    Signing up for Jedi training Jan. 2, 2013. Seems like we have to get there well before park opening to get spots on such a busy day. Is it even possible to get to HS one hour before opening on bus from POR? Is it better to take a taxi to ensure a spot?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios, like the other theme parks, will definitely be crowded that day.  However, I don't think you need to arrive that early; you should be fine if you arrive only 30 minutes before park opening.  You really shouldn't have a problem getting there by that time if you use Disney transportation as buses should start running an hour before the park opens and it's a short trip between Port Orleans Riverside and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    When you go to sign up for the Jedi Training Academy be sure to bring your young Jedi with you. Disney wants to make sure you have an age appropriate child.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
