May the force be with you...

Bobby loves, loves, loves Star Wars. At a very early age, he began watching the original movies and playing with anything Star Wars. Disneyland has sectioned off a small portion of an outdoor amphitheater for the Jedi Training Academy. Youngsters of all ages crowd around the stage before the start of each show in hopes of being selected to "train" with the Jedi's and fight the dark side. This year, both Katie and Bobby were selected to participate in the Jedi Training Academy. They had a blast!!!

The force is strong in these young ones...

Lightsaber training begins!
(Notice Katie's princess hands as she trains! :))

Katie fighting Lord Vader!

Bobby fighting Darth Maul!

Lord Vader tries one last time to tempt the
young padawans to turn to the dark side...

Bobby meets a Storm Trooper up close!

The kids loved meeting the characters from Star Wars. In the words of the Master Yoda "Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size do you? Hmm? May the force be with you..."


  1. That's soo cool!! They must've had a blast!! What a great memory!

  2. OH EM GEEEE! My boys would have LOVED to participate in something like that when they were young (or now....seriously). How exciting. They must have loved it!
