If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy a drink on vacation, Walt Disney World has a lot of tasty options. You will see cocktail, beer and wine stands around the property but this article counts down ten bars we love around Disney World Resort. Be sure to keep an eye open for these spots the next time you are at Walt Disney World.
1. AbracadaBar – Disney’s BoardWalk
Located inside Flying Fish on the Disney BoardWalk, this bar serves upscale traditional cocktails with a magic show theme. The backstory surrounding this lounge involves groups of magicians that spent the evenings amazing onlookers while concocting delicious new cocktails. Cocktails like The Conjurita, Parlor Trick and the Magic Mirror tie in with the bars fun theme. Wine and beer drinkers will find still and sparkling wine options and an assortment of Florida craft beers. This spot is perfect for drinks prior to dinner or a nightcap before enjoying a starlit evening walk around the Disney BoardWalk.
2. Victoria Falls Lounge– Animal Kingdom Lodge
Enjoy the beauty of the grand lobby in the Animal Kingdom Lodge with a drink in hand at Victoria Falls Lounge. This bar offers a good assortment of beer and cocktails, but my personal favorite are the African wine options that are unique to this bar at Walt Disney World and sourced from around the continent. Your biggest challenge of the day will likely be deciding between the Cape Costal Wine Flight and the Cape Collection Wine Flight!
3. Coca-Cola Store Rooftop Beverage Bar– Disney Springs
Take a break from Disney Springs shopping to relax with a Coke inspired cocktail at the Coca-Cola Store Bar. The menu includes options with and without alcohol, frosted drinks and even an international tasting tray of coke from around the world! Take in beautiful views of Disney Springs from the roof as you enjoy an Adult Coca-Cola Float made with Coke, ice cream Bacardi Superior Rum and Kahlúa.
4. Petals– Pop Century Resort
This poolside bar is adorably themed after the bright colors and fun of the 1960s and is located alongside the Hippy Dippy Pool in the 1960s section of Disney’s Pop Century Resort. This is a perfect bar for cooling off midday, a spot to snag a frozen drink between dips in the pool or to enjoy a nightcap after a park day. Try a frozen Strawberry Margarita, a Hula Hoop Cocktail or a tangy Lava Lamp cocktail.
5. BaseLine Tap House– Hollywood Studios
This lounge is a top Disney spot for brews. While there are a few alternative beverage options on the menu, the specialty at the Tap House is no surprise, beer. With around twenty beers on tap there are enough options for you to visit multiple times during vacation. If you like sampling an assortment of beer, spring for the create-your-own-beer flight selecting five ounce pours of four different beers.
6. Banana Cabana– Caribbean Beach Resort
Daiquiri and rum lovers rejoice! The Banana Cabana at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is the perfect tropical spot to get your frozen drink fix while relaxing poolside in a bright and fun atmosphere. This dive is filled with the bright colors of the Caribbean, rattan tables and even swing seating. Cool off with the simple classic Frosé, made with Titos’s Handmade Vodka and delicious rosé. If you are looking for a cocktail native to this bar, try a Pink Guava Colada or a Banana Cabana. Each of these drinks are filled with delicious fruit juices and several specialty rums. Guests interested in sampling an assortment of rums should order the Caribbean Rum Flight. This fifteen dollar tasting experience allows guest three rum pours from a menu of rums produced around the Caribbean.
7. Tambu Tambu Lounge– Polynesian Village Resort
Located on the second floor of the Great Ceremonial House at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort you will find Tambu Tambu Lounge directly outside ‘Ohana. This bar is filled with tropical cocktails that will transport you to the South Seas. The Backscratcher is a popular cocktail at this bar but the must have drink is the Lapu Lapu. Served in a hulled pineapple shell with an umbrella atop the lid, this drink is an expert mix of light and dark rum, liqueurs and fresh pineapple juice. A cold Lapu Lapu is worth a trip to this bar.
8. Outer Rim– Contemporary Resort
Views of beautiful Bay Lake from Outer Rim at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is a great way to unwind on a Disney vacation. This bar has long been a guest favorite serving up the famous and fun Glow-tini alongside drinks like a Godiva Chocolate Martini, Watermelon Margarita and an assortment of beer and wine options.
9. La Cava del Tequila– Epcot World Showcase
You cannot visit Epcot’s World Showcase without snagging a drink. Delicious drink options abound in this park, but my all-time favorite remains La Cava del Tequila located inside the Mexican temple. From the great ambiance to the quality tequila and unique margaritas, you will love this Disney bar. We recommend the La Cava Avocado Margarita.
10. Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto– Polynesian Village Resort
This awesome bar was so popular at opening that guests waited hours for a table. Lucky for you, the bustle around this bar has reduced with all the fun and specialty cocktails still rolling. Tucked away in the back corner of the Great Ceremonial House in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, this bar is a crossover between a South Seas Tiki Room vibe and the Jungle Cruise’s beloved Trader Sam. You can find small bites and appetizers like sushi, roasted pork sliders and Hawaiian Poke. Cocktails like the Shrunken Zombie Head and Castaway Crush are served to guests with fun and fanfare. Do not miss ordering the creamy tropical Polynesian Pearl and take home the pearl cup as a souvenir!
