It helps to be little, sparkly, and dressed as Tinkerbell too. There weren't any kids with signs when we were there, but there was a boy in Jedi clothes (he was picked second). My sparkly little Jedi Tinkerbell was picked about halfway through and put front and center on the top stage - probably for laugh factor! She had a hard time with her light saber and needed quite a bit of extra assistance - which the Jedi master used for jokes She LOVED it though, and immediately began begging for her own light saber (which we bought) and talking about beating up "dark bader."

Here are two pics that were taken by the photopass photographer from the second time he was chosen. I loved these pics!


Great pics MommyWDreams.

I love that shot of him ducking....(at the instruction of the Master Jedi of course).

Thanks Hydro...that was one of my favorites too. I just LOVE the expression on his face in that picture. He meant business!

Are the children who are chosen expected to speak? My son has a significant speech delay, and while I know he'd LOVED to be chosen, he would not be able to answer questions or anything. Thanks!

Nope. They are only expected to follow training directions and even then when they can't the Jedi Master makes light of it and helps them.

Took my daughters this past week. We got there maybe 5 minutes before the show started and stood on the left side. Unfortunately, since we were pretty late in getting there, we were behind about 2 rows of kids/parents, so my kids didn't stand out much at all--the kids in front were either the same height or even taller! My girls didn't wear anything to stand out either.

BUT, we came armed with a sign that we made at home out of 3 pieces of bright pink construction paper taped together.



The Jedi picked some kids out, and then saw the sign. He actually took a few seconds to read it, and then actually laughed and called the girls up. They were SO incredibly excited. During the show, Darth Maul stalked by and gave the crowd his evil eye. I flashed him the sign, and the look on his face was priceless.

BTW, there were a whole lot of kids in the crowd, but I think we were the only ones with a sign. I am convinced they would not have been picked without it.

Did someone answer if you can bring in your own lightsaber to the park? My son has 3 already so I really don't want to spend $20-25 on another.

Thank you for the tips I know this will be the highlight of the trip for my DS 5 wether he is picked or not. He's a huge star wars fan and pretends with his lightsabers at home all the time.

It sounds like you think kids need their own lightsaber for the JTA. Not so. The JTA provides lightsabers to each kid selected.

If you have a lightsaber you can bring it but it will not make any difference for JTA.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I did know they provided them I just know that my DS will want to buy one if he doesn't have his with him . . . and probably even if he does. He already has 3 yet he still asks if we can buy another. How many lightsabers does one kid need?
