Hidden Gem Lounges and Bars at Disney

Walt Disney World is filled with magic and endless fun for everyone. But when the evening comes (or any time of day for that matter) and the adults want to wind down, there are some fabulous lounges and bars at Disney that are perfect for a drink and getting away from the crowds.

Whether you’re staying at a Walt Disney World resort or just hopping over for date night, you are not going to want to miss these hidden gem bars. Luckily for you, you won’t even need a park ticket!

The Edison

The Edison is one of the most interesting restaurants at Disney Springs. During the day The Edison boasts a family friendly atmosphere, but when night falls a transformation happens and the restaurants turns into a bustling bar, complete with a live band, aerialists, and more entertainment.


When it comes to food and drinks, The Edison’s menu is extensive and everyone will find something they love! For food I recommend the DB ‘Clothesline Candied Bacon’ and Electri-Fries for sharing. With a drink menu that serves everything from hand-crafted cocktails to beer and wine by the glass, it can be a little overwhelming to pick just one drink. I love the Samantha Sterling, which is made with Grey Goose vodka, Lillet Rose, lime, watermelon juice and cinnamon cordial. Fun fact about this drink, it is a tribute to the Adventurer's Club, which was a popular themed nightclub in this very spot.

Terralina Crafted Italian

Terralina Crafted Italian has a huge outdoor patio bar (pictured in feature image) and happy hour most nights, Terralina is one of the best deals at Disney Springs. There are monthly specials as well so be sure to check their website for the latest info.


The bartenders are very knowledgeable about each wine and beer on the restaurant's extensive list, so they can help you make a decision. The Cantele Negroamaro Rosato Rosé is one of my favorites. And during happy hour it’s only $5 a glass! For food, you cannot go to Terralina without getting the crispy eggplant fries or the burrata.

Crew’s Cup Lounge

If you’re hanging out at Epcot or Hollywood Studios and are looking for a chill place to escape the theme park hustle and bustle, head over to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort to Crew’s Cup Lounge. This quiet bar serves up some of the best drinks and food at Walt Disney World in a cozy atmosphere.


The menu for drinks and snacks is small but well-curated. You'll find plenty of indulgences like Truffle Mac and Cheese as well as select entrees including hand-cut steaks. For an extravagant date night go for the Chilled Admiral's Tower for Two with Maine Lobster, Snow Crab, Tuna Tartare, Jumbo Shrimp and more.

Steakhouse 71 Lounge

Located just steps away from Magic Kingdom at Disney’s Contemporary Resort (an easy stop on a DIY monorail pub crawl), Steakhouse 71 has a large bar that’s first come, first served, with welcoming bartenders and a plentiful menu. Disney fans will adore the decor. This new Disney restaurant pays homage to Walt Disney World's early years.


Steakhouse 71 has an all-new menu full of modern American classics, some with nods to the 1970's — the early days of Walt Disney World. The Steakhouse 71 Stack Burger is great for sharing as is the Tequila Sunrise Cocktail for Two. Let the magic of Walt Disney World wash over you as you indulge in sharable delights.

Victoria Falls Lounge

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of our favorite resorts to explore, and when you’re done exploring everything there is to do, head over to Victoria Falls Lounge right above Boma at Jambo House. Their specialty cocktails and decent-sized appetizer menu are the perfect way to wrap up a Disney day.


I love the Goat Cheese Dip for something a little different than what you can get at other locations. As for drinks, the bar staff has put together a strong cocktail list, including a few you can only get at the Victoria Falls Lounge. A fan favorite is the Victoria Falls Mist, it’s sweet without tasting like candy, and the use of tangerine liquor is unique.
