Jedi Training at Walt Disney World: What You Need to Know

Disney Jedi Training at Hollywood Studios is a fun interactive Star Wars experience. On our last visit to Walt Disney World we had the opportunity to participate in the Jedi Training Academy. It is open to all visitors at Disney Hollywood Studios with an admission ticket. This was one of my kids favorite activities from our visit to Disney World and they are still talking about it. If you have a Star Wars fan in the family I highly suggest you add Jedi Training Academy to your must see list. It is a mix of show and interactive experience that your entire family will enjoy!

Adventures of a Kitchen Rookie

I have to let you in on a little secret.  I don’t cook. Ever.  My husband does most of the meal cooking and shopping and I do the kids lunches and snacks.  This year one of my goals is to try new things and not be afraid to fail.  I felt that this would be a perfect time to face my fear of cooking. With that in mind, last week I started a 3-day adventure of a kitchen rookie with Hello Fresh food.
