Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is exactly what you’d want it to be! The theming is incredible. When you step inside this counter service restaurant, you’ll feel like you are in a different galaxy. You’d almost expect a Wookie to walk in and sit down and eat with you.
In Docking Bay 7, in Galaxy’s Edge, Disney Imagineers have created a really cool counter service restaurants. The story jumps out from before you walk in the door. Welcome to Batuu’s best fast food restaurant.
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
What should a Star Wars restaurant look like? Pretty much exactly like this! Dad thinks Disney got this design just right. You’re gonna love it! Trust me!!
What to Expect
The food at Docking Bay 7 isn’t just burgers and fries. These are foods that look like they came out of Star Wars! As you would expect, they have strange names and look a bit strange, but they are made of regular types of food and for the most part they taste like it, but sometimes there are some funky seasonings that give the food an “interesting” taste.
You might not care as much about the food, you’re just wondering, “Dad? Dad? Does it look cool?” Yes it does! This place looks like it came right out of a Star Wars film!
With many of the well themed restaurants at Walt Disney World there is a backstory. Dad loves a good backstory! For Docking Bay 7, the story is that Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs brought a freighter to Batuu and is selling out of this world food to the locals!
Inside you everything looks incredible! The first time you see it, you’ll want to let out a Wookie yell of excitement! It looks like a freighter. Every detail was planned out by the Imagineers.
Signs are hard to find and read in Galaxy’s Edge so it helps to know where you are going. One way to find DB7 is to look for the engine testing facility. It’s underneath it.
Or when flying the Millenium Falcon, you can sure work up an appetite! If you exit Millenium Falcon Smuggler’s Run looking for something to eat, you’re in luck! Head to the right and up some stairs and up some stairs, you’ll see Docking Bay 7 on your right. If you get to Savi’s Workshop you’ve gone too far. How you walked right by the large freighter ship is anyone’s guess!
If you’re in Galaxy’s Edge in the morning–well, bright suns–make plans to stop by Docking Bay 7. There’s not a lot of choice for breakfast, remember, you’re in a small outpost on the edge of the galaxy. There’s not a lot of choice. I will say breakfast is more “normalish” food than lunch and dinner.
You can find the breakfast menu here on the Disney website
Lunch & Dinner
The Lunch and Dinner menu at Docking Bay 7 is interesting and has gone through several iterations. It’s the same food, but they’ve changed the name to be more descriptive. Basically there are six entrees including, beef pot roast, fried chicken, shrimp and noodle salad, pork ribs, grilled chicken salad, and plant-based meatballs (I’ll pass on those).
Each of those has a Battuian name like Endorian Fried Chicken Tip Yip and most of them have an interesting plating. For the most part, they are pretty good, but like most of the quick service in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, something is lacking.
Lunch and dinner share the same menu so take a look and make your choice.
