The Star Wars theme music starts blasting every hour and along comes a parade of Stormtroopers marching down the street. Pretty cool.
Disney Parks is celebrating Star Wars Day – May the Fourth 2019 – with special events and merchandise planned at both Disneyland and Disney World’s Hollywood Studios.
The stormtroopers are led by Captain Phasm.
The LED screens on the stage switch over to a red Star Wars First Order emblem.
Captain Phasm. Very dramatic!!! (My best photo of the stormtroopers!)
Expect to see Stormtroopers marching hourly through the streets all the day long.

Meeting Kylo Ren
He Chose the Dark Side – Will You?
The leader of the First Order, Kylo Ren is on a furious mission to rid the galaxy of the Resistance and the remnants of the Jedi Order.
Wearing stark black robes and a foreboding mask, Kylo seeks to invoke the dreaded image of his grandfather, Darth Vader. Could there be good in him still?
Kylo’s temper is volatile but there is a far greater danger—will you succumb to the allure of the dark side?

Oh Sith! This Kylo Ren Cupcake comes with a solid dark chocolate cloak!
Going over to the Dark Side now…..

Meeting Darth Vader is actually pretty scary! He’s close to 7 feet tall!
Meeting Chewy. He is sooooo tall! Even taller than Darth Vader! [May 2, 2019: RIP Chewy!]
