Jedi Training Academy in Walt Disney World

Jedi Training Academy is featured daily in Disneyland and Disney World.  Both have their differences and for the purposes of this article I will be focusing on Disney World.

Jedi Training takes place at Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort and runs throughout the day with approximately 20 participants (ages 4-12) as Jedi Younglings.  The best part is… Jedi Training is free of charge with your park admission ticket!

Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the article for a full length video.  😉

In Hollywood Studios the sign up process for Jedi Training begins early in the morning at park opening, it is wise to line up at the park entrance before the park even opens.  You will sign up at the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost located between the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular and the 50’s Prime Time Cafe. The sign up line actually begins at the entrance to the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular attraction.  Once you sign up, you will then be given a time and a ticket to return and participate.

Jedi-Training-Tickets
When you leave the sign up area you should have your ticket to return (middle), you can get some neat Force Push post cards.

After you have secured your spot into Jedi Training you may enjoy your day throughout Hollywood Studios until your time to return.  You MUST arrive back at the sign up location, 30 minutes prior to your performance time or your spot will be given to a person waiting on standby, and trust me there are a lot of them.

Be sure to take a bathroom break before checking in at the Indiana Jones Outpost.  While the children wait they are given a bottle of water.  Once everyone has checked in, the children are lined up from smallest to tallest.

Jedi-Training-Line-up

After everyone is in line they are all given Jedi Robes before their training starts.  One parent is asked to walk by each child to the training area to get a photopass card from your show photographer.  Since “Jedi Training” became “Jedi Training, Trials of the Temple” in 2015, there are now 2 different stages in the Jedi Training area (still side by side).  One stage will fight Darth Vader and one will fight the Seventh Sister.  Because of the 2 stages, there are 2 Photopass photographers, be sure that you get the correct card for the stage your child is on.

Jedi-Training-Line-up-robes
The younglings are taken out to the training grounds where they wait for their Jedi Master.

After a short introduction the Padawans are brought onto the stage where the Jedi Master instructs them in a simple combination of lightsaber attacks.  Of course they are using “Training” lightsabers and not the real thing.

Once the younglings have their training well under way a couple of storm troopers and Darth Vader appear and try to get the children to join the ‘Dark Side’.

Jedi_Training_Trials-of-temple-1

Each Jedi Trainee faces off with Darth Vader or the Seventh Sister using the skills that they where taught.

Jedi_Training_Trials-of-temple-2

Once Darth Vader realizes that he has been defeated and that none of the young Padawans will join the Dark Side, he retreats and Yoda congratulates the Jedi Training Academy graduates.  The Jedi Master announces the graduates to the audience and the robes are gathered in exchange for a special Jedi Training pin.  Be sure to wear this pin proudly to show off your completion of the Jedi Training Academy.

I strongly recommend the Jedi Training experience to anyone with even a slight interest in Star Wars.

Don’t forget to purchase your Memory Maker photo package so that you can get all of the wonderful pictures that the Disney Photographers take & then be sure and add special Star Wars boarders once you arrive home.  If you have purchased Memory Maker, look for the Photopass photographer during your Jedi Training session & ask them for a photopass card at the end of the training.  They will hand you a card that is linked to the photos from your session.  Once you arrive home to download your photos, you will be able to add all sorts of neat boarders to the photos.  You may want to take that PhotoPass card to a Disney photo center & have them add the photos of only your child/children to your Memory Maker account.  If you add the PhotoPass card number later on, you will have pictures of all of the children that participated in Jedi Training that day.

Thank you for reading my article.

Walt Disney World expands Minnie Van Service

If you have ever needed to get somewhere more quickly than the Disney transportation runs, you know that Disney’s Minnie Van Service comes in handy.

2018_Mini_Van.jpg

Disney’s own version of an uber, but with a special Disney touch, and ease of use through their app, is now offered at ALL Walt Disney World resorts and has even expanded to offer service to select surrounding resorts and the Orlando airport.

Of course this does not come without a cost and the most recent expansion announcement stated that the new pricing system will be based on distance.
If you want to get somewhere quickly & in style, the Mini Vans are a great option!

Disney Parks Blog released the following:

Minnie Van service continues to whisk Guests all over Walt Disney World® Resort property, and beginning Sept. 14, 2018, the popular service is expanding to even more Guests at Bonnet Creek, Flamingo Crossings and Hotel Plaza Boulevard resorts. Your Clients can join in on the fun right from the Lyft app on their smartphone to request and pay for their own private Disney ride.

As we recently shared, Minnie Van airport shuttles are also available to guests traveling to and from Orlando International Airport MCO, and can be scheduled in advance.  Please note Minnie Van airport shuttles are available only between Walt Disney World Resort hotels and Orlando International Airport.

In the coming days, guests will also see new distance-based pricing when they choose Minnie Van service. Pricing will be based on the destination within Walt Disney World® Resort.

Will you be giving the Minnie Van a try on your next Walt Disney World?

Epcot Illuminations Fireworks will end in 2019

Epcot’s beloved fireworks show has fascinated many with an inspiring and uplifting message for almost 20 years.  This popular nighttime display has encouraged guests of all ages to line up hours in advance to get a good spot for viewing.  Today Disney has announced that the show will come to a close at the end of the summer in 2019 and be immediately replaced with an updated show surrounding the park’s new themes.

2018_Epcot_Illuminations

Disney Parks Blog announced the following information earlier today:

After nearly 20 years of delighting Epcot® Guests with the emotional story of humanity told through music, fireworks, light torches and more, we wanted to let you know that “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” will be ending in the second half of next year. The Disney Parks Live Entertainment team is already busy creating new thrills to debut immediately following the conclusion of “IllumiNations,” continuing the tradition of nightly entertainment on the World Showcase Lagoon.

“IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,” which is currently planned to run to the end of summer 2019, has entertained millions of guests gathered around World Showcase Lagoon sharing the light and a story since it debuted in October 1999 as part of the Walt Disney World® Millennium Celebration. During the coming year, we’ll be celebrating this classic show, so guests still have plenty of time to experience it again and again, as excitement builds for what’s next.

As we’ve previously shared, we’ve got big plans for our multi-year transformation of Epcot, with new experiences that will “Wow!” guests while keeping true to the original vision of the park. And the all-new nighttime fireworks spectacular coming to Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon will be part of the park’s exciting evolution.

The new show joins several previously announced experiences coming to Epcot, including the highly-anticipated “Guardians of the Galaxy” roller coaster attraction, a “Ratatouille”-inspired attraction in World Showcase, a new table-service restaurant adjacent to Mission: SPACE and much more!

A part of me will miss the popular show in Epcot, but the other part of me is excited to see what comes next.  Stay tuned for more updates & information.

Join Snow White for a Meal at Artist Point this Winter

Soon a new character dining experience will debut at the Artist Point restaurant in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.  You will be able to meet four very unique characters including Snow White, Grumpy, Dopey & the Evil Queen herself.  A prix fix menu will be offered making me think that this will be a signature dining experience requiring two table service credits if you are on the Disney Dining Plan.

Reservations are NOW open for dates beginning on December 16th!
Pricing is $55 for adults and $33 for children ages 3-9 (tax & gratuity is not included).
Each Guest will receive one of each appetizer, their choice of entrée, and one of each dessert as well as their choice of non-alcoholic fountain beverage. All menu items are subject to change.

The storybook-themed dining experience begins with shared appetizers including Hunter’s Pie, Winter Squash Bisque and Wicked Shrimp Cocktail.

Guests can choose their entrée from a prix fixe menu. They can feast on the Royal Prime Rib Roast, Brother’s Grimm Roasted Chicken, Magic Mirror Slow Braised Veal Shank, Seafood Stew and Bashful’s Butter Poached Snapper. Or enjoy the vegetarian option – A Stroll Through Nature – featuring butternut squash, arugula and gnocchi.

Children can choose from a selection of kid-friendly items, including Royal Prime Rib Roast, Grilled Chicken, Princess Pasta and Vegetarian Steam Bun.

And for a sweet finale, guests can top the experience with a “Poison” Apple; Fairy Tale Gooseberry Pie; a sponge cake with chocolate gems and buttercream icing called Miner’s Treasures; and The Hunter’s Gift to the Queen, which features cracked maple popcorn with a ganache heart. Remember, the desserts are shared, so Guests don’t have to choose – they get one of each!

Meeting Snow White would be fun, Dopey and Grumpy are guaranteed to be a hit, but I will admit the opportunity to encounter the queen makes me the most excited.

This unique experience is sure to be popular and reservations will quickly fill once they open.  If you are one of my guests & would like me to assist you in looking for a reservation, please contact me and I will be happy to try & get a reservation as soon as I see that they are open.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will Welcome Oga’s Cantina

Black Spire Outpost is the location that you will be transported to when you enter the newest and most anticipated addition of the Disney Theme Parks.  Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open in Disneyland during the summer of 2019 and in Walt Disney World during late fall; this new captivating & immersive experience will certainly impress Star Wars fans of all ages.

2018_Ogas_Cantina_Star_Wars.jpg

This outpost, that has been labeled a smuggler’s planet, would not be complete without a Cantina.  I can already picture the lively music, one-of-a-kind drinks in unique souvenir cups (that I will certainly bring home) and a good representation of some intriguing Star Wars characters.  In fact, I imagine a steaming, bubbling, outer space drink that reminds me of a Flaming Mo, from Universal Studios, but on steroids.

Earlier today Disney released the following information:

No self-respecting remote outpost on the edge of the galaxy would call itself a smuggler’s planet without a cantina, and Black Spire Outpost is no exception. Today, we’re pleased to share more details for Oga’s Cantina, which will be serving pilots, bounty hunters, smugglers, locals and galactic travelers alike, when it opens in 2019.

Visitors come to this notorious local watering hole to unwind, conduct shady business, and maybe even encounter a friend…or a foe. Run by an intriguing alien proprietor, Oga Garra, the cantina adheres to a strict code of conduct that tries to keep its unruly patrons in check. But with a history of being a smugglers’ safe haven and a popular stopping point for those seeking to avoid the authorities, you can bet that the cantina has a story or two to tell.

Oga’s Cantina is the kind of establishment that attracts some of the most interesting and disreputable characters in the galaxy. And you never know when a stormtrooper or a familiar face will show up. Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using “otherworldly” methods, served in unique vessels. With choices for kids and libations for adults, the cantina will make for a great stop!

Musical entertainment is provided courtesy of RX-24, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid we first met in Star Tours, who has re-envisioned himself as the cantina’s DJ. As quirky and talkative as ever, he’s still trying to do his best on the job.

Your Clients will be able to listen to some unique music, taste the best drinks in the galaxy, and surround themselves with a colorful cast of characters. You never know what will happen at the cantina!

For a full list of what has been announced for the new land so far, CLICK HERE

As a HUGE Star Wars fan, I am on the edge of my seat to be one of the first to experience this new land next year.  Stay tuned to my blog & Facebook page for new & updated information.

New Toy Story Land Early Morning Magic

If you didn’t get that popular fastpass to Slinky Dog Dash or Alien Swirling Saucers, and you don’t like to wait in line, there is still hope if you’re willing to pay to play.

Toy_Story_Land-10

Disney has now released an added ticket option that allows guests into Toy Story Land to play from 7:30am to 8:45am for low crowds & practically non-existent lines.  The special ticketed event includes a continental breakfast until 10:00am and character greetings with Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Jessie. The continental breakfast features yogurt, fruit, pastries, and assorted cereal as well as your choice of a tasty main dish like avocado toast or fried chicken and cronut with maple glaze.  The breakfast will be available at a quick service dining location outside of Toy Story Land.

The nice part about this experience is that you can ride these popular attractions multiple times before the park ever opens to the public.  So go ahead… learn where that camera is on Slinky Dog Dash & warm up for your best PhotoPass photo bomb ever.  If you didn’t get it right the first time, just ride it again without waits several hours long.

Disney Early Morning Magic takes place beginning September 17th, 2018, on select Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m.  and experience costs $79 + tax for adults (10+) and $69 + tax for children (ages 3 – 9).  Tickets are limited and an admission ticket to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is also required & not included in the price.  This is a separate offering from the Extra Magic Hours which allows guests staying at Disney resorts into parks early on select days.

Tickets to this event sold in limited numbers.  If you are planning a Disney vacation and would like to add these tickets, contact Disney or your friendly travel agent (((me))).

2018_MNSSHP_Sorcerer_Card

Wondering what the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game is?  Head on over HERE & read all about the interactive park game.

Disney Parks Blog explains the story behind the bird as follows

“As the storyline behind the card goes: During one of his walks through the Adventureland, Merlin met the adorable Orange Bird. Merlin was so taken with the little fellow, that he created a brand new Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom spell in his honor.

On this new “Orange Bird’s Juice-o-Lanterns” spell card, Orange Bird celebrates Halloween in his own, sunny way by creating “Juice-o-Lanterns,” drawing funny faces on the oranges that grow near the Sunshine Tree.”

This special event card will be distributed separately (and in addition to) the regular Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card packs guests are given at this location. Guests must register to play with their party ticket and event wristband in order to get one.
