Little Girl Turns to the Dark Side

I did not take this video, nor was I there when it occurred (although I would sacrifice a minor limb to have been!), but I would be seriously remiss to not include this on MYWTM.

This video went viral and has been viewed over 3 million times, but it never gets old for me. And as much as I love the Jedi (is that the plural? Jedis?), I think Sariah Gallego may be my personal hero. This one’s for you, Sariah!

The Jedi Training Academy is an interactive show where children ages 3-12 are chosen from the audience, given Jedi robes and light sabers, and then fight Darth Vader or Darth Maul.

I’m currently searching for a family with a child or children who want to participate in the Jedi Training Academy to be featured on My Year With The Mouse. If you are going to be at Disneyland sometime between May 2nd and June 14th send me an email at I cannot guarantee that your child will be chosen, but I’ve seen a few tricks to up your chances and we’ll do our best!

Don’t forget–it’s not too late to enter the GIVEAWAY. Who doesn’t want something for free?

    The plural for Jedi is “Jedi.”
