My May the 4th Experience at Hollywood Studios!

My May the 4th Experience at Hollywood Studios! The DIS Featured may the 4th

May the 4th is one of my favorite holidays, and I love to celebrate it at Hollywood Studios. The energy in the park on this day feels so positive, and everyone looks so happy. I see some of the best Star Wars outfits ever on this day. For my May the 4th journey, I tried a Star Wars themed snack and took a handful of fun PhotoPass pictures.

I got my snack at Backlot Express using mobile ordering within the My Disney Experience app. The treat I got was the Dark Side Chocolate Creation because that snack looked the prettiest; I also love chocolate, so I couldn’t resist. This treat cost $5.99, and it was pretty small in size, so I was worried it wasn’t worth it. After eating the snack, I knew it was worth it. This dessert wasn’t heavy in the chocolate department, and I believe that’s because of the Raspberry Mousse filling. The full description of the treat on the My Disney Experience app states it’s made with a malted milk chocolate mousse dome with raspberry mousse, topped with almonds and a chocolate shortbread cookie base. I love the cookie base and the almonds because they added a nice crunch to the treat, changing the texture.

After enjoying my sweet treat, I went on the hunt for the fun PhotoPass opportunities. Each PhotoPass Cast Member I encountered was friendly, and they had a blast with everyone celebrating May the 4th. Most of the time, a PhotoPass photographer will take two, maybe three photos and be done, but today that was not the case. I felt like they were giving me a full-blown photoshoot at each location. I saw a PhotoPass photographer around each corner throughout Galaxy’s Edge, so there were plenty of picture opportunities for those celebrating May the 4th.

Overall, I had an enjoyable time because I got to try a fun-themed snack that was delicious, and I got to take many pictures throughout Galaxy’s Edge. I recommend planning a vacation during this time, especially if you are a Star Wars fan.
