    We are going to WDW at the beginning of July. My six year old loves Star Wars and so the first thing we are doing is the Star Tours attractions. My question is are there any special tips as to getting picked for the training?

    Hi Sara,
    You must be getting excited...your trip is just a few short weeks away!!!

    You will be able to ride the new Star Tours---it is such an incredible 3D experience!

    The Jedi Training Academy has changed.  It is now a first come, first register to be in the academy.
    My best tip is to go first thing in the morning and register for one of the shows.  They fill up fast, so the sooner you can head over and get your Padawan's name of the list the better your chances of being able to participate.  Your son needs to be with you when you register.  You might be given a show time for later in the day, in which you can just go and enjoy the park and come back for your set time.

    Have a fantastic vacation and may the force be with you!!!
