On our recent trip to Disney World, we visited the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios. The entire land itself is amazing! I truly felt like we had stepped off the planet earth and went straight into a Star Wars movie. While I enjoyed the entire experience, I have to say my favorite part was our visit to Oga’s Cantina. Check out our Review: Oga’s Cantina and see why we loved the experience!
Review: Oga’s Cantina
Oga’s Cantina is a great place to refuel and take a break from the Florida heat. The atmosphere is so much fun with the bar area being interactive with lights, sounds and moving creatures. The music is upbeat and I loved the DJ! He is totally out of this world! I have to say as a robot, DJ knows how to keep the party going. The cast members outfits were right on cue. They truly looked like they stepped right out of the movie. In all my years of visiting Disney World, I have to say that I personally think the Star Wars cast member costumes are the best ones I have seen so far. The Cast Members are also very interactive with guests by singing along and pumping up the crowd during certain songs. So much fun!
Drinks And Snacks
Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are available at Oga’s Cantina. During our visit, we tried a couple of the non-alcoholic drinks. I had the Cliff Dweller, which consisted of citrus juices, coconut, hibiscus-grenadine & Seagram’s ginger ale and little crunchy ice which I personally love. I really enjoyed this one and can’t wait to have it again. My husband tried the Hyperdrive (punch it) and this one was made with Powerade mountain berry blast, white cranberry juice, black cherry puree and sprite. I took a sip of his and it was OK, but I am not a big Powerade fan and you could really taste it in this one.
We did not try the snacks on our visit because I have a gluten allergy. The offerings they had available were not gluten friendly at this time. The Cantina only has small snack options. The Disney Dining Plan is not accepted at Oga’s Cantina so if you are planning to experience this amazing location and you are on a dining plan, be prepared to use a different payment method here. Reservations are also highly recommended but they will accept walk ups. However, there is no guarantee you will get in and you could possibly stand in line for a long time just waiting to see. So, make sure to plan and reserve your time before you go by checking My Disney Experience website or app.
Here are the snack options available:
- Breakfast: Rising Moons Overnight Oats-Oats, Dragon Fruit, Yogurt, and Seasonal Fruit OR Mustafarian Lava Roll, a sweet galactic delight
- Lunch & Dinner: Batuu Bits Crispy Galaxy Snack Bits with Spiced Chermoula Dip
Traveling With Kids
Although we were traveling without kids, we did see many children inside Oga’s Cantina. This is a family friendly location and there are plenty of non-alcoholic choices for kids as well as apple juice and orange juice and small snack options. Keep in mind that this is a loud and high activity location. You may also be standing since seating is not guaranteed. If your little ones are sensitive to noise or get restless standing around this may be an experience to consider for date night or you may want to have some ear protection and a toy or tablet on hand for the kiddos.
Speaking Of Seating At Oga’s Cantina
One thing to keep in mind if you are planning to visit Oga’s Cantina is seating is limited. It is 90% standing room and you will be sharing your space with other travelers. Be prepared to make new friends! We had a standing spot at the end of the bar which was neat because we got to see all of the fun drinks being made right there in front of us. Because the Cantina is enclosed and has low lighting, they did ask for us to keep walking around to a minimum. They do allow you to walk around and explore to take photos, but we had to go one at a time while at least one person stayed at our reserved spot.
I really enjoyed the environment of Oga’s Cantina and we plan to visit this location again to try other drinks. Plus, the atmosphere is so great. We enjoyed chatting with the other travelers around us! If you are thinking about visiting Oga’s Cantina on your next adventure, make sure to get those reservations and keep these other handy tips in mind:
- Visits are limited to 45 minutes per party.
- You should check in no earlier than 15 minutes and your entire party must be present before you can enter.
- Have your identification handy if you are planning on purchasing alcoholic beverages.
- There is a maximum of 2 drinks per Guest.
