    Hi Guys 2 questions! 1st To sign up for Jedi training if the park has extra magic hours do they start the sign up early or do they still wait for main park to open? 2nd Where in the Port Orleans resort can u stand to see the Epcot fireworks? Thank you :-)

    Welcome back, Emma!

    Thank you for visiting us again! One of my favorite perks, as a Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, is being able to spend more time in the theme parks using Extra Magic Hours. You will find that registration for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple begins as soon as Disney's Hollywood Studios opens for the day. Although there are multiple training shows each day, each session has limited availability and spots are filled first come, first-serve. Therefore, if this experience is high on your Jedi recruit's must-do list, you should go straight to the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost (located beside 50's Prime Time Café) as soon as you arrive to register. 

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort- French Quarter does appear to be close to Epcot on a map. However, the distance is farther than you expect and since there are many trees between the two areas, a decent view of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth from this Disney Resort hotel is difficult. You may see some of the high fireworks and hear the booms, but this pyrotechnic show is best viewed from inside Epcot. 

    I hope this helps with your planning! Please visit us again soon!
