I realized we have never provided much information on the must-do Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge watering hole Oga’s Cantina.
I’ll be honest: I was a little underwhelmed when I first attended Oga’s Cantina. Not that it isn’t good fun, but perhaps I was expecting a more alien encounter. There are limits to Walt Disney World Imagineering, and perhaps expecting Obi Wan to slice Ponda Baba’s arm off in the middle of Florida was a bit too optimistic.
Advanced Reservations are highly recommended for Oga’s Cantina, although it isn’t quite as tricky to snag an on-the-day booking as it was a year or two back. However, if you definitely want to visit, you should book as close to the 60-day reservation window as possible. A credit card is required to book, and there is a $10 charge for a no-show.
Reservations are limited to 45 minutes and a maximum of two drinks per person. However, we have never tried to see how strictly this is enforced and have noticed some parties present on our arrival and still present when we leave.
Oga’s Cantina is certainly lively, and your DJ, R-3X, a former Starspeeder 3000 pilot, spins the tunes, including some familiar tunes. In addition, a host of the galaxy’s favorite tunes, which you may not have heard before, are also played. You will sing along to some of these new tunes before leaving.
The bartenders are the stars of the show, and their entertaining jokes, dancing, and banter are great fun.
The venue is kid-friendly, and there are both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available. There are also some small bar snacks served. Beverages are very creative, and many come with special effects. I recommend skipping the Bloody Rancor as it was a “bit Rank.”
Overall, we really like Oga’s Cantina and do visit regularly when in Hollywood Studios. It perhaps isn’t quite as exciting as I expected, but if you have not visited, I wouldn’t miss it.
