It’s that time of the year again! Even though “Star Wars” is beginning to feel like a year-round celebration these days, May the 4th is the fan-created and now officially-sanctioned Star Wars Day. And there are no two better places to celebrate it than Disneyland and the Lego Store!
The Disney Parks Blog announced today that Walt’s original park will celebrate Star Wars Day in grand fashion: by hosting a slew of special events, including a “Star Wars Rebels” episode screening in the Tomorrowland Theater and a fan celebration with “Star Wars” trivia throughout the evening at the Galactic Grill.
And don’t forget the exclusive merchandise that will be offered during the event:
Jedi and Sith alike can find special commemorative merchandise and all-new Star Wars collector glasses. And be sure to capture your memories from the day at a unique, themed photo location.
Of course, Disneyland is still home to Season of the Force (or as it’s being called in current marketing “Star Wars Awakens”) where you can ride Hyperspace Mountain, enjoy the recently-updated Star Tours: the Adventures Continue, and visit Star Wars Launch Bay to get a look at a wide array of neat costumes and props from the movies.
Over at the Lego Store you can mark Star Wars Day by participating in the following giveaways and activities as listed on Lego’s official website:

However you decide to spend Star Wars Day this year, May the 4th Be with You!
