    Any Star Wars special events for May 4th?

    Greeting Frances,

    My family loves all things Star Wars so being at Walt Disney World on May the 4th is a blast for us. The best place in the galaxy to celebrate Star Wars is of course at Hollywood Studios. It is next-level immersion for Star Wars fans and a great way to get recruits to join the cause.

    There are special treats to eat while celebrating "May the 4th Be With You" specifically at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney Springs. Check out the foodie guide for the occasion and create a plan to stock up on your favorites! I am particularly excited about the Princess of Alderaan Shake because it looks delicious and is photo-worthy! The Lightsaber Churro is also a must-do because what is better than a lightsaber you can dip in chocolate and eat? Don't forget to head over to Disney Springs for some more Star Wars foodie fun. Amorette’s Patisserie has epic mini cakes for occasions throughout the year but the Stormtrooper Petit Cake is truly out of this world. 

    Aside from food, you can spend your day immersed in the magic at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge where you can interact with characters like Chewbacca and Stormtroopers throughout the day. It is also a great day to choose one of the Enchanting Extra experiences like building a custom lightsaber at Savi's Workshop or making your new best friend at Droid Depot. May the 4th is also not complete without a ride on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance so be sure to use your My Disney Experience app to make an Individual Lighting Lane reservation for this day because it is sure to be packed!

    Last but not least, the theme parks will feature special merchandise available for purchase to commemorate the event. You will typically have to join a virtual queue to purchase these items but that also ensures you don't spend your day waiting in line! My favorite part of being at Hollywood Studios on this day is the people-watching. The Star Wars-inspired outfits are fantastic and the joy of fellow Star Wars fanatics is contagious.

    May the Force Be With You,
