Jedi Training Academy at Disneyland

The Jedi Training Academy at Disneyland is one of our family favorites.  My boys are big Star Wars fans so being "officially" trained as a Padawan is heaven for them.  Being picked to be one of the Padawans can be tough if you go at the wrong time, but we've learned a few tricks.  Think of it this way... when Disneyland isn't busy - neither will the Jedi Training Academy and your children's chances of being picked sky rocket!  Although I have to admit there is something about the energy of the crowd on a busy day when the viewing area is packed!  The Jedi Master is always very entertaining and every show is slightly unique thanks to the creativity of the young Padawans.

If you have bashful or hesitant kids grab lunch or an early dinner and watch one of the shows first.  They serve burgers (including veggie), chicken tenders for kids, sandwiches and the usual walk-up window foods.

Jedi Training Academy normally runs about 6 times a day, (about once an hour- 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, etc.).  Be sure to check the exact starting times on the Disneyland website so you can plan accordingly.

Below are several clips from our most recent trip:
