Will drinks make the difference at Disney World's Galaxy's Edge?

August 2, 2019, 11:35 AM · With Disneyland's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge not delivering the wall-to-wall crowds that Disney's original theme park braced itself for this summer, with Walt Disney World do anything different when it opens its installation of the new Star Wars land this month?

Yes. It's gonna pour a lot more booze.

When Galaxy's Edge opened on May 31 at Disneyland, its Oga's Cantina became the first location in the park's 64-year history to sell alcohol to the public. That dry legacy influenced Disney's decision to take it slow with the introduction of alcohol into the park.

No such history impairs Disney's ability to sling drinks like an old west saloon host in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Not only will Oga be open for business at Walt Disney World's installation of the Black Spire Outpost, but you will be able to buy hard beverages at Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo, Ronto Roasters, and even the Milk Stand.

That location serves the land's Blue and Green Milk, with the added options of rum in the Blue and tequila in the Green at Disney World. Ronto Roasters will be offering Trandoshan Ale, a spiced wheat ale, as well as a Coruscant Cooler, with Kentucky bourbon, cherry liqueur, fortified wine, cranberry, and lime juice.

Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo's alcohol menu will include Takodana Quencher, with dragon berry rum, blue curaƧao, Simply Orange with pineapple, and kiwi. And Oga's will expand Disneyland's original drink menu by adding Rodian Ration, with vodka, sour apple liqueur, Sprite, and green apple popping pearl. (It's like the grown-up version of Oga's Obsession.)

Will more drinks be enough to rally the crowds at Walt Disney World? Or will the inherent difference between the visitor mix at Disneyland and Walt Disney World drive more traffic there? Or will many fans also hold off on visits until Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens? Fortunately for those who prefer to visit Disney in Florida, they won't have to wait all that long. The largest ride in Galaxy's Edge opens at Walt Disney World on December 5, then at Disneyland on January 17, 2020.
