What is May the Fourth Be With You Day?
I honestly have no idea where it started – probably as soon as the first Star Wars movie came out back in the day. Or maybe someone just decided a few years ago that May the Fourth would be Star Wars Day – but now it is!
I mean you get it right – May the Fourth, may the force be with you? It’s a day to celebrate all things Star Wars.
And if you’re really into Star Wars, according to my friend Tessa a Star Wars Disney Cruise is the way to go. They did a Star Wars cruise last year, and it sounded incredible. Even better if you could actually book one sailing on Star Wars Day!
Bucket list for sure!
Or if there are tickets left, you could sign up for Disney After Hours at Hollywood Studios for May the Fourth this year. The lineup of characters and entertainment sounds amazing!
Ways to Celebrate Star Wars Day
Whether you’re looking for May the fourth be with you recipes, games, or crafts – this list has it all. There’s something for every hour of the day and more!
And if you haven’t heard, Star Wars land, aka A Galaxy’s Edge is opening at both Disneyland and Disney World this year, not in time for May the Fourth be with you day, but pretty close!
