Over the years of visiting Walt Disney World, I’ve come to love all of the lounges I’ve visited on property. Actually, I’ve been to all of the favorites that Disney Parks Blog mentions except Enchanted Rose, only because it opened after my last visit. I definitely plan to check it out on my next trip though! Which lounge do you like best? Out of this list, I’d have to say Trader Sam’s tops the list for me. Share yours in the comments.
We recently shared our visit to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, where we highlighted the delicious food and beverages at Sebastian’s Bistro and Banana Cabana. And over at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the newly opened Enchanted Rose lounge has become a must-see for guests. That got us thinking about our favorite lounges at the many resorts at Walt Disney World. Here are just a few that we feel you can’t miss!
Seeking a bit of adventure? Geyser Point Bar & Grill is perfect for those wanting to grab a meal in the great outdoors of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort. Try their amazing Bison Cheeseburger and a refreshing Huckleberry Punch.
Just around the corner at Disney’s Polynesian Villager Resort, Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto has become a guest favorite, due to the many surprises that await them at this tropical hideaway. They have a variety of specialty cocktails, many available in themed tiki mugs to take home. Just don’t anger the goddess Uh-Oa!
Victoria Falls Lounge at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is the perfect “watering hole” for those looking for another way to enjoy the African-inspired resort. Stop by for some Goat Cheese Dip or a Mushroom Flatbread, and pair it with a glass of South African wine.
If you’re looking for something more laid back,try Ale & Compass Lounge at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. The nautical themed nook offers a menu that includes an extensive list of New England and local beers and wine. Perfect with an order of Roasted Buffalo-style Cauliflower or Oven-roasted Oysters.
Or unwind at Disney’s Port Orleans – French Quarter’s Scat Cat’s Club – Lounge. The southern-style jazz lounge offers Louisiana-inspired menu items, including Crawfish Étouffée and Baton Rouge Beignets. And don’t forget a refreshing Southern Hurricane, a New Orleans staple.
