Jedi Training Academy

A major highlight for Dawson was the new Jedi Training Academy at Hollywood Studios.  He is slightly obsessed with Star Wars at the moment - he's seen Star Wars 4, 5, and 6, read the Star Wars character encyclopedias multiple times, and has accumulated lots of little action figures that he likes to play with.  His Star Wars knowledge exceeds that of anyone I know (in fact, he knew the answers to all of the obscure questions they asked the kids during the Star Wars trivia part of the training).  So he was really excited about the opportunity to sign up for the Jedi Training Academy.  We got to the park early so that he could dash over and sign up for a spot, as we heard they fill up quickly.  He made it into the first class/show and really, really loved it.

After a brief training session, he headed to the stage with fellow trainees.

Darth Vader arrives - a dramatic moment.  ;-)

Dawson's turn to battle Darth Vader.

Great action shot of the duel.

He received a diploma for completing his Jedi training.
