    We will be going to WDW this July and my 6yr old really wants to be part of the Jedi training. Does he have to sign-up early in the morning at Hollywood Studios or do they take volunteers from the audience?

    Hi Jack!

          I have to tell you that my son loved being a part of the Jedi Training Academy in Hollywood Studios! Over the last few years, they have changed the way they pick kids for this special interactive experience. Currently, they are taking sign ups first thing in the day right by where the Jedi Training Academy stage is located (next to Star Tours 2.0 the Adventure Continues). These sign ups are only open at the beginning of the day for all of the shows for that day. There also is a standby line in case the kids that signed up earlier that day do not show up at their scheduled show time, but those in the standby line are not guaranteed to be in a show. My advice to you is to arrive at Hollywood Studios 30 minutes before the Park is scheduled to open and when it opens, head straight to the side of Star Tours to sign up for that day's Jedi Training Academy.

    I hope that your son gets to be a young Jedi in training at Hollywood Studios on your next Walt Disney World vacation!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
