Last month, I went to Disney World for Christmas. It was a bittersweet trip for me because they’re gutting my favorite park (Hollywood Studios) and turning it into Star Wars land. I like Star Wars, but I love the “Golden Age of Hollywood” and I especially liked having someone teach me how to draw Disney characters all day long.
But we did venture over to Downtown Disney, which is now called “Disney Springs,” so that we could check out Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar. If you’re a fan of Raiders of the Lost Ark, you’ll recognize Jock Lindsey as Indiana Jones’s pilot buddy. Since it was Disney, I figured they would make the bar pretty detailed and full of atmosphere, but this thing was so amazingly detailed that it made the whole freaking trip for me.
We sent our waitress away like three times, while I poured over the menu. It’s setup like a scrapbook, so I had a lot to look at. Tons of tasty drinks and quick eats, which were also delicious. (I think we ordered at least a third of what was on the menu.) This place is decorated from head to toe in “memorabilia” that’s collected in the Hangar Bar over the years. Think of it as a museum for things that Indiana Jones couldn’t actually consider museum-worthy.
And lucky for you I documented everything! But you should really go on your own and experience it yourself if you are able. It’s definitely something any Indiana Jones fan should experience! I’m just dying for them to open up Club Obi Wan and then I’ll probably move to Orlando. Check out the photo album below for more photos from our trip. And if you do get to check this out for yourself, might I suggest snacking on the “Good Dates.”
