Oga’s Cantina is the place to be inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge


Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is serving up some of Disney’s best drinks in one of the most immersive settings we’ve ever been in, Oga’s Cantina.

Unless you’ve been taking a major social media break, and let’s be honest we all need one sometimes, you’ve probably read something about the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park on May 31. Along with the opening of the 14 acre, hyper-immersive land Disneyland served it’s first alcoholic drink to guests inside the park.

Oga’s Cantina is the hot spot to be inside Black Spire Outpost. The small bar has had hours long waits to get inside and we definitely understand why.

The menu is diverse and super creative with drinks to please just about every type of being that walks in. Once inside you are taken to either a standing room only bar or table top or one of only a few sit down tables.

There are two different menus at Oga’s Cantina, a breakfast and a lounge menu. You can order off of the lounge menu at any time but the breakfast menu is only available until 10:30 a.m.

While we were inside Oga’s Cantina there was a drink and time limit of two drinks in 45 minutes per person, so we didn’t get to try everything but what we did try were some of the best Disney drinks we’ve ever had.

Guests will discover innovative and creative concoctions from around the galaxy at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

We were lucky to get a spot at the standing bar where we could watch some of the critters and creatures Oga has collected through the years. All of the creatures in the many glass boxes have some sort of movement to them bringing even more to the already spectacular Cantina.

On our first visit inside Oga’s Cantina we ordered the Fuzzy Tauntaun ($15) and the Outer Rim ($16). The Fuzzy Tauntaun is made with Cîroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, and Simply Orange® topped with Tangerine, Pure Cane Sugar, “Buzzz” Foam. The foam on top will make your lips and mouth a little numb which is kind of fun and unique for a drink.

The Outer Rim is concocted with Patrón Silver Tequila, Cedilla Açaí Liqueur, Lime Juice, and Pure Cane Sugar topped with Black Salt and Exotic Fruit Purée. Both of the drinks were phenomenal but the Outer Rim might just be the best alcoholic drink at a Disney Park right now and we highly recommend trying it if you’re planning on going to Oga’s Cantina.

When guests visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, they’ll be able to enjoy Oga’s Cantina – a local watering hole to unwind, conduct business and maybe even encounter a friend or a foe. Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using “otherworldly” methods, served in unique vessels, with choices for guests of all ages.

If you remember riding Star Tours when the droid Rex was the pilot you’ll be happy to know he’s now the coolest DJ in the galaxy at Oga’s Cantina. You’ll hear him talking about his Star Tours days and even reciting lines from the attraction while in the DJ booth.

Overall, Oga’s Cantina is a must if you’re going into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The atmosphere is perfectly Star Wars with a cool club feel, the drinks are strong and always flowing, and the entertainment cannot be beat. Be sure to get your name on the reservation list right when you get in to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for the least wait possible, and during your waiting time explore the land.
