What is Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo?
Oga’s Cantina may be the centerpiece culinary experience of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, especially when it comes to the libation side of dining, but Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is the heart of the theme-park land’s food options: this fast-casual location will enable you to make a quick selection of exotic food and drink and then choose to eat it either inside the building (in a hangar bay) or outside, in a shaded courtyard that’s “surrounded by the crumbling walls of the old marketplace.”
Look for Docking Bay 7 right in the center of Black Spire Outpost. It’s hard to miss, thanks to its telltale delivery shuttle parked up top (more about which in just a moment).

Reservations at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Given the restaurant’s counter-service nature, we find it extremely difficult to believe that Disney will institute reservations here. We’ll need to confirm once everything is up and running before we can say for sure, of course.
Theming at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Whereas Oga’s Cantina revolves around a brand-new character (that would be Oga Garra, naturally), Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo cleverly utilizes a pre-existent character from the Star Wars mythology (albeit one barely established in the multimedia canon): Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs was originally introduced in Episode VII: The Force Awakens, as the head chef of Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana, who then went on to star in his own short story (called “A Recipe for Death,” which was part of the Tales from a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens, Vol. I anthology). Disney has taken the distinctive-looking alien and given him something of a destiny after the First Order assaulted and then destroyed Maz’s longstanding castle, establishing that he has since acquired his own modified Sienar-Chall Utilipede Transport and now routinely plies the galaxy, looking for “exotic flavors and unusual dishes.” That starship has now been turned into the Star Wars equivalent of a food truck, called Tuggs’s Grub, and it just so happened to pull into Docking Bay 7, where food freighters constantly come and go with fresh wares, upon the day of your arrival on Batuu.
This “traveling diner for diners traveling” serves new and unusual dishes that use a wide variety of unique ingredients and that are inspired by Cookie’s tenure as Maz’s chef. Not only has Tuggs’s Grub just landed on the roof of the hangar bay, it’s also still in the process of lowering its food crates into Docking Bay 7 when you set foot inside the large, open space to place your order. Other cargo pods already lay scattered throughout the room, some of which brandish provisions and equipment both for and from all the other vessels that are constantly in and out throughout the day; one cargo container, for example, belongs to a fishmonger, who uses a mini-carbonite freezing machine (that regularly shoots out steam) to keep his wares fresh, while another has been transformed into an alien distillery and a third, a fruit vendor. What’s interesting about all these different pods is that they double as dining areas, replete with barrels and crates that serve as chairs. (Don’t care to eat either here, among the Black Spire merchants, or outside in the courtyard? Not to worry – there’s a small storage room that also boasts some tables.)
Speaking of the hustling and bustling nature of the dock, there’s one last important thing to mention regarding Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo: its future. Disney has already hinted that new dishes and drinks can regularly be phased either in or out, using the fleet of cargo ships as the perfect bit of narrative justification for the ever-changing menu. In this way, Oga’s Cantina may regularly get the most attention from casual fans, but Docking Bay 7 may end up being the apple of the regular visitor’s eye.
Mobile order at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Guests will be able to place an order at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo using the Play Disney Parks app on their smart phones (but only if they’re actually in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – something which their phone’s GPS will attest to). Once the food is ready, patrons will be able to skip the main line and head straight to the mobile order pick-up window.

OI fun fact #1
The three trailer-sized cargo pods that Strono Tuggs is off-loading from his multi-purpose transport into the hangar bay contain three interesting Easter eggs: the first is stamped with the number 77, the second one (which is dangling from cables through the roof’s opened portal) is marked 80, and the last one (which is still aboard Tuggs’s Grub) is branded 83. These are the years that the films of the original Star Wars trilogy came out.
OI fun fact #2
One of the primary sources of inspiration for Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is Tokyo’s legendary Tsukiji Fish Market, which was the largest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world until it closed at the end of 2018. Disney’s Imagineers have spoken of the “celebratory chaos” and “aged rawness” of Tsukiji, qualities which translate more than well to the Star Wars milieu.
