The Best Bars You Can Find in Disney World
Sometimes, you just need a drink after a long day walking around Disney World. It wouldn’t be Disney if they didn’t go all out in every aspect, so if you’re on the hunt for delicious alcoholic beverages, you really can’t go wrong. However, some bars truly stand out among the rest, serving great drinks and even better atmospheres.
From the parks to the resorts, these are the best bars you can find in Disney World.
- La Cava del Tequila
One place you have to stop for a drink (or two) is La Cava del Tequila at the Mexico pavilion. Not only do they have top-notch margaritas, but you have dozens of tequilas to choose from. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can taste a number of tequilas in a flight. Even if you aren’t a tequila fan, you’ll have plenty of cocktails, beers, and wines to choose from. The low-lit atmosphere is one of the best aspects, as you can temporarily escape the craziness of the park.
- Rose & Crown British Pub
No matter the time of day, Rose & Crown British Pub always has a lively atmosphere. You’ll feel like you’ve actually traveled across the pond at the United Kingdom pavilion, where you can quench your thirst with fresh pints of beer over good conversation. If you’d rather take your drink outside, you can be seated for a meal with a gorgeous view over the lagoon.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
- Nomad Lounge
If you’re looking for a unique experience at a Disney bar, the Nomad Lounge is your place. According to USA Today, it’s “part of the upscale Tiffins restaurant,” and it “invites visitors to share their travel stories by filling out cards that are hung from the ceiling.” On top of getting to taste cocktail ingredients from around the world, they carry an extensive list of beers and wines. Plus, seating on the outdoor patio features a view of a beautiful river and the pathway to Pandora – The World of Avatar.
- Dawa Bar
You may be looking for more of a quick-stop type of bar while hopping between rides in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. In that case, definitely head over to the Dawa Bar. It’s an outdoor bar in the Harambe area of the park, including African beer and cold specialty drinks.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Tune-In Lounge
You’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time at the Tune-In Lounge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. According to USA Today, it’s “located next to the ‘50s Prime Time Café,” and it “shares the same playful mid-century look and vibe.”
While you’re sipping on Dad’s Electric Lemonade, you can watch ‘50s sitcoms on black and white TVs.
- BaseLine Tap House
BaseLine Tap House is a must-stop when walking around Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Since its opening in September 2017, it’s become a staple part of the park. It’s located in the “re-imagined Grand Avenue area,” which is built to reflect “the industrial buzz of modern-day Downtown Los Angeles,” according to the Walt Disney World website.
They specialize in California wine and craft beer, and they even serve flavorful cocktails.
While Magic Kingdom used to have a strict no-alcohol policy, they’ve since allowed alcohol to be served at all sit-down restaurants. So you won’t find any actual bars, but don’t fret — you can still get your drink on. While you’ll find beers, ciders, and wines across the park, they still don’t serve any hard liquors.
- Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
When you need a night away from the rides in Disney World, head over to Disney Springs for drinks, shopping, and live performances. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is definitely at the top of the list for its amazing cocktails and cool atmosphere. It’s designed around where Indiana Jones’ pilot, Jock Lindsey, stops to refuel, so you can imagine just how cool it is inside.
- The Polite Pig
Have you ever had a cocktail on tap? If not, you need to head over to The Polite Pig in Disney Springs. They have small batch cocktails delivered straight from a tap, including classics such as the gin and tonic, vodka lemonade, and Moscow mule. You can get all of them in a pitcher, so make sure to bring your whole crew to this hip stop.
If you’re looking to eat, they’ve got great options — including a sauce bar with the most delicious dipping sauces you’ll ever try.
- Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace – Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Don’t forget about the resorts when you’re looking for places with great drinks. You can’t miss Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace, which is located in Disney’s Polynesian Village resort. It’s accessible by monorail from Magic Kingdom, so you can easily take a break from the park’s craziness.
The drinks are as unique as they are delicious, from the Shrunken Zombie head to the Spikey Pineapple (Dole Whip spiked with rum).
- AbracadaBar – Disney’s BoardWalk
The AbracadaBar is just as cool as it sounds. Located at Disney’s BoardWalk, it’s a magic-themed bar with retro cocktails. According to USA Today, “The story here is that back in its Victorian-era heyday, the BoardWalk featured many magicians, and the bar served as something of a secret-society hangout for them.” As you can imagine, the funky vibes alone are worth checking this spot out.
