The Best Disney World Patios to Drink on This Fall

We’re almost to that sweet spot of the year, the one where it’s absolutely gorgeous outside, and you can sit on a patio in Florida without melting. This, friends, is one of our favorite times of year: patio time!

Time to sit back, relax, and sip on a tasty cocktail and nosh on a satisfying munchie al fresco! And a nice patio is the perfect way to slow down and enjoy a break during a busy Disney vacation.

Here are our favorite Walt Disney World patios to slow down on this fall!

1. Brown Derby Lounge

Attached to the signature Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this is one of our favorite patios year-round! (Yes, we’ll even melt for it in the heat of summer!)

You can order anything off the full restaurant menu while chilling out at Brown Derby Lounge, or choose something from the special Lounge menu with tapas, a charcuterie plate, and fun drinks! We adore the smaller version of the famous Brown Derby Cobb Salad and the martini flight.

2. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

Snakes, why’d it have to be snakes?!

Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is named after Jock Lindsey, Indiana Jones’ pilot in Raiders of the Lost Ark. There are tons of Indiana Jones Easter Eggs hidden around the bar which are fun to hunt for — no whip required. But we love sitting on the patio, half of which is a literal boat called the Reggie (Jock’s pet snake).

Jock Lindsey’s is participating in Disney Springs Wonderfall of Flavors which means for a limited time you can get this beauty to munch on as you sip on one of their specialty cocktails such as a Reggie’s Revenge, German Mechanic, or Scottish Professor.

3. Dahlia Lounge

Sitting atop the new Gran Destino Tower at Coronado Springs — 16 stories up! — is Dahlia Lounge.

Dahlia Lounge has stylish patio seating with a stunning view! (Can you spot the Tower of Terror?) While on top of the World, you can nosh on tapas and small plates and sip on specialty coffees, cocktails, and Spanish wine.

We love the Gran Gin Tonic which is the Tower’s signature cocktail and features house-made saffron-orange syrup.

4. Paddlefish 

Want a rooftop view of Disney Springs? Well, we have a great one for you!

Paddlefish has a fabulous menu, but nothing tops the views! We love grabbing a glass of wine or craft cocktail — and looking out over Disney Springs isn’t half-bad either! Paddlefish often has live music, and pro-tip: follow Paddlefish on Instagram for special deals and events!

5. Nomad Lounge

Where do you go when you need to kick back between Flight of Passage and Festival of The Lion King? Nomad Lounge, of course!

Nomad Lounge is attached to Tiffin’s, and can be found right before you cross the bridge to Pandora. It is a patio oasis that really takes you out of the hustle and bustle of the park for a bit.

We love the Wagyu Beef sliders, Truffle Poutine, and Charcuterie plate (but remember the menu changes up regularly). And as far as cocktails go, might I recommend the Annapurna Zing, Hightower Rocks, or Snow Leopard Salvation? And you can feel good about drinking the Snow Leopard Salvation — it’s made with Snow Leopard vodka which donates part of its proceeds to saving the big cat.

6. Raglan’s Hole in the Wall

Fancy a pint of Guinness and an Irish jig? Then scoot over to Raglan Road at Disney Springs!

Hole in the Wall is the patio bar attached to the main restaurant and has a great selection of beers on tap, including specially crafted Raglan Road brews. They even have a happy hour throughout the week and daily entertainment.

You can also wet your whistle with a great selection of Irish Whiskey, beer flights, signature cocktails, and wine. So grab yourself a pint and get ready to watch a jig!

    1. David, Dahlia Lounge is open 4PM to midnight. Barcelona Lounge is lovely (no patio, though, unless you count the general outdoor seating area that’s adjacent) and opens at 6:30AM for breakfast grab and go items and specialty coffee, if you’re looking for an earlier Gran Destino option.

    2. The Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Coronado Springs makes my top ten list – peaceful water views and delicious small plates. So does the Boat House pier at Disney Springs (best kept secret: full menu, raw bar, and no reservation required.)
