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.

Disney’s Polynesian Villager Resort, Trader Sam's Grog Grotto

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. 

Ale & Compass Lounge at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

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.
