What to eat at Disney’s Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser

Of course, you’ll need to work up an appetite for your trip aboard the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, but you might want to make sure it’s an adventurous appetite.

Like any luxury experience, there will be no shortage of food aboard the Halcyon – the name of the ship. However, the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser edible offerings at Walt Disney World will be unique and out-of-this-world choices.

“These are all very familiar flavors on your palate, but visually they will look very, very different,” said Brian Piasecki, culinary director of Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts concept development. “We want to continue the storytelling and the immersive experience with food.”

Here are some things to prepare you for the dining experience aboard this two-day, two-night vacation that’s described – not as a hotel but – as an immersive cruise-like journey (although this one doesn’t move technically than with Disney “magic”).

Guests are served two breakfasts and two lunches aboard the Halcyon. Both meals are taken in the main dining room, Corellia’s Crown and served in a “unique buffet” style.

You won’t find Mickey waffles on the menu here, but you will find the Star Wars version: a waffle with the Starcruiser logo on it. There is no assigned time for breakfast and lunch as guests can go at their leisure.

On the second day of the voyage, passengers have the option to disembark the ship and visit the planet Batuu (located in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios). The vacation package includes a meal on Batuu, but if a guest decides to stay on the ship, they can have lunch in the dining room instead. Or, for those with a big appetite, they can have lunch on Batuu and a second lunch on the boat.

The Crown of Corellia Dining Room will be transformed for dinner each evening. On the first night, guests will enjoy a family-style meal with options such as a bento box with bao rolls, spiral vegetable salad and four different sauces. Other offerings include green-infused rice and a dish the team members call “something those on another planet call chicken.”

While the guests feast, they are entertained by Gaya, a famous singer from the world of Star Wars. The second night is described as an upscale dining experience and wine dinner. With each course, the chef comes out and talks about the food and the planet that inspired that dish.

Chances are there are a few kids, and maybe even adults, on board the ship who aren’t about to eat Bantha Beef Tenderloin, Flora Noodle Salad, or Cocktail. of Felician Glazed Shrimp. Carefree. Chef Piasecki and his team thought of you when creating the menus. There’s always an option to get classics like cheese pizza, butter noodles, and chicken fingers.

There are also plenty of options for guests who have dietary restrictions due to food allergies or other restrictions, whether gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, or any other limitation.

The story continues below.

If guests get hungry between meals, several dining options are available. The Sublight Lounge serves small bites and a range of festive alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, such as Hoth Icebreaker, Cloud of Bespin and Dagobah Vimlet.

Servers also assist customers seated just outside the lounge in the atrium. Food and beverages available in the Sublight Lounge are available for an additional charge. There is a snack area in the atrium that has offers for customers.

On the second night of the voyage, after dinner, the crew hosts a “candy and treats” event in the Crown of Corellia Dining Room. Customers can help themselves to ice cream, cookies and other treats.

You will not be having breakfast in bed as in-room dining is not an option. However, Chef Piasecki said the culinary team is continually looking for ways to grow.

“We will always continue to evolve because a lot of it will be based on the planets we visit in the future,” he said.
