Oga’s Cantina in Galaxy’s Edge
Oga’s Cantina in Galaxy’s Edge is a lively watering hole on Batuu. My family visited about a month ago and we are going to give you all of our family’s favorites.
I’ll start first with the details of making a reservation. We made both a “lunch” and “breakfast” reservation. I put these meals in quotes as there is not much in the way of food items on the menu. There are a few snack type items but not much that would constitute a full meal. I would highly recommend making an advanced reservation. Each time we have visited there has been quite a line to enter the cantina.
Information to note:
You may or may not be seated at a table. The establishment is standing only except for some booths that line the walls of the cantina. Once you have been placed at your table, you may not relocate if an actual seat opens up for example. There is room to stand at the bar, and high top tables to stand at as well. You will also be “seated” with other parties unless you have a very large party. On our first visit, we were “seated” at a high top table. My kids had to be on their tiptoes to reach the food on the bar. Our second visit had us seated at a table with two other parties. It was fun to chat and have a drink with other Star Wars fans!
You may order two items per person and stay for approximately 45 minutes. Phew! Now that business is out of the way.
There is a very limited menu of food for all meals. Don’t come here expecting to actually eat lunch. Lunch had a few snacks. My kids ordered Oga’s obsession. This dish can be made with or without alcohol. It is a jello based dish with boba balls, pop rocks and I think cotton candy. My kids split it and ate it up!
At breakfast, we all split the mustifirian lava roll. This was basically a galactic version of a cinnamon roll. It was not coated in icing, but still very delicious.
Update: January 2020: We returned to this galactic watering hole to introduce it to my parents. We tried some more food this time around. Happabore Sampler, a charcuterie board from another galaxy. This plate made for sharing is $21 and in my opinion totally not worth it. It consisted of Spam ( you read that right), spicy sausage, a few crackers, and string cheese. The entire board was also drizzled in a sauce that had sesame in it. My son has a sesame allergy so he was unable to eat it. Just like I told my husband, always, always triple check the allergy.
You may be craving a snack since some of the drinks here can be quite strong. We also tried the Batuu Bits, at $11 they were a bit better. This is basically a variety of chips. They come with a very spicy dipping sauce and also contain sesame.
The drinks here are not inexpensive. But then again it is Disney, right? We really enjoyed the atmosphere and experience. That being said I think its worth it at least once. I’ll give you a rundown of the drinks we tried.
Drinks without Alcohol
The boys tried several drinks. The carbon freeze was a big hit due to the bubbly nature of the drink. Dry ice at the bottom of the cup sends the boba balls dancing all over the glass. They also tried the Jabba Juice and the Hyperdrive Punch. They felt the Jabba Juice was the best drink. I think the carbon freeze was the best bang for your buck in terms of taste and entertainment,
Drinks with Alcohol
I tried the Spiran Caf which is basically a coffee cocktail. It was good coffee and very strong ( 151) liquor. It came with a glob of orange marmalade in the bottom. It gave the coffee nice flavor but was sort of unappealing in the bottom of the glass. I did not pay close enough attention when I ordered it. Oops. Of all the drinks we had, I would likely not order this one again. I would recommend a regular coffee.
The Fuzzy Tauntaun is fun to order and fun to drink. It does have a good flavor and some numbing foam on the top. The foam will leave your lips and tongue with a numbing sensation. This is basically a fuzzy navel type drink.
The Jedi Mind trick was appealing to be due to the blue color! It was sweet but not my favorite drink in the cantina.
The Outer Rim ( not to be confused with the off-planet bar at the Contemporary resort) was fun and tasty. It is probably most related to a margarita with some flair. This may be our favorite drink in Oga’s Cantina.
The Yub Nub. I really enjoyed this drink but I ordered it without the souvenir mug. I think they were running out of the mugs and it was served in a regular cup. It is a sort of tiki-style drink with pineapple juice and rum. The drink is pretty reasonable the mug puts it at a whopping $42 dollars.
The music and atmosphere are worth the visit. Try to check out what is happening around the bar area. DJ Rex is spinning some tunes. He can’t leave though.. restraining bolt. If you want to you can ask your Alexa enabled speaker to play music from the cantina and rock out at home.

I love Disney! I have been to the one in California multiple times! I can’t wait to see the Star Wars section
Are you a big fan of Star Wars?
I enjoyed Oga’s Cantina! I felt like I was in the movie and the drinks were good.
Me too! So immersive
Thank you for writing this! We are planning a Disney trip soon! It will come in handy especially since the place has a time limit.
Thanks for reading!
Thanks for sharing this blog, it’s so nice to hear more about Disney, I will definitely try to visit next year.
I cannot wait to check this place out myself! Great review!
Can’t wait to hear what you think

The alcoholic drinks look so creative! It’s good to know that there are some great adult options here!

We really thought it was a fun spot to visit.
I have never been to Disneyland or DisneyWorld! Living in the middle of the country, both are quite far away. The drinks look like they would be fun to try! Especially the Carbon Freeze!
We are lucky to live close to Orlando. The carbon freeze may have been our favorite
We’ve been wanting to visit Galaxy’s Edge since it opened. I’m hoping to take the family early next year!
That will be a great time to go to WDW. All the rides in the land should be open then!
I think taking the family to Galaxy’s Edge would be a fun experience. I know they’ll have such a blast!
My kids are obsessed so they loved it!

This looks so cool! I’ve never been to Disney but I would love to go. And my hubby is a huge Star Wars fan. He’d be pretty excited to see this! Thanks for sharing 🙂
I think any Star Wars fan would get a kick out of this!
Aw looks like you and your family had such a lovely time together. I love the fact that they do drinks that are fun without the alcohol too xx
Great choices if you just want a non-alcoholic drink!
Galaxy’s Edge is VERY high on my list of places to take the family. We haven’t been there yet, but we are HUGE Star Wars fans and just as huge Disney Fans. It’s going to be great!
I love how the cocoktails glow and are neon colours! This looks like a cool place to visit, my brother would love it here!
The table colors also change along with the music
Wow! My best friend would be all over this I bet. If I drank I bet it’d be fun!
They have great non-alcoholic options too. The atmosphere is great either way!
My husband and I want to take our son there when he is old enough! We are huge Star Wars fans! We want to try out the build a droid or lightsaber! I also think it would be awesome to try some blue milk!
We tried the blue milk outside at the milk stand the kids loved it!

Oh Oh Oh….there’s a problem already, Jen! The food menu is limited….that’s a problem to me since I love my food A WHOLE LOT!!!!
Wow, it seems that you guys had had a pleasant time together. Love the place and its ambience.
We really enjoyed the land!
Oga’s Cantina sounds great! I’d love to try those drinks!
I think it’s wonderful experiencing this in real life. Definitely good for people of all ages. I must try and visit soon.
Have not heard of this but how very creative. There’s a Star Wars themed adult party cruise near me and I wonder if they will be this creative with their drinks!
Interesting! It was a fun spot. Very well themed
this might be a great place to unwind. if i live closer, id probably bring my other half for an adult drink and talk about anything. 🙂 thank you for sharing!

This surely looks like a lovely place to unwind with someone close and spend hours together trying out the wonderful drink options. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for reading!
I want to try the food and alcohol at Oga’s Cantina in Galaxy’s Edge. It seems like a pretty place to dine at.
No too much in the way of food… but lots of drinks!
We have to make sure we try Oga’s Cantina at Galaxy’s Edge. Those drinks look so good. I will take your recommendation and try Outer Rim first.
I can’t wait to try these! The Yub Nub looks so good 🙂
It was very good!
I think that Disney made the casual atmosphere of Oga’s as a great alternative to other dining locations. The theming is great and I really like that it’s so laidback
Great point! It’s perfect to just drop in… if you are able
I too went there recently and was disappointed. Although the atmosphere was very unique and entertaining, I did find it disappointing. We went for breakfast and had to stand. As we all know you appreciate a chance to sit when visiting Disney. We ordered the only two things on the breakfast menu and they both were terrible. They even gave us our money back. I understand they want to be different but taste is always something worth having as well as a great atmosphere. I would not go again.
I think you make some great points. It’s not a place that you can except to get a seat… important to note. I also agree that breakfast is not as exciting as lunch or dinner time.
I’m really looking forward to going when we’er there in sept! Though based on reviews and menu (and allergies) I expect we’ll only get drinks
It’s a great spot to grab a drink… the food is just ok!
