The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 1 Anyone who’s lived in South Jersey (or the greater Philadelphia for that matter) has heard of Olga’s Diner. It’s a landmark, even though it was closed for many years. An institution, if you will. Oga’s Cantina is nothing like Olga’s Diner, and it’s a very good thing. Oga’s Cantina looks, feels, sounds and smells like it should. Exactly like it should. Stepping inside truly is like walking into the s Continue Reading

The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 12 From guest blogger- Chuck Guth This weekend Disney released their live-action remake of the popular animated cartoon “The Lion King”.

From Behind the Pass, Aloha Edition Volume 1: Monkeypod Kitchen

The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 23 I had been told on several occasions that there isn’t much around Au’lani. Not so, at least not anymore. There are tons of shops, both big chains and small mom-and-pops, as well as restaurants. While getting ready for our trip to Hawaii, my wife came across reviews for a place called Monkeypod Kitchen, right across the street from Au’lani. We went on the first night of our trip, our first real meal on the isl Continue Reading

The Popsicles come in three flavors. Limoncello, Sparkling Strawberry, and Berry Sangria. We opted to try the Limoncello and Berry Sangria. Continue Reading

The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 37 On our last visit to Disney, we had the pleasure of dining at one of our all-time favorite restaurants at Disney Springs, Raglan Road. If you’ve never been before, let me fill you in. Raglan Road is Orlando’s only authentic Irish pub. It was built entirely in Ireland, disassembled, shipped to Orlando, and rebuilt in Disney Springs. The bars are 130 years old! This family-friendly establishment serves up classic Continue Reading

The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 45 While the Walt Disney World Railroad might be down at the Magic Kingdom due to construction of the Tron attraction, there is still a way to get up close to the trains, and sneak in a little ride, and I don’t mean the train that’s currently parked in Main Street Station.

Dining at Trails End

The New “Most Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy”: A Review of Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 66   If you are a fan of The Main Street Mouse then you have probably heard Michele or Scott talk about Trail’s End a few times.  I honestly did not know about this place until they told me about it and now my family is hooked.  Breakfast, Brunch, or Dinner, this place is delicious. Trail’s End is just a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom.  Just steps from the dock, nestled in the trees of Fort Continue Reading
