I have dreamed of visiting one of the Galaxy’s famed cantinas, and Oga definitely brings this one to life for me! The cantina was a welcome rest stop from my weary travels on the outer rim! And I have lots of information to pass on!
Oga’s Cantina is a bar, and of course a bar at the edge of the galaxy would have some bold musical entertainment! R-3X, a former Starspeeder 3000 pilot, is your DJ here at Oga’s Cantina, and he is constantly mixing up some great beats! It is good to note that the music is loud and the room is dark as you would expect in any bar; so be mindful if anyone in your party wouldn’t like this type of venue.
Seating is mostly standing, with standing at the bar and around tables right in front of the bar. Along the wall with DJ R-3X, are booths that sit 6 to 8 people. You may be placed anywhere in the bar area, and you may be at a booth with visitors to Batuu that you do not know. If you are with a large party, you may need to be split up. I went to Oga’s several times during my stay and enjoyed sitting in a booth and standing.
You are limited to 45 minutes and 2 drinks per person. Since this is a bar, you must be 21 years of age to order and consume alcohol. But it is a family friendly bar, so you may have children anywhere in the bar area, and you may have to hold the kiddos if seating is not available.
Oga’s does offer a breakfast menu until 10:00 am, and then a lounge menu until closing.
For breakfast, you have galactic twists on oats and cinnamon rolls as well as alcoholic, non-alcoholic drinks and coffee/tea. I tried the Rising Moons Overnight Oats which contains oats, dragon fruit, yogurt and seasonal fruit, and I tried the Bloody Rancor which is a spicy spin to a Bloody Mary. Both were great! Since there is a two-drink allowance, I also tried the non-alcoholic Blue Bantha. This drink is a smoother, creamier version of the Blue Milk sold on the streets and is great for kids of all ages!
My bill for breakfast was $33.94 before tip.
Over the course of a week, I went back to Oga’s Cantina to try as many concoctions as I could! The Lounge Menu has 8 cocktails, 4 beers, 1 beer flight, 1 cider, and 2 wine options, and also includes provisions and a snack.
I took one for the team and tried all the cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks! For cocktails, I enjoyed the Fuzzy Tauntaun, Jedi Mind Trick, T-16 Skyhopper, The Outer Rim, Dagobah Slug Slinger, Bespin Fizz, Jet Juice and brought home the Yub Nub collector’s cup.
The most interesting was the Fuzzy Tauntaun! This drink literally makes your lips numb with the secret ingredient being a “Buzzz” foam! Definitely one you should try!
There will be something on the menu that seems familiar, and my favorites rang true with me. I liked the Outer Rim and the Dagobah Slug Slinger which are both tequila based!
Now, for the record, I didn’t always get the alcoholic versions; I did try all the non-alcoholic options! Lots of familiar things here, too, with Powerade, ginger ale, lemonade and punch. My favorite of these drinks was the Carbon Freeze because it has a great presentation! (no spoilers)
While the atmosphere and drinks are great, if you are hungry, this is not the place for lunch or dinner. Your only options are Provisions, which are a gelatin-based snack, and the crunchy snack mix called Batuu Bits. Of course, I tried both! My favorite was the crisp, sweet and spicy mix of the Batuu Bits. Reminder – these are small portions and will not fill you up!
My receipts for 2 drinks and a snack ranged from $41.48 to $72.19 before tip. Note: The drinks with collector’s cups, Cliff Dweller and Yub Nub, are $32 and $42, respectively.
The cost for visiting Oga’s Cantina could add up very quickly! But I really think you Must see it to really understand and experience the feel of an outpost Cantina!
One very important thing to remember is that Reservations are required at both Disneyland and WDW. At Disneyland you can make your reservation using the Disneyland App at 7am day of your visit. At WDW, you can make your reservations 180 days in advance. Be sure and arrive 15 minutes early to check-in. Your reservation time may not be the time that you are seated; you may still have to wait.
Will I come back on my next trip to Batuu? Of Course! And I can’t wait to try everything else I missed!
