Disney World’s Star Wars Galactic Nights FOOD is INSANE This Year!

The Star Wars: Galactic Nights event will return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 27th! This extra-ticket, one-night-only event will include access to select attractions in the the park, character greetings, a special projections show in addition to Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, and MUCH more!

Part of the “much more” includes specialty FOOD just for the event! PLUS, there’s an add-on to allow guests to taste even more treats around the Galaxy: the Galactic Tasting Sampler and Viewing Package! Let’s peek at the food first, then continue scrolling for more info about the Sampler, Table Service dining menus, and more!

Specialty Food at Galactic Nights

It’s a Galaxy Gourmet for this year’s Galactic Nights event! Returning items will include the famous LIGHTSABER CHURROS!

Keep an eye out for the Lightsaber Churro Sundae, too. Sweet and Crunchy Popcorn, the Star Wars-themed Orange Truffle Cupcake, the Mini-Éclair Trio, and Glow Cotton Candy will also make their way back to the event from a galaxy far, far away…

Tapas-sized gourmet offerings (think Epcot Food and Wine Festival) will be available throughout the park, with up to 25 food and drink items to choose from!

Among the new items this year will be the Dueling Gazpacho.

First Look and Review: BaseLine Tap House Opens in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Welcome to the new Grand Avenue in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

This is where you’ll find BaseLine Tap House — the new lounge (as in, just opened TODAY!) located in what was formerly known as The Writer’s Stop. In fact, the Grand Avenue area is a portion of the park that once celebrated the architecture and culture of New York City and San Francisco — by way of posing as movie sets for both — when it was known as the Streets of America.

Grand Avenue, however, is a nod to Los Angeles, California. And BaseLine Tap House plays its part in the scene by offering California beers, cider and wine, along with specialty cocktails and a small bites menu.

So, as the song goes… California, here we come!

Aah, it’s good to see some life just around the corner from Sci-Fi Dine In Restaurant again… [Read more…]

Photos: BaseLine Tap House Construction Shots in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

We got an unexpected look at the construction of BaseLine Tap House in Disney’s Hollywood Studios today. The construction walls, which normally hide this very un-magical work from guest view, were down, presumably due to the approaching hurricane.

BaseLine Tap House — which will serve beer, wine, and appetizers — will reside on Grand Avenue, a new-ish area that’s designed to capture “the spirit of Downtown Los Angeles.” We say new-ish because it’ll mostly be located in the remnants of Streets of America.

Let’s take a look! So far there’s lots of stylized fencing and lamp posts.
