Hidden Gem Resort Bars of Walt Disney World — Part 2
Walt Disney World has some of the most beautiful and amazingly themed resorts in the world. Each one completely immerses its guests in a different experience. All guests have their favorite resort and reasons why they love those amazing resorts. Maybe you like the pool, the restaurants, or the grounds but just because you have a favorite it shouldn’t stop you from exploring what the others have to offer.
Coronado Springs- Rix Lounge
This upscale nightlife spot is amazing. Not only is it gorgeous inside but their drink menu is to die for. Rix has that trendy lounge feel that you would expect to find at Disney Springs but because it’s at a resort you don’t need to navigate a parking a garage or walk through crowds of tired shoppers. They have some light food offerings so you can definitely have a meal there but their drink list is what will truly impress their guests. Who wouldn’t want to spend a nice evening enjoying a spicy fiesta flatbread paired with a jalapeño margarita? If you are craving something sweet then try their toasted coconut martini with white chocolate and coconut shavings on the rim. Once you visit this place it will definitely become a permanent stop on future trips.
Disney’s Boardwalk- Big River Grille & Brewing Works
This family friendly microbrewery and restaurant is the only working brewpub in Walt Disney World resort. Even as you walk up to the entrance of this place you get to observe their onsite brew master crafting their six beers through large windows. You will get to see firsthand all the work that truly goes into making their beers stand out. I highly recommend their Rocket Red Ale but all of their beers are great in their own way. The best news is that you can sample all six with a beer flight! From the family atmosphere to the classic comfort foods everyone loves, this is a place you shouldn’t skip.
Port Orleans Riverside- River Roost
This deserves the number one spot hands down. River Roost is the home of YeHaa Bob Jackson, a fan favorite of 20 years and truly what makes this place great. River Roost offers traditional southern fare and classic southern cocktails, it really makes you feel like you are in Louisiana. Every week from Wednesday through Saturday nights Yehaa Bob hosts a hilarious piano sing along comedy show. Audience participation is strongly encouraged and its family friendly enough that you can bring the little ones. People of all ages will really enjoy this show and the adults can sit back and enjoy a drink while the kids are completely entertained. You will definitely understand the hype on your first visit and will surely return for years to come.
Top of the World Lounge
One of my personal favorites is the Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower. My husband and I like to go up there and at night and watch the fireworks from Magic Kingdom. There is a great selection of beers and their martinis are great! They also serve some food and snacks. A great bonus is their 7 layer chocolate cake — it’s to die for! However, this lounge is for Disney Vacation Club members and their guests only.
All of the resorts at Disney have great places to dine and drink. A resort hopping day can be just as fun as a day in the parks but with less crowds and no waiting. This list is just a few suggestions of great places you may have yet to try. Do you have any favorite resort bars? As always “cheers” to your next drink in the happiest place on earth.
