    Golng to H'wood Studios and want to sign up for the Jedi training. Better to be there early for the rope drop or make a breakfast reservation at H'wood & Vine? What is the earliest I can sign up for the Jedi Training under either option?

    Hi Martha,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am pleased to know that we have another possible recruit to bring peace to the galaxy!

    Having done rope drop and a pre-park opening breakfast reservation, I would definitely recommend a pre-park opening reservation at Disney's Hollywood & Vine so that you can enter the park early and secure a time for Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. The last time we visited, we had a breakfast reservation for 8:45 a.m. and the park opened at 9:00 a.m. We arrived at the park by 8:30 a.m. and by the time we got close to the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost, they were starting sign-ups. We signed the girls up before eating breakfast.

    Even if you have to take your seat for breakfast first, the sign-up location is very close to the restaurant, so one parent or guardian can take the recruit(s) to sign-up then return to finish breakfast. Just remember that your recruit(s) has to be with you to sign-up for training. 

    By the time the park opens, it takes just a few minutes and the line for sign-ups is LONG.  We have literally been there at rope drop, run to sign-up and by the time we could register, they were already on afternoon times. If you do rope-drop, remember that, with bags, it will take you longer to get through the entrance point at the park. The last time we did rope-drop, I gave my backpack to my mom, the girls and I went through the shorter line and then we ran to the sign-up location.

    Martha, also remember your Fast Pass+ and dining reservations when accepting a training time. It can get complicated but, your soon to be Jedi could use the Force to assist.

    May the Force be with you!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
