Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Food Guide!

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

If you’ve been keeping up with our Instagram, you already know how we feel about Galaxy’s Edge… spoiler alert: we LOVE it. While visiting the planet of Batuu, we got to taste a little (maybe a lot) of what the galaxy had to offer so we put together a list of all the food we tried while at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

DOCKING BAY 7

There was a lot to like at Docking Bay 7. We’ve eaten here for breakfast and lunch but haven’t had a chance to try the dinner menu yet so I guess we’ll just HAVE to go back! The breakfast here was delicious, the Bright Suns Morning consists of a three-cheese egg bite, pork sausage, purple potato hash and a mini mustafarian lava roll. The pork sausage gets a 10/10 from us, it was SO yummy. We enjoyed 2 out of 4 of our lunch plates. The Felucian Garden Spread and the Roasted Endorian Tip Yip Salad were in our favor, the Smoked Kaadu Ribs and Yobshrimp Noodle Salad were not. The ribs were difficult to eat and it was hard to see if there were bones in the meat (there were) and the Yobshrimp Noodle Salad left Cody hungry for churros. I know Cody’s always hungry for churros but he said the meal wasn’t great and we trust him. Our overall favorites; Moof Juice, Roasted Endorian Tip Yip Salad, Felucian Garden Spread, Bright Suns Morning, Batuu-Bon.

Breakfast:

  • Rising Moons Overnight Oats- $6.99
  • Bright Suns Morning- $10.99
  • Mustafarian Lava Roll $5.99
  • Moof Juice- $5.49
  • Phattro- $5.49

Lunch:

  • Felucian Garden Spread- $12.99
  • Yobshrimp Noodle Salad- $15.99
  • Smoked Kaadu Ribs- $16.99
  • Roasted Endorian Tip Yip Salad- $13.99

Dessert:

  • Batuu-Bon- $6.99
  • Oi-oi puff- $6.49

RONTO ROASTERS

When you have siblings, you’re expected to have some disagreements, we certainly do (Blue Milk vs. Green Milk) but something we can all agree on is that the Ronto Wrap and the Tatooine Sunset are the best things we tried in Galaxy’s Edge! The Moof Juice from Docking Bay 7 wasn’t far behind but there is just something about the Tatooine Sunset… it’s refreshing yet sweet and very delicious. The Ronto Wrap was filled with roasted pork, cole slaw and grilled pork sausage, what’s not to like??

  • Ronto Wrap- $12.99
  • Nuna Turkey Jerky (Sweet)- $7.49
  • Tatooine Sunset- $5.49

MILK STAND

Like I mentioned before, we are not in agreeance about the milks from the Milk Stand. Courtney liked the Green Milk while Cody and I preferred the Blue Milk. Something we all preferred to these milks was the Blue Bantha drink from Oga’s Cantina… but more on that later! Despite this being a milk stand, there isn’t actually any dairy in these drinks. They are both plant-based using coconut and rice milk which we think gives it that sweet taste. These were fun to try but I don’t think we’ll be having a craving for them any time soon.

  • Blue Milk- $7.99
  • Green Milk- $7.99

OGA’S CANTINA

We were lucky enough to be able to visit the cantina twice and while we thoroughly enjoyed the decor, music and drinks, it was very crowded and we felt rushed each time. Once you get into the cantina, there is a 45 min time LIMIT and a 2 drink MAXIMUM. As you can see, we tried a lot over our two visits. Our favorite drinks were the Outer Rim, Blue Bantha and the Cliff Dweller. Bonus is the Cliff Dweller comes in an adorable Porg mug and the Blue Bantha has a cookie on top!

There are two options for food during lunch and dinner. We loved Oga’s Obsession (Jello with popping pearls) but we couldn’t get on board with the Batuu Bits. While they looked the part, we thought it was a weird combination. Chocolate and fish in the same bite? No thank you!

Non-Alcoholic:

  • Cliff Dweller- $32.00
  • Blue Bantha- $13.00
  • Hyperdrive (Punch It!)- $6.00

Alcoholic:

  • Fuzzy Tauntaun- $15.00
  • Dagobah Slug Slinger- $15.00
  • Jet Juice- $14.00
  • The Outer Rim- $16.00
  • Yub Nub- $42.00
  • Jedi Mind Trick- $14.00
  • Toniray, Goldschmidt Vineyards, Sonoma- $13.00

Snacks:

  • Oga’s Obsession- $7.50
  • Batuu Bits- $8.00

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!

img_7964

Not too long ago in a galaxy far, far away…

Three siblings came together to journey to the Galaxy’s Edge on the planet of Batuu.

We still can’t get over our time in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. We had so much fun eating all the food, riding the Millennium Falcon and making a droid (Kenzie has never felt more motherly). It’s been a long time coming so we were well-versed on all the details about how to gain access to Galaxy’s Edge. One way to ensure your admission into the new land was by booking a stay at one of the 3 Disney hotels. We decided to stay at the Paradise Pier hotel as it was the most cost effective for us. After booking our room, we received our reservation for Galaxy’s Edge!…the 8am-12pm time slot on Sunday. In each of the Disney hotels, there is a Galaxy’s Edge reservation desk where you can make changes to your reservation and ask cast members any questions that you may have before entering the park. Once we got settled into our room, we headed into the park to look at all the opening day merch. This merch is located at the Star Trader shop in Tomorrowland. Courtney picked up an AP exclusive shirt from there and then we headed back to the hotel to get some shut eye… we had an early morning ahead of us!

If you had the 8am reservation, they were opening the park at 6am to allow enough time for everyone to check in and get their wristbands at the Launch Bay in Tomorrowland. Experiencing Disneyland in the wee hours of the morning is still so magical! After check in, we grabbed some breakfast at the Galactic Grill before lining up between Finding Nemo and the restaurant. Then we eagerly waited for the cast members to escort us to Batuu.img_7954

At 7:45a two rows of cast members escorted us to Galaxy’s Edge. You could feel the excitement and energy from everyone as we walked over and got our first glimpse of Galaxy’s Edge. It was a feeling like no other! Our first stop was Oga’s Cantina. There was a two drink maximum (not minimum) so we ordered a few things and shared.

After Oga’s Cantina we headed to Docking Bay 7 to have our second breakfast of the morning. We ordered the Rising Moons Overnight Oats, Bright Suns Morning,the Mustafarian Lava Roll, Moof Juice and Phattro. Everything about the Docking Bay was amazing. The food, the decor, even the silverware and plates. You really felt like you were transported to another planet.

lrg_dsc00119

Our next stop was Dok-Ondars Den of Antiquities. The store was filled with unique goods like rare crystals and jewelry, you can even buy the lightsaber of a famous Jedi…so many great finds! Kenzie was tempted and almost walked away with a Nabu head piece.

img_7564

After some shopping, we hopped in line for the Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run. We found that if you waited about 2 hours into the reservation, the wait was only about 20 mins. If we’re being honest, even if we had to wait longer we wouldn’t have minded. The queue was filled with so many great details; there was always something to look at! I don’t think it could ever get old. This ride was an UNREAL experience… pulling that lever to take us to light speed…magic! Thankfully we had Cody who was a fantastic co-pilot and Kenzie as our gunner. We passed our mission and didn’t have too much damage to the ship. The ride is VERY interactive, it was something we really loved about it. Your outcome was based on how well you did on the ride.

Post Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run…

While waiting in line for Smuggler’s Run, we mobile ordered the Blue and Green milk from the milk stand. Kenzie and Cody liked the Blue milk, while I much preferred the Green milk…more for me I guess! While we enjoyed our milk we roamed around the spire and even ran into Kylo Ren and a few stormtroopers.

 

Next up the Droid Depot! If you have a spare $25,000 you can buy your very own R2D2. If you don’t have that kinda change lying around, you can choose to build your own droid for $99! Kenzie decided that was going to be her splurge and so she created her own little droid baby. She picked all the parts at the conveyor belt, brought it to the building station and with Cody’s help her droid came to life. Welcome to the family BB Ben!

img_7861

Now it was time for Cody and I to do some shopping, so we headed over to the market. We picked up some popcorn at Kat Saka’s Kettle (which is something else we disagree on) I loved the sweet and spicy mix while everyone else wasn’t sold on it. We continued to wander through the shops and Cody got to pick out his own Jedi robe (NOTE: you’re not allowed to wear it inside Galaxy’s Edge) while I bought the cutest Chewbacca and Yoda plushies.

lrg_dsc00179After working up an appetite from all the shopping we decided to head back to Docking Bay 7 with BB Ben in tow. These droids are interactive and communicate with other droids nearby as well as react when they are in certain parts of the land. BB Ben got really talkative when we got to Docking Bay 7. It’s so much fun seeing them interact!img_8008

Sadly our time had come to an end. As we were exiting, we passed by some kiosks that were selling rebel merchandise, we even ran into Rey and Chewie! While we did a lot in these 4 hours, we felt like our time in Galaxy’s Edge was rushed. We never wanted to stay too long in one place in case we wouldn’t get the chance to do something else. A perfect example would be me scarfing down a wrap from Ronto Roasters and feeling sick almost immediately after doing so… don’t get me wrong, the wrap was DELICIOUS, it was just consumed too quickly. We had such a great time and we didn’t want it to end sooooo we made another reservation at the Disneyland hotel for this weekend!

Fall Dapper Day 2018

img_6404

With Spring Dapper Day coming up this weekend, we decided to (finally) post our first Dapper Day experience at Disneyland! We had so much fun getting all dolled up and going into the park. We made a whole weekend out of it and booked a room at the Disneyland Hotel. Since the Dapper Day expo was taking place in the hotel they were offering discounts on rooms if you purchased your expo tickets ahead of time.

lrg_dsc00799Once we checked in we went downstairs to check out the expo. We got there just in time to watch the San Andreas Sisters perform and we LOVED seeing everyone on the dance floor!

lrg_dsc00867We then roamed around the exhibit hall to look at all the vendors and found a couple of shops that we really loved. Leo found a hat shop that had so many great options he couldn’t decide on what hat to get and ended up leaving empty-handed. The pressure was too much! Kenzie, on the other hand, walked away with an adorable Mickey fascinator by Hat & Mouse.

The next day we got up bright and early to have breakfast with Minnie & her friends at the Plaza Inn.

That moment when you see your favorite character…

After breakfast, we met Cody back at the expo to get our tintype photographs done. We saw this booth set up the day before and put our names down to get a portrait done. Jason Madsen, the photographer is great and if you’re ever in the Los Angeles area, he frequents the Melrose Trading Post so you can grab your tintype photo there too!

Voila! The final product!

We headed back into the park to walk around, grab a bite to eat and take some pics of our Dapper Day attire. Kenzie had an outfit change because she said “wearing a dress is hard work”.

We had so much fun on our first dapper day. Can’t wait to do it again soon!img_6494

 

Minnie’s Valentine’s Day Surprise Scavenger Hunt

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Happiest Place on Earth! This year, Disneyland did a scavenger hunt in search of Minnie’s secret Valentine’s Day cards that she’s hidden for Mickey and all of her friends. This was such a cute little activity to do in the parks…some were harder to find than others which let Kenzie’s competitive side really show but we had a lot of fun with it!

Christmas Time at The Parks

lrg_dsc03406We LOVE visiting the parks during the holiday season, it just doesn’t feel like Christmas until we’ve been to Disneyland! Every year we watch the Christmas Fantasy Parade… we typically grab a snack (popcorn, pretzel, churro. What’s your vice?) and mosey on down Main Street to find a spot for viewing. There were a lot of new foods to try this season, so we did our best and tried as much as we could! Lots of peppermint and eggnog treats were consumed… You can see more of our Christmas at the parks below!

The gingerbread cookies in the parade are just as cute as the ones at Red Rose Tavern!

The look of love…and an eggnog mustache. We weren’t kidding when we said that we consumed a lot of eggnog treats. We tried the Holiday Frozen Eggnog from Red Rose Tavern, the Eggnog Latte Cheesecake from the Jolly Holiday Bakery and these Churro Bites with Eggnog Gelato from Hungry Bear.

Now on to one of our favorite treats from this past holiday season. We found out about these Churro Sundaes from the Golden Horseshoe during their last run for Halloween. We were sad that we didn’t have more time together SO when we found out that they were making a comeback for the holidays, we were first in line. We loved this one so much that we decided to recreate it at home! (you can see how we did that here)

The best part about this sundae is the caramel filling inside of the churros. A very sweet surprise…as expressed by Courtney below.

Cody loves going into the Penny Arcade to look at all the sweets. Also, can anyone actually eat a beignet without getting it all over the place?? We loved these Candy Cane Beignets at the Mint Julep Bar.

Kenzie is an avid affogato consumer, so when we found out that schmoozies was putting a holiday twist on their affogato she HAD to get it…even if it was cold and raining.

Some of our favorites from the Festival of Holidays this year.

  • Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce
  • Blood Orange Ginger Mule
  • Turkey & Stuffing Tamale with Cranberry Relish
  • Braised Pork Belly Adobo
  • Jalapeño Latkes with Chipotle Crema (spicy)
  • Nashville Hot Fried Turkey with Dill Pickles (So friggin spicy)

We’ll miss you Christmas!! Until next time…

Mickey’s 90th Birthday!

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

Mickey turned 90 earlier this month so we went into the parks to celebrate! For his birthday weekend only, the parks released Mickey-themed treats in celebration of the big 90. Us girls headed down to the park that Saturday morning to get a taste. We started with the celebration churro and it was DELICIOUS. Very messy but very much delicious. This churro had cookie butter drizzled on top of it so it wasn’t a hard sell.

After the churro, we walked around the park, took some photos…tried working up our appetite and then stopped by the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor to get the Mickey & Minnie Mouse Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sundae. This Sundae was like a melting pot of all your favorite birthday goodies; cupcakes, brownies, whipped cream and scoops of birthday cake ice cream. We could not and did not finish this sundae, we were in desperate need of extra help.

On Sunday we got up bright and early so we could get our Birthday pins before they ran out (which they did…around noon) and quickly found a spot for Mickey’s Birthday Cavalcade down Main Street. It was cute to see all the characters come out for Mickey’s Birthday. We loved seeing those characters that we don’t usually get to see in the parks, some of them we haven’t seen since we were kids *cough cough Jiminy Cricket*. The cavalcade stopped right in front of us and we all got to sing “Happy Birthday” to Mickey and Minnie.

Halloween at the Parks

Processed with VSCO with l7 preset

The Halloween season has officially come to an end but don’t mourn for too long… Christmas time is just around the corner (Nov 9)! Part of the fun during the “seasons” at Disneyland is seeing the parks all decked out and tasting all the goodies. We’ve listed some of our favorites from this spooky Halloween season below. Let us know which were your favorites!

Main Street: 

  • Graveyard and Mummy Donut
  • Mummy Rice Krispy
  • Dia de los Muertos Candy Apple
  • Pumpkin Spice Frosted Pretzels (Not Pictured)
  • Cauldron Popcorn Bucket

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

We had to get to the park at rope drop to get our hands on these delicious donuts. Others were rushing to the rides, we were rushing to the food…priorities!

We had to put this amazing popcorn bucket on here because 1. Disneyland popcorn is the best 2. This is one of our favorite souvenirs.

Popcorn Bucket

Frontierland:

  • Frozen Abuelita Horchata
  • Sugar Skull Pot de Creme
  • Churro Sundae

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

We were split on the Frozen Abuelita Horchata… Mom and Kenzie loved it, Cody and Courtney not so much. But something we all can agree on is the Sugar Skull Pot de Creme…DELICIOUS

Cody

We were late to the party on this one. This was so so yummy and we wish we would’ve tried it sooner… we look at it as a blessing in disguise, probably better we only tried it in it’s last run, could’ve been a dangerous addiction.Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

California Adventures:

  • Bat Wing Sundae
  • Spider Silk Macaron
  • Spicy Pepper Jack “Dog”
  • Sugar Skull Cake

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

Spicy! Spicy! Spicy! Granted, we knew what we were getting ourselves into but in doing so, it took us some time to recover. Let’s just say we did NOT ride the Incredicoaster after eating this. Delicious BUT SPICY.

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

It’s all about balance right?? There are some veggies on Cody’s plate…

THIS CAKE. Cream cheese frosting with a Churro flavored mousse filling? Yes. We devoured it. And Yes. We thought about getting another piece.

Hope you enjoyed the Halloween season in the parks as much as we did!
