Just in case, there was lack of excitement about the upcoming Star Wars theme park expansion being added to Disneyland and Disney World in 2019, we have now come to know that the new property will allow alcoholic beverages. The extension is officially called Star Wars, Galaxy’s Edge, and it will open at the two Disney parks in 2019. They have been strategically revealing new details about the upcoming attractions. Now, they have shared details about Oga’s Cantina, which also brings the great news that there will be Star Wars themed booze available.
Disneyland first opened its doors in 1955. Then on, the alcoholic drinks were available only at the exclusive, members only Club 33. Now things will change with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, because as per the official description of Oga’s Cantina, it will be inspired by the Mos Eisley Cantina, and it is mentioned that the adult drinks will be available the offerings that can be enjoyed at the outlet. The description is shared below:
“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!”
In case you didn’t get it, a Disney park official explained via a statement to Nerdist that the Cantina “will serve an innovative menu of non-alcoholic and alcohol-based custom cocktails along with beer and wine options.” So that is it. Might we be able to get something like the Blue Milk White Russian? This could also lead to some innovative cocktails that will cost so much that even Jabba the Hutt will be embarrassed.
It is quite incredible to see Disney undertake such dramatic changes after over fifty years of operations, but, if there was ever an appropriate time or place to usher in the changes, it is with the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Apart from the drinks, RX-24, the ex StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid that was first seen in the Star Tours, has been revived as the DJ at the cantina. While the Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes might not be there, but, RX-24 appears to be a good replacement. The cantina will be managed by a new character named Oga Garra, who is being called “an intriguing alien proprietor.”
There will also be a ride at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge that will let the visitors pilot the Millennium Falcon, and another attraction based on the Star Destroyer. The attraction is located on the planet called Batuu at Black Spire Outpost and is during the timeline of the current trilogy. This implies it will not be focused on The Resistance and the First Order. The attraction will open its doors at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, next year.
