Whether you want to throw a couple back with characters from The Simpsons or sip on a variety of tequila in Epcot, here are 9 Orlando theme park bars to try:
Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant
Hone of the famous St. Patrick’s Day Party, Raglan Road will transport you to a pub in Ireland with authentic cuisine as well as specialty libations.

Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
Enjoy a drink surrounded by Indiana Jones nostalgia at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs. Step inside the 1940’s-era airplane hangar, the one that was the former home of Jock Lindsey, Indiana Jones’ pilot and learn his interesting backstory. While you’re there enjoy the eclectic cuisine, many of which is named after Indiana Jones’ characters. And of course, take a seat at the bar and enjoy such drinks as Shorty’s Singapore with Plymouth Gin, Heering Cherry Liqueur, Benedictine, Cointreau, fresh lime juice, pineapple juice and grenadine or the German Mechanic with Bavarian Radler with Pauline Hefeweizen and Simply Lemonade.

Sip your margarita (or Florida craft brew or cocktail) while overlooking the clear blue water while listening to live music and enjoying the bar’s snacks like chili cheese dogs, key lime nachos or popcorn.
