    Hi! We are traveling to WDW next week with my *almost* 4 year old. We are going to HS our first day. Is there any wiggle room for the age requirements for Jedi training, or must he be already be 4 to enroll?

    Hi, there!

     Rachel, I am so excited to hear about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You're just days away - wahoo!

     My two younglings love training with Jedi Knights to battle the evil forces of the Dark Side when we visit Disney's Hollywood Studios. My oldest youngling has been participating in Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple for several years now, but my youngest youngling has only recently been old enough to activate his lightsaber at the ancient Jedi temples. I totally understand your predicament. We once were on vacation just two weeks before my little guy's fourth birthday. He so wanted to learn how to use the Force alongside his big brother, but *almost* 4-years old sadly wasn't old enough. When younglings register for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, they're asked by a Cast Member to state their age to verify eligibility. My little guy was so disappointed that he couldn't say he was officially 4-years old, but he was happy to be in the audience and watch his big brother battle Darth Vader, and even happier to go to Tatooine Traders afterwards to custom-design his very own lightsaber. 

     There's many more Star Wars adventures to be had at Disney's Hollywood Studios! My boys especially love riding Star Tours - The Adventures Continue and stopping by Star Wars Launch Bay to visit with Chewbacca, BB-8, and Kylo Ren. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Rachel. Wishing you the most magical vacation next week!
