    Is there something special that we have to do to participate in the Star WarsJedi Training Academy? The internet showed that it only open weekends. Is that true?

    Hi, JoAnn!

    The Jedi Training Academy is graduating new Jedi daily, but you will want to grab a Times Guide with the day's schedule of entertainment and events when you arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    All you have to do to enroll your young Padawan (ages 4-12) is to sign up! You'll want to do this immediately upon entering the Park, because this attraction does tend to fill up quickly; twelve children appear in each show.

    Head to to the Sounds Dangerous attraction early in the day and find the queue for signup. The spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and when the shows are full, the queue is closed.

    You will be given a show time, and instructions to check in thirty minutes before the scheduled start. The children are escorted into a holding area 10-15 minutes prior to the start of the show for final instructions, and then the education begins!

    Families of children are given priority spots in front of the stage (note: there is no real seating here; a few benches are around the perimeter, but this is a standing show).

    May the Force be with you on your wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
