As suspected by many for over a month,  Jedi Training Academy at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will close from October 4, 2015 until an unannounced date in December 2015.  The new version will reopen as Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple and will feature characters from the popular Disney XD – Star Wars Rebels series.  Kids will be able to continue training with trial Lightsabers once the new show opens.

Way to go Disney...my family has had this trip planned 9 months ago and I just found out the Jedi Training is cancelled which was the one thing my son was looking forward to. So far not impressed with Disney at all

This was one of the biggest things on our to-do list too. I don't really understand the need for closing. While a ride needs revamping, I get, but this is just putting kids together with a guy dressed as Vader. Star Tours isn't closing, so I assume the stage beside it is still there. Why can't you keep kids' dreams alive by letting them simply go on that stage? If that stage is gone...why can't you simply move the kids to the Ewok Village...or ANYwhere. Again, it's just kids and a guy in a Vader suit. How hard is it to continue this when so many are looking forward to it? I am disappointed in Disney as well.

Because they are building a new set and training crew for new show.

Ourr 4 1/2 year old also on the spectrum, as well as suffers from SPD and Dyspraxia. This is what he was looking forward to the most (as well as the train in MK). I realize that attractions have to close, but it is such a bummer. I hope you and your family are still able to have a magical trip. There is a train in AK which takes you to Rafiki's Planet Watch (where you can pet animals and see some cool things).

This is so disappointing. We are going in November. My son with autism loves trains, especially the Magic Kingdom trains and those will be shut down. Now I find out that the Jedi Training will be shut down too and my daughter and our friends' children won't be able to participate!

This announcement may explain why they signed up 30 kids for the session my kids did today. Half fought Darth Vader onstage and half fought Darth Maul on the ground below.
