You’ll get to enjoy lots of new and exciting restaurants on both coasts! (That’s why we’re all here, right!?) Read on to learn more about what what’s opening and where, plus when you can expect to be able to visit each spot!

First up: Oga’s Cantina. Here, you can expect to find Blue Milk, themed cocktails, and non-alcoholic specialty drinks. Don’t forget about the Cantina entertainment, either: RX-24 (Captain Rex from the original Star Tours) will serve as the DJ.
We don’t know the name of other dining experience in Galaxy’s Edge yet, but we do know it will a supper club-style table service restaurant with a dinner show!
This new land is expected to open in “late fall” 2019.
