being a big disney fan, i love exploring the in’s and out’s of property. especially challenging myself to find new and unique things to do outside of the parks. so naturally with some of my good friends coming into town over valentine’s weekend, i wanted to show them how to have fun “outside of the parks”. no better way to do that than with a little resort bar monorail hopping.
disney’s polynesian village resort, the grand floridian resort & spa and disney’s contemporary resort have some amazing restaurants and lounges, probably some of the best (in my opinion) on disney property. and i mean what can beat watching the magic kingdom fireworks from the marina of the grand floridian at the end of the night?! not much, that’s for sure.
below are the groups favorite lounges and drinks from the night:
disney’s grand floridian resort & spa: citricos
local small batch palm ridge whiskey carpano antica sweet vermouth
nolet silver sicilian
nolet’s gin, limoncello, bitters and mint
château clarke, listrac-medoc, ‘09
disney’s polynesian village resort: trader sams
reserve and spiced rums, orgeat (almond) syrup, sam’s gorilla grog and hibiscus grenadine
dark & tropical stormy
gosling’s black seal rum, fresh lime juice, ginger beer, and falernum
ace pineapple hard cider
cheers to exploring the “non-traditional” side of disney!
until next time.
