Rebel Hangar: A Star Wars Lounge Experience Coming to Star Wars Weekends

Guests attending Star Wars Weekends will be able to find shelter and sustenance in the Rebel Hangar: A Star Wars Lounge Experience. Reports have been made that this location was once a known hangout of Rebel pilots, aliens and smugglers; with the immersive environment and stellar bites—I understand why!


Look for a menu full of Star Wars-themed food and beverage offerings that are out of this world:

  • Pilot’s Pomme Frites – these are tossed with parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley with a garlic aioli for dipping
  • Ensalada Naboo – seared chicken breast, bibb lettuce, grape tomatoes, watermelon radish, almond frica, and a parmesan-peppercorn ranch dressing
  • Lightsaber Bites – hand-dipped corn-battered knockwurst sausages with house-made chips and mustard dipping sauce
  • The Dark Fried – Chicken and Darth Vader waffles served with maple syrup and sweet barbecue sauce
  • Trio of Thermal Detonators – spicy pork wings topped with spicy piquillo-pepper sauce and slaw
  • Slider Sampler featuring “The Sith” barbecue-braised brisket with cole slaw and “The Jedi” with barbecued pulled chicken with arugula
  • Fruit and Cheese “Sabers” featuring Tillamook cheddar, Brie, goat cheese, pickled vegetables, crostini, cheddar crackers, blueberries, raspberries, honeydew melon, strawberry, olives and gherkins
  • Chips & Sith – hummus with red pepper coulis, black sesame dust, and corn tortilla chips
  • Yoda Key Lime Cake
  • Trio of Star Wars mini cupcakes, including Mini Darth Vader (chocolate-peanut butter), Mini Yoda (chocolate-hazelnut), and Mini Jabba the Hutt (salted caramel latte) served in the Han Solo Carbonite Souvenir Box

A new drink menu will also be available:

  • Imperial Blue – Maker’s Mark Whisky, Cointreau, Blue Curacao, sweet and sour, topped with Sprite
  • Tatooine Sunset – Stoli vanilla, Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, pineapple juice with grenadine
  • Rebel Red – Grey Goose vodka, Chambord, sour mix and a splash of grenadine
  • Dagobah Swamp Juice – Midori, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, sweet and sour, topped with lemon-lime foam
  • The Dark Side – Stoli vanilla vodka, Bailey’s liqueur, crème de cocoa and brownie garnish
  • Alderaan Ale

The Jabba the Hutt and Yoda cupcakes will also be available at Tusken Fridge Raiders, Trolley Car Café, Starring Rolls Cafe, and Backlot Express. The Darth Vader cupcake will be available at all quick-service locations, including Starring Rolls Cafe, and Trolley Car Cafe and Tusken Fridge Raiders at Darth’s Mall.

For Reservations, visit DisneyWorld.com/dine or call 407-WDW-DINE.

May the food be with you!


  • I checked with Disney. They do accept DDP.

  • Thanks for the suggestions about non-SWW days! I was able to book a Monday afternoon at 4:30 pm.

  • Thanks, Marie! I was able to reserve for a weekday!

  • Hi All, Be sure to recheck, as this has been put back online and all of the weekdays have been added as well so it will be easier to get a ressie for this event. May the Force Be With You!!!

  • This isn’t showing up anywhere on the Disney web site anymore. What happened?

  • It seems like there is a lot of interest still! I will be there the 3rd weekend and hope there will be something available… Open it up to lunch too??!! SWW is always fun and a great experience! Please let us know!

  • I am wondering the same thing about making reservations…I have called Club Level Itinerary services 3 times today, as well as Disney Dining directly and they are saying there is a glitch in the system and it won’t allow them to check or reserve this, as well as some other dining and event experiences.
    1. Can you confirm if there are other days as mentioned in another comment, like Thursdays or any other days? And if so, do you know when the “glitch” will be resolved?
    2. And just to confirmed as mentioned in another comment, there is definitely a walk-up option?
    3. And since this was just announced this week, is there a chance that the Ultimate Day at SWW VIP Tour will be allowed to go to this?
    Would really appreciate any and all details you have to share!!
    Thank-you so much, our arrival is May 14th, day after my Bday and we are SO excited!!

  • This doesn’t even show up and an option at the webpage you included in the post. I tried calling your reservation line and she said there is no availability left for any day. Sounds like you guys didn’t anticipate the interest in this well enough. Maybe you need more space or available times if it sold out in just a couple of days. Would also be nice if you noted on this page that it’s not available anymore instead of sending people off on a wild goose chase for something that is sold out.

  • This no longer shows up in the reservation tool. Could you have someone take a look?

  • Is there a possibility that this is completely sold out already? I am trying via website and it’s just telling me there is a problem searching.

  • Hi there, This sounds like a fun addition, but as the weekends are completely booked solid, is there any chance that this could be expanded to an every day event, the same as with the Star Wars Breakfasts? I think it would be a great way to get more people to take advantage of a unique offering. May the Force be with you!!!

  • very very frustrating that already NO reservations are available for either the first or last weekend

  • Agree with the post above. Frustrating it’s already booked for when we’ll be there. Earlier today a CM informed told there is a $14.95 cover?

    • Hi David, I apologize for the confusion but there is no cover charge at Rebel Hangar: A Star Wars Lounge Experience. Keep checking, occasionally cancellations free up some reservation times!

  • I was also able to make a reservation for a Thursday, there were lots of Thursday times available!

  • While calling it ‘whisky’ is correct, Maker’s Mark is more accurately (and popularly) known as ‘bourbon.’ And since MM uses the Scottish traditional spelling ‘whisky’ as opposed to the American spelling ‘whiskey’, you might want to change it to avoid guests erroneously thinking it’s a spelling error on your part.
    Especially if this menu ends up in the park permanently as part of a Star Wars expansion 😉
    That being said, these food and drinks look great. Especially the Darth Maul hummus. Clever presentation!

  • When you say something like “you never know who will show up in the hangar” SOMEONE better show up. If this ends up just eating food with Star Wars names in a room decorated like a hangar, I’ll be pretty disappointed.

  • PAT^^^^ I was able to make a reservation for Thursday

  • It says that it will be held during the Star Wars Weekends event. But, the dining website let me make a reservation for a Thursday. Are there non SWW days that this will be open. I’m hoping this wasn’t just a glitch and, I don’t really have a reservation.

  • Any chance this might be extended to more than just the weekends and/or from 4pm-9pm? Seems like there are more of us that would like to enjoy this than you guys have availability for. As frequent visitors we are “starved” for new experiences, so to speak.

    Thanks very much!

  • Can you explain what you mean by a highly immersive experience? Much of the information has been very vague in regards to Star Wars Weekends, which is making it very hard to plan with a baby and 2 older children. What kind of experience can we expect? Characters? Music entertainment (cantina band?) I have most special events planned, but want to plan ahead on what I may be able to cut out or not “stress” about. I know you guys will make it an awesome experience, but if you could be a bit more helpful to us uber planners, we would appreciate it greatly 🙂

  • thank you so much for answering questions. It sounds like it’s going to be amazing!! 10 more days 😀

    • I can’t wait! 🙂

  • Hi ! Can you tell me if any characters will be walking around or any character entertainment ?

  • I have the same question. Will they accept walk up for wait list?

  • Do you need reservations or can you get on a wait list?

    • Hi Timothy, Reservations are highly recommended, but there will be limited outdoor seating for walk-ups, weather permitting.

  • Crazy that this is booked already! And that we are just hearing about it!! I have been keeping track of all Star Wars related news since we are coming specifically for this event, first time I saw anything about this. Even had talked to a CM about dining for our trip and she didn’t bring it up.

  • Where exactly is this located Rachel? Disney culinary creative theming at its best, must say!

    • I agree! Rebel Hangar: A Star Wars Lounge Experience will be taking over part of Backlot Express from 4-9p.m. during Star Wars Weekends.

  • What is the minimum dollar amount required? My 6 year old grandson would love the experience but I can’t see him wanting to eat anything on the menu. We’re going to the fireworks dessert party so the sweet items are also not an option.

  • This is very disappointing. The first Friday and Saturday already are booked, and the gal on the phone said they’ve been taking reservations since at least last week. How can we find out about these things in time to take advantage of them? If they’re not being announced here first, where are they being announced?

  • Does the Dark Fried come with chicken nuggets or chicken on a bone?

    • They are boneless.

  • Rachel, besides the food, is there anything else unique to this experience that can’t be found elsewhere?

    • Hi Jared, besides the Star Wars-themed menu items, look for a highly immersive lounge environment.

  • Hi, will beer or wine be available at the lounge, or just the specialty drinks ?

    • Hi Virginia, the Alderaan Ale is a craft beer.

  • Need to do this at Disneyland!

  • How much will it be? Any idea of pricing? Is this buffet?

    • Hi Ronald, the lounge menu will be a la carte, with prices ranging from $5.49 to $16.99.

  • Will there be any glow items for the drinks? Any characters roaming? If so, which ones? We will be there 5/17 and CAN’T WAIT!

  • Can we get more details on this? Prices on food and if/what characters will be available at this meal? This info is so vague! Thanks 🙂

  • This looks fantastic! With there be any other kid friendly food offerings?

    • Hi Maria, there is not a children’s menu – but they may enjoy sharing the The Dark Fried or Lightsaber Bites. 🙂

  • Just FYI-call the Dining number to book if website not working-the CM’s are aware of the bookings:)

  • Can we get prices of food/drinks. Will the drinks have cool Glow item with them? Will TIW discounts be allowed?

    • Hi Julia, Menu prices range from $5.49 to $16.99. Yes, some of the specialty alcoholic drinks will be served with a souvenir glow cube or clip. Tables in Wonderland discount will not be accepted.

  • And not a single cup of Bantha milk to be had anywhere? (So blue! So refreshing, under even the glaring Tatooine suns!) 😉

  • I too would like to know. Are there going to be characters walking around? Both from the “light side” and from the “dark side”? Also what are the prices on the items? Are any of the drinks getting glow cubes and anything “special”? I just so excited for this

    • I’m excited too! Menu items range from $5.49 to $16.99, and yes some of the specialty drinks will have a glow cube or clip. Characters will not be visiting tables, but you never know who might be in an abandoned hangar…

  • How much are food and drink items? Is the Han Solo bucket the popcorn bucket or is it different?

  • Can i use DDP?

    • Rebel Hangar: A Star Wars Lounge Experience does not accept the Disney Dining Plan.

  • How much are most the food and beverage items? Is the Han Solo bucket the cupcakes are in the Same as the popcorn bucket?

  • What is the price ,

    • Hi Jean, menu items range between $5.49 and and $16.99.

  • I’m running into an error trying to book this. “A problem occurred while looking for availability. Please try again later.” Any idea as to why this is occurring?

    This looks spectacular and I’m excited to try all these tasty-looking items!

    • Hi Russell, You can always try calling 407-WDW-DINE if the website is having issues.

  • Already booked for 2 separate days and can’t wait! Is this now considered a table service or is it still a considered a quick service? And when will prices be available? Will there be Bantha Milk available (for kids:))?

  • This looks awesome, can’t wait. Are there going to be characters walking around? available for pictures or just roaming? Also what are the prices on the items?

    • No, characters are not planned to visit guests at their tables. However, you never know who you’ll find in the abandoned hangar…
