    Ouch!

    Licks red stuff from lip. That's not tomato juice, that's blood!!

    Anyway, haha, in response to the exclusion of small ones, the little ones will be able to ride those in the future, so I have no problem at all with rides like Indiana Jones or Space Mountain. I remember growing up super scared of those rides anyway so it was all fine with me!

    Whereas all the new stuff just for the kiddies, will never be experienced by those who are older. And I don't think that's fair. Do you know how uncool it is to see kids bouncing around Goofy's Bounce House having fun... only to never go in for myself? Kids can look at Space Mountain or the Matterhorn as a goal. "I will conquer that some day..."

    Ok back to your regular scheduled arguments and debates.

    How's this for simplicity. Star Wars takes place in space. Space (still) represents the future. Space is Tomorrowland. Many people feel that the answer to potential human extinction is in space science and space colonization.

    Besides, if you were Disney, where would you put a Star Wars ride? In Fantasyland? Then you'd have twice as many people saying, "Why didn't they put it in Tomorrowland, it'd fit in a lot better there."

    Yes, I know: "a long time ago..." But as stated before, that's just a cool "Once upon a time"-like storybook intro to a fantasy film.

    But, hey, I'm not against taking Star Tours out of Tomorrowland and building a whole Star Wars theme park as the third gate!

    What's that smell? Oh, it's the litterbox....Which is where this is going to head soon if we don't all settle down a wee little bit.

    I agree with most people that who cares if it isn't technically correct as far as timelines and voice overs. It's meant for the kids, and they don't really care about it's accuracy. Like Frecky says, Her 6 year old wouldn't care. And it IS enjoyable by parents, when I went it was PACKED all day with parents and teens watching it. Yes its kid oriented and meant FOR kids, but that doesn't mean adults can't enjoy it as well. Is finding nemo and monsters inc meant for adults? No, it's geared toward little kids, but MANY adults love that movie...I love that movie.

    Re: Observations from My First Experience with the Jedi Training Academy

    I watched the shows a couple times while I was there in Nov. In enjoyed it. I loved seeing the characters.

    As far as why it is in tomorrowland. Well it is future technology. Didn't you know that the Darths are both not real and are a hardlight hologram technology.

    Re: Observations from My First Experience with the Jedi Training Academy

    It was pretty funny in a trainwreck sort of way. I saw some little kid really go to town on Darth Vader. I'll have to check out the show more often to see what these crazy kids do.

    It's not something that appeals to me, but I'm sure a lot of parents get a kick out of seeing their kids on-stage.

    This totally TOTALLY puzzles me.
    even as a child when I saw that I always thought it was based like we are really far into the future and they are just telling a story about what happened in their past. I mean we don't have any of the high tech stuff so it had to have happened really far into our future...anyway, thats how I saw it as a child and still do I guess.

    as for the show. I thought it was very entertaining. I still can't wrap my mind around why adults would want to participate though. The kids seem to like it.

    I enjoy the show. It really dosent follow the star wars timeline correctly but then again either does star tours. I personally think they need to increase the storm trooper quota to at least 10

    Just for the record, the younglings among us really should be the only ones participating since, according to the internal logic of the story, the Jedi Order is reluctant to allow Padawans to begin their training later in life. So, even though children are the only guests interacting, there is a creative justification for that decision.

    I don't see much fault with the storyline except a battle by the masters in the end.

    Well, it's Darth Maul hanging out with Darth Vader. But that's no big deal. It's just fun.

    Those little kids look so crushed when they aren't selected.
    Get there early, try and get the first showing of the day. And good luck!

    Children are wise enough to enjoy things for the moment and not analyze the crap out of them until there is no spontaneous fun left in the event.

    I'd say that makes children MUCH smarter than some adults.

    Re: Observations from My First Experience with the Jedi Training Academy

    I like the show, I just think it goes a little too long, but then again that happens when you pick a lot of kids. I think it's cool, the Darth Maul guy is awesome.
