Disneyland's 'Star Wars' park launches new menu of treats

Disneyland's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opened on Friday, May 31 and along with the new Millennium Falcon ride and Jedi merchandise, the park has debuted a new selection of out of this world treats.

Most importantly, there will be blue milk. The pastel-hued beverage was first introduced to the "Star Wars" franchise in 1977's "A New Hope" by the female Banthas, but made famous by Luke Skywalker.

And according to Delish, it's ridiculously good. One writer wrote, "It’s a frosty, plant-based drink with a coconut and rice milk base and tropical flavor. I drank my first cup so quickly I burped in Shyriiwook, knowing immediately that the rest of the food at Galaxy’s Edge would not disappoint."

You can find blue milk (as well as a green milk variety) at the Milk Stand, one of five places to grab food. Around the park, you'll find a lounge, a fast-casual counter service restaurant and three snack and beverage stands. 

If you're heading to Stars Wars: Galaxy's Edge for an early start, try the Rising Moons Overnight Oats topped with seasonal fruit, dragon fruit and yogurt sold at Ronto Roasters, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo and Oga’s Cantina. Also at the last two restaurants mentioned, you'll find a Mustafarian Roll, which is a sweet bread roll topped with raspberry fondant, lemon and cookies and cream cookie crumbles.

Ronto Morning Wrap 

Found at Ronto Roasters, this wrap is a great kickstart to the morning. "This savory snack comes with scrambled eggs, grilled pork sausage, shredded cheese, and peppercorn sauce wrapped in pita," according to Disney Parks Blog


For lunch or dinner, check out the Smoked Kaadu Ribs and the Yobshrimp Noodle Salad at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. And come snack time, feast on sweet and savory popcorn at Kat Saka's Kettle

Most notably, adults and children can stop by Oga's Cantina, a local watering hole in the Black Spire Outpost. This is the first location in Disneyland to serve alcohol outside of Club 33. According to Disney Food Blog, drinks called a Fuzzy Tauntaun or a Blue Bantha are served while beats are played by DJ R-3X. 

Guests can download the Disneyland app to view all the restaurants available and place mobile orders in advance. You can also watch Culinary Director Brian Piasecki walk through top menu items in the video above.

Although Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is now open to the public at Disneyland Park, the park is currently asking that guests make a reservation to visit the land through June 23. Reservations allow guests to visit the land in 4-hour increments (mobile orders must be made within a guest's designated time frame).

Starting June 24, however, it will be fully open to all Disney visitors. For a full guide on food and merchandise, you can find a brochure on Disney's website here and plan your trip today!

A second Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is set to open at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando on August 29.

The new outdoor dance parade features a new song called "It's a Good Time," and classic cast members like Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Chip 'n Dale and more. 

Choreographer Cindy Wilson told the Disney Parks Blog, “The ‘Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It!’ Street Party is a throwback to the Mickey Mouse Club, with wonderful music that everybody’s going to want to get up and dance to, and it’s contemporary at the same time. I think when [the characters] all come off the floats, guests are going to want to just jump in.”

Check the entertainment schedule for run times.

Open: January 2019

Disney is celebrating the 25th anniversary of "The Lion King" with a Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party hosted by Timon and Rafiki on Discovery Island in the Animal Kingdom.

The park features a party for Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible and Frozone to honor their victories and a meet-and-greet with Edna Mode and her best creations. In addition, guests can look throughout Pixar Place for clues on where to find the youngest member of the Incredible family, Jack-Jack.

Wonderful World of Animation

Opening: May 1, 2019

The Wonderful World of Animation is a new projection light show that will take place at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The show will take guests on a journey through more than 90 years of Disney and Pixar animations with favorites including "The Incredibles," "Coco," "Sleeping Beauty" and more. 

Space 220

Opening: 2019

Epcot is opening a new space-themed restaurant called Space 220. According to Disney Food Blog, the restaurant will showcase simulate space views while guests sit in a restaurant modeled after a space station. It will seat more than 350 guests, those of which will be "transported" to the restaurant by elevators covered in digital screens that will mock a trip to space.

A job posting seeking staff for the restaurant lists April 2019 as when applicants can join the cast, so we can assume this restaurant will be open by summer. 

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Opening: Fall 2019

Both Disney World and Disneyland will be opening a Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The park is being made to look like the planet of Batuu, which is a remote outpost that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes and is now a safe haven for those avoiding the First Order. 

There will be two main attractions where guests can fly the Millennium Falcon and another that puts guests in a Star Destroyer in a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

Other fun additions will include Luke Skywalker's blue milk, a marketplace and toys, apparel and characters like BB-8 and Chewbacca.
