“Star Wars: Galactic Nights” at Hollywood Studios promises to be an evening of “Star Wars-themed” action, entertainment, and adventure. It is also gearing up to be one of the best food events that Walt Disney World offers. Let’s take a closer look at some of the offerings:
The food and drinks featured at “Star Wars: Galactic Nights” is inspired by beloved “Star Wars” characters, worlds, and stories. Disney’s culinary team has dreamed up a great variety of gourmet bites just for the event as well as a few new options including Dueling Gazpacho. The Dueling Gazpacho is inspired by the lightsaber duel between Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and Sith Lord Darth Maul and features dueling flavors of red pepper and cucumber-melon.
Also new is the Three-Cheese Pasta with a Meatball. This pasta dish features a creamy three-cheese sauce and spicy lamb and beef meatball and is inspired by the brave and persevering Resistance Movement. Looking for a little sweet and spicy? Then, look no further than the Sweet and Spicy Fried Drumstick. Guests who try this dish will sink their teeth into a honey-chili glazed drumstick with a pepper jelly biscuit. This dish gives credit to Chewbacca’s friendship with the porgs of Ahch-To.
A few dishes will only be found at the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge. The first one to check out is the Lemon Diver Scallop with Pork Belly. This dish combines the land and sea and pays homage to Luke’s time on the that marine planet. Another option at the Brown Derby is the Tofu and Rice Noodles which was inspired by Coruscant. This adventurous dish features a vibrant medley of pan-seared tofu, leeks, red onions, and noodles.
If you can’t resist the adorable Ewoks, then you won’t be able to resists this new offering – Soba Noodle Salad. The Soba Noodle Salad compliments the Ewoks and their home on the Forest Moon of Endor. The Soba Noodle Salad consists of chili-soy Soba noodles, cucumbers, and carrots. To make it even more irresistible, it is topped with a hard-boiled, chili-glazed deviled egg. Also vegetarian, is the Plantmeat on Rootcrush which is inspired by Unkar Plutt’s concession stand on Jakku. Featured on this galactic dish is vegetarian meatloaf, mashed potatoes, root vegetables, and mushroom gravy. One bite of this and you will be energized to trade with the scavengers.
Next up is a trap of delicious flavors! Guests looking for a little seafood action can sink their teeth into sweet corn cheese grits topped with a steamed crawfish and smothered in a decadent Louisiana boil broth. And, it’s not a party without some loaded cheese fries. The “Star Wars: Galactic Nights” take on loaded cheese fries, Loaded Red Curry Duck Fries, is inspired by the Battle of Crait and features seasoned fries that are topped with duck confit, red curry ketchup, and white blended cheese sauce. If anything will spark the hope of a rebellion, the Loaded Red Curry Dick Fries will!
Inspired by Erso’s homestead which is known for its lowlands and black sand beaches, this Fish and Chips with smoked Paprika Remoulade comes alongside root vegetable chips and will have Guests thinking of Lah’mu. Looking to get even more adventurous? Head on over to BaseLine Tap House for the Ancho-Chili Octopus. The Ancho-Chili Octopus features octopus (of course!), jicama, pear, and cucumber slaw. This under-the-seas dish is based on Sarlacc, the creature found in the Dune Sea region of Tatooine.
Looking for some sweet treats? Have no fear! “Star Wars: Galactic Nights” will have all the favorites including Sweet and Crunchy Popcorn, “Star Wars-themed” Orange Truffle Cupcake, Mini-éclair Trio, and Glow Cotton Candy. But the highlight of all the all the sweet items is the Lightsaber Churros!
If this is not your first “Star Wars: Galactic Nights” event, then you might be familiar with some of these returning options such as the C-3PO Charcuterie, Yoda Pepperoni Pizza, Pork Wings with Blueberry Slaw, Vegan Blue Milk Curry, Grilled Wagyu Beef Slider, Bloody Mary Grilled Shrimp and Chorizo Skewer, Crab Suo, and Ribeye Steak Puff.
Guests are also invited to cheers “Star Wars” with a Skywalker Wine Flight which features Chardonnay, Pinot Noir Rosé, and Sommitia Pinot Noir from Skywalker Vineyards in Marin County, California. For Guests looking for a non-alcoholic option, the Jettison Juice is not to be missed!
