Things To Know About Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple at Walt Disney World

It’s no secret that lifelong Disney fans usually bring children into the world who grow up to appreciate and love all things Disney. The same is true of Star Wars fans—fandom for the galaxy far, far away often breeds more Star Wars fandom, even in the tiniest of Jedis. But if you haven’t had the time to train your Jedi apprentice quite yet, or if you’re hoping for the full Jedi training experience for your little ones, look no further than Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort, where Jedi training is a daily occurrence at the Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple experience. But before you begin your training, check out these things to know about the experience.


8. Training is available to kids ages preschool through tweens.

Do you have a tiny Jedi hopeful among your troops? Or maybe you have school-age children who’ve recently become mesmerized by the fandom of Star Wars and want to learn about becoming Jedi knights. Either way, you’re in luck, as training is open to kids of all ages (and kids at heart—we’re talking about you, Mom and Dad—can watch as their young Jedi Masters learn what it takes to wield the power of the Light Side against the forces of the Dark Side.)

7. You’ve got to register first.

Be sure to register for the experience as soon as you arrive at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You don’t want your little ones disappointed, so be sure they are registered to participate in the training by visiting the Indiana Jones Adventurer’s Outpost between 50s Prime Time Café and the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular. Registration opens when the park opens for the day so don’t miss out! Make sure your young Jedi hopeful is with you at registration.

6. No FastPass is available.

Sadly, FastPass service is not available for this experience, and availability is on a first-come, first-served basis.

5. Inclement weather can put a damper on the training.

Sometimes the weather can wreak havoc on the Trials of the Temple experience. Because training takes place outside on the stage near the Star Tours attraction, inclement weather can lead to a cancellation of the experience. But show up at your assigned time anyway because occasionally Cast Members will offer kids an alternative experience if they show is cancelled.

4. Don’t be late!

You don’t want to arrive late for your child’s assigned time to enjoy the Jedi Training experience. In fact, participants should arrive 30 minutes before their scheduled time. Arriving late may result in your child losing his or her training spot.

3. Spots are not guaranteed.

Unfortunately, there are a limited number of participants admitted during each training session. Because of this, it’s possible to be denied a training spot simply because there are no spots available. For the best chance at scoring a spot, get to the park early and make registering your first priority.

2. A robe and a parade (of sorts)

Each young Padawan who participates in the training session will be issued a Jedi robe (to be returned after the show), and shortly before the training session begins, youngsters will get to march along the thoroughfare toward the stage where the training experience takes place.

1. Keep your eyes peeled for those from the Dark Side!

During each training session, young Jedi hopefuls will be taught the basics of what it takes to be a Jedi—from wielding a light saber to fending off even the most villainous members of the Dark Side. Will your little Padawan go toe-to-toe with Darth Vader or Kylo Ren?

Rebekah loves exploring the history of the parks, the genius behind the Magic in the person of Walt Disney, and she is intrigued by all things Disney World and Disney Imagineering. When in the parks, Rebekah and her husband Scott make the most of their time by enjoying every minute with their Fab Four, by delving deeper into Walt’s vision for the parks and into the history behind the Walt Disney World Resort, and by photographing the many different types of architecture at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and on the World Showcase at EPCOT. When she’s not in the parks, Rebekah is excitedly setting travel dates and planning her family’s next adventure to their happy place deep within the Sunshine State. On breaks from planning her next trip, Rebekah is a writer, journalist and children’s author, penning children’s books about kids with special needs that she affectionately calls “believement-achievement” stories.
