Last May Disneyland launched Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in California, and with the launch came the galactic spork.
Docking Bay 7 had this special utensil for guests to use, but then guests started taking them as souvenirs or to re-sell online. As a result they were removed from use.
But in normal Disney style they realized they were losing money on a potential up-charge. I mean why waste those when you can make some money on them?
Now you can buy the sporks at Docking Bay 7 in Disneyland for about $11. But good news, it comes in it’s own bag.
All jokes aside. I don’t blame Disney for stopping their use when they were being stolen but charging $11 seems a bit high. It’s only available as 1 per guest per transaction (while supplies last.)
I have to wonder if these were overstock from what was supposed to go to Walt Disney World’s Galaxy’s Edge and Disney figured they would re-coup some costs, hence the (while supplies last.) But who knows, maybe they had a bunch more made. If they are popular I’m sure more will appear.
Walt Disney World will probably have them too soon.
Of course Twitter didn’t disappoint with the fun comments:
“Will you guys hold my table in the courtyard? I gotta go wash my spork in the bathroom. You know, Star Wars stuff.”

Obi Wan: “Your father’s lightsaber. This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a Disney Spork. An elegant weapon… for a more civilized age.”

“May the spork be with you” is not a thing.

I’m not surprised they brought it back. They even went to the trouble of putting it in Jedi Fallen Order:
