Disneyland’s new Star Wars expansion, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, will bring something adults fans have wanted for decades: booze. When the expansion opens, it will break Disneyland tradition and serve pre-mixed alcoholic drinks.
A blog on Disney Theme Parks’ website first hinted at alcoholic beverages being available at one of the dining spots within Galaxy’s Edge. Disney representatives told the Los Angeles Times that alcoholic drinks will be available for adult visitors in Oga’s Cantina. The Times called this “a significant development at the attraction because Disneyland has never sold booze to park visitors, except to members of the private Club 33, an exclusive dinner club at Disneyland’s New Orleans Square.”
Alcoholic drinks are available at California Adventure Park, which is located right next to Disneyland but is a separate, stand-alone theme park. People can purchase liquor through bars and restaurants located within California Adventure Park and the nearby Downtown Disney, but they can’t bring drinks into Disneyland.
Similarly, drinks will be available for purchased in the Cantina, but patrons won’t be allowed to bring the drinks from the restaurant into the general park area.
Here’s a detailed description of what Oga’s Cantina will have to offer:
Visitors come to this notorious local watering hole to unwind, conduct shady business, and maybe even encounter a friend…or a foe. Run by an intriguing alien proprietor, Oga Garra, the cantina adheres to a strict code of conduct that tries to keep its unruly patrons in check. But with a history of being a smugglers’ safe haven and a popular stopping point for those seeking to avoid the authorities, you can bet that the cantina has a story or two to tell.
Oga’s Cantina is the kind of establishment that attracts some of the most interesting and disreputable characters in the galaxy. And you never know when a stormtrooper or a familiar face will show up. Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using “otherworldly” methods, served in unique vessels. With choices for kids and libations for adults, the cantina will make for a great stop!
Musical entertainment is provided courtesy of RX-24, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid we first met in Star Tours, who has re-envisioned himself as the cantina’s DJ. As quirky and talkative as ever, he’s still trying to do his best on the job.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open in 2019 at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and at Disneyland.
