Star Wars Day falls on May 4th every and is often given the tagline “May the Fourth Be With You” (a reference to the ubiquitous “May the Force Be With You” line used often int he franchise). This year, with the event falling on a Saturday (and the subsequent “Revenge of the Fifth” the next day) Disney took the opportunity to bring a bit of Star Wars excitement ahead of the May 31st grand opening of the STAR WARS: GALAXY’S EDGE expansion that will bring a new land with new attraction, dining, and shopping experiences throughout.

Here’s a taste of what fans could experience this weekend.

Captain Phasma and the First Order

For just May 4th and 5th, Tomorrowland was occasionally under siege by Captain Phasma and the First Order. This experience only took place on May 4th and May 5th.

Food and Drink

Temporary intergalactic fare has landed at the Galactic Grill in Tomorrowland. We ate some of the delectable Bulgogi Beef LOADED FLEET FRIES, definitely a must-try! There’s also a Dark Side Chicken Sandwich (with fried chicken breast, coleslaw, and Asian sweet chili sauce served with your choice of Greek yogurt or fries) and at Alien Pizza Planet there’s Outer Rim Pasta (with sausage, peppers, creamy tomato sauce, and tomato relish served with the chef’s choice of pasta). Captain Phasma and Darth Vader steins are also available for purchase.

This menu is around for a limited time.

Less robust than other photo-ops we’ve seen you could get your ‘gram worthy shots in the former Starcade.
