A Guide to Disney Jollywood Nights

Jollywood Nights Lanyard and Map Christmastime at Walt Disney World is my favorite season to visit the theme parks! You'll find Christmas decorations throughout the parks and resorts, holiday snacks and music to really get you in the mood for the holidays.

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.

Backlot Express Review

On a recent trip to Disney's Hollywood Studios, I found myself at Backlot Express for lunch. I was with my brother, who is a bit of a picky eater, and Backlot Express hit the spot for us with chicken tenders and fries. Backlot Express  Backlot Express is located just past the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! show, on the way to Star Tours. It's kind of tucked away, but not at all hard to find. There is indoor seating, outdoor seating and outdoor covered seating that was warm but manageable on the day we visited. We went right at noon so it was crowded but we were lucky to find a seat inside, right by the drink fountain. The line on this particular day was stretched out the door and winding through the seating area, so I thought mobile ordering might be a good idea. It turns out I was right! After placing the order, which was very easy, our food was ready in less than 5 minutes--definitely the way to go! Mobile Order Pick-up Covered outdoor seating As I said, we

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo

To fully immerse yourself in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you must stop by Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. Careful as you may run into some who don’t want to allow passage into the Docking Bay! Once safely inside, you are surrounded by travelers from all over the galaxy! We dined on Endorian Fried Chicken and Batuuan Beef Pot Roast. The Tip Yip was everyone’s favorite! We opted for the children’s meal since we were not sure if our 5 year old traveler would enjoy these worldly offerings. He did...and nearly ate it all himself! I guess battling the dark side will do that to a young padawan! For dessert, we had the Batuu-Bon which was also a favorite! The specialty drink options change seasonally! You never know what surprises you will get when you are exploring this part of the galaxy!
