Olga’s Cantina: Opening in late 2019, the cantina will be serving up themed cocktails, non-alcoholic specialty drinks, and Blue Milk!  Blue Milk first appeared in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In the movies, it was rich blue-colored milk produced by female Banthas and it was also called Bantha milk. The cantina will have entertainment options, including the original Star Tours Captain Rex, RX-24 laying down the tracks as the DJ.

The other dining venue featured in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be a “dinner club” style restaurant with an in-park dinner show.  The name of this restaurant has not been released as of yet.

Disney Springs Restaurants

Slated to open in the Summer of 2019 and still under construction, the NBA Experience will be an entertainment center that is basketball-themed.  Guests will get an idea what it is like for the NBA draft, create scouting reports, participate in pregame prep and see if they make the highlight reel with a slam dunk.

Disney’s Riviera Resort

If you would like another rooftop dining experience with views of Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, then you will want to head over to the new Disney’s Riviera Resort.  This sister resort to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is projected to open in Fall 2019. As of yet, this restaurant has not been named.

Epcot Restaurants

An all-new table service restaurant will be coming to the Japan Pavilion in the World Showcase.  This will be a signature dining experience that will draw from Japanese art and nature. It will fit in perfectly with the cultural experiences that are available to visiting guests in World Showcase. Disney did confirm that the restaurant would be sometime in the near future and we may see it open as soon as Fall 2019.
