Use the Force if:
- Chewy is your main wookie
- You like to take pictures of your food
- You always play with your food
- You’ve always thought corn dogs were light sabers
Go to the dark side if:
- You have a hard time believing the condiment station is a force field
- You think $11 is too much to pay for fruit even if it is on a skewer
- You didn’t bother to make a reservation
It’s still Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and they have a new “pop up” restaurant. Seriously, I thought the whole pop up store concept was limited to New York. They had pop up sample sales, mini golf, shoe stores, and cat coffee houses. Yes, a coffee house where you could play with cats. This was almost as good.
The Rebel Hangar kind of came out of no where. But, it also kind of came out of another restaurant. Don’t worry – they disguised it so that no one could tell the difference…
Disney slyly draped netting over the condiments station and movie-themed decor to make you feel like you’re on planet in a Galaxy far far away. Then, they offered “themed” food to the best of their abilities.
The real star offering was the Darth Maul hummus. I have never been so excited to eat hummus covered in ketchup. Yes, those are bugles (hello, 1987 lunch packs).
The Darth Vader waffles might have been even more awesome than Mickey waffles. Also, Sarah dropped her waffle while trying to take a picture of it and they brought her back two! Thanks, Disney!
My favorite was the Jedi slider. I was actually surprised that I didn’t prefer the dark side. The force must be strong within me.
Disney started stretching it a bit with their “light saber bites,” which are corn dogs that look just like corn dogs. We did use them to fight, though.
Chewbacca fries are the only way that I am going to eat fries! It’s amazing that a little theming can change my whole outlook on diet.
I didn’t get to try any of these cupcakes because they were devoured faster then Jabba the Hutt’s dinner. I heard that Yoda was delicious.
I had my own Yoda dessert! The best part was that there were bubble tea balls under his ears! I’m not sure if they were supposed to be background or forest or earwax, but they were noms.
One of the nicest parts about dining at the Rebel Hangar is the friends that come join your table. Chewbacca offered to fly us anywhere we wanted! Of course, when he saw Charlie’s shirt, he face palmed.
Other friends wanted to hang out with us, too!
As you can tell, we tried to dress up for the occasion.
You may think I’m trying to do some nerdy Star Wars symbol, but I’m actually just trying to make a heart because i ❤ Star Wars Weekends!
These two battled it out to the end.
And then went home and tortured their pets.
