My first impression of Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs is, “WOW”! In true Disney style, not a single detail was overlooked. Well, maybe one detail, but I’ll get into that later. If you are a fan of the Indiana Jones movie franchise, you will appreciate the unique theming of this new bar & lounge. As casual Indy fans, we agreed to try it out on a date night. Jock Lindsey’s opened in late September, but we waited for the initial melee of Disney bloggers fighting like soccer hooligans to be the first to post photos of it to die down. This left us with two and a half months to build up our expectations. Thankfully, we weren’t disappointed!
For me, the Winter holidays are one of the best times to be in the parks. Other than the Food & Wine Festival, Epcot’s Holidays Around the World is my favorite event at all of Walt Disney World. I love sampling the special foods and learning about Christmas traditions from all over the globe. Epcot provides many opportunities for both while strolling through a beautiful and festively decorated environment. If you’ve never been, that’s alright, I’ve got you covered.
It is hard to accept the cancellation of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights (or The Osborne Lights) at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Millions of people from all over the world have been awash in their glow since the display debuted in 1995. After living on Residential Street for ten years, they moved to their current location, the Streets Of America. Now, a decade later, in 2015, they are being lit for the last time. It’s sad to see the end of a much beloved holiday tradition for so many families. However, I feel truly blessed to have experienced them myself, and to share their beauty with you, my readers.
I love chocolate, but gourmet chocolate is even better! Needless to say, I was excited to investigate the new chocolatier at Disney Springs, The Ganachery. This new shop is located just a few steps from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, where we were going for date night, so we decided to stop in and have a look around. Whether you’re purchasing pricey treats to take home or wish to watch them being made, The Ganachery is well worth exploring.
I’ve waited all year to see the Disney resorts completely decked out in full Yuletide splendor. Finally, the time is here! We’ve spent weeks visiting hotels in the evenings to see all the beautiful trees. Resort-hopping has kept us so busy that I honestly haven’t had time to put up a tree at home. I have to wonder if I need my own tree when I can enjoy these amazing displays whenever I want? Especially when visiting the resort trees involves no cleanup on my part whatsoever! Due to working extended hours, BobaChef hasn’t made Christmas cookies either, but Disney handles that as well. Lots of goodies are for sale at all the Deluxe resorts. A few even feature life-sized gingerbread displays, giving us the spicey smells of someone baking! Not able to make the trip this year? Follow along as I experience Christmas at WDW Resorts.
