There’s always so much to do at Disney Springs.
You can grab a drink, do some shopping, and try some tasty cookies. There are so many options that sometimes, it’s hard to decide! So we asked YOU, our DFB readers, where we can find the best spots in Disney Springs. Here’s what you said!
Best Spot For Live Entertainment: Raglan Road Irish Pub
You were all overwhelmingly in favor of Raglan Road Irish Pub! For many of you, this one was a no-brainer. One reader said it was her “first and only choice.” We have to agree that sitting by the patio stage at night listening to the live Irish music is a LOT of fun.
The 12PM-6PM Happy Hour doesn’t hurt, either! Raglan Road is also hosting a St. Patrick’s Day festival this year that we can’t wait to check out.
Runner-Up: The Edison
A lot of our readers picked The Edison! Before the closure last year, the Edison would transform at 10PM every night, with a full live band, dancers, and even aerialists suspended from the ceiling.
Now, live entertainment comes in the form of a quieter solo or trio act. But when we visited, we still enjoyed the atmosphere — even if it was a little different.
Best Spot To Grab A Sugary Treat: Ghirardelli Soda Fountain
This classic dessert spot in Disney Springs boasts unique options like the Strike It Rich Butterscotch Hot Fudge Sundae or the World Famous Hot Fudge Sundae. They also serve shakes, ice cream, and hot cocoa.
Runner-Up: Gideon’s Bakehouse
Gideon’s Bakehouse was surprisingly popular among our readers considering how new it is! But you were already sharing your love for this dessert spot, and trust us. We GET it.
We’ve tried cookies, cakes, and more from here, and it’s typically so good. One reader specified that they picked Ghirardelli over Gideon’s ONLY because they hadn’t tried Gideon’s yet. Looks like the OG Springs fan favorite has some competition here!
Best Place For A drink: Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
This was also a pretty unanimous decision, and a lot of our readers cited the fun atmosphere and cool theming of this lounge.
We love to grab a sip at this spot — plus, Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar is such a fun seasonal touch.
Runner-up: Wine Bar George
This wine bar offers over 130 choices by the ounce, bottle, or glass — so lots of options for our wine-lovers out there! There are also some fantastic small plates and shareable entrees.
We really like Wine Bar George. In fact, we think it’s practically perfect. If you love wine and a comfortable atmosphere, it’s a must-do.
Best Quick Service Restaurant: Chicken Guy!
Chicken Guy! is headed by Guy Fieri and known for its 22 different sauces, like the Donkey Sauce, Wasabi Honey, and Curry Mayo.
It’s one of Disney Springs’ most popular quick-service picks, and we love it too! It’s well-priced and full of flavor.
Runner-Up: The Polite Pig
The Polite Pig is all about local Florida flavor. It serves “modern” BBQ as well as shareables like the Hop Salt Pretzel and the Slider Trio.
You can almost always catch a whiff of good cookin’ walking by here. But the Chicken Guy vs. Polite Pig question apparently causes some problems: one reader said “this one starts family arguments!”
Best Table Service Restaurant: The BOATHOUSE
At The BOATHOUSE, you can dine on the lake and chow down on steaks, chops, and seafood. It is a signature restaurant, though, so it’s a bit pricier than some other options around Springs.
Guests can also take a ride on the Amphicars — cars that “drive” on water — on the lake outside!
Runner-Up: Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’
Many of you cited the relaxing atmosphere here when choosing your top picks. Both the indoor seating and the open-air patio truly make us feel right at home. Plus, one reader insisted that “the fried chicken is the best on the planet.”
In addition to lunch and dinner, Chef Art’s also serves weekend brunch! Biscuits, Hush Puppy Benedicts, and Fried Chicken & Doughnuts make for ultimate comfort food.
Best Spot Overall: World of Disney
World of Disney won by a landslide for the best spot overall in Disney Springs. It’s a great way to get a piece of the parks while at Springs. A few of our readers even mentioned the Stitch on top of the building that sprays water! He really can make a shopping experience memorable.
Those are all the best spots at Disney Springs, according to YOU! Do you agree or disagree with this list? As always, stay tuned to DFB for more Disney parks news!
