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.

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

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!
