Walt Disney World is known for its four theme parks, but what about all the places that stay open past Park closing?
Whether you’re leaving the park at 8PM or midnight, there are quite a few spots that you can continue the fun if you’re 21 and up! Some are pretty well-known (like Splitsville), but others are on the more hidden side and are worth checking out!
We Bet You Don’t Know About These Late Night Spots in Disney World
Enchanted Rose Lounge
Did you know that there are themed lounges in the Resorts of Disney World? Even if you’re not staying at Disney, these can be worth visiting! Over at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, one of the newest bars is Enchanted Rose Lounge themed after Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
If you’re a seasoned Grand Floridian Disney fan, you might remember that this lounge replaced Mizner’s Lounge. Disney made the bar much bigger and elegant, even adding a chandelier that is meant to mimic Belle’s iconic yellow dress.
There are four different areas in the lounge, one featuring the main bar, another themed like Belle’s library, another designed like a corridor in the Beast’s castle, and an outdoor patio.
You can expect to find a drink menu to match the upscale feel to the lounge too!
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
Disney Springs is home to quite a few late-night spots, but there might still be a few that are lesser-known. Though, this probably isn’t one of them. But, the theming makes it a bar we just can’t go without covering! Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is located at The Landing (near Gideon’s Bakehouse and The Boathouse) and is themed after Indiana Jones.
This highly-themed bar transports you back to the 1940s into Indy’s pilot friend’s hangar. If you’ve seen Raiders of the Lost Ark, you might remember Jock Lindsey (pilot and owner of a pet snake) — this is his!
The bar features tons of different artifacts, spare airplane parts, salvaged equipment, and dusty mementos and, if you look closely, you might recognize some hidden details! When it comes to the menu, you’ll find specialty-themed cocktails, like the Fountain of Youth and The Scottish Professor. Plus, they also have some small bites!
Hangar Bar is family-friendly, so you can bring your kiddos, grab a drink, and search for all the fun hidden details together!
Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar
Just before you get on the bridge to head from The Landing to West Side, there’s a staircase that will take you down to this hidden lounge. And once you find it, you’ll walk into a 1920’s speakeasy!
The menu features prohibition-era cocktails and has the largest selection of rums and scotches that you’ll find at Disney Springs. They also serve full Italian entrees here so you can get a whole meal if you’d like!
The seating area is a bit on the smaller side, so Disney does recommend getting a reservation if you’re hoping to grab a drink (or a bite) here.
BoardWalk Pizza Window
Over at Disney’s BoardWalk, there are more hidden gems! If you’re craving a late-night pizza run, you can satisfy that at the BoardWalk Pizza Window. This little pizza shop doesn’t close until midnight, so you can get your after-hours bite here!
The pizza window serves up slices of pizza or a whole pie so you can share with a group or keep it all to yourself (how we prefer to do it).
They also serve up salads, soft drinks, sangria, and even some treats! If you’re staying at Disney’s BoardWalk or need a bite as you head out of EPCOT, this is a great place to stop!
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto
If you’ve never been to Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, this is a place to add to your next visit. It’s a lesser-known bar because it is kind of hidden in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort! It’s kind of a hole in the wall and is located past Captain Cook’s (the Quick Service restaurant) just before you reach the door that takes you outside.
But this place is a hidden gem. It is a highly themed bar based on the head trader (Trader Sam) on Jungle Cruise at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. If you remember one thing about Jungle Cruise, it’s probably the bad jokes and, rest assured, those continue here!
When you walk in you’ll set foot into a tropical paradise with skippers to serve you the latest island fare. Each drink is highly themed, and they don’t just deliver drinks to your table here; order specific drinks, and the whole bar gets involved in whatever you’ve ordered for the night!
If you haven’t picked up on it yet, Trader Sam’s is a fun place to go if you’re looking for high energy and lots of laughs to finish off your night.
Now, this enchanted tiki bar isn’t very large so expect to have a bit of a wait to get in. And, the highly themed atmosphere and drinks do come at a cost so expect to pay a pretty penny for your cocktail. But, if you want to make it a bit cheaper, you can always pass on the souvenir mugs. (Also note: Trader Sam’s hasn’t reopened yet… but when it does, it’s a must do!)
Here you can sip on cocktails, much on popcorn, and request any song you can think of to hear the pianists perform! We’ve been here quite a few times and there’s rarely a song that these duelers don’t know. Oh, and this is a great spot to go if you’re hoping to embarrass your friends on their birthday (you’ll just have to see)!
Jellyrolls does have a cover fee to get in so keep that in mind when you’re planning your night at Disney World. (This is another spot that’s yet to reopen, but add it to your list for when it does!)
Atlantic Dance Hall
Just across the way from Jellyrolls is another nighttime spot — Atlantic Dance Club. At the dance hall, you can dance the night away to the top hits from the ’80s, ’90s, and even some current ones!
You’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time with the art deco theming…
…and if you need a break from dancing, you can step out on the balcony and overlook Crescent Lake lit up at night. Plus, there’s no cover here so you can dance your little heart out at no cost! (Reopening August 8!)
And, this place is a sports fan’s dream. Inside, you’ll find over 100 TVs and a 108 square foot TV wall. Plus, you don’t even have to miss a play when you go to the bathroom — there are TVs in there, too!
The menu features pub-style eats and drinks. And, between bites, you can check out the Sports Central Studio that is inside and catch some side-line entertainment. You might even spot a pro athlete in there!
If you’re planning to visit for a big game, you’ll want to arrive early because, even with over 100 TVs, this place can fill up fast.
ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill
There’s even another spot to watch sports at Disney World! ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill is located at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and is a great place to catch a late-night game, grab a beer, and a bite to eat.
You’ll be watching the game on widescreen HDTVs, and you can stop by the SportsCenter desk for a photo op!
You will need to have a valid ticket for the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in order to grab a seat here.
