Dawa Bar

Dawa Bar is a boozy haven in the middle of a very busy part of Animal Kingdom. The bartenders are friendly, the drinks are strong and the ambiance is casual. Drinks are generous, as are the pours of liquor! Many (like me, AJ!) consider the Dawa Bar to be among their most favorite and relaxing spots in Disney World.
