May the Fourth Be With You at Disney’s Hollywood StudiosPilar Clark
And, now that I have you humming it (you’re welcome), some exciting news of the Star Wars variety.
Yep, it’s a thing. An annual fan-proclaimed thing that happens to fall on May 4 – a date that Star Wars fans worldwide have made intergalactically awesome by proclaiming it “May the Fourth.”
As in, “May the Fourth be with you.”
See what they did there?
Separate from Disney’s month-long Star Wars Weekends – which starts May 17 – this Limited Time Magic celebration will feature special Star Wars entertainment, characters, commemorative merch, a Star Wars dance party and a Star Wars-themed fireworks show.
And, according to Disney Parks Blog, you might even find yourself sitting next to Chewbacca on Star Tours The Adventures Continue. Star Wars characters will making surprise appearances on the 3-D attraction, hanging out beside guests.
Nerding A LOT.
A special edition of Jedi Training Academy also is planned, with parents invited to join their children on-stage for the training and final showdown with the Empire.
When the sun goes down, galactic fun lights the night for a dance party (Lobot from Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back takes over as DJ) that will be highlighted by a special Star Wars fireworks show.
“May the Fourth Be With You” Limited Time Magic park activities and shows are included in regular admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
