Of course a Star Wars-themed land has to have a cantina! A few weeks ago, Disney shared some details about Oga’s Cantina that will be coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, opening in 2019. Oga’s Cantina will be a “smugglers’ safe haven” in Black Spire Outpost, the village on the planet Bantuu where Galaxy’s Edge is set, run by alien proprietor, Oga Garra. While the cantina is the spot to go if you need to avoid the authorities, Oga does uphold a strict code of conduct. Although you never know what will happen or who you’ll see in Oga’s Cantina! You may even spot a familiar face or some stormtroopers.

Guests will be able to try the galactic concoctions made with “otherworldly methods” that the cantina is famous for. Oga’s Cantina will have something for everyone, including kid-friendly choices and some adult beverages. Yes, you read that right, Oga’s Cantina in Disneyland will be serving alcohol. This will be the first time alcohol will be sold publicly inside the Disneyland park. Guests are currently able to buy alcoholic beverages inside Disneyland’s sister park, Disney California Adventure and in Downtown Disney, but alcohol is not currently sold in Disneyland besides in Club 33, Disneyland’s exclusive, private club. Any alcohol bought inside Oga’s Cantina will be required to be consumed inside the cantina and not taken outside, which is a smart move. The cantina will feature a specialty menu with uniquely themed cocktails and beer and wine options.

We will also get to see the return an old friend in the cantina. RX-24, also known as Rex, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid we met in Star Tours, has a new gig as the resident DJ for Oga’s Cantina and will be providing musical entertainment! We’re excited to see this quirky, familiar face again!
Anything can happen in this cantina so be sure to check out its out-of-this-world offerings and musical entertainment when Oga’s Cantina opens its doors along with the rest of Galaxy’s Edge in 2019 in Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort!
