Oga's Cantina will be part of the new "Star Wars: Galaxy Edge" add-on.
The addition of the cantina will seal the deal for many fans, especially after they're read the tantalizing description of what to expect.
"You never know when a stormtrooper or a familiar face will show up," hints Trowbridge. "Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using "otherworldly" methods, served in unique vessels. With choices for kids and libations for adults, the cantina will make for a great stop!"
The bar is named after Oga, a new face in the Star Wars universe, described as "an intriguing alien proprietor."
Music will be supplied by RX-24 -- the pilot Disney fans will know from the much-loved "Star Tours" ride.
However, as Disney has traditionally been alcohol-free (aside from the hotels, Downtown Disney and Disney California Adventure) adding a bar to the parks is a watershed moment.
When he envisaged the park, Walt Disney wanted a wholesome, child-friendly experience without the addition of alcohol, so this historic change has prompted mixed reactions on social media:
"Historically Disney Parks have kept alcohol under control but in recent years it's getting worse.
The last thing I want to see is some drunk a**hole stumbling around The Magic Kingdom."
But some Disney fans embraced the change.
I tend to be a pretty hardline traditionalist when it comes to Disneyland, but alcohol sales were inevitable and, frankly, long overdue. It’s 2018 and the way we, as a culture, interact with alcohol is wildly different from 1955. Walt also didn’t want CMs to have beards.— David M.
