    Does anyone know if the times posted for the Jedi training are the times of the shows or the times that participants need to report to the show. I read where they had to be there 30 minutes early if they are selected to be in the show?

    Hi Diane,

    The posted times are when the show actually begins. If your child is preregistered and selected to be in a Padawan, you will need to plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to the posted show time. In order to get your child signed up for the show, you will need to arrive at Hollywood Studios at park opening. The slots fill up very quickly. Per Disney, "Potential Padawans are to report to the queue outside the ABC Sound Studio at park opening. Twelve guests between the ages of 4 and 12 years of age will be selected for each show. The young Jedis-to-be are then instructed to arrive 30 minutes prior to the assigned show so that they can receive further special instructions. Be there early! The Academy has limited capacity, so it’s first come, first sabered."

    I can not stress enough how important it is to be there as soon as the park opens, preferably be there early and be waiting for the gates to open. If you have a little Jedi who wants to train, you won't want to risk disappointing them.

    I hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation,
