Canceled Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Dinner Show Restaurant Will Come to Life in Disney World’s Star Wars Hotel

How many of you remember watching the Disneyland 60th Anniversary TV special on ABC back in 2016? Do you remember when Harrison Ford introduced a short preview segment about the newly announced “Star Wars Land” for Disney Parks? If you do, you probably remember seeing concept art for what looked like a dinner show restaurant.

Well, it was a very real idea, and one that came close to fruition. Disney didn’t forget about this concept either, but rather only canceled plans to add it to Black Spire Outpost given capacity concerns. Provided the insane lines we’ve seen at Oga’s Cantina during these reservation periods with a controlled crowd size, it’s hard to argue that Disney didn’t make the right decision not adding a table service experience to the mix. The land didn’t need it. However, a luxury resort experience could probably use such a fine dining experience…

During D23 Expo 2017, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek announced plans to create the most experiential concept ever in an immersive Star Wars-themed hotel at Walt Disney World Resort. Dedicated entirely to the galaxy of Star Wars, it will be a one-of-a-kind experience where a luxury resort meets a multi-day adventure in a galaxy far, far away.

Plans currently have the dinner show restaurant in the very middle of Walt Disney World’s upcoming Star Wars Resort Hotel, tentatively titled “Galactic Journeys: A Star Wars Adventure”. The two-night, three-day experience will include many things to do aboard the faux-space liner (think cruise ship in outer space) that will connect guests via “transport” to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Chandrila Star Line experience will include the dinner show as part of the “all-inclusive” resort price, which is expected to be quite hefty per person, but given demand and the number of guests with money to burn visiting Disney World, shouldn’t really have a whole lot of vacancy when it opens in 2021.

Start banking those credits now, because you’re going to need to steal a lot of coaxium to afford to stay at the Star Wars Hotel and dine at the very-exclusive dinner show restaurant in two years time.

They didn’t need a table service restaurant in GE but they need a super exclusive restaurant that most people won’t get to experience? Because Ogas is so small they needed a table service restaurant in GE.

Not sure I’ll ever pull it off, but I’d love to get in there someday for a stay & a meal.
As you pointed out, this is a very logical decision by Disney

That won’t stop the typical crybabies from complaining how Disney only caters to the rich nowadays.
You know, the ones who piss & moan because the Adventurers Club went away, yet never spent a dime in there during their multiple visits.

After visiting Black Spire my party must disagree in that we thought the one thing ,missing was exactly a nice, sit down restaurant. Disneyland missed the boat on this one as they need another nice, sit down location.
