Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the first location to serve alcohol in Disneyland Park, other than Club 33. Ever since Disney announced that Oga’s Cantina would serve alcoholic beverages, fans everywhere have responded with mixed reviews. Some disagree with Disney’s decision to serve alcohol in Disneyland, as Walt Disney originally didn’t want any alcohol to be served in his theme parks, while others think alcohol in Disneyland has been a long-time coming. Either way, Oga’s Cantina is expectedly one of the most popular spots for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge visitors. Here’s an inside look at Disneyland’s first bar.

Despite rumors that Oga’s Cantina was going to be an incredibly small space, the interior of the bar is actually larger than you’d expect. The interior has plenty of hidden gems and fascinating sights to take in, so be sure to look around before you settle in with your drink. Oga’s Cantina was designed to be reminiscent of the cantina in the original 1977 “Star Wars” movie while still retaining its own unique character. The cantina features a circular bar in the center with various seating throughout, so visitors can stay while they enjoy their drinks and provisions.

Of course, given the capacity, there’s almost guaranteed to always be a queue to enter Oga’s Cantina. Since there will be standby queue’s for both Oga’s Cantina and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run during your visit to Batuu, we recommend waiting for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run first before attempting to get into Oga’s Cantina. After you’ve had your chance to experience the attraction, spend some times around the merchandise locations in Batuu before waiting in line for Oga’s Cantina. The interior of the bar is just as immersive as the rest of the land, and while the drinks are great and we recommend visiting if you have time, don’t spend all of your visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge waiting in queues. Remember that if you just want to order Blue Milk, you can purchase it from the Milk Stand as well.

As we shared before, Oga’s Cantina serves both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, from the iconic Blue Milk (the nondairy, non-alcoholic, fruity milkshake beverage) to a Jedi Mind Trick cocktail and even a Bad Motivator IPA beer. And we must admit, the drinks are out of this world. The Carbon Freeze is as delicious as it looks, and it utilizes Disney’s new dry ice trend we’ve been seeing in drinks around the parks lately. When it comes to alcoholic drinks, you can’t go wrong with the Bad Motivator IPA beer or The Outer Rim.

Visitors to Oga’s Cantina are limited to only 45 minutes inside and are only allowed to purchase two drinks. Remember that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge visitors are not allowed to walk around Disneyland with the alcohol they purchase at Oga’s Cantina. This differs significantly from Disneyland Resort’s alcohol policies currently in place at Disney California Adventure, where guests can walk around with alcoholic beverages they purchase at the theme park’s various quick service locations. Since Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the only location serving alcohol in Disneyland, guests are not allowed to leave the land with their drinks in hand. Be prepared to abide by this policy if you choose to purchase alcohol on Batuu.
