    Is there anyway to find out times of the parades in disney before i get down there. and does anyone know how to book in advance for the jedi training?

    Hi Angela,

    Love that you are planning ahead! That makes for a smooth trip!

    You can check parade & fireworks schedules for all of the theme parks online by clicking on these links:

    Magic Kingdom 
    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Disney's Animal Kingdom

    Select a month from the drop down list next to the View Month tab. From there, click on a specific day for parade & fireworks schedules. Be sure to pick up a Times Guide as you enter the parks to confirm as schedules are always subject to change without notice.

    They do not take advanced reservations for the Jedi Training Academy (JTA).  The number of participants is limited & they start registration first thing in the morning & stop once the spots are filled for the day (they usually fill up fast during peak seasons). If this is on your "must do" list, head that way first. Children must be present with an adult to register. Cast Members will ask potential Padawans a few of questions to make sure they can follow some basic directions.  Check the Times Guide as you enter Disney's Hollywood Studios for JTA performance times.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
