VaderThis may be the coolest Limited Time Magic yet!  For one day only, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will present a “Limited Time Magic” event for the annual, fan-proclaimed “Star Wars Day,” May 4 – as in “May the Fourth Be With You!”

Not to be confused with the annual month-long Star Wars Weekends special event (which begins May 17), this “Limited Time Magic” celebration will feature special Star Wars character appearances, commemorative merchandise, and entertainment including a Star Wars dance party and a Star Wars-themed fireworks show to finish off the day.  You might even find yourself sitting next to Chewbacca aboard Star Tours – The Adventures Continue, as Star Wars characters will make surprise appearances on the 3-D attraction to enjoy the wild journey through space alongside park guests!!  How cool is that!!!!

A special edition of Jedi Training Academy also is planned that day, with parents invited to join their children (ages 4-12, sign-ups required on first-come basis) on-stage for the training and final showdown with the Empire!!    Then when the sun goes down, get ready to party!  Lobot (from Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back) takes over as DJ for a dance party that will be highlighted by a special Star Wars fireworks show.

All “May the Fourth Be With You” Limited Time Magic park activities and shows are included in regular admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
