    What could I expect with Jedi training academy? If go directly at park opening EMH how long does the experience take? Wondering how to plan FP+ selections around time. Any tips and recommendations would be appreciated!

    Hey Amy-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple takes you to a galaxy far away for adventure, excitement, lightsabers, Sith Lords and Jedi victories. My 8 year old son just battled a Sith Lord during this show and showed her the power of the Light Side.

    If your padawan is ready to battle the Dark Side then hop on your transport and arrive at the gates of Disney’s Hollywood Studios 30 minutes before you will be allowed in the theme park. This includes Morning Extra Magic Hours. Signups for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple takes place at the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost. Each of the 20 daily shows takes around 30 younglings. If you have FastPass+ or dining reservations let the Cast Member know and request a training time that works with your plans. Just don’t let Lord Vader and the Seventh Sister know. Show times have yet to be released for your trip dates and, when released, may change with short notice.

    A parent and padawan must be together to sign up for training. Even though the show is about 25 minutes please budget 60 minutes. Your padawan needs to arrive at the sign up site 30 minutes before the show.

    Parents do not need to accompany their children after they return to the sign up site. A Jedi Master will lead them to the Temple. Ask a Jedi where the best viewing spot is at the show site. Being closer to the “Temple” training site will get you the best pictures and video.

    Disney Dad Tip: Plan Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple for early to mid-afternoon to allow you to enjoy a morning of attractions and the ability to get more FastPass+ reservations for later in the day.

    Amy, may the Force be with you.
