Also, tickets are now on sale for a special Disney After Hours celebration of May the 4th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  If you aren’t familiar with Disney After Hours events, they’re your opportunity to experience the magic of a Disney theme park for three hours after regular park hours, with limited attendance, which means little-to-no wait for attractions, experiences and character greetings.

On May 4, you’ll have the opportunity to encounter Chewbacca with Rey, Kylo Ren with Captain Phasma and more at the park during Disney After Hours! There will also be themed merchandise and special treats available for purchase. You can grab Disney After Hours tickets for May the 4th right now.   *Be sure your costume fits within these park guidelines.

During May the 4th, it’s also a great time to ride Star Tours – The Adventures Continue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and enjoy other Star Wars experiences, including:

Star Wars Guided Tours – The full Force of Star Wars fun happening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with this all-access tour.
