Food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge
Disneyland is known for having some of the best snacks and treats around. Mickey pretzels, Dole whips, churros and turkey legs are all Disneyland vacation staples. And now, with a brand new land, there is a whole new line-up of must-have treats. The food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is unlike anything you've had before. As you can see, even the Coke is different in Batuu! The theming is incredible and the tastes are something you'll crave once you get home. We'll take you through what to expect and share what you MUST try during your visit to Batuu.
Food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Oga's Cantina
Without fail, one of the most popular spots in all of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is Oga's Cantina. There are a few reasons why it tops the popularity charts. One, the atmosphere is unmatched. It's also one of the only places in the entire land where you'll hear actual music. And, better yet, your DJ is none other than DJ-R3X, aka, DJ Rex, from Star Tours.
Two, and truly, probably the number one reason, is it is the only place in all of Disneyland where you can purchase alcohol. And these are no regular drinks. These are libations from another planet. With this, it's important to note that there is a two-drink maximum per person. Equally important to point out is that there are tons of non-alcoholic beverages that are just as whimsical and fun, should you not drink. Some of our favorites were the Blurrgfire and Hyperdrive (Punch It!).
In addition to drinks, Oga's Cantina serves a couple of breakfast items and has "Batuu Bits" available throughout the day. The Batuu Bits are Batuu's version of a typical snack mix. It's a combination of sweet, salty and savory that is unlike anything you've ever had on Earth.
Even with serving alcohol, Oga's Cantina insists on being family friendly. However, with that said, the cantina is incredibly popular and always filled to capacity. That oftentimes means standing room only, which may be hard for kids. Additionally, there is often a wait to get in.
Disney, or rather the residents of Batuu, are currently experimenting with a text-based reservation system in lieu of a physical line which was in place for the first couple of opening days. Once you get on the list, you'll be told your approximate wait time, and you'll get a text when it's time to return. You'll have a 15 minute time window to get back to Oga's and once you're checked in, you'll have a 45 minute time window to drink up.
Long story short, if you want to experience Oga's Cantina, get there early and get on the list.
Food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Milk Stand
While we're talking drinks, we may as well talk about one of the most well-known beverages from the Star Wars saga; Blue Milk. The Milk Stand is pretty straight forward. Their menu consists of only two items; Blue Milk and Green Milk.
Both are vibrantly colored plant-based drinks with identical temperatures and textures. That's where the similarities end. No one has yet to be able to pinpoint the exact flavors of the milks, but the Blue Milk has been described as "tropical," while the Green Milk has been described as "citrusy." With that said, neither has tasted like anything I've tasted before. The texture is like a mix of a Slurpee and a milkshake. It's quite refreshing, but both flavors are so strong that I would recommend sharing a single serving.
The Milk Stand has mobile ordering available and both the green and blue versions are $8, or Eight Credits as they say on Batuu, a piece.
Food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Ronto Roasters
Out of all of the food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, my favorite menu item came from Ronto Roasters. A podracer engine roasts a giant spit of meats... which are delicious AND can be ordered through your mobile phone. Here you'll find the Ronto Wrap, which was my favorite taste of Batuu. It's nothing fancy to look at, and I likely would have passed it by had I not heard good things. It's roasted pork, topped with a slightly spicy pork sausage, which is then topped with a little coleslaw and peppercorn sauce, all wrapped in a pita. It is tasty and filling. While we didn't get to try the breakfast version, we've heard it's just as good.
The Ronto Roasters also serves brightly colored specialty beverages and turkey jerky. We love the Meiloorun Juice, which was a mix of pineapple, lemon, blueberry, white cranberry and desert pear. The turkey jerky, while tasty, seemed like the least substantial of the food items available. The turkey jerky is around $7.50, but you only get a few small pieces of the dried meat and it would be hard to share.
Food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Kat Saka's Kettle
Much like the Milk Stand, Kat Saka's Kettle's menu is straight forward. It serves one type of flavored popcorn and assorted bottled drinks. Their "Outpost Popcorn Mix" features purple sweet kernels and slightly spicy red kernels, making it a blend of unique flavors that creates for an interesting snack. Additionally, you can also purchase it in a special MSE-6 Series Droid popcorn bucket if you want a souvenir.
Food at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
If you're looking for a truly out of this world dining experience, you'll want to head to the Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. This is more of a cafeteria style location that also allows mobile ordering, which is awesome. Here you'll find the most substantial meals available in Batuu with a handful of menu items that are exclusive to a specific time of day. Because there are items that are only available at breakfast, some only available at lunch, and some that are only available for dinner, you may find yourself eating all three meals at Docking Bay 7 to try them all.
While the ingredients may sound familiar, the presentation will blow you away. You've never had fried chicken, ribs or chocolate cake like this before. Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo also has one of the most diverse menu catering to vegans, vegetarians, and nearly any other dietary restriction.
