Breakfast at Docking Bay 7

Docking Bay 7 is a fast service restaurant positioned in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and (on the time of this publish) is likely one of the park’s latest eating choices. We had been fortunate sufficient (or loopy sufficient!) to attend the opening of Galaxy’s Edge on August 29, 2019. Throughout our go to on opening day, we knew we needed to get at the least one meal at Docking Bay 7. As a result of we arrived within the new land at 4:45 a.m., breakfast was our meal of alternative for the day.

Environment

The restaurant is housed in a working hangar bar. And, because the story goes, Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs runs the joint and prepares dishes with components all throughout the galaxy.

The restaurant’s exterior does look fairly a bit like a hangar bay. And, you’ll see numerous mechanical touches inside and outside. On opening day, the restaurant’s signal was having a little bit of a malfunction, so I needed to chuckle on the half lit digital signal.

You’ll additionally hear some common ambient noise that seems like ship’s being labored on when you dine there. As you possibly can see from the photograph, seating was a bit onerous to come back by on opening day. The restaurant truly has much less seating than I anticipated, so do be certain be looking out for various seating choices. There’s outside seating in a small alcove too, however in August in Florida that wasn’t too interesting — even at eight a.m.

The Meals

The meals at Docking Bay 7 is meant to be impressed by Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs’ planet-hopping travels and options unique flavors. Whereas this can be true at lunch and dinner, breakfast is a little more customary.

For company with particular dietary wants, Docking Bay 7 does presently have an allergy-friendly breakfast menu. I can be sincere that that is in all probability one of the crucial restricted fast service breakfast menus I’ve ever seen for sure particular dietary wants. In case you’re dairy free, I might simply skip this restaurant altogether for breakfast. The one actual choices for dairy free company are plain potatoes and fruit. In case you’re gluten free, it’s fairly restricted too.

In case you do have a particular dietary want, they may convey a chef out to help you with any questions that you just might need. On our go to, I needed to see if the sausage served at breakfast was additionally a gluten free choice because it was not listed on the allergy-friendly menu.

Sadly, as I realized from Chef Quan, the sausage has a cross-contamination situation, as it’s grilled on the identical floor because the gluten-filled pita bread. The Brilliant Suns Youngling Breakfast doesn’t comprise sausage. So, that defined why the grownup model of the breakfast platter was not a gluten free choice however that the Youngling model was.

On one other apart, when you have celiac illness, I might not order the Rising Moons In a single day Oats which is listed as gluten free on the allergy-friendly menu. The restaurant doesn’t presently use licensed gluten free oats or purity protocol oats (the most secure oats for anybody with celiac illness). And, there’s a excessive threat of cross-contamination as a result of processing of the oats. This was positively a bummer to see it listed as a secure choice as a result of conventional oats aren’t thought-about secure for anybody with celiac illness or a wheat allergy.

As a result of my solely actual choice was the Brilliant Suns Youngling Breakfast, that’s what I ordered. This got here with a Three-Cheese Egg Chew, Purple Potatoes, and Recent Fruit. I’m not a giant fan of melon, so I requested if I may get further potatoes as a substitute, which Chef Quan was completely happy to do.

In case you can have dairy, it is a good little breakfast — although I’d in all probability simply get breakfast elsewhere with extra choices as a substitute. The egg chew was sous vide and was actually tasty. The purple potatoes had been additionally well-seasoned. All in all, not unhealthy. However, not wonderful.

With Brandon’s allergy symptoms, the chef additionally advisable that he order the Brilliant Suns Youngling Breakfast. This makes the Youngling Breakfast choice gluten free, fish/shellfish free, peanut free, and rooster & turkey free. Sadly, there’s a cross-contamination situation for company with nut allergy symptoms with the Mustafarian Lava Roll.

Brandon did get fruit together with his entree, and he mentioned total the entree was superb. I feel we each usually favored it however neither one in all us had been wowed.

Total

In the case of getting a fast service breakfast at Disney World, Docking Bay 7 wouldn’t be on the prime of my checklist. I might eat the Brilliant Suns Youngling Breakfast entree once more, however provided that we had been strapped for time or I actually wanted one thing to eat. There are quite a bit higher fast service choices on the Disney World resorts that may accommodate and offers company a bigger number of dishes to select from. Whereas we had been actually appreciative that the chef took the time to speak to us and tried to accommodate as finest he may, the restricted menu choices make it a location we’ll skip for breakfast on most events.
