What's happening for Star Wars' May the 4th at Disney?

April 30, 2019, 5:37 PM · The Disney theme parks are celebrating Star Wars Day - May the Fourth - will special events at Disneyland and Walt Disney World's Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Those are the parks where Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will debut later this year: on May 31 at Disneyland and August 29 at Walt Disney World. Reservations for the Disneyland installation open on Disneyland's website at 10am Pacific Time on May 2, but whether you are celebrating getting to be among the first to visit the new Star Wars land or commiserating that The Force was not with you, Disneyland will be taking care of its Star Wars fans on the Fourth.

The big attraction will be the return of Hyperspace Mountain, which will run "for a limited time" — starting on May 4 and continuing until who knows when. This Star Wars-themed overlay of the park's Space Mountain indoor roller coaster first played during the Season of the Force event a couple years back.

Disneyland also will be welcoming Captain Phasma and a legion of Stormtroopers for a March of the First Order through Tomorrowland that day. Fans also will be invited into Starcade for Star Wars-themed photo opps, and Galactic Grill and Alien Pizza Planet will be serving Star Wars-themed selections, such as Dark Side Chicken Sandwich and Outer Rim Pasta.

At Walt Disney World in Florida, Disney's Hollywood Studios will be hosting a Star Wars-themed Disney After Hours hard-ticket event. This one costs $125 per person in advance and $129 on the day of the event and includes after-hours, low- or no-wait access to select attractions in the park, meet and greets with Star Wars characters, and themed food and merchandise for sale.

Don't reservations for Disneyland's Star Wars land open at 10 *am* on May 2, not 10 pm?

No Hyperspace Mountain at Disney World, right? :(
