Disneyland Will Serve Alcohol for the First Time in ‘Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge’


Some Disneyland purists believe that the Star Wars IP doesn’t belong in “Walt’s Park” at all. The same people won’t be too happy to hear that Disney is planning to serve alcohol in Disneyland Park for the very first time when the Star Wars expansion opens next year.

When Oga’s Cantina opens in Galaxy’s Edge, there will be alcoholic beverages.

Disneyland Park has never served alcohol in its 63-year history, at the request of Walt Disney himself.

From the OC Register

“They won’t have anything you can order on Earth,” said MiceChat.com blogger Todd Regan, who writes under the pen name Dusty Sage. “It’s inside its own galaxy.”

The decision to break with tradition and sell alcohol to the public is a landmark one, because Walt Disney always opposed selling liquor in the world’s first theme park, which he wanted to be a wholesome, family-friendly experience. However, booze and cocktails have been big money-makers at Disneyland’s sister theme park, Disney California Adventure, which opened in 2001, where the cocktail menu even changes with the seasons.

All four Walt Disney World parks and California Adventure now sell alcoholic beverages, so it’s not surprising. However, Disneyland Park was Walt’s park, and he didn’t want any alcohol in it. So it’s somewhat understandable why Disney purists would be upset.

The Register goes on to state that the alcohol will be quarantined to the Cantina, and there are currently no plans for alcohol to be offered elsewhere in Disneyland Park.

Give them time.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
