PHOTOS: Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo Reopens in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge with Social Distancing and No Sporks at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Bright Suns travelers, and welcome back to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! We are back at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for previews prior to its grand reopening on Wednesday, and we were thrilled to be back in Batuu. Exploring the park and all its new health and safety measures is tiring work, so we headed to Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo for a bite to eat, away from the hot Batuuan sun. Let’s take a look at the new protocols in place inside the restaurant, and get a bite to eat together!
Walking inside Docking Bay 7, it is harder to immediately notice any of the new social distancing measures in place, due to the dramatic amount of thematic elements already in place throughout the restaurant. In other restaurants across Walt Disney World, tables have been moved to increase space between parties.
However, new signage has been added to tables to advise guests not to sit at certain tables, to keep up with the new guidance.
Docking Bay 7 is currently operating a Mobile Order-only system. Guests are instructed outside the restaurant to complete their order through the My Disney Experience app, and then they are permitted to enter once their order shows up as complete.
We can see that there are new floor markers installed leading up to the counter, advising guests of where to stand as they wait for their food. The stickers snake around the themed elements to the restaurant, ensuring that the line travels in the most efficient direction for social distancing.
When our food arrived, we took a seat in this red corner of the restaurant, nice and socially-distanced from other guests!
