Oga’s Cantina holds a special place in my heart. Even before it was added to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge as a place for bounty hunters, smugglers, rogue traders, and weary travelers to connect it was the place of memories for my children. When they were younger, I created a Oga’s Cantina diorama set for them to play with from boxes, cardboard, Star Wars stickers, and scrapbook paper. We even used to have directions on Jersey Family Fun on how to do that. Given the chance to visit in person we were not going to pass it up.
Our visit to Oga’s Cantina was sponsored by the grandparents, my inlaws, and was part of a week long family vacation we spent in Orlando. One day of that was spent doing all the Star Wars experiences we could at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. (Visit our Virtual Trip to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge article for tips on getting ready for a visit or a Virtual Spring Break trip there.)
We recognize that, right now, there are restrictions on traveling. We can’t go to the places we’d love to visit. But we know this won’t last forever. Restrictions will be lifted and we’ll all be out and about and making new memories with our family. That’s why Jersey Family Fun writers continue to work behind the scenes developing content that will help you when that time comes. Please be safe and keep reading.
Do I need a reservation for Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge?
There are not a lot of spots to eat or drink at Galaxy’s Edge so Oga’s Cantina is certainly popular. Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be placed up to 6 months in advance. You can use either the Disney theme park websites or the app.
You will not need your Disney tickets to make a reservation BUT you will NEED Disney tickets to gain admission to the theme park to get to Oga’s Cantina. You will also need to hold your reservation with a credit card or debit card.
I made my reservation for the 7 of us about 2 months in advance. I was able to secure a time, but there were only 2 time slots available. Both were during the breakfast hours, 9:05 am to 10:00 am. Lunch hours are 10:05 am to 3:55 pm. Dinner hours are 4 – 9 pm. I definitely recommend making your reservations earlier versus waiting.
What if we need special accommodations?
If you need special accommodations either for food allergies or wheelchair accessible seating you NEED to state that when you make your reservation. Seating is limited at Oga’s Cantina. The great majority of guests are expected to stand during their visits at tables like below.
We were able to get booth seating because we had requested wheelchair accessibility, but even then we had to remind the hostess staff of our needs. I think, had we not mentioned that in our reservation, we would have had to wait longer.
The website lists guests may remain in wheelchair/ECVs. We did not see other guests in wheelchairs or with scooters. Our experience was that there was not room for wheelchairs or scooters inside. The pathways are wide but when filled with people it’s harder to get through. Instead my mother-in-law parked her electric scooter with other wheelchairs outside of the restaurant and used her walker to get from the entrance to the table. Once at the booth we placed her walker out of the way.
As with other Disney theme park restaurants guests with food allergies are encouraged to note that in their reservations and to speak to someone at the restaurant when entering. I opted to have the overnight oats as a safe option, but I did not confirm that it was gluten-free. If that’s a concern for you please confirm before ordering.
How do I check in for Oga’s Cantina?
You will want to arrive at Oga’s Cantina about 15 minutes before your reservation with everyone in your group. There will likely be a line. Please make sure when getting in line that you check in with a staff member regarding your reservation time. There are usually 1-2 team members checking in guests with a tablet. At that time, it doesn’t hurt to remind them of any special accommodations you need and had noted in your reservation.
What should I expect during our visit?
Expect a great experience. You will have 45 minutes for your experience and staff will remind you of that a few times. ;-) But at no time did we feel rushed.
The service was phenomenal! Our server was funny, charismatic, and a joy to be around.
For most guests, booth seating like below will not be available. Instead you will be escorted to a waist-high table tops where guests stand around. One thing to note is that your group will be with other groups. You may find guests there sharing your table when you arrive and other groups will join you before you leave. We didn’t feel crowded in but it’s important to be aware that you are sharing table space.
The restaurant is circular/oval-like in shape. Booths are available along the outer edge of the inside, the bar is in the center, and the higher tables are between the bar and the booths.
If you want to take pictures of the decor or fully appreciate the environment make sure you walk around to explore as you wait for your order. You won’t be allowed to do so after your reserved time is over. Since the Cantina is a popular place it can be difficult to get pictures without a lot of people in it but it is possible if you’re patient and can take advantage of the zoom features on your camera.
One other note, there are no bathrooms inside the Cantina. Make sure you go before you arrive.
What can I order at Oga’s Cantina?
While Oga’s Cantina is known as the place-to-go for Star Wars themed drinks and concoctions there are a few food items guests can order. Don’t expect a full meal but instead a light snack to hold you over till your next meal or visit here for a light breakfast.
You can see the full Oga’s Cantina menu with pricing at the Walt Disney World website but we wanted to pull out the highlights for you and share our reviews of what we tried.
Oga’s Cantina Breakfast Menu
We visited the Cantina during the breakfast hours. Each of us ordered an item to eat and a drink.
Details about pricing and breakfast options can be found at the Walt Disney World website.
- Orange Juice
- Apple Juice
- Double Expresso
- Caffee Latte
- Black Spire Brew
- Moogan Tea
- Tarine Tea
- Mustafarian Cinnamon Roll – A sweet galactic delight. – Everyone in our group, besides me, tried this cinnamon roll and gave it great reviews. A month later and my teens are still saying it was good.
- Rising Moon Overnight Oats – Oats, dragon fruit, yogurt, seasonal fruit. – This was a pretty treat to try for breakfast at Oga’s Cantina. The fruit tasted great but the oats portion not so much. The way the oats laid on the yogurt created a very grainy texture that I didn’t enjoy.
Oga’s Cantina All Day Menu
While on the Walt Disney World website they list a lunch and dinner menu for Oga’s Cantina, the options are the same for both menus. The drinks listed below are available all day, but the snack options we list are only available during lunch and dinner hours.
Concoctions – Drinks with Alcohol

Concoctions – Drinks without Alcohol
Since we imagine many of our readers will be traveling to Galaxy’s Edge with children, we wanted to make sure you know there are plenty of fun drinks for your kids that DO NOT contain alcohol.
- Jabba Juice – Simply Orange with Pineapple, Kiwi, Cantaloupe, and Blueberry Popping Pearls – I enjoyed this fruity drink. The blueberry popping pearls added a fun texture to the drink. It was light and almost liking letting a blueberry-flavored bubble dissolve in your mouth.
- Hyperdrive (Punch It!) – POWERADE Mountain Berry Blast, White Cranberry Juice, Black Cherry Purée, and Sprite – My 11 year old had this. He said he liked the flavor but did not like the taste of the flavoring around the top edge of the glass.
- Blurrgfire – Odwalla Lemonade, Pomegranate Juice, and Habanero-Lime
- Black Spire Brew – Cold Brew Joffrey’s Coffee, Honey, Falernum, Passion Fruit, and Citrus
- Carbon Freeze – POWERADE Lemon Lime, Wild Strawberry, Blueberry, and Green Apple Popping Pearls
- Blue Bantha – Blue Milk served chilled with Bantha-inspired Vanilla-Butter Sugar Cookie (contains tree nuts: coconut) – What kid can refuse a drink with a cookie on top? My 14 year old tried this and said “It was good.”
- Cliff Dweller – Citrus Juices, Coconut, Hibiscus-Grenadine, and Seagram’s Ginger Ale served in a Souvenir Porg Mug (Since this drink is served in a souvenir cup it is on the pricier side, $35 at the time of our visit.)
Provisions & Snacks
- Batuu Bits – Crispy Galaxy Snack Bits with Spiced Chermoula Dip
- Happabore Sampler – Cured and Roasted Meats, Cheese, Pork Cracklings
- Oga’s Obsession – Oga’s Obsession Odwalla Lemonade, Cotton Candy Flavor, Blueberry Popping Pearls with a Bursting Dried Fruit Mixture
- Rodian Ration with ALCOHOL – Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Dekuyper Pucker Sour Apple, Green Apple, Sprite, and Boba Balls with a Pop
Is Oga’s Cantina expensive?
I found the pricing to be in line with what you would expect at a tourist destination. If you’re looking to have the Oga’s Cantina experience and save money doing so I would avoid the alcoholic drinks and skip ordering the snacks. A family of 5 could visit, enjoy nonalcoholic drinks, and spend around $50.
With the exception of the Cliff Dweller, most of the nonalcoholic drinks are less than $10 each. We found the alcoholic drinks and concoctions to run between $12 and $20. The Yub Nub in a souvenir Endor Mug was $45 and a Rancor Beer Flight with 4 beers was $85.
The different snack options ranged in pricing from $6 – $21.
Disney Dining Plans are not accepted at Oga’s Cantina.
Can I buy souvenirs?
Not exactly, there is no gift shop at Oga’s Cantina. There are a few drink options that do come with a souvenir cup, but the most popular Oga’s Cantina souvenir are the drink coasters.
The coasters are free and the servers encourage you to take them. During our visit servers would frequently pass our table dropping off extra souvenir coasters. I think we came home with at least 10.
Is Oga’s Cantina worth it?
So many memories are built around coming together at a table for food and drink it’s only natural we’d want to enhance our family vacations to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge with such an experience. Whether you are trying to stay on a budget or can splurge on drinks with souvenir cups, if you are going to have the Star War experience at a Disney theme park then you’ve got to give Oga’s Cantina a try.
