Oga’s Cantina Review
I’m sure you could get a review on Oga’s Cantina anywhere…but how about a pregnant woman’s view of a place where you can mostly buy only alcoholic drinks? I think not…read on for my take on this highly raved over bar.
Reservations for Oga’s Cantina
If you want to visit Oga’s, make sure to get reservations prior to your trip. You will want to show up a little bit before your reservation time. They have cast members who will ask for your name, time of reservation and number in your party. You will continue to wait until they call your party. They will explain that most of the space is standing room only, and you will need to share tables/space with other parties. Cast members encourage you to take pictures at the end of your stay at Oga’s because your seat could be taken if you get up to take pictures towards the beginning of your stay.
Libations & The Good Stuff
This is definitely the place to go if you’re looking for some good drinks and a fun atmosphere! Rex the deejay has some great tunes…there’s a song that comes on – where everyone jumps in and sings – it’s great!
This is how we party at Oga’s!
As with everywhere else in Batuu, the cast members are phenomenal at not breaking character! Our waitress was hilarious, cracking lots of jokes, and talking as if she really was from Batuu!
Oga’s Cantina Menu
The menu, as you can see below, is mostly alcoholic drinks. However, you can change any of these drinks to non-alcoholic drinks too. Everyone we shared a table with loved their drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic)…so if you enjoy drinking beverages, you may want to stop by Oga’s.
We obviously didn’t do our homework, and we thought we could eat dinner at Oga’s Cantina. Oops. They have mostly drinks and a few snacks – or “provisions” as they call it. There are a few provisions without alcohol, and some with alcohol. Being prego, I opted for Oga’s Obsession. It was blue with lots of things on it.
The blue part underneath the toppings is jello with balls that pop in your mouth…it reminded me of bubble tea. On top there were pop rocks (yellow)…and something red (maybe a spice?) Pretty sure the small blue balls are dried up blueberries. And then there was some cotton candy (light blue). The whole dish was sweet, and would delight most children…or children in adult bodies…which is most of us at Disney – am I right?
They also have a charcuterie that isn’t on the menu. Ok. Now, I’m not necessarily a charcuterie connoisseur, but this shouldn’t be called charcuterie. This is food scrap trash. Save yourself some money and don’t eat it. Just don’t even think of getting this. If something could taste worse than it looks. It’s this! The only “edible” things – were the string cheese, the pork rinds, some cracker things, and the other cheese ball in the corner. Pickled cauliflower, SPAM, pickled peppers, and other unidentifiable objects made this charcuterie a loss. The only redeeming quality is that it actually looks like something you would find on Batuu.
Save your money for something else at Disney – not the charcuterie! Seating is limited – and you share seats with other travelers. Hence – we shared a table with two other families. We shared our charcuterie- or offered to share with everyone at the table. There was only one brave soul – a father – who tried one or two things. Alas, he too wanted no more. Everyone else at the table reacted in a mix of pity smiles, giggles of disgust, and clearly refused any of our food.
Is Oga’s Cantina Kid-Friendly?
If you are wondering if this is a kid friendly place…it is for older children who have seen Star Wars. I wouldn’t bring your children here if they don’t know what Star Wars is or don’t care about it…but if they are fans – then they will also enjoy the fun atmosphere! They can get non-alcoholic drinks – even served in a porg. AND the porg can go home with you!
We hope this review of Oga’s Cantina helps you determine whether to stop here or not for a drink or some light provisions.
