There is a large variety of beverages and snacks that are all Indiana Jones themed, including drinks like “The Fountain of Youth” and snacks like “Squid, Why does it have to be squid?” While this is not a place to sit for a full meal, we definitely recommend stopping and taking a break at the hangar while you are visiting Disney Springs.
