I thought I’d offer some experience and insight from my time with DD21 in SWGE during the Wine and Dine race weekend
I had booked Ultimate Thrills tour given the nutty and annoying Tier system for DHS, as well as reservations for light saber, droid, and Oga’s after the tour.
Ultimate Thrills tour is great and was great, but it is annoying to have to pay for it to ensure the DHS headliners. But, did it and all good
Then we went off to explore SWGE — which I had done at DLR but first time for DD. Bottom Line: So great! We did the Play Disney app games throughout, rode MFSR, huge fun with DD building her light saber and R2D2. Dishes in Docking Bay are great, seeing Chewie, Rey, Stormtroopers throughout the land so great.
Droid building was SO fun, lightsaber great but for the money Droid building was more fun for us.
But Oga’s was bad. I get its a bar and crowded. Been to many in my many years. I get our reservation would not guarantee a table. I had reserved the very day in August that reservations opened, but i knew/understood it a bar. well, bar-ish.
But as we were inline having checked in we were told we’d be standing at OR near the bar, no bar seats. I protested that we had a reservation and was told that we could wait for actual seats — because the bar does not have bar stools, what? — but there was no guarantee that we would get one and it would be a very long wait.
so we gave in to the pressure, and were escorted to a tiny space at the bar in the area normally used by serving staff - that is, about hipheight, not even normal bar height. No seats or bar stools.
We ordered and the bartender informed us that there was no wine (which I wanted). What!? A bar with no wine?! We ordered from the drink menu and then observed the bartender pouring the supposed mixed drinks from spigots — yes, the expensive cocktails are not actually cocktails but come from a keg through a bar spigot.
Then, my DD needed to visit the bathroom and while she was gone the hostess brought 2 new guests to our space and told me to move over to let them into DD’s space at the bar. When I explained DD was away in the facilities and would shortly be back, the hostess moved over a few people on the bar, pushed people in my direction, closed the space, deposited the other guests having squeezed us out, and left.
When DD returned we agreed this was the negative of fun and left.
So, for what its worth, if you are going to Oga’s expect to be standing in very close and crowded quarters without even bar stools at the bar (there are some seats around the edges of the facility but the numbers don’t favor getting them), industrial spigot-delivered bar drinks, and dismissive CM behavior. I hope others have had better experiences but I’m not going back and have canceled all of my reservations for future trips!
