Oga’s Cantina Review at Batu East and West

The Disney Drink Blog used hyperdrive to visit Oga’s Cantina at Batu West and then in the same week Batu East.

For the uninitiated, Oga’s Cantina is the new Star Wars Themed Bar at Disneyland Park in California and Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida.

We really enjoyed trying these new, highly themed bars on both coasts. In this post we’ll cover the atmosphere, drinks, and note any differences.

Oga's Cantina Review Bar

Oga’s is a very busy fun location!

Reservations are required and can be made via My Disney Experience (app or web) and the Disney World website for Florida and via the Disneyland app and website for California.

Note: On both coasts they state Reservations only. During breakfast we noted a line all morning at Disneyland and they stuck to the reservations only policy While Disney World there was often no line for breakfast and they were taking walk-ups during breakfast.

Disney asks that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your reservation. When you arrive, you’ll see the line to the right of the door/podium. this line is for those with reservations. Just hop in the line; a cast member will verify your reservation as you get in line or shortly thereafter.

Atmosphere

Whether you are a Star Wars fan or not this is a fun bar to visit. It’s loud and very busy, but there is so much detail to look at. It’s a fun atmosphere.

There is Star Wars cantina style music playing continuously by the robotic DJ and there are a couple of songs where the staff joins in singing and shouting.

Seating

Ogas has three types of “seating,” wide U shaped booths with low stools on the the open side along the outer wall, standing only narrow, high-top tables between the bar and booths, and the standing only bar.

We noter that wait service tends to be slow, at least during our visits, so we recommend the bar.

When it’s your turn to enter the hostess will take you to the “seating” type that’s available. You can ask for they type you’d like, which might extend your wait time.

With bar or high-top you’ll get just enough area for your drinks initially. As those near you leave you can naturally claim a little more surface.

You will be squished in wherever there is room. You will be seated with other parties at the tables.

LIMITATIONS

Oga’s on both coasts has a stated policy of two drinks max (of any type alcohol or not) per person and a 45 minute stay in the bar.

Having said this, there is no way for them to monitor your time inside and control it. They use the two drink limit to do this. I’ve never seen anyone be asked to leave.

Notable difference:

In Florida they strictly adhere to the two drink limit on a single check. A single bartender or waitperson will serve you. When you order your first drink they print a running total, when you get your second they have you pay. Tip: moving elsewhere in the bar could extend your stay…

In California, no drink limit! The bar is a free for all. Multiple bartenders will serve you and you pay after each drink. It’s possible to stay for well over two drinks!

The Menu

Oga serves a variety of out of this world concoctions.

All mixed drinks are pre-made in big batches and poured out of a tap. The only mixology that bartenders perform is mixing/adding accents (bitters, cream, etc.) and garnishing.

Oga’s has a breakfast and an all day menu. The breakfast food and drinks are only available from opening until 10 a.m. while the regular menu is available from open to close.

All of Oga’s Drinks are sweet to very sweet! The exceptions being breakfast drinks with alcohol.

Specialty Drinks

Breakfast Only

Bloody Rancor – Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, Spicy Bloody Mary Mix, and Rancor Bone – $18.00

A serviceable Bloody Mary. Not the best we’ve had at Disney, but not the worst. The merengue “bone” is very sweet.

Spiran Caf – Peru Alto Mayo Organic Joffrey’s Coffee®, Orange Marmalade, Gosling’s 151 Rum, Vanilla Whipped Cream, and Citrus Zest – $17.00

We didn’t care for the Caf, it was citrusy and bitter at the same time.

All Day

Jedi Mind Trick – Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit and Rose Vodka, John D. Taylor’s Velvet Falernum, Bols Blue Curaçao, White Grape Juice, Lime Juice, and Grapefruit Bitters – $15.00

The Jedi Mind Trick reminded us of grape juice, it was very sweet.

Fuzzy Tauntaun – Cîroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, and Simply Orange topped with Tangerine, Pure Cane Sugar, “Buzzz” Foam – $16.00

The Fuzzy Tauntuan is esentially a Fuzzy Navel, with a foam on top that will numb your lips and mouth, it’s quite odd. It’s a good drink once you get past the foam.

Dagobah Slug Slinger – Herradura Reposado Tequila, Bols Blue Curaçao, Citrus Juices, Ginger, Herbs, and Bitters – $16.00

The Dagobah Slug Slinger is both earthy and sweet.

Bespin Fizz – Bacardi Superior Rum, Yuzu Purée, Pomegranate Juice, White Cranberry Juice, and Cloud Swirl – $18.00

The Bespin Fizz has liquid carbon dioxide injected into a lower compartment in the glass, this forms dry ice. The dry ice creates the bubbling and mist. This is a sweet grape-juice like drink with hints of pomegranate which seemed stronger at the bottom.

T-16 Skyhopper – Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Bols Melon Liqueur, Kiwi, and Half and Half – $16.00

The Skyhopper has a great melon taste smoothed with the cream shaken into the alcohol. This was a favorite.

Jet Juice – Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, Cedilla Açaí Liqueur, White Grape Juice, and Lemon Juice – $15.00

Jet Juice is the least sweet drink on the regular menu. You’ll feel the chili tang a bit after a sip. If you are looking for a strong drink this is the strongest one offered by Oga and probably the least sweet all day drink.

The Outer Rim – Patrón Silver Tequila, Cedilla Açaí Liqueur, Lime Juice, and Pure Cane Sugar topped with Black Salt and Exotic Fruit Purée – $17.00

The Outer Rim is a fruity margarita. The sweet puree mixed with the sharp bite of the salt is great!

Beers

White Wampa Ale – Ballast Point Brewing Co. – Classic Hefeweizen with a Banana and Citrus Character | ABV 4.5% – IBU 10 – $14.25

We’re not big on hefeweizens unless we’re in Germany on a warm day sitting outside… This one seemed watery.

Bad Motivator IPA – Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. – Tropical India Pale Ale with Galaxy and Comet Hops | ABV 6.0% – IBU 50 – $13.25

Typical IPA bite, good.

Gamorrean Ale – New Belgium Brewing Co. – Red Ale with Roasted Caramel, Hop Character, and Touch of Grapefruit | ABV 5.8% – IBU 42 – $13.25.

Good!  A little hoppy but not too much. You’ll taste the grapefruit.

Gold Squadron Lager – Blue Point Brewing Co. – Golden Lager with Lavender and Plum Flavors | ABV 5.0% – IBU 18 – $13.25 –

A fairly plain lager.

Mustafarian Lava Roll – sweet galactic delight – $6.00

Our family loves Disney cinnamon rolls, we REALLY LOVE Disney cinnamon rolls! This one not so much. Small by Disney standards, with an odd flavor. The crumbled Oreo on the top didn’t add much.
