Walt Disney’s original theme park, Disneyland in California, opened in 1955 full of rides and attractions for families. One thing you did not find publicly available within the gates of Disneyland, however, was alcohol.
This was very much by Walt’s design, and Disneyland has remained free of alcohol sales to this very day (though there is alcohol available within Disneyland’s very expensive private club, Club 33). As other Disney parks, such as Walt Disney World’s Epcot and eventually even Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Florida, offered up in-park alcohol for purchase, Disneyland has remained a dry theme park — just as it was in 1955.
For 64 years Disneyland did not break with its booze-free tradition, but the arrival of Star Wars Land in 2019 will mark the dawning of a new era for adult Disneyland visitors. The official Disneyland Today Twitter account shared a very interesting sneak peek of Oga’s Cantina that is set to open within Star Wars: Galaxy Edge. The caption said “… kick up your feet and enjoy one of the best drinks in the galaxy.”
That could be interpreted to simply mean they will be offering some sort of non-alcoholic space drinks, but when you dig deeper within the attached link, the (official) Disney Parks Blog confirms, “We are developing a specialty cocktail (non-alcohol and alcohol-based) menu that will include creatively themed custom cocktails, and proprietary beer and wine options.”
Like it, love it or hate it, alcohol is coming to a galaxy not too far away when Oga’s Canita opens at Disneyland next year.
