    Do you need a reservation in advance for the laser sword training in Star Wars land? If so where do you make the reservation?

    Bright Suns, Annette! It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There is so much Star Wars excitement happening right now at Disney's Hollywood Studios that I think there are two potential experiences that you might be asking about. The first one is Savi's Workshop, which is a shop in Black Spire Outpost where guests of all ages can forge their very own lightsaber out of scrap metal parts, and the second one is Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, which is an interactive experience where younglings aged 4 to 12 can test their Force sensitivity and wield a lightsaber against some of the villains of the dark side. They both require reservations and I'm happy to walk you through how to get a spot at each of them.

    Of those two experiences, the one that requires the earliest advanced reservations is Savi's Workshop. Reservations to make your own lightsaber can be made online up to 180 days in advance. This is a very popular experience so I recommend making reservations as early as possible! There may be some walk-up availability on the day you're there, but it all depends on if there are any openings or cancellations that day so be prepared with back-up plans if you're not able to get a reservation. Keep checking My Disney Experience though! Guests are changing their plans all the time so you never know what kind of magic might happen at the last minute.

    If you're traveling with a young Padawan who wants to take part in Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, reservations are also required but you can sign up on the same day that you want to participate. Registration begins as soon as Disney's Hollywood Studios opens for the day so head straight there to sign up for the time you want. The sign-up spot is located at the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost, which is between the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! and 50's Prime Time Cafe in the Echo Lake area of the Theme Park. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis so it's a good idea to make this one of your first stops in the morning if it's a must-do for your family.

    'Til the Spire, Annette, and may the Force be with you!

Meet the Panelist: Jessica, Texas

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups. In fact, we even opted out of a tropical honeymoon to spend a blissful week at Walt Disney World Resort instead! I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
