What to Trade with Jawas at Hollywood Studios

If you are a fan of Star Wars, the place to visit is Hollywood Studios. Not only can you ride in the Millennium Falcon, drink blue milk and go on a journey to Endor, you might also be able to trade with Jawas at Hollywood Studios.

What are Jawas?

The Jawas are greedy little scavengers who live on the deserts of Tatooine and are always in search of discarded scrap and parts of droids.

They are known to be sneaky little buggers and hard to find.

Where to Find Jawas at Hollywood Studios

Star Wars Launch Bay at Hollywood Studios is a great place to meet & greet Star Wars characters, see movie props and find one of a kind souvenirs.

If you play your cards right and are there at the right time, you might stumble upon Jawas.

How to Stop a Jawa

Jawas are always on the move.

If you ask them for a picture, you will be able to get them to stand still for a photo opt. If you don’t ask, they won’t stay still.

We saw many children chasing after them, but they would not stay still unless they were asked for a picture.

I would recommend photographing without a flash so that you can get their glowing eyes to really pop!

Trading with Jawas

What to Trade with Jawas at Hollywood Studios

The Jawas are greedy little scavengers who will search your pockets (and your purse) looking for things that they can use.

If you are lucky and they find something that they like, you might be given the opportunity to do some trading with the Jawas.

The key is to come prepared.

Have things that you are willing to part with in your pockets!

We have seen the Jawas twice while at Hollywood Studios Star Wars Launch Bay.

The first time, they did not find anything on us that they wanted to trade.

What I traded with the Jawas

The second time, we were given a piece of a Droid unit in exchange for a Donald Duck pen.

Have you had the chance to trade with Jawas? What did you trade?

Think of it as a Geo Cashe. What you trade to them is what they have to trade to oyher kids. Head to your nearest store and pick up a few cheap toys. Star Wars toys are the best. For example, a three pack of hot wheels toys at Walmart for around $5.

I agree. Fill your pockets with junk and they will surely find something. No matter what it is, it is fun!

I traded an old tritium glowing key fob for a starwars rebel insignia pin I saw someone trade to the jawa.

Yes, it can be quite disappointing. I hate that they don't make an effort to trade with those that obviously have taken extra steps to try to make it fun for their kids!

We brought two pieces of 'space junk' to trade with the Jawas. One was a fan cover from an old PC. The other was a small shiny plumbing valve. I made the mistake of building this up to my kids as something fun to do. We tried to trade with two different Jawas and they didn't give us anything in return. This was an immense disappointment for my kids. I'd suggest bringing something for your kids, but not telling your kids till you see the jawa and just tell them to try it and see what happens.
