Star Wars fan, check it out!
