10 Things To Experience After Dark at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World

If you’re not completely exhausted after a busy day in Walt Disney World’s theme parks, your vacation excitement can continue well into the wee hours at Disney Springs.  Whether you want a quiet, secluded bite with friends in a hidden lounge, an evening of live entertainment, or the chance to show off your moves on the dance floor, Disney Springs has a venue for you!  Here are some of our favorite things to experience at Disney Springs after dark.

10. The Edison

If you haven’t been to The Edison at Disney Springs yet, you really should.  And there’s no better time to pay a visit than when the sun goes down, when this delightfully eclectic locale comes alive with a variety of entertainment including flapper dancing, acrobatics, stilt-walking, live music and even a dance floor complete with DJ.  You’ll love the cocktails and the food here (be prepared for huge portions!), and The Edison is an adults-only space after 10:00 pm nightly.

9. STK Orlando

More than just another steakhouse, STK Orlando is a great upbeat choice for after-dinner fun at Disney Springs.  You’ll love the upscale lounge atmosphere!  Take some creative signature cocktails and add DJs whose playlists will have you partying well into the night, and you have an evening you won’t soon forget.

8. Raglan Road

If you want to channel your inner leprechaun, Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant has all you could wish for.  You probably already know that Raglan Road offers great Irish eats, but did you know that there’s a full calendar of entertainment on offer daily, from 6:00 pm until 1:00 am?  Check online for the details, which include great up-and-coming bands and Irish dancing.

7. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

Indiana Jones fans won’t want to miss Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, which is a wonderfully themed hangout where you can spend hours discovering Indy Easter eggs.  That’s only part of the fun – the unique appetizers and signature cocktails are an attraction unto themselves!  You can even try your hand at the larger-than-life games and buy souvenir cups.

6. Enzo’s Hideaway

We love the chill vibe of this speakeasy located in a secret underground venue.  This is the perfect spot to relax with friends, and enjoy signature cocktails, barrel-aged rums and scotches, and yummy Italian bites.  The prohibition-era theming is the perfect backdrop for your evening, which will be accompanied by live musicians.

5. Morimoto Asia

Did you know there’s a secret lounge at Morimoto Asia?  It’s called the Forbidden Lounge, and you’ll need to access it from a hidden entrance that takes you upstairs.  Once you get to this little-known spot, you’ll enjoy a sophisticated VIP lounge that offers surprisingly reasonably priced wine and cocktails, along with appetizers and live music.  If you’re looking for an intimate, up-scale spot for your evening entertainment, this is a must.


Eating at the BOATHOUSE in Disney Springs is always a culinary treat, but this restaurant is at its best after darkness falls.  You can sit inside and listen to the live band that performs until midnight, or check out the deck bar over the water, which offers unparalleled night-time views of Lake Buena Vista.

3. Paradiso 37

Showing off your Latin dance moves is only part of the fun at Paradiso 37, Taste of the Americas!  You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more vibrant spot for night-time fun at Disney Springs.  Enjoy hours of live Latin music, starting at 8:00 pm and running until 1:30 am, and don’t forget the tequila bar and massive margaritas!  Your favorite munchies are also on offer each night.  So grab your dancing shoes and come on by!

2. DJ Kids Dance Party

Of course, if you’re visiting Walt Disney World with kids, there are child-friendly night-time events too!  Our favorite is the DJ Kids Dance Party, which is a ton of fun.  Nightly from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm, your little ones can get their dance on at the Fountain Stage, with a live DJ who will teach you some pretty cool moves.  Trust us, the energy is contagious, and you may well find yourself joining in the fun!

1. Street Performers

One of our favorite after dark experiences at Disney Springs is simply wandering around enjoying all of the mesmerizing street acts that pop up at night.  You may find live blues, pop and classical music, strolling piano and caroling acts, and even captivating human statues drawing a crowd.  There’s no better way to enjoy everything Disney Springs has to offer than to take a stroll and discover all the street performers for yourself!
