Some of our very favorite Disney experiences are those that it seems like very few know about. They are what we consider the hidden gems throughout Walt Disney World’s Parks and Resorts.
So, while we prefer to keep this one a secret, we can’t help but share with Disney Dining readers the very BEST Disney lounge that no one seems to talk about.
Time to Relax
It’s been a long day at the Disney Park. The heat, the crowds, the spinning and twisting attractions… it’s time for relaxation with a cold beverage and a small bite or two to enjoy.
Head on over to one of Walt Disney World’s most stunning Resorts, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort.
While most people drop by for a delicious meal at Whispering Canyon Cafe, a character dining experience at Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White, or to sip by the water at Geyser Point Bar and Grill, we recommend heading to the quiet Territory Lounge.
Located just off of the beautiful Wilderness Lodge Resort lobby, Territory Lounge often goes missed as guests are in awe of the Resort and all its offerings. You won’t want to miss the chance to curl up in this rustic, lodge-like bar filled with cozy warmth.
How to Get There
Not staying at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge? No worries!
Guests are welcome to visit with easy boat access to and from Magic Kingdom Park. Guests can also visit from EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom by simply taking a Wilderness Lodge Resort bus from the Park to the Resort.
To make the Territory Lounge experience even more exciting, Disney is always updating the menu with new bites and sips for guests to enjoy at this little-known lounge. Favorites include the Territory Popcorn Sampler featuring the chef’s take on popcorn with spicy, caramel, sea salt, truffle, and BBQ flavors.
You can’t go wrong with the Artisanal Cheese and Charcuterie, along with the delicious flatbreads, including the Loaded Baked Potato Flatbread and Salmon Run Flatbread. Of course, the show-stopper is the Bacon on the Wire and the Bone and Brie.
The cocktails and beverages at Territory Lounge are exceptional, which is honestly why we find ourselves visiting again and again!
It features cocktails including the National 95, L&C G&T, Orchards Bounty, Orange Spiced Sangria, Timeless Elias, and The Northwoods. It’s hard to pick just one!
We will say our FAVORITE is the Smores Old Fashioned, which is like a campfire experience in a cup with Elijah Craig bourbon, toasted marshmallow syrup, and chocolate bitters garnished with perfectly toasted marshmallows.
Of course, there are plenty of beer and wine selections for whatever your taste buds may be seeking.
A True Must-Do
While the rest of the Disney fandom gets caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Disney Park experience, be sure to carve out some much-needed time in the evening at Territory Lounge for a memorable Disney experience during your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
