Ahead of Disney Wish’s maiden voyage on July 14, I had the chance to visit the brand-new space during the cruise’s christening celebration. Though it’s a place for sci-fi fans and non-fans alike to enjoy, superfans will appreciate the easter eggs hidden throughout the Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge.

Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge Design & Layout

Though you may be more familiar with the Mos Eisley Cantina, visited by fan faves in Star Wars: A New Hope and The Mandalorian, the design and layout of the Hyperspace Lounge were inspired by Solo: A Star Wars Story. Think less dimly-lit tavern and more modern luxury. Don’t worry, the drinks are just as strong.

Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge Creatures

Around the space, you’ll also find a handful of encased props from various parts of Star Wars lore. One particular favorite of Disney Imagineers is the hawk-bat near the entrance of the lounge, which true fans will know is a creature from Coruscant.

Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge Rebel Symbols

If you ever find yourself aboard the vessel, do yourself a favor and order a Mustafar (aka Berken’s Flow), named after the red Outer Rim planet. Not only does it taste like paradise (coconut, RumChata, chocolate, and coconut water), but it’s also one of the few drinks that may hold a secret message from the rebels.

Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge Baby Yoda Mocktail

For $7, you can get a delicious, zero-proof drink, dubbed the Temple Twist, that’s a gift for your mouth and your eyes. It’s made with apple mint, pineapple, ginger beer, and kiwi, and looks like everyone’s fave character from the SW universe: Grogu (aka Baby Yoda or The Child). If you look closely, you’ll notice the “frog eggs” near the “Grogu” head, referencing that controversial Mandalorian scene in which The Child ate the Frog Lady’s eggs.

Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge $5,000 Cocktail

At the very bottom of the menu, you’ll see a beverage called the Kaiburr Crystal, which goes for a whopping $5K. It’s served in a cylindrical container called a camtono, which you can see in both Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and The Mandalorian.
