is located on the West Side of Disney Springs. Owned by Gloria and Emilio Estefan, the restaurant presents authentic Cuban cuisine and live music to guests.
And even if you’ve never entered the lively restaurant, you would likely recognize the signature gigantic pineapple that has provided a West Side landmark over the years.
But this longtime Disney Springs dining spot will be closing in August 2019.
At this time, it is not known what will be taking the place of Bongos in Disney Springs, but that’s not the end of the Estefans in central Florida. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Estefan Kitchen will be opening at the Margaritaville Orlando Resort.
According to the Estafans and the Sentinel, the Estefans would like to include a nightclub as they believe that’s “part of the latino experience.”
