No visit to Galaxy’s Edge would be complete without a tall glass of Blue Milk and intergalactic travelers heading to Disneyland’s new themed land this summer will be able to choose between three varieties of the signature “Star Wars” drink.
The Milk Stand will offer two flavors — Blue Milk and Green Milk — in the Black Spire Outpost village, where the new land will be set in the “Star Wars” universe. Nearby, Oga’s Cantina will offer a third take on the beverage with a Blue Bantha milk and cookies combo.
The trio of “Star Wars” drinks will be sold at the 14-acre Galaxy’s Edge lands now under construction at Disneyland in Anaheim and Disney’s Hollywood Studios near Orlando, Florida.
Disney World food and beverage concept development director Brian Koziol unveiled Blue Milk, Green Milk and the Blue Bantha during a media event at Disneyland.

The result was a non-dairy, plant-based milk that will be similar to a soy, almond, coconut or rice milk.
“It’s not actually milk,” said Scott Trowbridge, the Walt Disney Imagineering creative executive overseeing the Galaxy’s Edge project. “If you’re walking around Florida in the middle of August, the last thing you want is a heated glass of milk. It’s refreshing, delicious and great.”
Storytelling is key in any Disney project and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is no exception. Every shop, restaurant and food stand in Black Spire Outpost will have an extensive backstory and proprietor from the “Star Wars” universe.
The best-known drink in the “Star Wars” galaxy will be served in Black Spire Outpost by the Bubo Wamba family farm. The Milk Stand will be located in a First Order-controlled sector of …
