Breakfast at Docking Bay 7

Docking Bay 7 is a fast service restaurant situated in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and (on the time of this publish) is without doubt one of the park’s latest eating choices. We have been fortunate sufficient (or loopy sufficient!) to attend the opening of Galaxy’s Edge on August 29, 2019. Throughout our go to on opening day, we knew we needed to get at the very least one meal at Docking Bay 7. As a result of we arrived within the new land at 4:45 a.m., breakfast was our meal of alternative for the day.

Environment

The restaurant is housed in a working hangar bar. And, because the story goes, Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs runs the joint and prepares dishes with components all throughout the galaxy.

The restaurant’s exterior does look fairly a bit like a hangar bay. And, you’ll see numerous mechanical touches inside and outside. On opening day, the restaurant’s signal was having a little bit of a malfunction, so I needed to chuckle on the half lit digital signal.

Inside, you’ll discover quite a lot of spots to take pleasure in your meal — together with freighter crates, benches, and tables. There’s some actually intelligent seating to make you are feeling such as you actually are in a working hangar.

You’ll additionally hear some basic ambient noise that appears like ship’s being labored on whilst you dine there. As you may see from the photograph, seating was a bit onerous to return by on opening day. The restaurant really has much less seating than I anticipated, so do make certain be looking out for various seating choices. There’s outside seating in a small alcove too, however in August in Florida that wasn’t too interesting — even at eight a.m.

The Meals

The meals at Docking Bay 7 is meant to be impressed by Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs’ planet-hopping travels and options unique flavors. Whereas this can be true at lunch and dinner, breakfast is a little more commonplace.

For friends with particular dietary wants, Docking Bay 7 does presently have an allergy-friendly breakfast menu. I will probably be sincere that that is most likely one of the vital restricted fast service breakfast menus I’ve ever seen for sure particular dietary wants. For those who’re dairy free, I’d simply skip this restaurant altogether for breakfast. The one actual choices for dairy free friends are plain potatoes and fruit. For those who’re gluten free, it’s fairly restricted too.

For those who do have a particular dietary want, they’ll deliver a chef out to help you with any questions that you simply might need. On our go to, I needed to see if the sausage served at breakfast was additionally a gluten free choice because it was not listed on the allergy-friendly menu.

Sadly, as I discovered from Chef Quan, the sausage has a cross-contamination situation, as it’s grilled on the identical floor because the gluten-filled pita bread. The Vibrant Suns Youngling Breakfast doesn’t include sausage. So, that defined why the grownup model of the breakfast platter was not a gluten free choice however that the Youngling model was.

On one other apart, when you have celiac illness, I’d not order the Rising Moons In a single day Oats which is listed as gluten free on the allergy-friendly menu. The restaurant doesn’t presently use licensed gluten free oats or purity protocol oats (the most secure oats for anybody with celiac illness). And, there’s a excessive threat of cross-contamination because of the processing of the oats. This was positively a bummer to see it listed as a secure choice as a result of conventional oats will not be thought-about secure for anybody with celiac illness or a wheat allergy.

As a result of my solely actual choice was the Vibrant Suns Youngling Breakfast, that’s what I ordered. This got here with a Three-Cheese Egg Chunk, Purple Potatoes, and Recent Fruit. I’m not a giant fan of melon, so I requested if I may get additional potatoes as an alternative, which Chef Quan was comfortable to do.

For those who can have dairy, this can be a good little breakfast — although I’d most likely simply get breakfast elsewhere with extra choices as an alternative. The egg chew was sous vide and was actually tasty. The purple potatoes have been additionally well-seasoned. All in all, not unhealthy. However, not superb.

With Brandon’s allergy symptoms, the chef additionally really useful that he order the Vibrant Suns Youngling Breakfast. This makes the Youngling Breakfast choice gluten free, fish/shellfish free, peanut free, and hen & turkey free. Sadly, there’s a cross-contamination situation for friends with nut allergy symptoms with the Mustafarian Lava Roll.

Brandon did get fruit along with his entree, and he stated total the entree was excellent. I feel we each typically preferred it however neither considered one of us have been wowed.

Total

Relating to getting a fast service breakfast at Disney World, Docking Bay 7 wouldn’t be on the high of my listing. I’d eat the Vibrant Suns Youngling Breakfast entree once more, however provided that we have been strapped for time or I actually wanted one thing to eat. There are rather a lot higher fast service choices on the Disney World resorts that may accommodate and provides friends a bigger number of dishes to select from. Whereas we have been actually appreciative that the chef took the time to speak to us and tried to accommodate as finest he may, the restricted menu choices make it a location we’ll skip for breakfast on most events.
