Hurray for Hollywood — Disney’s Hollywood Studios, of course! We’re back with What’s New at this ever-changing park, and we’ve got loads of fun merchandise and a little peek at construction! Come along with us!
As Indiana Jones Adventure is down for refurbishment for a few days, Disney has sprinkled in a little magic to ensure that the adventure can still continue. This means that Disneyland is offering guided tours of the attraction’s queue line!
Tours of the Temple of the Forbidden Eye will be taking place TODAY from 12:30 pm to 5:30 pm. But, remember things could always change. SO if you are in the area… hurry up, grab your fedora and head over to Disneyland to check out this unique opportunity!
Helllllllllllo from Disney Springs! We are bringing you a review from one of the most popular spots to grab a light bite and cocktail, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar! We discovered they had some new items join the line-up recently, and we had to swing by to try them out!
First up, we had to sample some of the seasonal libations. The bartender let us know the Old-Fashioned and the Florida Mule tend to stay on the menu, however the top two are swapped out every month or so.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs is an Indiana Jones-inspired bar where creatively-applied movie references are part of everything they do. From our first visit, we loved the cool space and the funky menu.
And Jock’s not just in it for the clever names. Come the holiday season, they’re also in it for the seasonal drinks! During Halloween we loved the spooky drinks and the Poison Apple Glow Cubes that came with them. And for the Christmas season, Jock Lindsey’s offering two holiday libations.
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…]
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.
Are you ready to step in and see what adventures await? [Read more…]
The storyline will revolve around Indiana Jones and his pilot (who serves as the name inspiration for the location), Jock Lindsey. While the menu will feature themed tapas and specialty cocktails, the location itself will be decked out with vintage travel posters, aviation equipment, and even correspondence between Indy and Jock. The opening is anticipated for fall of 2015, and based on a recent visit to the site, progress seems to be coming along very nicely indeed! [Read more…]
Sarah Holodick is back with a great review from the Tables in Wonderland Indiana Jones dinner! Take it away, Sarah!
Matt and I had the opportunity to attend the Tables in Wonderland “Cairo Dinner Show.” The dinner was held on the set of the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular at Hollywood Studios.
Upon arrival we were offered boxes of popcorn, bottled water, beer, or a fruity cocktail. I didn’t catch the name of it, but it was pretty weak. We stuck with [Read more…]
There’s always mysteries surrounding Cairo and this Tables in Wonderland dinner show is no exception. However, we have a few more details to disclose regarding this upcoming event.
We now know that guests will be seated in the first 2-3 rows of the theater. During Act 1 of the show, popcorn and a specialty beverage will be served!
As the Director yells “cut!”, you’ll be invited on stage to take part in a dinner feast in the middle of the Cairo Bazaar street scene. During the meal, a DJ and belly dancer will provide entertainment. The feast concludes and the Director is ready to shoot Act II.
