Oga’s Cantina – A Taste of the Galaxy

Share This!

Oga’s Cantina is an immersive, Star Wars-themed lounge in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

While this galactic watering hole claims to serve bounty hunters and smugglers, families and travelers are also welcome to drop in, refuel, and bop along to the tunes of DJ Rex!

Oga’s menu consists of small plates and both themed alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, all of which is served from park open to close.

Oga’s Cantina is small and a little dark but incredibly immersive with blaster holes in the walls, creatures in tanks, and IG-88 droid taps. There’s a few tables, but it’s mostly standing room only.

Guests who remember the original version of Star Tours may also recognize the inexperienced droid pilot Captain Rex who’s working as the cantina’s DJ.

Since Oga’s Cantina is as close as  Star Wars fans will ever get to living out their Mos Eisley dreams, coupled with the establishment’s Instagrammable qualities, the cantina can be a tough reservation to get right now at Walt Disney World. Those looking to visit should make reservations 60 days in advance. But if you’re already inside that reservation window, consider using the TouringPlans Reservation Finder! It may be your only hope.

Alcoholic Drinks

Oga's Cantina

Fuzzy Tauntaun – $16.00

One of the cantina’s most famous libations, the Fuzzy Tauntaun is the yellow drink topped with foam that’s famous for numbing your lips!

In our reviewer’s words, it makes your lips feel like the cinnamon lip plumping gloss that was popular years ago. (If you know, you know.)

Bespin Fizz – $18.00

Front and center is the appropriately pink Bespin Fizz because, after all, Bespin is Cloud City for you uncultured Star Wars novices. It’s very sweet, very delicious, and, of course, fizzy!

Other alcoholic drinks offered at Oga’s range from the tropical Yub Nub to the refined Outer Rim served with black salt and exotic fruit puree to the Dagobah Slug Slinger that includes herbs and bitters.

Non-Alcoholic Drinks

Despite the space pirate clientele, this family-friendly establishment also has an impressive selection of non-alcholic drinks too, including the Blue Bantha that comes topped with a Bantha-inspired cookie, the cold brew coffee-inspired Black Spire Brew, and the Carbon Freeze.

Carbon Freeze – $7.50

This yellow drink literally bubbles and “smokes!” It and was a lot of fun and also comes with flavored popping pearls!

Small Bites

Batuu Bits – $11.00

When off planet, why not eat like a local with this savory sampler?

Our reviewer LOVED the chermoula dip. And the bits were spicy, salty, sweet, and fantastic with drinks.

Happabore Sampler – $21.00

We had a bad feeling about this.

Is it the worst charcuterie on property? Or anywhere? In our reviewer’s words “even my child who eats everything wouldn’t have found anything more than a pork rind to enjoy.”

There was quite a bit of meat product, but none of it was that great. The pickled radish was probably the most interesting; but overall, we’re 100% skipping this forever.

A Bounty of Souvenirs

Many of the drinks are served in specialty mugs which you can purchase. But the best thing is, you don’t have to buy the mug to drink out them while at Oga’s!

What you can smuggle out of the cantina without forking over any credits are the cool, themed coasters!

Note: There’s a 45 minute time limit from when your server CM greets you. It isn’t strictly enforced, but they won’t allow you to go too much beyond due to social distancing and limited capacity.

Oga’s Cantina is an absolute must-see for Star Wars fans, but even those who aren’t as familiar with that galaxy far, far away will appreciate this truly unique establishment.

Most of our TouringPlans readers agree Oga’s Cantina has an 84% thumbs up rating!

    You guys might want to:
    (1) put the name of the guest author somewhere in this article, at least if the person would like to be recognized for their work. Did I miss it?
    (2) link to a menu that has been updated after October 2019, even if it is to the official Disney menu instead of the TP one. I appreciate the picture of the menu provided, but I can’t read it. It is interesting to note that the price of drinks have remained the same since October 2019 (with alcoholic drinks up about $1 each since original opening), but the Batuu Bits is up $3.

      Thanks for the feedback — the guest author wanted to submit the review anonymously, and so we respected their wishes on that. 🙂

      Looks like something in the queue got stuck — we’ve been trying to have the menu update go live around the same time as the review. I called out a bounty hunter on the menu server and gave it some “motivation” to show the right information about the foods available at Oga’s. Thanks for the catch!

        I see it’s been updated now. Hope that menu server learned its lesson.

    Anybody know any tricks to getting a reservation? We’ve been trying to no avail. We signed up through the Touring Plans reservation app. My daughter really wants a lip numbing drink 🙂 Any help will be appreciated.

      The way I did it was to wait for Disney to change their boilerplate hours to their final hours. A few days after they do this, there will be some additional reservations available. For instance, the hours for HWS went from opening at 10am to opening at 9am, and three days later around midnight there were reservations for 9am-10am available for a short time and I snagged one. I’m not normally one to brag about getting to drink heavily before 10am, but honestly it was a great experience. If you’re getting non-alcoholic drinks anyway, the early hour won’t matter much, and it was really nice to be one of the first people in the restaurant to boot. Good luck!
