{outfit & mini guide} Star Wars Day at Disney World's Hollywood Studios

Happy Monday!! I'm back and settled in from my trip to Florida for a friend's birthday! This time along with my outfit posts I'm going to be doing small reviews on what I did. This way it acts as a bit of a diary and travel guide for people thinking of doing a Disney vacation!

For Star Wars day (May the 4th) I wore a tee I scored in the men's section for $4 along with an R2D2 necklace from my Star Wars photoshoot from Kohl's.  To keep it fully Disney themed I wore my Coach Mickey Ears purse the whole trip. A nice subtle, cute way to show my Disney love.

Star Wars Day at Hollywood Studios was pretty fun! They had a bunch of merchandise that was available for only that day. I restrained myself and just bought the Millennium Falcon pin.  There were also a few extra Star Wars themed shows throughout the day to celebrate.

Star Wars Blueprint Tee: Kohls, Shorts: Rag & Bone c/o Marshalls, Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Alethea' (bought in Greece), Necklace: R2D2 Pendant c/o Kohl's, Bag: Disney x Coach 'Patricia' with Mickey ears, Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika', Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon)

 

Meeting Characters

 

Star Wars Launch Bay

One of the fun things we did to celebrate Star Wars Day at Hollywood Studios was to visit all three characters at Star Wars Launch Bay. We caught up with BB-8, Kylo Ren and everyone's favorite wookie, Chewbacca.

BB-8 thought I was on the dark side because of my shirt, but we assured him I was merely a spy for the rebels. Kylo tried to turn my friend and I to the dark side with his charm, but we resisted. Chewy was charming as ever and gave us big bear hugs.

The lines weren't as horrible as we were expecting and, since it was hot outside, it was a great way to escape the heat for a couple hours.


Mickey and Minnie Starring in Red Carpet Dreams

We went back to Hollywood Studios on our last full day and decided to wait for photos with Sorcerer Mickey, my favorite!! You also get a photo with Minnie since she is part of the same line, but I'm not a Minnie fan (shame on me, I know.) Mickey was spellbound (HAH!) by our Mickey jewelry (we both have rings and earrings featuring Mickey.)



Food


Backlot Express

I always make a stop at the Backlot Express at Hollywood Studios for their Dark Side Chicken and Waffles. You get a few chicken nuggets and a darth vader waffle. I buy the kids size to save a few bucks, plus it's still plenty of food! My friend and I also decided to try out the Kylo Ren dark chocolate cupcake with peanut butter buttercream. It was pretty tasty!


Fairfax Fare

Normally when I go to Hollywood Studios it's just for half a day so I don't usually stray from my chicken and waffles. Since we were visiting all day on May 4th we tried somewhere new for dinner. Sadly their kid's menu lacked anything I liked so I had to fork over $12 for this meal rather than my usual $8. I got the 7-Layer Rice Bowl with Grilled Chicken. It's grilled chicken served over cilantro rice, black beans, fire-roasted corn medley, pico de gallo and sour cream topped with cheddar. I skipped out on the sour cream and cheddar and it was delicious!

Also, for the month of May, several different quick service restaurants (Fairfax Fare included) have special Solo themed cupcakes to celebrate the film coming out on May 25th. This cupcake comes complete with delicious candy rocks on top of a chocolate cupcake with cookies & cream frosting. MMMM! They're not on the menu so be sure to ask about it! We had to go to a couple places to find any still in stock.

Entertainment & Shows

 

March of the First Order

The First Order takes on new recruits a few times a day in this fun parade-like show. We happened to catch this twice at just the right time for 2 great views of Captain Phasma training Storm Troopers.

Disney Movie Magic

This is a projection show that is shown on the Chinese Theater at Hollywood Studios. It is a tribute to the lasting legacy of Disney films and shows all the way from Snow White & The Seven Dwarves to Indiana Jones all the way to their newest films. I love this because it includes short clips from some of my favorite lesser known films, like Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular

This Star Wars themed fireworks show is so much fun. The final show of the evening, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, is one of my favorites. It brings you all the characters from the films and highlights some of the best scenes in the franchise all ending in a spectacular burst of fireworks.

There is much more to do at Disney World's Hollywood Studios but this is basically a Star Wars highlight. Toy Story Land opens this June and I can't wait to see it later this year on my next trip! We also have Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening in 2019. Some other quick highlights I always like to hit at Hollywood Studios:
  • Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
  • Toy Story Mania
  • Star Tours
