My 4 year old son loves Star Wars. We didn't get into Jedi Training over Stars Weekend. We are heading back in October for MNSSHP. Are there any reasons he wouldn't be selected?

Hi there Sallie!
Congratulations on your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World!
I just arrived on property myself today and I'm headed to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party next week ... we can't wait! It's a spook-tacularly
good time for the whole family!
I'm sorry to hear that your son didn't get the chance to be a part of Star Wars: Jedi Training Academy
during your last visit. In order to be sure that your young Padawan is able to be a part of this wonderful experience during your next visit, simply ensure that you arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios early in the day to sign up. Now, rather than children being chosen at random from the audience to participate in the Training, you sign up in the morning for any one of the sessions happening throughout the day. There's usually 10-12 (sometimes more) sessions daily and about 15 children, aged 4-12, are able to participate in each session.
Upon arrival at the park, simply head back towards American Idol and you'll find signs directing you to the Jedi Training Academy sign-ups. I've included a link for you which has detailed information about the experience and the sign up location. I'd recommend that you plan to sign up between 9-9:30am in order to secure a spot that's convenient for your family (be sure to work around any existing Dining Reservations you may already have booked). Most days, sessions begin about 20 minutes after the park opens and occur approximately every 50 minutes until dinner time.
If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to write me back Sallie! Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
