Oga's Cantina at Walt Disney World


Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has been extremely popular at Walt Disney World since it opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios in 2019.  One of our favorite spots in this new area is Oga's Cantina, a very popular lounge where you can get all kinds of fun drinks and take in the atmosphere of Batuu's hot spot.

Space inside Oga's is limited so advance reservations are highly recommend and can be made up to 60 days in advance. Even with an advance reservation, be prepared to wait in line outside a bit before being let in. Oga's Cantina is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and reservations are recommended for all meal periods.

The small location offers a wide variety of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails that are out of this world.  They also offer a very limited selection of bar bites.  The snacks aren't enough for a meal but they are a tasty option if you need something to eat while you enjoy your cocktails.
Batuu Bits: Crispy Galaxy Snack Bits with Spiced Dip
There are also souvenir mugs available that are definitely adorable but they will be a hit to the wallet if you want to purchase them with their respective drinks.  If you ask the Cast Member, you may be able to order the drink without actually purchasing the souvenir mug.  It's worth asking if you want to try the drink but you don't want the souvenir mug.

and Passion Fruit served in a Souvenir Endor Mug
If you are a smaller party, be prepared to be seated with other parties at a table or standing with other parties at a high top table.  With limited space, no seat goes empty here for long.  In fact, most of the Cantina is standing room only at high top tables or the bar.  There are a few booths in the lounge so if you really want to sit, you can request to wait for a table but know that it's not guaranteed and you may have a longer wait.  It definitely gives it that "space bar" type vibe.  Due to the location's popularity, your visit to Oga's is limited to 45 minutes per party.
I've tried numerous cocktails at Oga's over the years and there are definitely some drinks that stand out more than others. My absolute favorite is the Jedi Mind Trick.  I order this drink time and time again and it never disappoints.  Another fun drink is the Fuzzy Tauntaun. It's not my favorite on the menu but it's a must try for the unique 'Buzz Button Tingling' foam.
Jedi Mind Trick, Blue Bantha and Jabba Juice
Fuzzy Tauntaun: Ketel One Botanical Peach & Orange Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps Liqueur,
Orange Juice with Tangerine, Pure Cane Sugar, and 'Buzz Button Tingling' Foam
The drinks at Oga's have so many fun names that it can be hard to choose!  There's the Bloody Rancor, T-16 Skyhopper, and the Bespin Fizz to name a few.  I recommend trying a few drinks (with and without alcohol) on your visit to find your favorite. 
Bespin Fizz: Bacardi Superior Rum, Yuzu Puree, Pomegranate Juice,
White Cranberry Juice, and a Cloud Swirl
Bloody Rancor: Tito's Handmade Vodka, Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur,
Spicy Bloody Mary Mix, Rancor Bone
T-16 Skyhopper: Tito's Handmade Vodka,
Bols Melon Liqueur, Kiwi, and Half and Half
One of my favorite parts of visiting Oga's Cantina is the atmosphere.  The details inside are amazing and really make you feel like you've traveled to another galaxy.  The staff really bring the theme home with their customer interactions.  While you enjoy your drinks, you can also enjoy some stellar beats from droid DJ R-3X.  You may recognize him as a former Starspeeder 3000 pilot.

Jabba Juice: Simply Orange with Pineapple, Kiwi, Cantaloupe, and Blueberry Popping Pearls

Blurrgfire: Odwalla Lemonade, Pomegranate Juice, and Habanero-Lime
If you're looking for a great atmosphere, fun drinks and out of this world tunes, I highly recommend visiting Oga's Cantina on your next Walt Disney World vacation!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Bigfire Restaurant Review

Bigfire is, in my opinion, a great addition to Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort. Having been a huge fan of Emeril's which was previously in this location, I was skeptic, but quickly put at ease once we were inside and met our server and have been back several times since. After a full day in the parks, we had a pretty late dinner on the agenda so we started in the lounge attached to the restaurant.  The cocktail selection is quite extensive, with bourbon drinks being the star here. My Manhattan was delicious and set the tone for a great meal ahead! The bar is also a great stop if you don't have a reservation, I found the bartenders friendly, attentive, and making great drinks! The open kitchen is a great feature as you enter the dining room.  The d├ęcor is modern yet cozy with touches of plaid throughout.  The highlight is of course the "big fire", where they wood smoke a variety of meats for the entrees. We started the meal with some wine a
