Hungry for some Kaadu, Shaak, or Tip-yip? Star Wars fans and other visitors to the Galaxy's Edge lands at Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World might know these exotic names as the meats served inside the Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo restaurant in those lands. But starting today, you won't find them at Walt Disney World.
The same dishes remain on the menu, but Disney has stripped them of their themed names, according to the menus listed on DisneyWorld.com and the official Disney World app. The original, themed names remain on the menu at Disneyland.
The new names certainly are easier to understand, especially if you are an international visitor with limited English and perhaps limited knowledge of Star Wars canon. But using the "Terran" names for these entrees dilutes some of the storytelling and placemaking for the land.
Though, to be honest, I hadn't remembered any of these names before the restaurant opened, and I've seen all the Star Wars films, read several books and comics, and seen a few of the TV shows. So it's not like Disney is renaming the Millennium Falcon or anything like that. Other then the Blue and Green Milk, none of the food or drink that Disney is offering inside Galaxy's Edge comes from the Star Wars canon, so it's all park-specific plussing anyway.
Themed names remain on the menu on both coasts at Ronto Roasters and Oga's Cantina.Tweet
