A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a mysterious, sunny land called Florida. And in that land was a magical place known as Disney World…
If you haven't caught on, we're talking about the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge theme park that officially opened today at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. For those who aren't well-versed in Wookie (shame on you), Galaxy's Edge is the latest interactive installment in the Star Wars franchise marketing itself as a fully immersive experience for visitors hoping to see where some of their favorite fictional movies took place. Per the official press release: “Batuu is a far-flung destination along the galaxy’s Outer Rim, on the frontier of Wild Space—the uncharted region beyond all known star systems. The planet is home to Black Spire Outpost, an infamous port for smugglers, traders and adventures wishing to avoid any unnecessary…entanglements with the First Order.”
In celebration of the official opening, Disney is also debuting a number of new aptly themed treats. So hop in your spaceship and gun it to light speed because these galactic goodies are only around for a limited time.
1. Chewbacca Chocolate-Hazelnut Cupcake
Any Nutella fans out there? This chocolate cupcake is filled with a chocolate-hazelnut spread and topped with a chocolate-hazelnut buttercream and a candy sash to resemble Han Solo's trusty sidekick, Chewie. It's available at Everything POP Shopping at Disney's Pop Century Resort and Landscape of Flavors at Disney's Art of Animation Resort from now through September 21.
2. Millennium Falcon Chocolate Pop
This milk chocolate lollipop is shaped like the infamous Millennium Falcon, the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy." Guests can find it at the Ganachery at Disney Springs (which you don't need a ticket to enter) from now through September 7.
3. Chewbacca Cake
This full-size dome cake is available at Amorette's Patisserie, the high-end pastry shop in Disney Springs. With four different flavors to choose from, guests can preorder this cake between now and September 12.
4. The Dark Side Dessert
This mini red velvet cake with a cream cheese swirl and galactic chocolate ganache coating sits on top of a delightfully crisp sugar cookie (because who wants to decide between a cake and a cookie). Available now through September 29, guests can pick this up at the Beach Club Marketplace and the Market at Ale and Compass at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resort.
5. Galactic Funnel Cake
Topped with strawberries, candy rocks and cookies and cream crumbles, this is no ordinary funnel cake. Find this out-of-this-world snack at Disney's Hollywood Studios available now for (you guessed it) a limited time.
