If you’re like us, Star Wars is a big deal. So when we heard about Galactic Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a one night event showcasing all things Star Wars, we knew we had to go. We were especially excited after we saw that vegan options were going to be offered!
We bought the Galactic Tasting Package. For $30 per person, you get 5 digital vouchers to use at each food location. They are simply emailed to you, then when you order your food they scan the code on your phone. You also got seating for the Galaxy’s Edge panel.
The food offered was just for the night and were located at various quick service or snack locations in the park. The first thing we tried was the Vegan Blue Milk Curry from Sunshine Day Cafe. The portion felt more like a snack than a meal. But with that being said, it was very good. The blue milk was actually coconut milk so it had great flavor.
Next up we tried the Plantmeat on Rootcrush. On the guide map it was listed as vegetarian, but after talking to a manager we were thrilled to find out it was vegan. We were also very happy to see it was made with the Impossible burger! This dish felt more like a meal to us. Hopefully they add this to a menu somewhere on property, it was that good.
There was third option that looked like it could’ve been modified to be vegan. It was the Soba Noodle Bowl. However, after speaking with a Chef, we were told there was fish sauce in the dish. So it could not be made vegan even with just removing the egg.
Because both vegan options for dinner were awesome, we were hoping for a special dessert too. After asking the managers what we could have, we ended up with Enjoy Life Cookies. Always a yummy thing to have! The managers felt so bad about not having a Star Wars themed vegan dessert they gave us the cookies for free!
Would we go to another Galactic Nights? If they have great options like they did this time, definitely. We also got to walk right up to meet Buzz & Woody, then walked right on to Toy Story Midway Mania. We wish we could’ve met Darth Vader but it was a 55 minute wait constantly throughout the night. We also wish the fireworks were a bit earlier. They were set for midnight (when the event ended) and we had to leave before then. Our Mouseketeer was ready to head out for bed!
