UPDATE: Great news! Disney has opened online Advance Dining Reservations for Rebel Hangar for WEEKDAYS in addition to Star Wars Weekends, from May 15 through June 14th!
Star Wars Weekends begin at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 15th and WE. CAN’T. WAIT!
Especially now, since there’s a whole new dining hangout for all you Rebels out there coming to Echo Lake: the Rebel Hangar: A Star Wars Lounge Experience!
Here’s what we know: according to Disney, the Rebel Hangar was “once a known hangout of Rebel pilots, aliens, and smugglers.” Themeing of the atmosphere will be a major part of the experience, with abandoned spacecraft and remnants of vehicles framing the entry. But themeing of the FOOD seems to be just as much of a draw!
Among the items on the menu: some Fruit and Cheese Sabers…
And Ensalada Naboo!
The Slider Sampler featuring “The Sith” barbecue-braised brisket and “The Jedi” barbecued pulled chicken features items for your inner Jedi or your Dark Side.
A lovely Trio of Thermal Detonators (aka spicy pork wings), anyone 😉 ?
Check out the Pilot’s Pomme Frites with everyone’s favorite Wookie!
Chips and SITH!!! Can you even handle it?!?
I’m already loving The Dark Fried Chicken
and Darth Vader Waffles!
And, of course, Lightsaber Bites (corn-battered bratswurst)!
Specialty drinks will include the Rebel Red (Grey Goose vodka, Chambord, sour mix and a splash of grenadine) and the Tatooine Sunset (Stoli vanilla, Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, pineapple juice with grenadine) among several others!
And for dessert? How about a little (no pun intended 🙂 ), Mini Yoda Key Lime Cake?
Character-themed Cupcakes will make their return again this year! In addition to Darth Vader and Yoda, JABBA THE HUTT is joining the lineup!
If you can’t hangout in the Hangar, the Jabba and Hutt and Yoda cupcakes will be available at the Trolley Car Cafe, Starring Rolls, Backlot Express, and the new Tusken Fridge Raiders snack stop at Darth’s Mall. The Darth Vader Cupcakes will be available at ALL Hollywood Studios Quick Service locations.
Advance Dining Reservations are online NOW starting May 15th and ending June 14th from 4:00 to 9:00 pm. Interested guests may also call 407-WDW-DINE. There is no prepayment required — just the standard credit card guarantee. The menu is a la carte, with items ranging from $5.49 to $16.99.
This is bound to fill up fast, so May the Force Be With You!
