Star Wars Day: May the Fourth Be With You
Star Wars fans know that May 4 is Star Wars Day! This year’s Star Wars Day may look different for many of you than it might otherwise. We love to celebrate Star Wars Day in the Disney Parks, especially with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and the Disneyland Resort in California. However, with both Disney World and Disneyland temporarily closed, we will be celebrating Star Wars Day at home. We have eight fun ideas and activities to help us celebrate Star Wars Day 2020.
Look the Part
Even if you’ll be spending the day at home, you can still wear your favorite Star Wars look! If you have a Star Wars costume, wear it! Or, just be sure to pull out your favorite Star Wars t-shirt at the least. Don’t forget to order your own Baby Yoda to remain by your side.
Watch the Star Wars films
Of course, there are the nine “episodes” comprising three Star Wars trilogies, but you can also watch other Star Wars films and series to celebrate. Rise of Skywalker will be coming to Disney+ today in addition to all eight of the preceding episodes. If you don’t have access to Disney+ or just want a physical copy, you can order Star Wars: The Complete Saga. You can also find The Clone Wars, The Mandalorian, Rogue One, and Star Wars Rebels, among others, on Disney+. Play Star Wars Bingo while watching the film for a little more interactive fun.

Make Lightsaber Pretzels
You can make your own lightsaber pretzels at home with just pretzel rods and colored candy melts! First, you’ll need to heat the candy melt color of your choice until fully melted. Once melted, you will cover approximately 3/4 of the pretzel rod with the candy melt. Once dry, you can then heat black candy melts to cover the bottom of your pretzels for the handle of your lightsaber. You can find the full instructions here.
