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.

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!

Til the Spires!

New Brunch Menu at the Lamplight Lounge!

Lamplight Lounge Brunch

When we got wind that the Lamplight Lounge was going to start serving brunch (thanks DFB) we made a reservation ASAP. We shared our first experience at the Lamplight Lounge back in April and we really enjoyed it but this brunch…GAME CHANGER. I’m not sure if we’re just more of a breakfast family but all of us agree that we prefer the brunch menu… I mean look at all the deliciousness we consumed!!

What we ordered: Cinnamon Toast Cocktail, Sunrise Spectacular, Lamplight Chilaquiles, Indulgent French Toast, Brunch Burger.

*Brunch is only available on the weekends. You can book your reservation here or on the Disneyland App*

Pop-Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration

lrg_dsc09805

This past Sunday us girls went to see Pop-Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration at Downtown Disney. Our reservation was for 10:30am so we decided to have breakfast at the Tangaroa Terrace at the Disneyland Hotel. We love this quick-service restaurant… EVERYTHING on the menu is delicious. We promise.

We headed over to Downtown Disney 15 min before our reservation as we heard the lobby was just as incredible as the rest of the place. Wall to wall details! One wall was designed for the Beats by Dre and Disney collaboration. We were able to listen to the Pop-Up Disney! album using the Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones. These headphones are GOOOOOD…a little TOO good. We couldn’t hear the cast members calling our reservation until someone came to get us…

Once they gathered all of us for the 10:30am reservation, they went over some guidelines and showed us up the staircase for some magic.

It’s so hard to choose which room is your favorite but for Mom, she really liked the Steamboat Willie inspired room. Something that we found really sweet was the fact that they put a bunch of hidden Minnies throughout each room. We tried our best to find all of them!

We were most excited to see the next room. We had to get a picture of Kenzie’s pandora charm of Sorcerer Mickey’s hat.

This next room was Kenzie’s favorite which is not surprising, it very much is a Kenzie vibe.

Food & Wine Festival 2019

img_4459

Today is the last day to enjoy all the deliciousness at the Food & Wine Festival in DCA. We bought the Sip and Savor Pass ($49 with AP discount) which we love doing for all of the food events that take place at DCA. We were able to mosey along to each vendor, try what we wanted and come back at a later date to try some more! We really enjoy trying all the different foods – we’ve posted some of our favorites below!

0694bc35-bf92-4650-9550-775edb4ce85a

It was a bit chilly when we first went to try some food so we decided to stop and get the Fiscalini White Cheddar Lager Soup from the Nuts About Cheese booth. The soup was served in a mini Boudin sourdough bowl so you could eat every last bite of this delicious dish.

Close by was the California Craft Brews booth where Cody got the Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Columbia Street, Amber Lager and Courtney got the Pepperoni Pizza Egg Rolls. I’ll say this now, us three siblings all have very different tastes in what we like and what we agree on. These egg rolls are something we will never agree on. I won’t name names but some thought it was amazing and others thought that that person was CRAZY.

Another glimpse into our disagreements of tastes… Kenzie was not sold on the Esquites Sweet Corn Nuggets but Courtney loved them so much she had them twice! Also, Cody loves Churros (not part of the Food & Wine Festival but worth noting).

Like I mentioned before, we love taking advantage of our Sip & Savor Pass. We went back to DCA on another weekend to eat more food!

These next few vendors had some of our favorite dishes from the festival.

  • The Spice Roasted chicken on Pita with Avocado Hummus and Garlic Sauce
  • Artichoke Toast with California Olive Tapenade
  • Deconstructed Teriyaki Chicken Musubi with Pineapple Relish

Some honorable mentions:

  • Asian-Style Beef Barbacoa Taco with Pickled Ginger
  • Chocolate Crunch Cake
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Churro

Posting this made us hungry…Until next year Food & Wine Festival!!

Lamplight Lounge

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

We did it! We finally ate at the Lamplight Lounge on Pixar Pier. When this place first opened this past summer, the queues were INSANE. We tried a couple of times to put our name down as walk-ins but our hunger would always get the best of us. We may be late to the party with this one but it was only a matter of time that we book a reservation (a month in advance) for dinner.

The drink menu is colossal. We ordered two rounds because there were so many options! We tried boozy & non-boozy drinks and spoiler alert- they were all good.

What we ordered: 2319, Mint to Be, Infinity Fizz, Celctic Cure, Six Tentacles

There is an upstairs and downstairs for dining. The upstairs menu offers drinks and shared bites while the downstairs menu offers drinks, big bites and desserts. We made a reservation for downstairs.

Cody ordered the cheddar burger and we like to tease him over how particular he is about how he eats his food. He doesn’t like his food touching and he always eats his sides first and then the main part of the dish, is anyone else like this?

SO many Disney bloggers/influencers were raving about these lobster nachos so of course, we wanted to try them. Honestly, we were left scratching our heads…we all took a bite and then didn’t touch them for the rest of our meal (lives). Our sweet waitress noticed the full plate of nachos pushed aside and decided to take it off of our bill. In good conscious, we CANNOT recommend the lobster nachos but we CAN recommend the ratatouille! It was sooooo good. I could’ve added a few more “o” in so but I think you get it…it was good.

We ended our meal with these babies. We give it and the sauces that go with it a 10/10!

Lunar New Year at DCA

Lunar New Year

It’s the Year of the Pig and we celebrated with all the Lunar New Year food at DCA. We decided to head to the park on a day that had a 50% chance of rain…which in hindsight wasn’t the best idea but that didn’t stop us from enjoying all the yummy food. Because of the bad weather, most of the performances were canceled so we weren’t able to see Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession… I guess there is always next year!?

We purchased the Sip & Savor Pass ($39.00 before AP discount-$36.00 after AP discount) so we could try an assortment of goodies from all the different vendors. We still had some left over on our pass so we went back for seconds of our favorite foods.

Sip & Savor Pass

Kenzie LOVED the Vegetable Egg Roll and Chilled Sesame-Garlic Noodles from Longevity Noodle Co. Courtney’s favorite was the Mandarin Orange-Green Tea Tart from the Lucky 8 Lantern. Also, what should be noted but is not pictured, the Vietnamese Iced Coffee from the Lucky 8 Lantern… SO delicious.

Mandarin Orange-Green Tea Tart

There was just so much good food! We spent the rest of the day trying to walk off everything we ate, but we ate A LOT.
