Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar


I love a restaurant with a good theme and if you ask me, Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar has a great theme! This dive bar is set in a 1940s style airplane hangar and has a great backstory. You might be thinking "Jock Lindsey...that name sounds familiar." Fans of a little movie called Raiders of the Lost Ark will recognize Jock Lindsey as the sidekick and pilot to none other than Indiana Jones.

As shared on the official page for the restaurant, the backstory of Jock Lindsey's is as follows: The two globetrotters (Lindsey and Jones) stumbled on Disney Springs in 1938 while chasing down a mythology-based tip in central Florida. Attracted to the town's natural springs and lush terrain, Jock bought some waterfront property and eventually settled down, piloting seaplane tours across the Sunshine State. Jock eventually built an airplane hangar, air tower and runway, and invited fellow members of The Society of Explorers and Adventurers to pay him a visit. His home base soon became a popular stopover and watering hole for world travelers and locals alike. And that's how Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar was born. Isn't that a neat backstory?!

Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar is located at The Landing at Disney Springs. Make sure to check the My Disney Experience app for operating hours and the most up to date menu. They serve beer, wine and signature libations, as well as a variety of appetizers, tacos and flatbreads. Non-alcoholic specialty drinks are also available. Happy Hour specials are currently available Monday-Friday 12pm-3pm.

I love anything vintage so I could spend hours here just taking in all the vintage aviation ambience of the bar. There's a ton of neat memorabilia and some really unique seating areas like the diving bell booth and outdoor seating on the old steamboat named after Jock's pet snake, Reggie. In addition to some great d├ęcor, Jock Lindsey's also has some great food and drinks.

The signature libations, with and without alcohol, have some really fun names like Reggie's Revenge, Fountain of Youth, and Cool-headed Monkey. I like to try a new drink each time I visit and so far I have been very happy with my choices.

On our recent visit, we ordered a few small plates to share. We went with the Snakebite Sliders (and added an extra slider to the order), Nona's Home-style Meatballs and Air Pirate's Cargo Loaded Pretzel. The meatballs were outstanding and I usually don't like meatballs so that's saying a lot! The pretzel and the sliders were delicious, as always. I've ordered the Snakebite Sliders on several visits to Jock Lindsey's now and I've enjoyed them every time. Sliders are just great bar food. The Margherita Flatbread is also another great choice on the menu. It's hard to go wrong with fresh mozzarella and balsamic glaze.

If you love Jock Lindsey's, make sure to visit during the holiday season when it transforms into Jock Lindsey's HOLIDAY Bar. You'll see a full holiday makeover with tons of Christmas decorations and holiday specialties added to the menu! We visited last November and tried the holiday special Hot Chocolate Grail Flight and Post-Flight "Milk" and Cookies. They were very tasty and festive! I was in love with the "you have chosen wisely" on the flight board! Such a great nod to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Top 10 Must Do's at Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris, formerly known as Euro Disney, opened on April 12, 1992. When traveling to different Disney parks, it's hard not to compare it to Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida. Each park is unique in it's own way. With so many wonderful attractions, it was a little difficult to come up with a Top 10 list. I would have picked "it's a small world", but that was closed when we were visiting. Here are my Top 10 things to do at Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris: 10. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril, or Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril in French, is a roller coaster attraction that travels up to 59 feet. It does go through an inversion and travels up to the speed of 36 mph. The attraction is on the shorter side but it was fun to experience this unique attraction. 9. Alice’s Curious Labyrinth Alice's Curious Labyrinth is a maze attraction in Fantasyland. The goal is to reach the castle of

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne
