TSM - Toy Story Mania

Jedi Training sign up is now 1st come 1st serve, they start sign ups when park opens over at Star Tours, they give you a ticket with what time to come back, it fills up quick so you have to get there early.

For us Commandos this is great, since you get a confirmed time 1st thing in the AM, you don't have to have to waste time during the day inbetween shows trying to get a spot

A couple of things I just read about on my favorite blog It's A Disney World After All

- Lightning McQueen will be replacing Herbie The Love Bug in Lights, Motors, Action extreme Stunt Show in June

Rumor - Jedi Training is possibly moving to the Sounds Dangerous Building, with a possible living character initiative version of Yoda

I find that the info on this blog is very accurate, as a Commando I got to keep on top of this kind of info

I meant Toy Story Mania Fast Passes, which I understand are a must first thing. At Star Tours, I will sign my kids up to participate in Jedi Training. My oldest is really into Star Wars, so that is our biggest must do of the trip.

Do you know when this could happen. We're going in June, and I want to be sure I am on top of this one.

OKay. I'll put the pie on my list. I had some ADRs for Epcot, but just wasn't sure they were the best fit for us. I think we're going for counter service that day, unless anyone here has something better to recommend. The Electric Umbrella is counter service, right? I'm thinking Via Napoli is not? That might actually be something we could agree upon. I might breeze over and see if I could still get reservations for that.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to have to start reading this blog as well, I'd never heard of it before.

Right now it's only a rumor But IMO this is what I think could happen

1- it's already in the works and they unvail it during the Star Wars weekends

2- since Star Tours is going to mobbed when it opens (TSM lines will probably shorten up a bit) they are going to need the space where Jedi Training is now, it only makes sense to move and update it Depending on the crowd level that Star Tour attracts would depend on weather they move Jedi Training or not

I think this rumor will pan out, (when I have no idea) I also think that Star Tours FP's will be a heavy hit at rope drop

If we're any indication, you could be correct. We're now to this, so we're planning to use Unofficial Guide Touring plans, except for Star Tours. We'll still send a runner of TSM FPs, but our first ride will be Star Tours after signing up for Jedi Training. I suppose any other Star Wars fans may follow a similar strategy.

Be sure to check out some Disney blogs and WDW news, they keep adding stuff all the time and will keep you current, if you just use a guide you will miss out on alot of new things that are not in the books

Well, I certainly wouldn't want to miss out on anything. Do you recommend any specific blogs, etc.? I feel like the touring plans in the book are good place for me to start with my lack of experience, but I am very open to other sources of information.

OK Commando Club, please tell me how this works.

We are going to HW in August & will want to go on both the new Star Tours & Toy Story Mania. How do you get on both? Do you send 1 person to get fast passes for TSM & the rest of the family to wait on line for Star Tours? Or do you get fast passes for both? Can you have fast passes for 2 different rides? Sorry for all the questions!
