Review of Oga's Cantina at Star Wars Galaxy's Edge in Disney World

One of the most iconic scenes in the original Star Wars: A New Hope movie was in the Mos Eisley Cantina where Luke Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi met Han Solo, so it is no surprise that in the Disney World land dedicated to Star Wars called Galaxy's Edge there would need to be an iconic Cantina.

Only WDWorld set out to visit this new Cantina and explore the interesting sights and libations that could be found inside.  Join us for our review of Oga's Cantina located on Batuu.

Oga's Cantina - A Hard Place to Find

At Galaxy's Edge there are not a lot of signs that tourists can easily decipher to learn the whereabouts of the various shops, eateries, & establishments.  Unless you are fluent in Aurebesh you have to seek out your destinations.  Oga's Cantina is no different.  Like most popular Cantinas you follow the crowds to learn the location of this interesting place.

As you can see from the pictures above, unless you capture the moment that the word CANTINA is illuminated above the doorway it is not obvious that you have found the entrance to Oga's Cantina.

Oga's Cantina - The Out of this World Cantina You Were Searching For

it does not take long after you have entered Oga's Cantina to be swept into the reality that you have been transported into a galaxy far, far away.  This Cantina is incredibly well themed and can be enjoyed by patrons of all ages, not just the over 21 crowd.

The scenery is amazing, and you can easily spend much of your time here taking in all of the details that surround you, but don't.  This place was meant to be enjoyed, so make sure that you engage your neighbors and bartenders, listen to the somewhat familiar music played by DJ Rex, and above all have fun.

Oga's Cantina - The Menu: Something for Everyone

Although pricey there is truly something for everyone to enjoy on this menu, whether you enjoy out of this world cocktails, beers, wines, or specialty mocktails that allow the non-drinkers or under 21 crowd to not feel left out.  You can even try the famous blue milk here if you wish.

It wouldn't be a review if we dd not try some of the signature cocktails on the menu.  We tried over multiple visits: The Bespin Fizz, The Fuzzy Tauntaun, & The Jedi Mind Trick. We also grabbed photos of our neighbors YubNub and the Cliff Dweller. 

Here are our thoughts on the drinks:

  • Jedi Mind Trick - Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit & Rose Vodka, John P Taylor's Velvet Falernum, Bols Blue Curacao, White Grape Juice, Lime Juice, Grapefruit Bitters
    This is a tasty Blue colored drink, but without the theatrics of the others.
  • Fuzzy Tauntaun - Ciroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, Simply Orange with Tangerine, Pure Cane Sugar, "Buzz Button Tingling Foam"
    This drink looks impressive and the foam has a special kicker that will make an impression!
  • Bespin Fizz - Bacardi Superior Rum, Yuzu Puree, Pomegranate Juice, White Cranberry Juice, Cloud Swirl
    This is the winner!  Tastes great and puts on a show that photographs and videos well.
  • Yub Nub & Cliff Dweller  These drinks, one with alcohol and one without, are all about the take home souvenir cup.  Not cheap, but a lasting way t show your dedication to the Ewoks!

DJ Rex - The Disney World Blast From The Past

Your music at Oga's Cantina is bought to you by a familiar droid.  DJ Rex is none other than the former Star Tours Pilot Rex that many enjoyed on countless missions.  Here he plays a wide variety of music including some popular hits by Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes of Mos Eisley Cantina Fame.

Oga's Cantina Is A Disney World Must Do!

Oga's Cantina is not cheap!  But if you can get past the prices this is definitely a fun place to try.  You can substantially reduce the cost, but still have fun with the amazing non-alcoholic concoctions.  As a tip try the Carbon Freeze for a similar effect to our favorite alcoholic drink the Bespin Fizz.

Over all it is a great experience. If you plan to visit during busy times of the day you should book a reservation on the Disney Dining reservation system like you would for a Disney World Restaurant.

There is not much in the way of food or snacks so do not plan on this being your lunch or dinner, but it is definitely a fun, and highly recommended place to visit while at Galaxy's Edge.
