Once a year this dining venue that caters more to the toddler and pre-schooler set with characters like Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Handy Manny takes on a more ‘out of this world’ flavor with some mashed up characters from Star Wars.
And not only is there a character change but the menu is also spiced up to meet the expectations of any reputable Star Wars fanatic.
The meal will run you about $60 for adults and $40 for children. Space will be limited as this is a very hot reservation. So once they announce the dates get ready to pounce!
Character Mash Ups
You are not going to get your normal characters here.
There is no Darth Vader or Princess Leia. There isn’t even a Donald Duck or a Mickey Mouse.
Instead you get the best of both worlds. Prepare yourself for some unique character interactions as you meet Ewok Chip & Dale, Jedi Mickey, Leia Minnie, Darth Goofy, and Stormtrooper Donald.
As you enter you will have your official photo (which is included with the meal) taken with Ewok Chip & Dale prior to being seated at your table.
As you enjoy your meal Jedi Mickey, Leia Minnie, Darth Goofy, and Stormtrooper Donald will stop by your table. About one every 10 minutes. It really is fast paced so keep your camera ready.
Themed Food Items
Delicious Bites with a Star Wars Twist
The main buffet has your savory items but with a Star Wars twist. Everything has a Star Wars inspired name. Yes, some are better than others but they all actually made you excited to try the food.
Some examples are “Kessel Run” Roasted Strip Loin, “R2-D2’s” Cantaloupe Salad or “Tusken Raider” Thai Beef Salad.
The kids even get into the action with “Chewbacca’s” Chicken Tenders. Our youngest had to be different and scarfed down a fair amount of Lando’s Lobster and Shrimp Mac ‘n Cheese.
After you get your fill of the main courses head on over to the dessert bar. Here you can choose to be a part of the Rebel Alliance or join the Dark Side as each side of the dessert bar represents the two sides of the force.
The Rebel Alliance offers up tasty morsels of “Yoda” cupcakes, “Chewbacca” shaped cookies, Rebel Cheesecake, Jedi Mickey Lime Tart and the fan favorite Aunt Beru’s Blue Milk Ice Cream.
Head over to the dark side and grab some “Darth Vader” cupcakes, “Stormtrooper” cookies or Boba’s Brwonies and Marshmallows.
Now I won’t say anything if you happen to be a double agent and work both sides of the dessert bar.
Play Your Part Accordingly
This is not your normal character meal as the characters are even in character. Be prepared to choose your side and play your part accordingly.
You may want to offer your assistance to Darth Goofy take over restaurant from those pesky rebel fighters. Or you can go another way and warn Jedi Mickey that you saw Darth Goofy coming for him.
Remember that Leia Minnie DOES NOT need help from the boys. She can take care of herself against the dark side any day.
Now I was disappointed with my favorite Stormtrooper Donald. I hopefully asked if he was a rebel spy in disguise. Unfortunately I found out he is fully aligned with Darth Goofy. So sad.
But my favorite interaction was not caught on film. I had lost a part of my camera and I was asking a cast member at the front if they had seen it. Ewok Chip & Dale overheard me and began looking through all of the cast members pockets looking for it.
The cast members had no idea what was going on and the look of surprise was hilarious as Ewok Chip & Dale scurried about to check them all. Love those guys!
Crossing My Fingers For It’s Return
There is a rumor that this type of meal will go away with the introduction of Star Wars Land. The idea is they want to purify Star Wars and having the Fab 5 dressed in character does not meet that image.
Personally I hope they give these guys a pass. This meal is so much fun and helps introduce Star Wars to the younger crowd. The other meals may be a bit to scary and over their heads.
So if they do offer it in 2016 jump on this meal before it is gone!!
What do you think? Should this meal stay or go with Star Wars Land?
