    We will be travelling to WDW while Jedi Training Academy will be closed. I have three devastated boys. I know that we can still ride Star Tours, but I am hoping that there is some sort of other Star Wars character experience available, even for a fee?

    Hello, Shannon,

    Star Wars is HUGE with my family, and I know from my own experience how important it was for my three sons when they were younger to participate in the Jedi Training Academy.  I'll be hoping that your sons will be able to enjoy some unforgettable Star Wars moments on your upcoming trip.  

    While there isn't anything official about newer Star Wars related options at Walt Disney World, I'd check the Disney Parks Blog regularly as updates will be shared there, especially to see what is happening with Season of the Force at Walt Disney World. It may also be helpful to check the Park Hours for Disney's Hollywood Studios to see what is scheduled to be happening on the days you will be visiting, including character greetings. 

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your sons!  -Kara
