    Camille from LA Asked

    My 2 boys love Star Wars and want to go to Jedi academy. We have a magic your way package with fast pass. Can I use fast pass on the Jedi academy? Also all of the character experiences for Star Wars shows schedule unavailable. Why and how to plan for that?

    Hi Camille,

    The Rebel Forces most definitely need additional recruits. I sense that the Force is strong in your young ones. Training they must have!

    Since the Rebel Base may change at any moment, you must get your boys to Disney's Hollywood Studios at park opening, then make your way quickly to sign-up for Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. Since we do not want the Rebel Base detected, we cannot use Fast Pass+ at this time. Each recruit must be present with you to sign-up. Our girls have battled Darth Vader several times and each time, they have defeated the Dark Side.

    Once we received our training time, we had to report back 30 minutes prior to that time. The experience lasts about 30 minutes, so I would allot at least an hour and ten minutes for the training. You will not know your training time until the day you sign-up your recruits, so try to space out your Fast Pass+ selections to allot time for training.

    Camille, we now do a pre-park opening breakfast reservation at Hollywood & Vine so that we can enter the park before it opens. On our last visit, our breakfast reservation was for 8:40 a.m. We arrived to the park by about 8:15 a.m., then took the girls to sign-up before checking-in for breakfast. We also purchase Memory Maker to get the digital photos taken by the PhotoPass photographer at Jedi Training.

    We always take time to stare down Kylo Ren and visit Chewbacca in Star Wars Launch Bay. We usually go after our Fast Pass+ selections. Hopefully the times will be posted soon, but in the meantime, I suggest you check the times for another day to get an idea of what the possible times may be for your visit. Remember that character experiences can change, especially since we are trying to save the galaxy from the Dark Side!

    May the Force be with you,
