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.
