Beer in Disneyland? Yup, it’s happening. And you can bet there’s gonna be a whole heck of a lot of backlash–along with a whole heck of a lot of celebrating! As Deadline says, the Happiest Place on Earth might be getting a little happier. The announcement of the new Oga’s Cantina at Black Spire Outpost, part of Disneyland’s GIGANTIC Star Wars land addition, was chock full of details about Oga Garra, cantina treats, and RX-24, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid we first met I Star Tours. But it’s the announcement that guests could “taste the best drinks in the galaxy” that got everyone’s attention.
According to Deadline: “Although the theme park already offers alcohol in its adjacent Disney California Adventure park (and in its exclusive private Club 33 at Disneyland itself), the public liquor sales mark a first in the park’s 63-year history. The initial rollout of liquor sales will take place at the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction in the Oga’s Cantina that’s part of the complex, scheduled to open next year. The menu will offer beer, wine and outer space theme cocktails.” Read the full Deadline post here.
