FULL MENU Review: Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar in Disney Springs, Walt Disney World

Welcome, adventurers, to Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar in The Landing of Disney Springs!

Or should I say, “Welcome Back”? Just last week, we brought you a First Look from Opening Day of the Hangar, and today we’re back for a full review, including every single food item on the menu, several of the specialty cocktails from the uniquely-themed list of libations, and even a glimpse at some of the specialty souvenir drink glasses on their way to Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.

The reasons behind the high levels of anticipation surrounding the opening of the Hangar Bar have been twofold: first, the backstory surrounds Jock Lindsey — a frequent pilot for the movie character of Indiana Jones — so fans of the film franchise were especially excited to have the chance to step inside the story.

Second, the ongoing transformation from Downtown Disney into Disney Springs continues to bring a whole new kind of dining scene to Disney World, including more upscale dining venues like The Boathouse and Morimoto Asia (set to open this coming Wednesday), and uniquely-themed spots such as the one we’re visiting again today.

So, we know who Jock Lindsey is… but why the “Hangar Bar”? You see, when Jock was flying Indiana Jones over Florida while searching for the Fountain of Youth, he just so happened to spot a piece of waterfront land that caught his attention. [Read more…]

First Look! Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar in Disney World’s Disney Springs

Join us, fellow members of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers, for a First Look at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar! We’ll be back on Monday with a FULL REVIEW!

Newly open in The Landing of what will become Disney Springs, the new HANGAR is the latest Downtown Disney HANGOUT! Then again, maybe “new” isn’t really the word for it…

You see, as the story goes, Jock Lindsey — a frequently trusted pilot for Indiana Jones — discovered this waterfront property in 1938 as he flew with Indiana over Florida on the hunt for the Fountain of Youth.

He returned to the area in the 1940s to make his home, setting up a small business — Jock Lindsey’s “Air Tours” — offering scenic plane tours of the state. And now we are left with the Hangar that he also used to host his friends in the Society of Explorers and Adventurers, of which Jock, too, was a member.

DFB Reader Questions Answered: Where Can I Get a Free Counter Service Refill in the Parks?

We’re tackling another question from the DFB Reader mailbag today! Our reader asks:

Which counter service locations in Walt Disney World have self serve kiosks offering free refills?

This is an especially good question from a budget perspective. Since the Resort Refillable Mugs can’t be used in the parks, you might want to know where you can go to get more than one drink from the soda fountain. Let’s check out a couple of spots where you can grab a drink when you’re extra thirsty.

Disney Counter-Service Halloween Drink Cup

Just note: you do need to purchase a drink from these locations before filling up your cup again and again! Also, our DFB team members have checked with cast members at each location to confirm that refills are, indeed, allowed during your meal at the restaurant. [Read more…]
