Wait, There Are How Many People in Disney World Waiting for Star Wars Merch?!

From a video of a super realistic looking lightsaber (that we’ll get to see soon!!), to updates about a restaurant guests will be able to eat at on Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser (a.k.a the Star Wars Hotel), this Star Wars Day is already proving itself to be QUITE the day!

But, turning over to the parks, today is a big Star Wars merchandise release day as well, particularly over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and let’s just say the Star Wars fans are WELL aware of it.

Today is May the FOURTH, a.k.a. Star Wars Day (as in, May the FOURTH be with you). A whole bunch of special treats will be available today (and tomorrow) as part of the celebrations, and some new merchandise is being released today too!

Disney has shared that “Star Wars Galactic Outpost at Disney Springs and select locations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are showcasing new merchandise available starting today (while supplies last), including apparel featuring the new Disney+ series “The Bad Batch” (also debuting today).”


We made our way over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios pretty early this morning to check it all out! We arrived around 9AM ET and followed the signs to the Star Wars event merchandise. But, we weren’t alone!!

Time to Get Shopping!

We scanned the QR code shown to us to join the virtual waitlist…

We’ll be checking out all of the awesome Star Wars merchandise, treats, and offerings online and in Disney World throughout the day today, so stay tuned for more news, photos, and more. And May the Force Be With You.
