Attractions: May the 4th Be With You
May 4th, known to sci-fi fans as Star Wars Day, has become increasingly popular within the fandom.
Here in Orlando, with such proximity to all things Star Wars, May 4th has become a celebration in the local community, as fans have found ways to bring galactic gaiety to The City Beautiful. This year, there’s plenty to do —from luxury experiences at Walt Disney World Resort to pop-ups at local businesses — so every Jedi, Rebel, and Sith Lord can join in the fun.
Caffeinate the Galaxy
Axum Coffee in Winter Garden has been creating Star Wars-inspired caffeinated drinks on May 4th in honor of Star Wars Day since 2020. At this coffee shop located on Plant Street, enjoy themed drinks, epic photo opportunities, and the chance to meet beloved characters.
In years past, their featured drinks have included The Leia, a latte served with two mini cinnamon buns served on either side of the cup to mimic the character’s iconic hairstyle, and The Boba Fett, a brown sugar boba cold brew latte in collaboration with Winter Garden’s Love at First Sip.
Join the Resistance
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there’s always tons to do with the Star Wars franchise. Still, there is something special about visiting the park on this day when people come together to celebrate the beloved characters and stories of the Star Wars universe.
