Fans of the Star Wars universe..er...galaxy are anxiously awaiting the opening of the newest addition to the Disneyland park. The new area will provide a fully immersive experience to guests, with new attractions and theming. One particular aspect, Oga's Cantina, will be offering a truly unique experience that, outside of the uber-exclusive Club 33, has never been seen in Disneyland.
Disney Parks Blog released some new information yesterday regarding Oga's Cantina, and as expected, they pulled out all the stops.
"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!"
Did you catch that last part? For the first time in it's history, Disneyland will be offering alcohol to its guests. This is something that's been hotly debated among Disney fans,with some saying it goes against the values that Walt Disney had established for the park, while others argue that it's progressive step to modernize the parks and needs to be done.
The cantina will also feature music provided by RX-24, who you may remember from Star Tours as the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid. This attraction, and the entire land will certainly be a spectacle to behold and I can't wait to see it all when it opens in 2019.
