Top Disney Bar’s
Most people don’t really associate “Disney” with having bars or lounges however Disney has some excellent options to “get your drink on” – From a bar that “rotates” between different cities every 15 minutes to a Tiki Bar that connects every major Disney theme park in the world – Disney has Bars that not only serve up great drinks but also bring you into a whole different world!
~ So in no particular order here are some of my favorite “Disney” Bars – these bars are from Disney Cruise Line Disney Dream and Disney Magic, Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort ~
Skyline – Disney Dream – Disney Cruise Line
Skyline is an upscale Cocktail bar that has one of the most unique concepts of any bar that I have ever been in as every 15 minutes the restaurants large LED screens that take up an entire wall of the restaurant rotate throughout different “Skylines” of the World! From Chicago to New York, Rio de Janeiro, Paris and even Hong Kong you are transported all over the world without having to leave your seat at the bar ~ not only does the Skyline change but so does the menu with each new destination, this is a really awesome concept and defiantly worth an evening on you Disney Cruise.
Trader Sam’s Grogg Grotto – Polynesian Village Resort
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto is a mix between the Jungle Cruise, 20000 Leagues Under the Sea and the Enchanted Tiki Room is it possible that this place isn’t awesome?!? That answer would be NO! Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto has an awesome atmosphere with some awesome effects that happen all throughout the restaurant, not to mention the fact that Grog Grotto has a great selection of Drinks!
Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar – Disneyland Hotel
From the day that Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar opened at the Disneyland Hotel I knew that I wanted visit here! Well as soon as I checked into the Disneyland hotel this was my first visit and it did not disappoint! It has everything that a great Tiki Bar should, awesome atmosphere, hidden details, great drinks and an awesome cast of bartenders!
Todd English Bluezoo – Dolphin Resort
Technically Bluezoo is not in a Disney Resort however since it is within walking distance of both Epcot and Hollywood Studios as well as the Boardwalk and Yacht and Beach Clubs I thought that I would allow it on the list! Bluezoo features some of the most creative cocktails on Disney property and its atmosphere is extremely vibrant its definitely more Vegas than Disney but that is not a bad thing every now and again especially after a 100 degree day spent in the Magic Kingdom! I recommend sitting down and talking with one of the bartenders they are extremely knowledgeable and will fix you up something really innovative! Not to mention that the food at Bluezoo is superb!
Tambu Lounge – Polynesian Village Resort
The Tambu Lounge at the Polynesian Village Resort is arguably the most popular Disney bar anywhere! As its right in the middle of the lobby and right in front of Ohana and Kona Cafe the Tambu lounge is a happening place! I will say that it lives up to its hype and provides some of my favorite drinks on property! Its hard to bet against the ever popular Lapu Lapu or the famous Backscratcher!
Pink – Disney Dream – Disney Cruise Line
Pink is an upscale champagne bar located in the “District” the adult only bar section of the Disney Dream – the idea for the bar is that you are inside a champagne bottle. It is a beautiful bar and they even have their own specialty Champagne that you can only get in Pink – if you are looking for a quite and relaxed upscale bar Pink is a great choice!
JELLYROLLS – Boardwalk Inn – Walt Disney World
JELLYROLLS is a deuling piano bar on the Boardwalk at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort ~ it is the only Disney Bar that has a cover charge and it is 21 and up however it has a loyal following and is jam packed almost every evening. If you are looking for a place to listen to some music and get a little crazy “well Disney Crazy that is” then JELLYROLLS is the place to go when in Walt Disney World!
Capa Steakhouse – Four Season’s – Walt Disney World
Capa Steakhouse is a AAA Four Diamond restaurant located on the 17th floor of the new Four Seasons Resort and Spa in Golden Oak – yes it is technically not a Disney restaurant however it is on Disney Property and it provides some of the best views of the entire Disney resort! You do not need a reservation to head up to the lounge where they feature innovate cocktails as well as fantastic tapas / dessert options! The Four Seasons is the most luxurious resort on Disney property so you never know who you will run into – the night that I was at Capa I sat down right next to Merril Hodge a ESPN pro football analyst!
Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar – Epcot – Walt Disney World
Tutto Gusto is a wine bar located in Epcot’s Italy Pavilion, the wine bar is a newer addition as it was added in 2012. Featuring over 200 wines as well as some fantastic food options it is not to be missed especially on a hot day in the park where you can just walk right in without a reservation and grab a spot either at the bar or at the many tables scattered throughout the restaurant – They have several wine flights to choose from that really showcase a variety of Wines all throughout Italy! The restaurant is staffed by International Disney College Program Students so its a great place to have a conversation and really become immersed in the whole Italian Pavilion!
Fathom’s Disney Magic – Disney Cruise Line
Fathom’s was a new addition to the Disney Magic when it went through its massive Dry Dock in fall of 2013, it is a multi purpose space as it sometimes has bingo, dancing, comedians, magicians and more! It also has portholes in front of the bar so if you want to lookout over the ocean while enjoying a drink this is a perfect location!
Raglan Road – Disney Springs – Walt Disney World
Raglan Road is an absolute blast and is not to be missed! From live Irish music to dancers and more Raglan Road is not to be missed! They also have an extremely large selection of beers and liqueurs and their food is top not, in 2014 it actually was chosen as the best restaurant in all of Orlando! I wholeheartedly recommend stopping in for a pint especially when there is live entertainment generally on weekend nights!
Rix Lounge – Coronado Springs – Walt Disney World
Rix Lounge is the best “off the radar” bar in Walt Disney World. It is an incredibly beautiful bar and has a great selection of Tequila. If you are staying at Coronado Springs or just looking for something a little different than your standard bar head over to Rix Lounge!
Spice Road Table – Epcot – Walt Disney World
Spice Road Table is the newest addition to World Showcase, when it first opened it struggled to find its stride however now after a year and a half of business Spice Road Table is firing on all cylinders! With fantastic views of all of World Showcase especially during Illuminations, as well as great drinks and some awesome Tapas Style food Spice Road Table is my favorite restaurant in all of Epcot and one of my favorite spots to hit anywhere in Walt Disney World! If you are wondering around World Showcase and cannot get a reservation anywhere try and walk up to Spice Road Table, they rarely have a wait and it is an excellent option!
