Although the theme park already offers alcohol in its adjacent California Adventure park (and in its exclusive private Club 33 at Disneyland itself), the public liquor sales mark a first in the park's 63-year history. The theme park expansion, officially titled Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, is set to open at both of Disney's parks next year and they have slowly but surely been unveiling details regarding the attractions.
Oga's Cantina is expected to attract all kinds of characters from around the galaxy, so you never know who we might see in there! The outpost is divided between Resistance and First Order forces, with the watering hole called Oga's Cantina serving as a neutral zone. So far it looks like there will be choices for kids and adults, plus alcoholic beverages. A Disney Parks representative tells Nerdist that Oga's"will serve an innovative menu of non-alcoholic and alcohol-based custom cocktails along with beer and wine options". Guests of the cantina travel from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions crated with exotic ingredients and "otherworldly" methods, served in unique vessels. Maybe we can get some version of a Blue Milk White Russian?
Previously announced was the news that musical entertainment will be provided courtesy of the cantina's DJ, RX-24 (we know him as Rex), the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid we first met in Star Tours.
The Star Wars outpost of Black Spire is a smuggler's paradise.
Disney made the welcome announcement on the park's blog on Thursday, Aug. 30. The space will be run by an intriguing alien proprietor, Oga Garra and the cantina will adhere to a strict code of conduct that tries to keep its unruly patrons in check.
"Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be a completely immersive true-to-story experience", said park spokeswoman Liz Jaeger, speaking to the Orange County Register.
