    We have reservations at Oga's Cantina for our upcoming trip! Is this an appropriate (and fun?) spot for my tweens/young teens to enjoy as well? Or should we cancel and find a new experience? Thanks!

    Bright suns, Jamie, and welcome to planDisney! Your upcoming visit to a magical world far, far away will be here in just a few parsecs. My husband and I have enjoyed many pitstops at Oga's Cantina while traveling the galaxy, so let's talk about what your padawans might enjoy at this unique establishment. 

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is one of my favorite lands in Walt Disney World Resort. Walking through the entrance, I am transported to the outlying planet Batuu. In my opinion, this is the most immersive area at any theme park. And what I love about Oga's Cantina is that it's tucked away among the maze of stone passageways. But once you go inside, its magic comes alive!

    Guests have about 45 minutes to choose from the menu and take in all the out-of-this-world sights and sounds of the cantina. There's a bar where you can watch the bartenders mix exotic drinks and observe the other patrons and staff, who might just be smugglers in disguise. 

    In other words, there's no other experience like being at Oga's, and I think tweens and teens will have a blast just taking it all in. DJ R-3X is a metalhead who spins records...I mean, his head is actually metal! His antics alone will keep the whole family entertained. 

    As for libations for young starfighters, there's an entire section of "mocktails" to delight any palate. I've never tried the Blue Bantha, but it comes with a cookie, and who doesn't like a good Bantha-inspired cookie? Snacks can vary, but the current offering is Oga's Obsession, which contains space-age-style candy and dried fruit. 

    One tip is to ask to be seated at a table. The bar areas are a bit high for most kiddos to see over, so they might be more comfy at a table. We like being at the tables because we are often seated with another group which makes for some fun conversations. I like to imagine I'm rubbing elbows (tentacles?) with local bounty hunters and traders!

    I also suggest doing an online search for "Oga's Cantina with kids" to see what other space travelers have thought about the experience. And if you choose a more traditional meal or snack, there are many options at Disney's Hollywood Studios. One of my favorite meals is the Plant-based Totchos at Woody's Lunch Box. Be sure to secure your new reservation soon since you're well within your booking window, and remember that you can cancel most dining reservations up to two hours before your arrival time.

    Jamie, you know your younglings better than anyone, but I think most kids would enjoy the experience at Oga's Cantina. It's not a full meal, and you're there less than an hour, so I say you give it a try. I have a GOOD feeling about this! Please feel free to stop by planDisney anytime. 'Til the Spires!

    Magic awaits,
    Elaine
