We broke the news on January 6 that the Backlot Express would be offering a newly revamped menu starting January 7. As previously reported, many of the Star Wars themed offerings have been removed from the menu. There is no need to march with the First Order in outrage though! Many fan favorites can still be found on the menu and have only been renamed. An example of this includes the Southwest Salad with Chicken.
Two of the new menu offerings are the Cuban Sandwich and the Chicken and Biscuits entrée. The Cuban Sandwich consists of classically-pressed roasted pulled pork, sliced ham, swiss, pickles, and mustard. It is served with your choice of carrot sticks or French fries. The Chicken Breast Strips and Biscuit entrée is served with crumbled bacon, country gravy, and a spicy strawberry glaze. (Yum!)
The Backlot Express is located in the Echo Lake section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The theme of this particular section is “Hollywood’s Golden Age”. The revamped menu aligns the offerings found at the Backlot Express with this theme. The Backlot Express is actually one of my favorite places to grab a quick snack after watching the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular or riding Star Tours – The Adventure Continues. It is located close by and has both indoor and outdoor seating.
All hope shouldn’t be lost though! For those looking to get a Star Wars themed drink fix, the BB-8 Souvenir Sipper is still available on the menu for the time being. The BB-8 Souvenir Sipper is served with your favorite fountain beverage. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is scheduled to be open late Fall 2019. I would expect there to be some amazing Star Wars themed food and drink items once this highly anticipated area is open.
