Description And Comments
Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple is staged several times daily to the left of the Star Tours building entrance, opposite Backlot Express. If you want your young Skywalkers-in-training to appear on stage, visit the sign-up area at the ABC Sound Studio building (across from Star Tours) as early in the morning as possible; also, cast members are sometimes stationed outside the entrance just before and after the park opens. Spots go quickly and are first-come, first-served.
A Windham, New Hampshire, mom describes a common conundrum:
I’m guessing many families will have to choose between racing to Toy Story Mania! to ride or racing to sign up for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple (children MUST be present at sign-up). We hopped on TSMM, then crossed the park to sign up for Jedi. By the time we got there, we were pushed to the 2:20 p.m. show, which eliminated the possibility of leaving for a nap after lunch.
Once on stage, these miniature Jedi are trained in the ways of The Force and do battle against the likes of Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, and the Seventh Sister Inquisitor (from the Star Wars Rebels TV show). If all this sounds too intense, it’s not—Storm Troopers provide comic relief, and just as in the movies, the good guys always win.
Surprisingly popular, given that Disney hasn’t promoted it at the same level of hype as other shows. In the summer, grab drinks at Backlot Express, right next door, about 20 minutes before the show starts.
If Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple is at the top of your child’s hit parade, a mom from Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, suggests checking the weather forecast before you head to the park:
There are Jedi Training shows throughout the day until 8 p.m., and the line to get signed up was huge! This show is a big draw for kids and parents. The only problem is that the show is on an outdoor stage and if there is rain, the show is canceled. One mom told me that this was the second day in a row she had tried to get her kids signed up. The day before, they were signed up, dressed in their Jedi robes, [but when] a few raindrops fell the show was canceled. Since all shows are filled, there is no chance to rebook that day. It seems that Disney needs to rethink this show and put it under some kind of cover; nothing makes for a more unhappy day than disappointing 15 little kids and even more parents after a lot of anticipation and waiting around.
To sign up your children to go on stage, visit the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost shop early in the morning: spots are first come, first served.
