How To Be Chosen For The Jedi Training Academy at Disney Hollywood Studios

My boys have been training to become Jedi for the past year.

They’ll spend hours in their playroom, trying out the moves from the Star Wars movies and reenacting the scenes.

Little did they know, I had a secret that would literally blow their minds.

Not only were we surprising them with a trip to Disney World but my husband and I had planned to enter them into the Jedi Training Academy at Disney Hollywood Studios.

This was happening towards the end of our trip and I couldn’t wait to see their faces.

Finally the day came and let me tell you, I had tears in my eyes watching my boys live out their one dream….to become a real Jedi.

Here’s the thing, everyone (and I mean everyone) that goes to Hollywood Studios tries to enter their children into the academy.

Because it’s so popular, a formal selection process has been implemented.

But no worries! I have a few tips to help your children be chosen for the Jedi Training Academy;

  1. Get to the park about an hour before it opens.
  2. Head (or run because literally people will be running) to the entrance of Star Tours to sign up for one of the sessions. It’s first-come, first-served, and when all the spots are full, the list is closed for the day. The day we were there, it sold out in a half hour!
  3. Twelve children between the ages 4 and 12 are taken for each session.
  4. The cast member talks to each child in person before signing them up for the show.
  5. You will be given instructions to return to the entrance 30 minutes before the show starts.
  6. When you arrive for your show, a cast member will take the children to an area and explain how the show works. They’ll play fun Star Wars games with them to keep them busy until show time.
  7. Family members of the participants are given spots in the front of the audience.

Where is the best place to stand to see your little Jedi fight Darth Vader?

  • If you are looking at the stage, stand off to the left side.  This is the direction your child will be facing when he or she takes the stage to face against the evil Darth Vader.

Here’s a peek at our day;

But wait! What happens when the Stormtroopers come after you? You MUST use the force!

And then after you have successfully completed your mission…it’s time to pose as a true Jedi;
