Looks like the immersion is already being pulled back at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
According to WDWNT (again you should follow them they are always on top of the news) most of the menu items at the Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo at Disney’s Hollywood Studios have been altered to remove the Star Wars themed names and give them more common and easier to order names.
Star Wars themed menu items have new names:
For example Smoked Kaadu Ribs are now just listed as Smoked Pork Ribs. Yobshrimp Noodle Salad is now just Shrimp & Noodle Salad. Roasted or Fried Endorian Tip-yip is now listed as Roasted Chicken Salad or Fried Chicken. And Felucian Garden Spread is now listed at Hummus Garden Spread.
The Kid’s Menus are also changed
Now Yobshrimp Noodle Salad is just Shrimp Noodle Salad and Taste of Takodana is now just Veggie Dippers. (Neither item were something my kids would have eaten when they were little.)
What didn’t change was the breakfast or dessert listings.
Why do this?
The only reason I can think is that guests were confused by the names (never mind there are pictures and descriptions with the items.) Yet the breakfast menu is the same?
The down side is that yet more immersion has been removed from the area. It’s already struggling enough to win fans over, then this. Probably going to save the names for the expensive, up-charged, LARPing hotel because it will likely attract the “true fans” that would get the names. Who knows.
Either way you just order ribs or shrimp salad now. I’m sure it’s more efficient at least.
Has Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge changed their menu too?
I just checked and Disneyland has not changed theirs online yet. You can keep checking that here.
