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 decor, 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, The Fountain of Youth, and Antidote. 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, Adobo Chicken Tacos and Margherita Flatbread. We really enjoyed all of our choices but my favorite was the Margherita Flatbread. It's hard to go wrong with fresh mozzarella and balsamic glaze. 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.

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 December and tried the holiday special C9 Light Deviled Eggs. They were very tasty and festive!

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

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
