Disney’s newest attraction, “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,” will be an unforgettable immersive experience into a 14-acre intergalactic world, complete with plenty of vegan food. Guests will be able to interact with characters from the famed movie series, create their own lightsabers, explore a replica of the Millennium Falcon, role-play as First Order or the Resistance military recruits, visit multiple fictitious planets, purchase R2 droids, and dine at Docking Bay 7. Diners will be able to try many plant-based dishes at the restaurant, including dairy-free mashed potatoes and Felucian Garden Spread—a meal with kefta-style Impossible meat-based vegan meatballs, tomato and cucumber salad, hummus, and pita bread. At OGA’s cantina—the first place where alcohol is served on-premises at Disneyland—guests can imbibe on a variety of beverages. Milk Stand operators in various places around the land will offer a plant-based version of the iconic “blue milk” beverage and a tropical “green milk” drink, both served frozen. “You will not think you’re in a theme park,” Bob Chapek, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts chairman, told The Associated Press. “Every cast member will be in character, the food and beverage and language will be in story. The merchandise inside the shops won’t be in boxes that say Disney on them. Everything is very, very immersive.” The attraction also includes a phone app that creates an additional layer to the experience that assigns users tasks and goals to unlock more adventure within the park. “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” will debut at Disneyland in California this summer followed by a launch at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, FL in the fall.
