Every year, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs gets a Disney-sized makeover to celebrate the Christmas season. The decorations at the adventure-themed bar are so extensive, they could be considered an overlay — and the venue even gets a new name for the occasion: Jock Lindsey’s Holidays Bar.
And of course, Jock Lindsey’s isn’t the only venue that gets the Christmas treatment at Disney Springs this time of year. We just did a photo tour of this year’s Christmas Tree Stroll — a slightly different socially distanced version of the Springs’ usual Christmas Tree Trail. That post includes photos of all 12 trees that are featured this year.
In the same vein, we thought it would be fun to head over to Jock Lindsey’s too, and snap some photos there so you can see all of the bar’s holiday goodness. If you’re taking a cruise out of Port Canaveral during the holiday season, Disney’s Christmas decorations are a sight to see and it’s worth the pre- or post-cruise time.
This sign welcomes all to Jock Lindsey’s Holidays Bar, and is a very clear sign of what’s to come inside!
Massive garlands filled with lights and ornaments criss-cross the space, bringing a more intimate feeling to the bar by creating a lower “ceiling” of sorts.
Of course, Jock Lindsey was Indiana Jones’ pilot, so it would be surprising if planes weren’t also included in the venue’s Christmas decor.
Here’s another shot of the garland — there are lots of different colors throughout the space.
We love the juxtaposition of the bar’s usual decorations behind and mixed with the Christmas decorations. In theory, some might say that wouldn’t work too well. But it’s Disney, so of course, they made it look seamless and beautiful.
Here’s a wide shot of the area just behind the bar. There’s always something interesting to look at in a Disney bar! We can’t help but think of Nomad Lounge (in Animal Kingdom) and Trader Sam’s (at the Polynesian Resort) when we pay a visit to Jock Lindsey’s — and we love it.
Ornaments, garland, bows, and even a snowman grace this corner of the venue.
We love how more retro and timeless Christmas decorations were chosen for Jock Lindsey’s. It makes sense since Raiders of the Lost Ark (the first Indiana Jones movie, and the one in which Jock Lindsey appeared) was set in 1936, and released in 1981.
Here’s another photo behind the bar. This may be our favorite spot in the bar — at least during Christmastime!
Disney is so good at creating immersive stories, that sitting here you might forget that Jock Lindsey was just a movie character — not a real, historical pilot.
We could certainly spend many a night during the holiday season lost in our own thoughts and the world of Indiana Jones at this bar. And in keeping with the theme, of course Christmasy light bites and cocktails are offered on the menu.
Drink highlights include Jock’s Holiday Nog, the White Christmas Margarita, and a Santa Hat Mojito. Food items include the Holiday Caprese Wreath, Ugly “Sweeter” Bread, Drummer Boy Braised Lamb with Truffle, and Jingle Bell Pops.
Lastly, let’s head out to the outdoor seating area, which also features garland outfitted with lights, ornaments, and photos from Jock’s adventures.
We hope you enjoyed our photo tour of Jock Lindsey’s Holidays Bar.
