No more Star Wars at the Backlot Express in Disney's Hollywood Studios

The Backlot Express at Disney's Hollywood Studios is returning to a more on-theme menu line-up this month, with the removal of the Star Wars themed items.

The Royal Guard Burger is now named the Backlot Burger, and the Galactic Salad with Chicken becomes the Southwest Salad with Chicken.

In recent years, Backlot Express became home to Star Wars food due to its location next to Star Tours, but with the arrival of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge later this year, Disney appears to be returning the restaurant back to sorting closer to its original story.

Hmmm, funny how sometimes the change of the name of can change the taste of the item too ....

So, the former Southwest salad with chicken that was changed to Galactic salad with chicken (and reduced in size by half) will now be referred to as Southwest salad with chicken. Again. Ok, but don't change anything else. Unless they want to make the salad bigger again.

As long as they keep backlot express open and keep the theming inside- I’m cool with it Will still enjoy the royal guard burger as the backlot burger just fine

Absolutely. Once SWGE opens, all bets are off.

They'll be needing every single one. Plus.

Not unexpected. But one thing DHS isn't short on is places to eat, generally speaking.

Maybe we'll some some improvement in the menu once Galaxy's Edge opens. Try to keep at least some guests eating on that side of the park.

In celebration of ABC-Disney's show Black-ish no doubt ;) I'm happy that they are changing back to normal-ish fare with appropriate naming. IMHO the chicken strips and waffles were a miss.
