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 onstage, visit the sign-up area at the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost as early in the morning as possible. Spots go quickly and are first-come, first-served.

A Windham, New Hampshire, mom describes a common conundrum:

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 Toy Story Mania!, 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.

A Melbourne, Australia, mom laments the investment of time:

Jedi Training can quickly derail a touring plan It requires that the kids be there more than 30 minutes before the show; add in the show and the time to sign up in the morning, and you’re looking at a 90-plus-minute investment. That wasn’t in the plan, but it was my son’s favorite part of our last visit.

Once onstage, 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: Stormtroopers provide comic relief, and just as in the movies, the good guys always win.

Touring Tips

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 before you head to the park:

Because the show is on an outdoor stage, the show gets canceled if it rains, and because all shows are filled, there is no chance to rebook the same day. Disney needs to rethink this show and put it under some kind of cover. Nothing makes for a more unhappy day than disappointed kids and parents after a lot of anticipation and waiting around.
