I’m actually surprised it took this long to be quite honest. After less than 2 weeks in operation, the infamous sporks have now been removed from Docking Bay 7 in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
This picture below which was taken yesterday, September 10, 2019, shows that forks are now being offered for use with meals at Docking Bay 7 instead of the sporks:
Instead, here is a picture form the opening of Galaxy’s Edge on August 29, 2019. Sporks served with everything:
Honestly after sporks were being stolen at the Disneyland version of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge and re-sold on eBay for ridiculously high prices, we weren’t even expecting them to appear in the Hollywood Studios version of Galaxy’s Edge. It seems though now that their time is up and the same problem of theft has reared its head in this version of Docking Bay 7 too.
Right now you can see original Disneyland sporks from Docking Bay 7 are being listed on eBay for $180:
With a markup like that you can see why people are stealing these and why Disney had to shut it down.
It’s a shame things like this have to happen and people have to go so far as stealing silverware, therefore ruining part of the experience for others, but this is the cash-grab society we are living in unfortunately.
We’ll continue to monitor the story and see if the sporks ever make their return to Galaxy’s Edge in the future. At this point it doesn’t look likely…
I want to know what you think about the sporks being removed from Galaxy’s Edge…
- What else can Disney do about this problem?
- Do you want to see the sporks return?
