New Season of the Force special food menus at Disneyland

In a galaxy not so far away and not so long ago, Disneyland launched the Season of the Force event in Tomorrowland. Part of the fun is the new menu items that will be available. Tomorrowland Terrace has been transformed into the Galactic Grill as part of this special celebration. Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port also gets a few new dishes to try as well.

The menu has been divided into the dark side and light side. Those who opt for the dark side can dare to try the spicy First Order Specialty Burger. Note the black buns, which first gained fame in Japan. This version looks just as menacing and perfectly fits the dish. If you like spicy, then this burger will surely hit the spot. The patty consists of a beef and chorizo blend with fried cherry peppers on top. The black buns are slathered with a spicy lime aioli.

Souvenir seekers can actually get the First Order Specialty Burger served inside the Han Solo popcorn bucket. It’s in the shape of Han Solo frozen in carbonite, one of the most iconic scenes from all the Star Wars films. This costs an extra $8, so the total with burger and bucket would be $19.49.

If you prefer to go with the light side, then you can choose the Jedi Order Grilled Chicken Sandwich. This is a Five-Spice chicken breast topped with a bevy of gourmet ingredients including fried green beans, pickled red onion, watercress and wasabi mayo. Sounds delicious!

Other light side items include the Cheese-3PO Burger and Chopper Salad. The cheeseburger looks like it will just contain the standard fixings, just with a fancy Star Wars moniker. As for the Chopper Salad, it has grilled chicken, feta cheese, and roasted pepper ranch dressing.

Vegetarians can partake of Wicket’s Wicked Veggie Sandwich. This is a portobello mushroom and vegetable combination that comes with either french fries or fresh fruit.

A couple of specialty drinks will also be available. The first is called “The Dark Side,” which consists of Odwalla® Lemonade and Strawberry. It comes with a souvenir light up Death Star cube. The other offering, “The Light Side,” is made of Odwalla® Lemonade and Granny Smith Apple with yogurt “meteors” that look like boba balls. You get a light up Millennium Falcon with this drink.

Who doesn’t love dessert? A trio of sweet treats will be offered at the Galactic Grill including the cute BB-8 Droid Crisped Rice Treat, The Pastry Menace, and Darth by Chocolate. The BB-8 Droid is crisped rice mixed with marshmallows, white chocolate and milk chocolate candies. The evil looking Pastry Menace is an éclair filled with milk chocolate that’s been “spiked” with a hint of cayenne pepper. Darth by Chocolate is a clever rift of the “Death by Chocolate” dessert. Layers of red velvet cake, chocolate sponge cake, and dark chocolate ganache may kill your taste buds with flavor.

Kids meals are pretty much the same as before, just with a few modifications to the names and one cool addition. There is the Force Power Pack, Jawa Turkey Sand-Wich, Han Burger, and AT-ST Chicken Walker Nuggets. The Jawa Turkey Sand-Wich looks new and is particularly interesting because of the Bantha Blue Milk Bread.

If you go to Disneyland park early in the morning, you may want to consider trying out Galactic Grill for breakfast. There are several options that look really good. You can have the Darth Tamale, which is a blue corn tamale with scrambled eggs and chorizo, red chili sauce and tomatillo salsa. Lars Family Breakfast Platter contains scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, and a biscuit. The Bantha Blue Milk Bread dish is french toast with bacon and fresh fruit.

Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port gets a few unique Star Wars menu items as well. The list includes The Fields of Naboo salad, Forest of Endor pasta, and Dark Side Chicken Curry Specialty Pizza that you can get by the slice or a whole pie. Disney has really upped their culinary game with these dishes. The Fields of Naboo salad is a mix of Romaine and Frisée lettuces, mango, green papaya, strawberries, feta cheese, and pickled yogurt spheres tossed in a citrus vinaigrette. Forest of Endor pasta has casarecce pasta, smoked cremini mushrooms, kale, Broccolini, cannellini beans, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts tossed in garlic oil and grated Romano cheese. Going to the dark side will certainly be tasty as you eat the Dark Side Chicken Curry Specialty Pizza. This spicy, exotic pie has chicken, roasted cauliflower, gouda and mozzarella cheeses, pickled vegetables and fried beans. Grab a slice for $9.99, or a whole pie for $32.00.

Whether you choose the dark side or light side, one thing is certain – you will not go hungry. The number of food options is outstanding. In fact, I wouldn’t be against them making these dishes permanent fixtures at Disneyland. Tomorrowland Terrace has been mediocre at best when it comes to counter service cuisine. Galactic Grill looks to improve upon that a great deal. In any case, be sure to check out the food while the Season of the Force is upon us.
