    Hello! I was wondering if it is possible to sign up for the Star Wars activities at Hollywood Studios ahead of time or if it has to be once you get into the parks?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I sense the excitement in your home as you get closer to the time of your trip!

    There are a number of Star Wars attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort. Some of them I would definitely recommend that you pre-book. Others you have to sign-up on the day of your visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    One of the most popular attractions is Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. Currently, parents or guardians must take young Jedi to sign-up at the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost on the morning of their visit. I suggest that you arrive to the park before it opens and then head directly to the sign-up location. If you can, make a pre-park opening Dining Reservation at Hollywood & Vine. It is very close to the sign-up location. The last time we visited, we made our dining reservation for 8:45 a.m. (the park opened at 9:00 a.m.) and were able to sign-up for Jedi Training just before we ate.

    The Star Wars Guided Tour and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party are two activities for which I would definitely suggest advance reservations. Other attractions do not require reservations. One of our favorite rides is Star Tours - The Adventures Continue. Although you can make a Fast Pass+ reservation for it, we have often found the stand-by line to be manageable. 

    May the Force be with you!
