You cannot add signing up for Jedi Training Academy to a personalized touring plan, but we have a workaround and some advice below.
Jedi Training Academy is an interactive show staged multiple times each day in Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida and Disneyland Park in California. If you have children you want trained as Jedi as part of the show, an adult and the child participants must together sign-up in advance to participate. This is a popular thing, and we recommend that you head to the sign-up area immediately after entering the park when it opens. This minimizes your wait and ensures the largest selection of potential show times.
When choosing the time of your show, we recommend that you take into account:
- Your Daily Schedule. Participating in Jedi Training Academy takes awhile. Not only will you need to sign-up, but you the child needs to return about 30 minutes after the scheduled show time, plus you'll need to stay a a couple of minutes after to return the robe.
- Wait Times. Participating in the first show of the day means that you're sacrificing some of that early-in-the-day time when ride waits are relatively low. Picking a show in the mid-afternoon (when waits are typically the longest) is likely more efficient in terms of waiting.
- Your FastPass+ and Meal Times. Do not pick a Jedi Training Academy time that will conflict with other activities that you value.
- Weather. If there is a 100% chance of rain between 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM, don't schedule a show during that time. It will likely be canceled.
So how do you accommodate this in a Personalized Touring Plan?
We do not track the wait time dynamics of signing up for Jedi Training Academy, and we cannot we predict what time slots will be available or which slot you want to pick. For that reason, we recommend that you simply go there first thing when the park opens. You can add a break to account for this, or you could set your plan to start 15 or 30 minutes later than park opening to account for the sign-up process. Basically, the sign-up process pushes back the rest of your day.
Later in the day, you'll need to account for participation in the show. We suggest simply using a break to block off the amount of time you expect to spend on the Jedi Training experience. If you are told to return at 12:40 PM to participate in a 1:10 PM show, create a 1-hour in-park break starting at 12:40 PM. That should work well enough.
