I am still processing our family Disney trip from a few a weeks ago. We did so many things and there are so many things I want to share with you! Tips and tricks I picked up during our first trip to Disney.
But first, I want to share with you what was probably the highlight of my boys’ trip: Jedi Training at Hollywood Studios.
When we were planning our trip, this was the #1 thing they wanted to do. In fact, they have been dreaming of doing this for a while now. And it truly was an amazing experience for everyone.
Watch our video below to get a glimpse what Jedi Training is all about and then read on for our tips for a successful training.
Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple
Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple (previously known as Jedi Training Academy) is a guest experience based on the Jedi teachings found in the Star Wars series, located next to Star Tours–The Adventures Continue in the Echo Lake area at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Get there early!
Availability is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. So you want to make sure you get to Hollywood Studios before it opens. We were there by 8:30 and immediately got in line for Jedi Training. The sign up location is next to the Indiana Jones themed gift shop neighboring 50’s Prime Time Cafe. Slots for this show fill up FAST (usually within the first hour), and it’s easier to guarantee your little ones a show spot the earlier you are to sign up.
We waiting maybe 15 minutes and got a 1:45 time slot.
Keep the Kids in Line
Whoever wants to complete the Jedi Training needs to be in line. Kids ages 4 through 12 can participate in the training. When you get to the front of the line, they will ask each child their age and also a series of questions like “Can you follow directions?” “Will you follow the rules?” and “Are you ready to be a Jedi?”
Be Early for Traning
When you receive your time slot, you will be told to report back 30 minutes prior. This allows cast members to get the kids lined, hand out Jedi robes, and go over the rules. Parents should stay with their children. However…
Have Someone Save a Seat
Only one parent needs to stay with your child so send the other over to the stage to grab a great seat!
Get the PhotoPass
Photographers are all around the stage taking photos of each child. You will be given a PhotoPass card to view your photos. If you are using the Disney App, you can skip waiting in line to view your photos and pull them right up on your phone.
