Here it is! Your comprehensive guide to EVERY vegan option in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.
There’s been a lot of hype surrounding both Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s newest attraction area Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Both Walt Disney World and Disneyland have officially opened Black Spire Outpost to the public, which poses this question…
What’s Vegan at Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?
First let’s break down the food and beverage locations coming to this new land. We’ve got Ronto Roasters, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, Oga’s Cantina, the Milk Stand and Kat Saka’s Kettle.
Vegan in Galaxy’s Edge – Ronto Roasters
The least vegan friendly is Ronto Roasters. If you don’t consider yourself a Star Wars nerd, Rontos are large animals used for travel by Tatooine’s Jawas. They look as if an elephant, giraffe and rhino had a very large baby. This eatery is a large open air space with a meat spit centerpiece fashioned out of a former podracer engine.
Guests in California can now get The Ronto-less Garden Wrap ($12.99) which features an Impossible Foods plant-based sausage, spicy kimchi slaw, sweet pickled cucumber and Gochujang spread wrapped in pita.
This offering hasn’t made it to Florida yet.
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
The dining location serving the most vegan options in Black Spire Outpost is Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo.
Disney has crafted a few plant based dishes that are being offered at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
There is an additional dish available at the restaurant which can be easily modified vegan.
The first dish is the Felucian Garden Spread which is composed of plant-based kefta “meatballs” served over a bed of herb hummus and tomato-cucumber relish with pita bread. This dish is completely vegan as-is and the BEST quick service offering I’ve ever tasted inside a Disney Park!
Walt Disney World had previously perfected an Impossible burger kefta which is currently being served at Disneys California Grill as part of the Vegan Unplugged menu. Chef Brian Piasecki, culinary director of concept development at Walt Disney World Resort used to be the head chef at California Grill and the Galaxy’s Edge planning team likely took a cue from what was working over there.
You can read more about the vegan kefta here: Vegan Disney Food Review: California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
The Felucian Garden Spread is on the lunch and dinner menu in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Next up, A Taste of Takodana (off the kids menu) which is a black bean hummus topped with edible soil and nuts served with chilled veggie sticks and multi grain crisps. Skip the cup of ranch dressing it comes with.
This option is available at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
All of the adults at our table thoroughly enjoyed this “kid’s menu” offering so don’t hesitate to order it.
The last dish being offered in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland is something we learned could be modified vegan. Here’s how to order it.
Ask for the Yobshrimp Noodle Salad with rice noodles, no shrimp and substitute the normal sauce it comes with (which contains fish) for the sauce that the kid’s portion comes with which is a sweet orange dressing.
Honestly this dish was very bland. I actually took it back up and asked for a new one thinking they hadn’t tossed it in the orange dressing. The second portion came out almost as bland. If I were ordering this again I’d ask for a big cup of extra sauce on the side.
Here’s a look at our allergy receipt which was stamped “SPECIAL CARGO”.
During a return visit I ordered the kid’s portion of the Yobshrimp Noodle Salad with rice noodles and orange sauce, no shrimp and substituted the shrimp with the amazing hummus that comes in the Felucian Garden Spread then mixed that hummus in with the noodles which was phenomenal!
The Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo location in Disney’s Hollywood Studios has added an additional plant based offering to its kids menu.
This is the Peka Pasta Rings Youngling Meal ($8.99). It’s a simple pasta with an Impossible Foods “Meat” marinara sauce.
You can also order an adult sized version of this meal.
The adult Peka Pasta Rings ($14.49) is a more substantial portion size with larger chunks of plant meat.
Sadly, the Ithorian Garden Loaf, which could also be found at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo at Disneyland only, has been taken off the menu. This dish was described as a plant-based “meatloaf” served with roasted vegetable mash, seasonal vegetables and a mushroom sauce.
This dish was almost identical to the Plantmeat on Rootcrush that was being tested out and served to guests at the “Star Wars: Galactic Nights” event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios last May. I ended up eating several servings of it through the night and the event guide described it as a ration of vegetarian meatloaf, mashed potatoes, vegetables and mushroom gravy inspired by Unkar Plutt’s concession stand on Jakku.
The Ithorian Garden Loaf was available for dinner only at the Disneyland location. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Walt Disney World did not serve this dish.
We don’t know why it was taken off of the Disneyland menu or if it will ever return, but we will update this post if it does.
Next on the list is the…
It’s here at this quick service kiosk that you will be able to quench your thirst with a cup of Batuu’s legendary blue or green milk, served frozen.
The green variety is what Luke Skywalker had sustained himself on in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” on the planet Ahch-To.
Both of these options are made from plant milk. I sampled a rendition of the green milk at the last “Star Wars: Galactic Nights” event and wasn’t a huge fan. At that event, it was a non-dairy mix of soy milk, coconut milk, passion fruit and mint served over ice and it was a bit too weird for my liking.
The Blue Milk is made from a blend of coconut and rice milk with flavors of dragon fruit, pineapple, lime, and watermelon.
The Green Milk is a blend of coconut and rice milk with flavors of mandarin orange, passion fruit, grapefruit, and orange blossom.
Both Disneyland and Walt Disney World carry blue and green milk. Walt Disney World has a third and fourth option where you can get your blue and green milk with alcohol. The Blue Milk Cooler has Bacardi rum and the Green Milk Cooler has Corazon Blanco tequila.
Honestly, the Green Milk is not the best. Definitely opt for the Blue Milk if you’re only going to choose to sample one. You can also ask for an empty cup to mix them both together.
The next location on this out-of-this-world culinary journey takes us to the Black Spire Outpost watering hole Oga’s Cantina.
At this bar, guests indulge in adult beverages in an intimate setting. If Trader Sam’s was transported to Black Spire Outpost you’d get Oga’s Cantina. It’s kitsch on a galactic level.
Music is supplied by DJ Rex.
Capacity is capped at 246 people and ninety percent of the lounge is standing room only…you WILL be at a table with other guests.
None of the bites here are vegan friendly but there are a ton of specialty beers and cocktails!
Alcoholic beverages are limited to two per person. If you’re wanting to purchase an offering with a souvenir mug, those are capped at two and only one of each style per person. Our mugs were stamped “first edition” underneath so it’s safe to assume that there will be different variations of these released in the future.
Here’s a look at the Yuh Nub mug representing the Ewoks on the Forest Moon of Endor.
The Yub Nub is a mix of Malibu pineapple rum, Sailor Jerry spiced rum, citrus juices and passion fruit.
I had my sights set on the Rancor Beer Flight on a souvenir board with four teeth cups!
The Rancor Beer Flight comes with a sampling of the following four craft beers:
White Wampa Ale (Ballast Point Brewing Co.) – Classic Hefeweizen with a Banana and Citrus Character | ABV 4.5% – IBU 10
Bad Motivator IPA (Sierra Nevada Brewing Co) – Tropical India Pale Ale with Galaxy and Comet Hops | ABV 6.0% – IBU 50
Gamorrean Ale (New Belgium Brewing Co.) – Red Ale with Roasted Caramel, Hop Character, and Touch of Grapefruit | ABV 5.8% – IBU 42
Gold Squadron Lager (Blue Point Brewing Co.) – Golden Lager with Lavender and Plum Flavors | ABV 5.0% – IBU 18
How about a drink that makes your mouth go numb?
Here’s the Fuzzy Tauntaun with Cîroc peach vodka, Bols peach schnapps, Simply Orange with Tangerine, pure cane sugar and “Buzz Button Tingling” Foam.
In addition to alcoholic beverages, an unfrozen version of the blue milk is offered here. You’ll have to omit the vanilla-butter sugar cookie that comes with it. There is also an adorable commemorative mug which contains a non-alcoholic drink.
Order the Cliff Dweller. It’s a mixture of citrus juices, coconut, hibiscus-grenadine and Seagram’s Ginger Ale in a Porg mug.
Kat Saka’s Kettle
Kat Saka’s Kettle is offering a very unique popcorn…the ultimate vegan Galaxy’s Edge snack! Here’s a look at the Outpost Mix served here. It’s described as a savory, spicy, and sweet mix of flavors.
The popcorn is popped in coconut oil and after taking a look at the ingredients list we’ve found out that the two flavorings used are “Blueberry Lemon Poundcake” and “Red Chili Lime”.
All the ingredients listed are vegan. The only thing questionable is “natural and artificial flavors”. Enjoy at your discretion.
The Kat Saka’s location in Orlando offers guests a second vegan popcorn option.
This snack is called Galaxy Grains ($6.49). It’s your basic vegan “butter” flavored popcorn with a green tint to it. Nothing special, but a nice alternative for folks who aren’t fans of the Outpost Mix.
Over in Battu West in Disneyland guests can try the Chocolate Popcorn with Crait Red Salt ($6.49).
It’s the perfect blend of salty and sweet and has been described as tasting like coco puffs cereal.
This one isn’t available in Batuu East in Walt Disney World. Shoutout to our friend Happiest Vegan on Earth for the photo.
Gratuitous Batuu mixed recycling bin…
So what do you think? Have you made it into Galaxy’s Edge yet to try out any of the vegan food or beverage offerings?
