When you are looking for a place with a wide array of dining options and entertainment, Disney Springs is a top choice. However, the massive entertainment complex comes with a reputation of high ticket items when it comes to food. I tend to disagree, and instead suggest a little pre-planning to get the most from your buck. Our brunch crawl provided shareable options, and we can’t forget Happy Hour! From swanky steakhouses to a fun Irish pub, here are our favorite places with must-try happy hours at Disney Springs for your next date night.
We did a full Happy Hour Test Drive on STK and raved about the drinks and bites to be had. Pull up a seat at the bar or high top tables for this unbeatable happy hour, offered Monday-Friday from 3:00-6:30pm. The atmosphere oozes style, and happy hour is a fantastic way to visit the swanky eatery without breaking the bank. First, choose from a list of eleven specialty cocktails at half price ($8 instead of $16) and $10 Justin Cabernet and VieVitè rosé. Second, I highly recommend the Lil'Brg with Truffle Fries ($5), the bone-in filet lollipop ($8) and tuna tartare tacos ($8). Before heading out, double check STK's Happy Hour listing.
Another fantastic happy hour is found at House of Blues. Choose from $2 off all bottled and canned beer, $5.00 HOB Private Label Wines and Well Liquors, and $6.00 Margaritas and Long Island iced tea Monday – Thursday from 11:30am – 5pm. The food options are generous in portion size, so order a few dishes and share with your honey. Wander around the venue and find a huge selection of folk art and music-themed memorabilia and decor. Don't miss the live music outside Monday – Thursday: 5pm, Friday: 6pm, Saturday: 1pm & 6pm, Sunday: 12pm & 5pm.
Currently, House of Blues does not have any food options listed on their Happy Hour website. Please check with your server on any available specials.
Jaleo is a gem and usually pretty easy to get into. Sangria Hour is offered daily 4pm – 6pm in the bar area. You'll select from a number of popular tapas including a 1/2 order of the Pan de Cristal con Tomate or Croquetas de Pollo for only $6. Enjoy draft wine, draught beer and Sangria Roja by the glass for $6.
You know we love a good wine and cheese pairing, and Terralina's happy hour is right up our alley. Head to the Patio Bar for $15 charcuterie boards paired with 1/2 price wines by the glass daily from 4-6pm.
Every Monday-Friday, 12:00 pm -3:00 pm, you can nibble on $8 select appetizers, and sip on $7 wells, select wines, and select draft beers. Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar is the only place for Happy Hour at Disney Springs on our list that is owned and operated by Disney. This adventure-themed bar is fun for date night because of all the details. Even if you're not a major Indiana Jones fan, which is the theme of the bar, you'll enjoy scoping out the props and photos around the entire venue. It's a great spot to kick off happy hour since it has one of the earliest start times of all the places on our list.
Although it is just one hour, the Bites & Boards hour on Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00-3:00 pm is a great time. The food menu is a little limited during this time as it is right when Wine Bar George is making the switch from their brunch menu to their dinner menu. But, it is a great time to grab a table because it is usually not that busy. And, they generally have a wine or two on special during this special hour.
