Star Wars Exclusive May the 4th Merch

Star Wars Day Disney Key

You need a strategy to get your Star Wars limited edition key. Start with these steps right now:

  1. Make sure you have an existing ShopDisney account (it’s the same login you use for the Disneyland App, Disney Plus and all other Disney accounts) and have a credit card stored for easy purchasing.
  2. Click this link now and have the page open beforehand. 
  3. Set an alarm on your phone for 6:55 am PST and label your alarm “Star Wars Key”. I find that when I set random alarms without a label, I quickly dismiss them before I remember what it’s for and by then it’s too late! 
  4. When your alarm goes off, you’ll already have the link open and ready to click “add to cart”, then buy! Don’t waste any time. Having it in your cart doesn’t mean it’s available. Quick fingers will do the trick!
