Last week, we shared a quick update on the food we tried on Galactic Starcruiser. This week, we’re coming at you with a more in-depth review of the dining experience with our full video of Galactic Starcruiser food. Let’s dig in!
One of the best things about Galactic Starcruiser is the food. Because Starcruiser is designed like an actual cruise (think Disney Cruise Line, but in space), food is a huge part of the experience. But why tell you about it when we can show you?

Dining on Galactic Starcruiser: What You Need to Know
Gearing up for your trip on Galactic Starcruiser? Make sure you’ve reviewed your itinerary and got your costume (they’re pretty expensive on the ship). Otherwise, it’s time to start fantasizing about all the galactic goodies you can guzzle down your gullet.
Here’s what you need to know about all the food on Galactic Starcruiser …
There’s Blue Milk
First and foremost: Yes, there is Blue Milk (and Green Milk) onboard—and it’s unlimited!
There Are Two Separate Menus for Dinner
Your first night is an Evening with Gaya.
You’ll enjoy live music from Gaya and her backup musicians while dining on options like Bantha Beef and Tip Yip Chicken.
On night two, you’ll experience the Taste Around the Galaxy menu.
Disney Can Handle Your Dietary Restrictions
Yes, that famous blue shrimp is a hallmark of the experience, but if you have a shellfish allergy, Disney has some other creative options for you to sample.
Same for those who dine gluten and/or dairy free: You’ve got plenty of options aboard Galactic Starcruiser.
Breakfast and Lunch Are Tapas Plate Style
While you’ll have more elegant dinner experiences, the breakfast and lunch buffet are not to be missed.
Unless, of course, you take your lunch on Batuu. Your trip to Galaxy’s Edge includes a meal at Docking Bay 7 or other Quick-Service options.
This is a good opportunity to get outside and enjoy the sun since Starcruiser is a famously indoor experience. (Yes, there really are no visible windows.)
You’ll Take Your Meals in the Crown of Corellia Dining Room
The Crown of Corellia Dining Room is located on Deck 4 of the Halcyon starship. In between meals, you can also order a drink at the Sublight Lounge on Deck 6.
It’s Not As All-Inclusive As You Think
Galactic Starcruiser isn’t cheap (in case you missed that bit before), so you’d assume that all the dining is included. And for the most part, it is.
Just be prepared to pay extra if you want to enjoy an alcoholic beverage (or even a specialty non-alcoholic beverage) or spring for the Captain’s Table experience at booking.
The Food Is Good
Don’t be offput by the weird colors and textures (though be prepared if you bring along a picky eater). Though we only got to sample a little bit of food during our media preview, we loved every bite and cannot wait for our full stay as actual guests later this month.
You can see all of what we tried in the Galactic Starcruiser food video we put together, but here’s a quick list:
- Bantha Beef Tenderloin
- Tip Yip Chicken Spiral Dumpling
- Flora Noodle Salad
- Seared Kashyyyk Whitefish
- Jogan Fruit
You can also try beverages like the Muja Twist and Pod Chaser.
We sampled the Blue Milk Citrus Fizz and Yeruda Poison Spitter (both non-alcoholic), but we of course had to try at least one alcoholic option. We went with the Hoth Icebreaker: a lemon- and vodka-based drink with beautiful presentation and delightful taste.
But the Food Might Not Be Worth It for Some
The price of Galactic Starcruiser (it isn’t cheap) has some Disney fans questioning whether the experience is worth it. Based on our media preview, we can guarantee that diehard Star Wars fans who are willing to interact and play in a true LARP setting will love this experience, and it’ll be worth every penny. But if you’re just looking for lodging with light theming and a place to sleep at nice, Starcrusier is probably not the right fit for you.
That said, if you are bought into the overall experience, the food is the cherry on top.

Thanks to Disney for hosting us on a Media Preview of Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser where we got to tour the ship, try some of the onboard experiences, hear from Cast Members working to bring the project to life, plus had the chance to stay at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. #GalacticStarcruiser
