Disneyland is about to start serving alcohol for the first time ever, and here’s how to partake
Although visitors to Magic Kingdom and Disney’s California Adventure have been able to indulge in boozy concoctions for a while now, Disneyland itself has remained alcohol-free. Until now, that is. On August 30th, the theme park announced that, starting in 2019, it will sell alcoholic drinks—and it’s part of an upcoming Star Wars attraction.
In a post on the Disney Parks Blog, the company announced that the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction will feature a watering hole called Oga’s Cantina—an establishment modeled after the infamous cantina depicted in A New Hope. The blog post notes that Oga’s Cantina will feature “choices for kids and libations for adults,” meaning that soon, guests to the park will be able to drink like Han Solo.
"Oga’s Cantina is the kind of establishment that attracts some of the most interesting and disreputable characters in the galaxy," the post says of the new drinking spot. "And you never know when a stormtrooper or a familiar face will show up. Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using “otherworldly methods, served in unique vessels."
The post also notes that RX-24, the droid pilot who debuted in the Star Tours attraction, will be the cantina’s DJ.
We already can’t wait to visit.
According to CNBC, the opening of Oga’s Cantina marks the first time that alcohol will be served at Disneyland since the park opened back in 1955. Four other Disney parks already allow guests to enjoy their adult beverages of choice, so it was only a matter of time before the Happiest Place on Earth got a Happy Hour of its own.
