Tons of activity is packed within Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World. Fly the Millenium Falcon. Build your own lightsaber and astromech droid. Interact with Rey, Kylo Ren and other Star Wars characters. That’s a lot for any Star Wars fan or casual park-goer to take in! When we frogs need a short break from the hustle and bustle of Batuu, we find there is nothing better than grabbing refreshing drinks at Oga’s Cantina. But how do you get into this hoppin' place? That is the big question. Here's what you need to know!
How to Make Reservations for Oga's Cantina at Disney World
Oga’s Cantina has been a toadally fun destination for Batuu travelers. But unlike the cantinas in the Star Wars universe, availability is limited (in an effort to limit capacity). That in mind, since Disney's Hollywood Studios' reopening, reservations are required to belly up to this space bar. If you don't have a reservation, you won't be able to enter Oga's Cantina. Currently, you can check availability and book a reservation online or via the My Disney Experience app up to 60 days in advance. Separate theme park admission and a Disney Park Pass is required.
Oga’s Cantina reservations require a credit card guarantee, which means you’ll need to enter your card information when booking. However, the card won’t be charged until you arrive at the cantina. If you don’t show up for your reservation, you’ll face a cancellation fee of $10 per person. Be sure to cancel at least a day before if you need to so that you can avoid the no-show penalty. Keep your eye on the time, as late arrivals may not be accommodated. That said, choose a reservation time that you can realistically make. You’ll need enough time to arrive, go through security and the entrance turnstiles and walk toward the back of the park.
Although Oga's is not taking standby guests right now, we're keeping this information in case Oga's starts accepting walk-ins in the future: If you don't have a reservation time, feel free to check with the cast members outside to see if they are taking in people on standby. If there's availability, they may be able to squeeze you in, or ask you to come back at a later time. One of the Batuu residents let us in on another insider secret: If the queue falls short before the end of the line of umbrellas outside, that's generally when it opens up room for people without reservations. However, still keep in mind that standby does not guarantee admission.
The Atmosphere Inside Oga’s Cantina at Disney World
A dimly lit tavern with background music played by aliens … does this sound familiar? In many ways, Oga’s Cantina shares a similar vibe with the Mos Eisley Cantina from the 1977 "Star Wars" film. It’s an enclosed space with low lighting and high activity.
If you need to check in for a reservation, be sure to arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your scheduled time. Meet with the cast member at the end of the queue. Prepare to show your reservation confirmation email, photo ID and credit card that you used when booking. Guests will be admitted as soon as space that accommodates their party size becomes available.
Prior to COVID-19, the space was mainly standing room only, as there is limited seating inside the cantina. When we walked in, we were directed to a spot right in front of the bar (bar service is not available currently). The only sit-down booths available were lined up in little coves against the wall. There were also long high-top tables where you could order from servers. (Short tadpoles might have a hard time reaching the top, but they are welcome inside!) Unfortunately, you do not pick where you go, and because of social distancing, you cannot wander around the cantina. However, R3X (or Rex) will still play his intergalactic tunes!
Speaking of R3X (or Rex), you may have already seen him around Disney's Hollywood Studios. He is the same pilot droid from Star Tours: The Adventures Continue. At some point, he crash-landed onto Batuu and was reprogrammed into a DJ by Mubo, who runs the Droid Depot. Mubo gave Rex to Oga Garra to pay off a debt, so now he's spinning funky tunes at the cantina. Even the bartenders will cheer and chant along with the music (you know, just like bars here on Earth!).
Oga’s Cantina Menu
It’s finally the moment you’ve been waiting for … let’s talk about the food and drinks!
Oga’s Cantina follows Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ operational hours, so you can start your day at the park with a drink, eat a mid-afternoon snack or finish the day off with a galactic concoction. The lunch and dinner hours share the exact same menu, including prices. While there are a ton of alcoholic beverages to enjoy, tadpoles and frogs who don’t drink alcohol have options, as well. (The Disney World menu is almost identical to Disneyland's Oga's Cantina, but has one exclusive alcoholic provision: the Rodian Ration.)

- Happabore Sampler – Cured and roasted meats, cheese and pork cracklings.
- Batuu Bits – Crispy galaxy snack bits with spiced chermoula dip. We thought it had interesting flavors, ranging from sweet to spicy.
Each guest has a one-drink minimum and a two-drink maximum. Frogs must be 21 or older to consume alcohol, so don’t froget to bring your photo ID! Your party’s time is limited to 45 minutes to accommodate other frogs with reservations. You cannot take your drinks with you, but if you ordered a drink in a souvenir mug, you'll receive a new, clean boxed one to go.
