Less Waiting at Jedi Training Academy. It’s Now Sign-Up Only. Now with Update!

You no longer have to rush over to Jedi Training Academy in Hollywood Studios and wait in line until it’s time for your show. Instead, little Padawans can sign up and then go enjoy the park. Kids will be given a return time for later in the day. Space is still first-come, first served, but this means a lot less waiting and a lot more enjoying the park.

The change first took place during Jersey Week, one of the busier weeks this time of year, so it may just be temporary. We know that Disney has been doing this when it gets more crowded, but for now, proceed with the assumption that this is how it will be from now on with the possibility of reverting back to waiting in line.

UPDATE: For a full review of how the new process works, please read here.


  1. Oooh I like this!! It would be great to know my daughter definitely can do it (assuming we get there early) instead of just going to the show and hoping she gets picked!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Stephanie, it’s so much better this way. Even the most recent change before this, where kids just had to wait in line, was better than the original process which was where they were picked by a cast member. As you can imagine, LOTS of kids were in tears. At least now you know you have a time and can do it. It’s a big deal for little kids!

    I would still get fast passes for Toy Story Midway Mania first and then head over to JTA. If there are two or more adults, send the fastest adult over for fastpasses to TSMM and the rest of you go over to JTA. Chances are, you might get in right away.

    Good luck. Let me know how it works out.
