Even though Disney Springs is a new kind of marketplace for Disney lovers to dine, shop, and play, the nightlife is still a big draw. Back when this area was called Pleasure Island it was a major hotspot for late night clubs, where every night was New Years Eve. Things have changed, but the Disney Springs nightlife does live on. Here is your guide to all late night fun you can have when the entertainment changes and the best lounges get packed.
Late Night Dining and Entertainment
The Edison is a Disney Springs late night experience that becomes 21 and over after 10:00 pm. The multi level venue offers live entertainment from musicians to DJ’s, Even Flapper style dancers and Aerialists. The popular cuisine and cocktails served at the venue are always available (during normal operating hours).
Enzo’s Hideaway is a nice little underground lounge near Maria and Enzo’s Italian restaurant. The restaurant is themed to an airport, so it is only fitting that this cool lounge takes on the motif of a subway station.
The Forbidden Lounge at Morimoto Asia is actually very welcoming. Some of the most amazing cocktails at Disney Springs are served right here. The sophisticated nightspot is an excellent way to sample some small bites by the Iron Chef and the live music fills the air with mystery and excitement.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is an absolute must do for Indiana Jones fans. This is part bar and part theme park experience as you stumble into a totally immersive dining location themed to Indiana Jones’ pilot Jock Lindsey. Signature cocktails at this establishment are served in awesome collectible glasses and there are props and memorabilia everywhere. This is one of the best hangouts for late night fun at Disney Springs. Just watch out for anything that slithers.
Music and Dancing
Three words: Tapas, Tequila, and Dancing. Paradiso 37 is a dining experience that features the flavors and music of Latin America. Live music starts at 8:00 and if the tequila bar doesn’t get you, the late night menu will.
Raglan Road Irish Pub is one of the most popular restaurants in Disney Springs, despite not being one of the most high profile. Maybe it’s because of the lively pub atmosphere and the folksy Irish flare. Musical acts start as early as 6:00 and Rhythms of Raglan is a one of a kind 90 minute show featuring Irish dancers.
STK Orlando also turns up the heat after dark with a DJ in the main dining room. A carefully curated playlist keeps the vibe and the ambiance just right. The outdoor patio also offers a way to enjoy the Disney Springs nightlife, by soaking up the evening action.
Waterview Park is the perfect place to stop for some dancing as you meander through Disney Springs after dark. Live musical acts and local DJ’s perform from 6:00 to 10:00.
Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea has some special cocktails to keep the Disney Springs nightlife going. Alcoholic coffee and tea specialty drinks include a lengthy menu of tea infused cocktails you have to try.
Vivoli il Gelato is a perfect stop for a late night treat. The extensive list of gelatos and sorbets is irresistible, especially on a hot summer night in Orlando. This location also offers a secret late night menu.
