The Force is Really with you at the Jedi Training Experience at Walt Disney World Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. Get ready to face the Dark Side!
During the Jedi Training, the participants (kids between 4 and 12 years old), get the opportunity to train to be a Jedi then use their skills to fight against Darth Vader and his sister! This is an experience the kids will not forget, at least until the next time, lol!
One of my sorority sisters was one of the actual Disney cast members at the Jedi Training during our 2nd trip to Disney a few years back and she urged me to sign the kids up. But the kids were a tad younger and were not interested. But this year I knew that they were ready since they are all into Star Wars now!
So the Super Important thing to know about Jedi Training is that you MUST register in advance. And if you want first dibs on time preference, you’ll want to sign up before the park even opens plus it’s first come first serve and space is limited!
Jedi Training Experience
For starters, you must register by the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular and you will see the sign for it. All the participants must be present. You will get a ticket with your time slot and the time in which you need to be there prior to the show, which for us was 1:40p for the 2:10p show.
The cast members advised that the kids should begin drinking water even hours before the show because of the heat during the show. It lasts for only 20 minutes but you are prepping and waiting for about 20 minutes as well.
The show itself is quite exciting as you watch the kids get trained and then Darth Vader and his sister appear. The Jedi trainees then help defeat the dark side with ‘The Force”! It is awesome!
Highlights of Jedi Training: Getting to wear official Jedi robes, fighting with official Lightsabers and of course fighting against Darth Vader! I ordered Star Wars Hooded Jedi Robes for the kids prior to our trip, not knowing that they provide them for the show. But they served as a fun souvenir for the kids…at the end of the day, they wanted to sleep in them, lol!
Do you think your kids would enjoy this experience?
