    when are the Star Wars may 4th plans being released and are you doing a after dark for may 4 th please

    Hello there, Patricia!

    I can tell the force is strong with you. Like you, I absolutely adore Star Wars and eagerly await any May the 4th Festivity announcements at Disney Parks. I haven’t seen any news about festivities just yet, but make sure to check the Disney Parks Blog for updates in the next month or so. Last year, they highlighted a few of the May the 4th festivities available at Disney Parks on the blog.

    I’m not sure what your exact plans are, but I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate May the 4th than taking a voyage aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. My family traveled aboard the Halcyon last year, and between the crew, galactic meals, and immersive experiences, it was one of my family’s favorite vacations ever. Besides the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, you may also want to look into special experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, like building your own lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop - Handbuilt Lightsabers, constructing a droid at the Droid Depot or listening to DJ R-3X at Oga’s Cantina. I suggest making reservations for these special experiences 60 days before your vacation since they are very popular. I also recommend purchasing a Wookie Cookie, a Chewie-inspired cookie treat, from the Backlot Express.  

    As for Disney After Hours events, I’m excited to share that additional dates for Disney’s Hollywood Studios After Hours events are being added beginning May 3 (we don’t know the exact event dates yet). Starting March 3, 2023, you can purchase event tickets for Disney’s Hollywood Studios After Hours events. I suggest going online early on March 3 to make sure you can purchase your event tickets since Disney’s Hollywood Studios After Hours events are one of the most popular. 

    I hope your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is out of this world. I may be the planDisney panelist you are looking for if you have any other Star Wars-related questions. Send me a direct question if you want any other recommendations.  

    May the magic be with you!
