Hi Star Wars fans! As you know, May the 4th, also known as Star Wars Day, is just a month away and to help kick off the party, shopDisney is launching an exclusive collection only available on shopDisney.com until it hits Disney Parks on May 4, 2023.
Today, we’re sharing some early tips and tricks you need to rule the galaxy – I mean, get this new collection into your home system – whether it be Naboo, Coruscant, Jakku, or Earth.
But before we punch it into hyperspace, let’s set the vibe for this year’s collection: You’re at the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine jamming out to Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes as they play their ever-classic “Mad About Me” (if you know, you know), while listening to two creatures argue when suddenly inspiration hits – you need new gear to match the scene!
Celebrate the annual fan holiday with the Star WarsDay “May the 4th Be With You” 2023 T-Shirt for Adults, featuring an array of colorful refreshments straight from the Star Wars realm – in fact, you may recognize them from Oga’s Cantina on Batuu in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Your Padawans-in-training can also join in the celebration with this commemorative Star Wars “May the 4th Be With You” 2023 T-Shirt for Kids with some of our favorite creatures on the front. Stylish, you will be!
If you plan on pausing your journey at Mos Eisley Cantina to visit any colder planets during the May the 4th celebration (like Hoth), you’ll definitely need the Star Wars Day “May the 4th Be With You” 2023 Zip Hoodie for Adults. Greedo greets you on the front, while a message that raises intergalactic cocktail glass graces the back.
All this excitement calls for a cold glass of blue milk! Take a refreshing sip of Bantha milk with the Star Wars Day “May the 4th Be With You” Tumbler with Straw. This 37-ounce stainless steel tumbler features R2-D2, C-3PO, Jawas, Bith, and other galactic creatures.
As you wind down on your journey at Mos Eisley Cantina and the twin suns set on Tatooine, you’ll need a companion to aid you on your galactic missions back on Earth. The 2023 May the 4th MagicBand+, available for presale, will let you engage throughout Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resortas it responds to park interactions including lighting effects. And, for even more fun, look out for trading items coming in May.
While I find the lack of dark side in this collection disturbing, even a Kylo Ren aficionado like me can admit these goods are a must for any Star Wars fan. So plug in those coordinates and fly on over to shopDisney today to start prepping for the best celebration in the galaxy!

If you’re ready to start exploring a Walt Disney World or Disneyland family vacation, I recommend checking out Undercover Tourist for your ticket options. I’ve already used them twice, once at Disneyland and once at Disney World and will plan to continue comparing their prices with other sites, however I usually come back to UT because they have the best deals and their instructions make it easy to add your tickets to the Disney apps.
