Wondering what Galaxy’s Edge food and drinks can’t be missed? From blue milk to Batuu-bons, these are some of our favorites!
Thanks so much to Disney for providing tickets and accommodations so I could experience Rise Of The Resistance. All opinions are 100% my own.
One of the things that I love most about Disney is that when they do something, they go all-in! It’s the attention to detail that makes everything such a magical experience and this is especially true for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Galaxy’s Edge is a completely immersive experience and as you walk through the land, you really feel like you’ve been transported to a galaxy far, far away! From the buildings and structures to the always in character cast members, Disney knows it’s all about the experience and nobody does it better!
Galaxy’s Edge Food
This goes for the Galaxy’s Edge food too. If you’re looking for a Mickey pretzel or Dole Whip, you won’t find it here. Disney’s imagineers have gone above and beyond to create out-of-the-box food and drinks that can only be found in Batuu. From the farm to table inspired menu at Black Spire Outpost to the bubbling drinks at Oga’s Cantina, half the fun is in eating and drinking your way through the land.
I recently had the chance to meet Disney’s Chef Chappy and he filled me in on the many different menu options available in Galaxy’s Edge. Even better, I got to sample them many of them and have now added a few more Disney food favorites to my constantly growing list!
If you find yourself getting hungry as you wait to be called to ride Rise Of The Resistance, here are your options…
Docking Bay 7
This hangar turned mobile kitchen is a counter service restaurant where you’ll find all sorts of Star Wars inspired food. If you hit the park early, you’ll want to check out the breakfast menu where choices include the Bright Suns Breakfast Platter or Tugg’s Overnight Oats.
If you really want to treat yourself, try the Mustafarian Cinnamon Roll. My mouth was watering just looking at this and I can’t wait to try it next time I’m there. I’m still not sure if it’s more a breakfast or dessert but calories don’t count when you’re on vacation, right?
Entrees at Docking Bay 7 include the vegetarian Felucain Kefta And Hummus Garden Spread (my favorite), Surabat Shrimp & Noodle Salad, Batuuan Beef Pot Roast and Kaadu Pork Ribs.
For dessert, I absolutely loved the Batuu-bon! It’s a delicious combination of chocolate cake, white chocolate mousse and coffee custard that’s almost too pretty to eat. I didn’t let that stop me though.
One of the best things about Docking Bay 7 is that they have something for everyone, including those who have special dietary needs. In addition to vegetarian options, the menu offers entrees that are free of gluten, eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts and more.
This restaurant, named after the oversized Tatooine animals, is pretty easy to find. Just look for the smelter droid cooking over a podracing engine turned BBQ pit.
If you’re starting with breakfast, try the Ronto Morning Wrap with eggs, sausage, cheddar and peppercorn sauce. Another yummy looking option is the Rising Moons Overnight Oats with dragon fruit, seasonal fruit and yogurt.
For lunch and dinner, the Ronto Wrap with pork, sausage and tangy slaw is one of the more popular choices. There’s also an Endorian Chicken Wrap, Turkey Jerky and more.
You can’t possibly go to Galaxy’s Edge without stopping for a drink at Oga’s Cantina! It’s one of the most popular hotspots in Batuu and if you can snag a reservation, do it! Even if you don’t score one, you’ll want to hop in line. I felt like it moved quickly and once you’re inside, you’ll agree that it’s totally worth waiting for.
Like I mentioned before, Disney’s attention to detail is amazing and everything looks like it’s straight from a Star Wars movie. If my husband were to ever build a man cave, I’d want it to look like this!
Oga’s Cantina reminded me of the bar in A New Hope and this one comes complete with DJ R-3X playing music from the DJ booth.
Since it’s Disney, it’s a family friendly bar with plenty of non-alcoholic drinks on the menu. However, it was after 5pm and I was kid free so I went straight for the cocktails!
My favorite was the Bespin Fizz, a delicious combination of Bacardí Superior Rum, Yuzu Purée, Pomegranate Juice, White Cranberry Juice, and a Cloud Swirl. Half the fun was in the presentation and it bubbled and fizzed just like a space age drink should!
Oga’s Cantina was so much fun and I loved the lively atmosphere! There’s a 45 minute time limit and a two drink maximum in order to keep the line moving. With so many other things to do though, that was plenty of time to enjoy it. It was a nice little pit stop before making our way back to ride Smuggler’s Run…again!
The Milk Stand
Along with Oga’s Cantina, hitting up the Milk Stand was another big thing on my to-do list. I’d seen plenty of debate online about whether the blue milk or the green milk was better. I needed to find out for myself!
The first thing you should know is that neither one actually tastes like milk. In fact, they aren’t made with regular milk at all. These smoothie-like drinks are dairy free and made with a combination of rice milk and coconut milk.
Which one you like best will totally depend on your taste. The blue milk is made with ingredients like pineapple, lime, watermelon and dragon fruit. The green milk has more of a citrus makeup, with passion fruit, grapefruit, mandarin orange and the taste of orange blossoms.
For me, there was a clear cut winner…I’m team blue all the way! The green didn’t appeal to me at all but the blue tasted like a fruit smoothie, which I loved.
While the regular drinks are available for $7.99, you can also purchase alcoholic versions for $14. You’ll get Bacardi rum in the blue milk and Corazon Blanco Tequila in the green milk. Look for the Milk Stand across from the TIE Echelon in Docking Bay 9.
Kat Saka’s Kettle
One of my favorite souvenirs from Galaxy’s Edge wasn’t actually from a gift shop. Nope, I had to have one of the cool Coke bottles from Kat Saka’s Kettle!
You won’t find Coke bottles like this anywhere except for Galaxy’s Edge. Plus, you get the added bonus of quenching your thirst and picking up a souvenir at the same time.
If you’ve got the munchies, you can grab a bag of the Outpost Mix. This popcorn, made with both sweet and spicy flavors is kind of an odd combination of ingredients. Some pieces tasted fruity while others had more of a red chili flavor. Reviews have been mixed but I love all things popcorn so I enjoyed it.
There’s no shortage of Galaxy’s Edge food to try, whether you just want a small snack or looking to feed the family for dinner. Even better, because the food and drinks have been designed with Batuu in mind, eating here totally adds to the experience.
What will you be tasting first?
