    My 6 year old son ( and his 34 year old dad) are HUGE Star Wars Fans. Is there a way to get him signed up for the Jedi Training or do they just randomly pick from the audience? He will certainly be disapointed if he can not take part!! Visiting May 15-22

    Hi Kathy!

         My boys and husband are all Star Wars fans as well!  The selection for the Jedi Training Academy is supposed to be random, but I have a few hints.  Try to get a spot in the front where the cast members will be able to spot him easily.  Also, have him decked out in a Star Wars costume or other Star Wars apparel to make him really stand out.  If he won't kill you, I know a mom who made a huge sign that said "Pick my #1 Star Wars Fan!"  Sure enough, they picked him!  Finally, the cast members are looking for kids who WANT to participate, so have him jump around as well.  If all else fails, the show is offered several times a day and you can always try again.  May the force be with you Kathy!

    Much pixie dust,
