Disneyland Changed Star Wars Menu Because No One Knew WTF They Were Ordering

Apparently, most people aren’t fluent in speaking nerd, so Disneyland decided to change a handful of their menu item names.

The new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land had an array of oddly named dishes that coincided with the fictional Batuu language.

While the names were fun to read, it could have taken you a minute or two to actually figure out what the dishes actually meant. Even Disney regulars here at the Foodbeast office admitted that the menu items were a little hard to decipher at first glance.

Our own Elie Ayrouth recalled his opening week experience and said that at the time, he couldn’t even order a Coke without the working cast members having an odd name for it. The language barrier got so bad that when Ayrouth was essentially asked if he had a season pass for a discount, he was completely befuddled and had to be saved by our nerdy video producer Costa Spyrou, who apparently spoke the odd Star Wars language a little too well.

At least most of the menu names will no longer be that big of a problem, as according to the OC Register, Disneyland has decided to change the names of the “Fried Endorian Tip-Yip,” the “Smoked Kaadu Ribs,” the “Mustafarian Lava Roll,” the “Outpost Mix,” and the “Yobshrimp Noodle Salad.”

Instead, they will now be known as the “Endorian Fried Chicken Tip-Yip,” the “Smoked Kaadu Pork Ribs,” the “Mustafarian Cinnamon Roll,” the “Outpost Popcorn Mix,” and the “Surabat Shrimp & Noodle Salad,” so that there is less confusion over what they are.

If you were to go to Disney World’s version of the Star Wars land, they didn’t even bother with the cute names, at the start. Their menu items consisted of regular ass names, such as Fried Chicken, Beef Pot Roast, and Roasted Chicken Salad. Zero confusion.

Whether you’re fluent in Batuuan or English, you might remember all guests shared a common language when it came to reselling stolen park items on eBay. The restaurants at Galaxy’s Edge keep making headlines for less than ideal reasons, but as they did with the rampant theft problem, the menu name difficulty has been dealt with accordingly.

Hopefully when you visit the park, you won’t have as tough a time ordering food.
