One of the most anticipated areas of the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is Oga’s Cantina. This Batuuan watering hole is the first public location inside Disneyland Park to serve alcohol, which makes Oga’s Cantina drinks a worthy destination in their own right.
In fact, Oga’s Cantina was so extremely popular during the first two days of operation the line had to be closed off multiple times throughout the day, which caused guests to linger in the area, waiting for the signal that the line was open again. The result was crowded walkways and frustrated guests as everyone stampeded into the line.
Now, Oga’s Cantina is utilizing a text-based reservation system similar to Lamplight Lounge. Once you enter the land for your reservation period, go to Oga’s and queue up to try to get your name on the waiting list. Provide your name and phone number (excuse me, data pad number), and you’ll receive a text when Oga’s is ready for you to return. But you have to be quick – return times for the entire four hour period fill up within 15-20 minutes of a new reservation window opening.
I was lucky enough to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on opening weekend and between everyone in our group, I was able to try nearly every cocktail concoction on the menu at Oga’s.
Here are my favorite Oga’s Cantina Drinks Ranked from Best to Worst!
- The Outer Rim: Silver tequila, acai liqueur, lime juice, pure cane sugar, black salt and exotic fruit purée
- Jedi Mind Trick: Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit & Rose Vodka, John D. Taylor’s Velvet Falernum, Bols Blue Curaçao, White Grape Juice, Lime Juice, and Grapefruit Bitters
- Bespin Fizz: Rum, yuzu purée, pomegranate juice, white cranberry juice, and cloud swirl
- T-16 Skyhopper: Vodka, melon liqueur, kiwi and half and half
- Fuzzy Tauntaun: Cîroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, and Simply Orange® topped with Tangerine, Pure Cane Sugar, “Buzzz” Foam
- Dagobah Slug Slinger: Herradura Reposado Tequila, Bols Blue Curaçao, Citrus Juices, Ginger, Herbs, and Bitters
- Yub Nub: Malibu Pineapple Rum, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Citrus Juices, and Passion Fruit (available with souvenir mug, while supplies last)
- Jet Juice: Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, Cedilla Açaí Liqueur, White Grape Juice, and Lemon Juice
– Number 1 with a bullet for me was The Outer Rim cocktail! I love margaritas and out of the two tequila drinks, this one hit all the right buttons for me.
– After margaritas, I enjoy vodka drinks. Not only is the Jedi Mind Trick very tasty, but in my opinion it’s the strongest drink on the menu.
– The Bespin Fizz is a fun drink AND it’s tasty! This drink is made with dry ice so it arrives bubbly. So bubbly you can feel your glass vibrating. Once the vibration wears off, you’re left with a strong drink similar to hurricane, but more tart than sweet.
– Probably the most tropical tasting drink of the bunch. The melon taste is very strong, and the cream makes it a heavy drink. This is one you’ll want to sip for a bit.
– Based on Instagram Stories I’ve watched, this is one of the most popular drinks at the cantina. It’s definitely tasty and very sweet, but watch out for that Buzzz Foam. It will leave your lips and tongue tingly, like you just ate a bunch of Pop Rocks.
– This tequila based drink just didn’t cut it for me. The ginger is a bit overpowering and I’m not sure I like the combo of ginger, tequila, and bitters. But if The Outer Rim sounds too sweet for you, this one might be up your alley.
Toniray Wine and Yub Nub
– I hate to rank this one close to last due to it’s adorable Endor tiki style mug, but it’s just … not good. Like a bland Mai Tai. Be aware this drink is often the first to run out due to the mug’s popularity. You can still purchase the mug (if available) for the same price, but sans drink.
– I’m ranking this one last because I don’t drink bourbon (bourbon is made from corn AND barley, and I have an intolerance to both). I sniffed it and it sure smelled strong. But, even the bourbon lover in our group didn’t rank this among their favorites.
I don’t drink beer (again – barley intolerance), but I tried the cider and one of the wines.
- Spice Runner Hard Cider
- Toniray Wine
– Listed as Angry Orchard, this cider definitely has a strong spice taste. I really enjoyed it and can see myself ordering this one again and again.
– This teal wine was popular on Alderaan before … you know. I was excited to drink this one but I was a little let down. The wine had a bit of a sharp floral taste that I wasn’t into.
A lot of people have asked me if Oga’s Cantina is worth the hassle and the wait. I say, yes! It’s certainly a novelty to have an alcoholic drink inside Disneyland. Don’t expect the drinks to be craft cocktail quality – they are premixed and served out of kegs – but most of them are tasty and unique. Also, the inside of the Cantina is really cool. DJ R3X plays some good galactic jams (and one tune you’ll likely recognize), and the detail around the bar is fun to study. Keep an eye on those creatures above the taps! You never know what might happen.
