Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Gluten Free Guide + Blue & Green Milk Ingredients
Bright Sun! That’s Batuuese for Hello.
Walking in to Galaxy’s Edge is pretty magnificent! Disneyland really went above and beyond to make sure that you feel galaxies away from the real world. The cast-members… I mean the “villagers” — of Batuu have a specific language (Batuuese) so you really are lightyears away from The Happiest Place On Earth.
We made it to opening day for what I call “Star Wars Land” and had a reservation from 2pm to 6pm. It was just enough time for us to eat every gluten free item that we could find and still manage to make it on the ride and have plenty time to sightsee. We did not, however make it into the Cantina but, considering we don’t drink, it wasn’t a loss for us. I look forward to seeing it sometime, as I hear it’s really cool!
Just like my other Gluten Free Disneyland Guides Part 1 & Part 2, let me mention some “know before you go” info!
Most Disney chefs, restaurants and quick-service locations can accommodate the following common food allergies:
Gluten or wheat
Milk or lactose
Peanuts and tree nuts
B.Y.O.S. (Bring Your Own Snacks)
If you are unsure of finding snacks that suit your needs, wants and magical desires — you can bring your own. Bring safe snacks for the whole family in a backpack, purse or even get a locker on Main Street or in California Adventure to store your goodies. Just don’t bring any glass or alcohol. However, if you're gluten allergy is anaphylactic, make sure you carry your epipen with you wherever you go. DO NOT LEAVE IT IN THE LOCKERS!
Before you GO:
Read THIS information on the Disneyland website
Disney: "For questions/requests related to food allergies, intolerances and other special dietary needs, contact us at Special.Diets@disneyland.com"
Look at menus online and have a plan.
Before you ORDER:
Make sure your server knows about your special dietary needs. Do not hesitate to repeat yourself, and make sure your server understands.
Ask a million questions until you feel confident that your server understands what you can and cannot have, but please be nice.
Read the entire menu and get creative! Ask your server what they recommend based on what you can and can’t have, and even ask to speak to the chef, if need be.
If someone says “it should be fine” take that as a red flag and ask again or don’t order it. They most likely haven’t a clue and are unaware of how serious food allergies are.
Reiterate what you can and cannot have. It sounds redundant, but this is for your health and safety.
I have done lots of the research for you below, but with menu changes, new chefs, seasonal menus and just the fact that ingredients can change, it’s always good to follow the steps above by talking to the chef and alerting your server about your dietary restrictions or special dietary needs. With that said, here are the Allergy Friendly Menus for Docking Bay 7 (the only allergy friendly menus in Galaxy's Edge).
I really love that there were so many plant-based options in Galaxy’s Edge, and we even found Kombucha, too! The Kombucha is from Suja. It’s Organic (huzzah!), dairy free and gluten free (although not certified gluten free).
We can also talk about the coveted BLUE MILK & GREEN MILK. Both of these are really popular and there is much excitement around them. The ingredients are listed in this blog. You can read why they are NOT gluten free down below.
Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge
Docking Bay 7 - Food & Cargo
Roasted Endorian Tip-Yip Salad
Marinated Chicken, Mixed Greens, Roasted Seasonal Vegetables, Quinoa, and Pumpkin Seeds, tossed in Green Curry Ranch
Feedback: This was probably our favorite of the 3 meals here, although we thought they were all great. I didn’t feel like there was too much dressing, and it wasn’t spicy at all. I do not handle spicy foods well and wasn’t sure how the curry would be, but we loved this one!
Yobshrimp Noodle Salad (kids)
Chilled Shrimp, Noodles, Vegetables, and Cilantro served with choice of Small Lowfat Milk or Small Dasani® Water.
Feedback: This was pretty good. It was also kind of refreshing, too. I would get it again.
Ithorian Garden Loaf (Plant Based)
Plant-based "Meatloaf", Roasted Vegetable Potato Mash, Seasonal Vegetables, Mushroom Sauce
Feedback: Honestly this looks just like meat and it tastes like meat and even has a “meaty” texture, but it is totally plant based! I asked for the Mushroom Sauce on the side. It was like gravy. We don’t even like mushrooms, and we loved the sauce on the “meatloaf”. We would definitely order this again. The “meatloaf” is made from Impossible Meat, which you can read more about here.
Felucian Garden Spread (no pita bread)
Plant-based "Kefta", Herb Hummus, Tomato-Cucumber Relish, (NO PITA)
Feedback: These “Kefta” (meatballs) are made with Impossible Meat (which you can read here) as well as onions, garlic, quinoa and spices. They were pretty good. Just order it without pita bread.
Batuubucha Tea (Organic, dairy free & gluten free — not certified)
Suja® Pineapple Passionfruit Kombucha™
Feedback: We love kombucha & are thrilled to see kombucha at the park now! It’s also organic, so that’s super cool! It is certified USDA Organic, and their website says that it is also gluten free and dairy free, though it’s not certified. Drink at your own risk.
I did not try either of these menu items, but I DID speak to a Cast Member who works at this quick service restaurant. She said that the Overnight Oats are NOT safe, as they are made with regular oats that are NOT certified gluten free. She said that she had even told the chef (as she has a gluten allergy), and the chef chose not to 1) get certified gluten free oats and 2) take it off the gluten free menu. So - please be cautious with the Overnight Oats, despite the fact that the menu says that they are Gluten Free.
Rising Moons Overnight Oats
Overnight Oats, Dragon Fruit, Yogurt, Seasonal Fruit
Bright Suns Youngling Breakfast
Scrambled Egg, Purple Potatoes, seasonal fresh Fruit served with choice of Small Lowfat Milk or Small Dasani® Water. Meets Disney Nutrition Guidelines for Complete Meals without substitutions
Ronto Wrap (ask for chef)
Grilled Pork Sausage, Peppercorn Sauce on the side, tangy Slaw, no pita
Feedback: It was tasty! We spoke to the chef and ordered the Grilled Pork Sausage with the slaw on top and the sauce on the side - no pita bread and no pork. I do have to say that the chef was kind, but also not 100% familiar with knowing what has gluten and what doesn’t. However — he did keep going to the back to check. Always talk to the chef!
Milk Stand (Green & Blue Milk)
Just in case you would like the information on the Blue Milk & Green Milk with ingredients and our feedback, read below. They are NOT gluten free, as they do contain oats which are not certified gluten free. Let me say this though, they are plant based and they do not contain food dyes! The ingredients are listen below!
These are fun & funky drinks. I personally like that they are dairy free and plant based, as it includes a lot more people.
Blue Milk (Dragon Fruit)
Plant-based blend of Coconut and Rice milks
Green Milk (Mandarin Orange Blossom)
Plant-based blend of Coconut and Rice milks
Feedback: Well, for the fact that they are plant based and made without food dyes, that alone makes it taste pretty good in my book. I think you will either love them or hate them (just like Butterbeer at Harry Potter Land). I think I preferred the Green Milk over the Blue Milk.
Thanks for reading and I hope this helps you on your next trip to Disneyland’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge! And as they say on Batuu, ’Til the Spires.’ (Farewell) and I wish you a “Good Journey”, ‘May the spires keep you’ and don’t spend all your money in one place.
