I was just commenting the other day how smart I thought Walt Disney World was for using Star Wars Day, May 4th, as an opportunity to have a practice run for many of the events that would occur during their Star Wars Weekends. In the past they have done the stage show, character interactions, DJ and even the fireworks show on May 4th. Today we went to see how they were going to celebrate May the 4th Be With You in 2015 and were greeted with merchandise and marching storm troopers. Besides these few abnormalities and every Cast Member saying “May the 4th Be With You” it seemed just like any other day. There was a larger amount of Star Wars Fans dressed in their movie inspired attire but definitely not the hoopla that I saw a few years ago. I really hope that in the future Disney recognizes again that this would be a great opportunity to have a dry run of their Star Wars Weekends activities and makes May 4th special again at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Below is a video of what we found this morning!
