For foodies, one of the very best things about a new land opening in a Disney park is all the new food that comes along with it. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is particularly exciting, as there are tons of new snack, meal, and beverage options. Not only that, but they are all quite interesting, and many of them cater to the Star Wars fan just perfectly. If you’re a food person, we recommend heading into this new land with an empty stomach and a thirst for new tastes. You might also want to ensure your wallet is quite full, considering the prices many of these treats boast. Wondering which foods and drinks to pick during your first time in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge? Below is your guide to the tastes of the land.
1. Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Let’s begin with the only full-fledged restaurant in the land. Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is a quick-service eatery, but features food options and theming you might expect to see at a table-service place. It reminds us very much of Satu’li Canteen at Pandora in many respects, and is easily one of the best quick-service restaurants on property. Here’s what you should order when visiting this fabulous eatery:
- Smoked Kaadu Ribs – Sticky Pork Ribs, Blueberry Corn Muffin, Cabbage Slaw: These are, without a doubt, the best thing on the menu at Docking Bay 7. They are moist and tender as ribs should be, and the seasoning is just perfect. We also love the light breading on top of the ribs, which provides great additional texture. Oddly, the blueberry corn muffin is equally as delicious as the ribs and, along with the slaw, really rounds out the meal.
- Braised Shaak Roast – Beef Pot Roast, Cavatelli Pasta, Wilted Kale, Mushrooms: More of a pot roast fan? In our opinion, the second best thing offered here is the Braised Shaak Roast. The wonderfully moist and flavorful beef roast is plentiful and is served atop pasta along with kale and mushrooms, making this a very complex and filling dish. In fact, we’d even go so far as to say the meal might be shareable. This is definitely a winner for anyone looking for some good comfort food while in Hollywood Studios.
- Oi-Oi Puff and Batuu-bon: Described as a raspberry crème puff with passion fruit mousse, the Oi-Oi Puff is a wonderfully light and fruity dessert that is perfect after a heavy meal or on a hot day. Meanwhile, the chocolate cake + white-chocolate mousse + coffee custard treat known as the Batuu-bon is sinfully dense and rich—perfect for a chocolate lover or someone in search of something absolutely decadent. Both are worth trying, so if you’re torn, just order both!

2. Milk Stand
The Milk Stand is a small drink kiosk with an impressive amount of theming. The large vats that appear to be full of Blue Milk and Green Milk are seriously convincing, adding a super fun look to the small cart. Wondering which color milk you should choose? We recommend:
- Blue Milk – Coconut and Rice Milks with flavors of Dragon Fruit, Pineapple, Lime, and Watermelon: For starters, Blue Milk is one of those drinks we see featured in the Star Wars films. Therefore, most serious Star Wars fans are going to want to give this one a try. However, it should be noted that the Blue Milk is actually the better drink in our opinion. While the consistency is a bit odd and not at all what you’d expect from a beverage with milk in the name, the slushy-like texture is nice on a warm Florida day. As far as taste goes, you can expect a lot of sweetness from this drink. In fact, many find the beverage to be too sweet, saying it is very much like drinking a fruity candy. Still, we think it’s something that absolutely must be tried so everyone can decide for themselves how they feel about the iconic beverage.
3. Ronto Roasters
Those looking for real food without the hassle of going all the way into Docking Bay 7 should head into Ronto Roasters. While the selection at this counter-service spot is quite limited, what they do have to offer is tasty—and since they have breakfast in addition to lunch and dinner, this is a place you can visit any time of day. Here’s what you should choose:
- Ronto Wrap – Roasted Pork, Grilled Pork Sausage, Peppercorn Sauce, Tangy Slaw, wrapped in Pita: This tasty wrap is the perfect grab-and-go food. It gives you a lovely combination of flavors and textures while remaining convenient to eat as you walk. The sausage and pork are fabulous, and the peppercorn sauce works perfectly to add a nice, peppery flavor. The slaw adds texture and a nice vinegar punch, while the pita holds everything nicely together.
- Ronto Morning Wrap – Scrambled Eggs, Grilled Pork Sausage, Shredded Cheddar, Peppercorn Sauce, wrapped in Pita: Prefer to see the area in the morning? While the Ronto Wrap above is available all day, those who will be dining before 10am might opt for the breakfast version of the wrap. This version uses the same sausage, but adds scrambled eggs in place of the pork and slaw. The result is a slightly lighter wrap with a softer texture and no vinegar flavor. It’s a wonderful way to start the day, and depending on your food preferences, you may even find you prefer it over the other wrap option.
4. Kat Saka’s Kettle
Want a super fun snack? Kat Saka’s Kettle is a great place to go for a yummy treat that the whole family can share and enjoy together. Again, you will be greeted with a limited menu (even more limited this time, in fact). However, what they do have is quite tasty. What do they have?
- Outpost Popcorn Mix: A colorful blend of sweet and spicy flavors: This fun popcorn treat features “grains from across the galaxy,” including sweet, fruity purple grains and spicy red grains. These blend quite nicely, making for a super interesting snack. The spicy grains aren’t too spicy and are easily balanced out by the fruity grains, so don’t be afraid to let the kids try this one too!
5. Oga’s Cantina
Last but not least, there is Oga’s Cantina. This is the only eatery in the land which requires an advance dining reservation, and oddly enough, it isn’t even a full restaurant. Instead, it’s an incredibly well themed bar which offers a variety of fruity alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as several beers. Kids are allowed in the Cantina, so don’t hesitate to make a reservation for your family if this is something you’d like to see. All in all, the drinks offered here are pretty typical Disney fruity drinks. However, there are two options that stand out from the rest:
- The Fuzzy Tauntaun – Cîroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, and Simply Orange topped with tangerine, pure cane sugar, and Buzzz Foam: A sweet-but-not-too-sweet drink with a nice, citrus tang, the Fuzzy Tauntaun is quite tasty and a nice break from the many overly sweet cocktails offered in the cantina. However, what really makes this drink stand out is the Buzzz Foam. What is Buzzz Foam, you ask? It’s a bizarre foamy topping that contains a numbing agent. The result is a tingly—or even completely numb—mouthfeel, a strangely addicting sensation we thoroughly enjoyed.
- Blue Bantha: Blue Milk served chilled with Bantha-inspired vanilla-butter sugar cookie: Looking for a good non-alcoholic drink? Try the Blue Bantha. Yes, this is the same Blue Milk found at the Milk Stand. However, we found that the presentation and consistency were actually more appealing in Oga’s Cantina. Additionally, this version is served with an amazing, thick cookie that we absolutely adore.
