Are you ready to join the Rebel Alliance and defeat the Galactic Empire? Then book a car over at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant (or hitch a ride, as I always do, in true Rebel fashion) and try out the new Rebel Shake!
Resistance Shake – $7.00
It’s interesting to note here that the “official” name of the shake is actually the Resistance Shake, but the chocolate piece references the Rebel Alliance. The Resistance was actually the successor to the Rebel Alliance, and while they’re both essentially fighting against totalitarian military powers, the Rebel Alliance fought against the Galactic Empire (of which there is no presence of in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge) and the Resistance fights against the First Order (which is the time frame we’re in for the last of the third trilogy and for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.)
Okay, now with that aside… let’s get back into the shake.
The shake is actually a layered blend of pineapple Dole Whip and orange Dole Whip swirl. If you’re into orange creamscicles or fruity shakes, this one’s for you. Do note that Dole Whips are usually dairy-free, but the shake is, of course, blended with milk, making this a creamier, less-tart version of the originals.
The top of the glass includes a sugar rim as well as the aforementioned Rebel Alliance chocolate piece nestled into a swirl of whipped cream. For $7.00, it’s not any more expensive than the other shakes offered here, and it’s great if you want to switch it up or get something Star Wars-inspired while “off-planet” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. For $7.00, you get a dessert (or beverage) that’s definitely shareable, and it’s one of the best values in the park. We never pass up an opportunity to eat at Sci-Fi Dine-In, so all in all, that always comes recommended.
