Indiana Jones Themed Bar To Open At Disney Springs

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Yesterday Disney announced that they would be constructing an Indiana Jones themed bar to feature at Disney Downtown (set to be renamed Disney Springs). The Bar set to be called Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is under construction on the waterfront between the new Boathouse and the Paradiso 37 restaurants in The Landing section of the entertainment complex.

The 150-seat establishment is named after Indiana Jones’ pilot and will have an aviation theme. Guests will see vintage travel posters, propeller-like ceiling fans and a diving bell booth.

According to wikipedia Jock Lindsey was an American freelance pilot. Lindsey cut his teeth as a stunt pilot performing in Midwest airshows and relocated to Venezuela after a rumored flight-related tragedy. He frequently was hired by Indiana Jones to fly the archaeologist to remote parts of the world. Easygoing and affable, Lindsey notably butted heads with Jones on one subject: his pet snake, Reggie.

On  the menu you can expect to order “Rolling Boulder Meatballs” and “Air Pirates Everything Pretzels” with mustard and beer-cheese fondue. Cocktails will include “Hovito Mojito.” There will be outdoor seating on Jock’s steamboat, facing Lake Buena Vista.

In the main room, guests will discover an expansive bar, aviation decor filling the room, vintage travel posters covering the walls and correspondence between Jock, Indy and their fellow adventurers on display. Guests can eat, drink and be merry outside as well, in Jocks’ old steamboat, now in permanent dry dock and aptly named “Reggie;” and in nearby seating on the adjacent deck.

Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is set to open this fall and from the reaction on the internet its going to be popular.

Smiles included…

First Pictures of Disney Downtown Development

The Disney blog has just released some stunning new pictures of Disney’s new “Hyperion Wharf” which will be the new name for Pleasure Island.

The 120 acre complex will have new restaurants, shopping and entertainment experiences added to give the area a more modern feel.

The district will come to life with a nostalgic yet modern take on an early 20th century port city and amusement pier. By day, stylish boutiques and innovative restaurants will draw you in and by night, thousands of lights will transform the area into an electric wonderland.

Building work has already started and is due for completion in 2013.

I think you’ll agree these images are pretty impressive and attraction tickets .info can’t wait for 2013.

Disney also mention further alterations to their Downtown area including:

Remodelling The Lego Imagination Centre  from January to April 2011. When completed, the store will stand at nearly 3,500 square feet.

The AMC Theatres are adding new digital technology, a Concession Stand of the Future and Florida’s first Fork & Screen Theater.
