So what kind of things did the Jedi Masters teach the little padawans?

Beginner sword play mostly and using the jedi mind trick to get their parents to buy things at the park.

Here is a video of a little girl dressed up as Darth Vader at the Jedi Training Academy. She had some great interaction with the  Stormtroopers and Darth Maul during the show.

That's awesome Paul!  As soon as my one year old is big enough, we're going!

1 of these days i'll find the video (its on tape  :-[ ) of the main jedi guy actually loosing his grip on the light-up saber and accidently flinging the saber behind/off the stage. but i'll give the guy credit he kept on going with the performance. no one yelled or screamed so i guess it didn't hit anyone on the other side. me n wife were sitting behind the soundboard guy and he was laughing his a$$ off.

That's awesome.  We're going in June - any tips for sign up or reservations?  How soon can you reserve a spot for this?

It gets filled up pretty fast.  I want to say that we got there within the first hour of the park opening and the boys were in the 5:00 or 6:00 show.  Granted, this was at Disney World, but I'm sure the same can be said at Disneyland.

At Disneyland you just get there about five to ten minutes before. The Jedi will ask for volunteers. The kids jump up and down and he randomly picks about thirty kids from the audience. Kids typically range in age from four to nine.

Jedi Training Academy will be getting the same updates that Disneyland Paris recently got. One of the new effects will be to levitate R2-D2. My bet it is moving inside to the new Star Wars Launching Pad inside Innoventions.
