We all remember when, a couple of years back, Disney instituted a standard bar and lounge menu for most of the Disney-run restaurants and lounges in Disney World and Disneyland.
While some unique options do still exist at some watering holes — our favorites being these Top 10 Disney World Bars and Lounges — what’s in this little standard menu is pretty much what you’ll have to choose from at several of Disney’s dining establishments.
Recently, several of the options were overhauled or replaced, and we’ve got the updated Disney Bar and Lounge Menu in full for you here, including beers and wines.
But I thought it would be helpful to show you a few of the newer pages from the book so that you can get an idea of what’s now available.
New Additions to the Menu
The updated standard Disney Bar and Lounge Menu starts out strong. I like the throwback to some classic drinks…
…and Disney’s getting fancy with this Godiva flight!
I personally enjoyed this new Pimm’s Punch addition, though I got very different versions the two times I ordered it! The first was fruity, but the second had a very strong Pimm’s pour.
But Disney continues on its (oh-so-trendy) superfruit kick with the addition of the “Forever Young” cocktail.
And speaking of trendy, skinnygirl Bethenny Frankel isn’t just showing up at the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival this year. Her low-cal cocktails are also now on Disney’s menus, like this mojito. Real Housewives, eat your hats!
Another drink that originally debuted at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival (last year), the (non-frozen) Red Stag Lemonade takes up permanent residence on the bar and lounge menu.
So there are a few of the new options now available to guests just about everywhere in Disney World! Are there any that are particularly singing to you?
To see all of the updated options, including beer and wine lists and other drinks that were kept on the menu, check out our fully updated Disney Bar and Lounge Menu here.

I tried the skinny mojito several weeks ago when I was there at the Belle Vue Lounge…yum 🙂 I had my sights set on the the Godiva flight for another night, but we ended up being too full from the Food & Wine fest and just went to the room instead. Oh well…next time!
I guess I’ll just have to start at the top of the list and work my way down! I’ve just discovered Pimm’s at home and will be glad to order it around WDW. Also, can’t wait to try the Manhattan, maybe at one of the retro dining locations?

We saw the new menu during our visit in early October and my mom noticed that prices were not printed on the menu. I like to know the prices before I order!
Summer — So glad you enjoyed the mojito! Godiva flight next time!
liz — Yes indeed! Great plans!
Lisa — Good point!
I got the Forever Young cocktail at the Crew’s Cup last week and it was very tasty. Others in our group got the Truffle Olive Martini and Sangria, which came with lemon and lime slices on the rim to make the glass look like mouse ears. Adorable.
I had Pimm’s Punch as well as some old favorites (Bahama Mama and Lapu Lapu) the other day. All were fabulous!!! I really need to work on relaxing more during these trips.
Sad to see the Antioxidant Cocktail off the menu… We were just there, but with offerings at F&W (and our beloved Cava) didn’t have of the bar drinks. I wonder if it could be made by request?
Jen — Fun!! Thanks for the review!
Erin — Yum!!! Agreed…more relaxing, more cocktails! 😉
resident_hippie — I’ll bet they can still make it for you, as long as they have the ingredients!
At least they are working on the drinks menu. Some of the retro cocktails may be inspired by Mad Men. What they really need to do is make sure the bartenders have plenty of ingredients to make whatever the guest may want and maybe a good bartenders guide. The menus are great for occasional drinkers but the ability to make something new or old should be something for the bar guys to be able to do.
So glad they kept the poblano lime margarita. The perfect mix of sour and heat!
I had the Red Stag Lemonade last night. I learned I do not like Red Stag. It was a little to much like having leather and blocks of cedar in my drink. Ick. But I’m sure it would be right up some other people’s alley. I’m sticking to fruity drinks, lesson learned! I had another drink at the beginning of my trip whose name is escaping me right now (topped with wild berry foam?) and that was perfect for me!
I’ve got to agree with Alan. Yes, it’s awesome that you’re updating your drink menu, but let’s make sure the bartenders can make a decent cocktail, first. I also think that it’s important to maintain a consistency level with these drinks. You mention having had two completely different tasting Pimms… that shouldn’t happen, in my opinion. If you’re going to have a standardized drink menu, you should make sure all of your bartenders know how to make the standardized cocktails that are on it.
That being said, a lot of these sound appealing to me… despite the fact that 9 times outta 10, when I hit one of the bars at the end of the day, all I want is a well mixed Makers & Coke.
I love a good Pimm’s Cup, so the Pimm’s Punch will definitely be on my list of drinks to try next time. Looks like they’re making positive changes to the drink menus – yay!
I saw on the announcement that Disney claims they have an “award winning beer program.” Must be some pretty weak competition. I’ve never seen Terrapin RPA anywhere on property. But I’m looking forward to having it as a fallback around the resort. Guess I have to keep bringing my own beer to the world. Glad I’m staying at riverside. Abita!
Anyone else think its extremely odd that Disney never puts prices on the cocktail menu? What other bar could get away with this? It makes me feel weird asking for the price, so I’d much rather know upfront.
I don’t usually get alcoholic beverages anytime I go out to eat but on my next WDW vacation I intend to get an alcoholic beverage at each table service meal which should be once a day. My upcoming trip is for 16 days 🙂 It’s a good thing I have the TIW card so that I will get a 20% discount on all me drinks!
I agree that it should be standard, even for typical cocktails. I once had an Amaretto Sour at Adventurer’s Club that about knocked me off my feet it was so strong. The next night I had a Blue Glowtini that was weak. Speaking of… Where is the Blue Glowtini???
Nevermind.. LOL. I found it on the full menu.
“Standard bar and lounge menu” – Great, Disney’s pencil pushers at work again. If I want a ‘standard’ dining and drinks experience I will go to Chili’s. Way to destroy value Disney…..
