Top 10 Ways To Keep Your Night Going At Walt Disney World

10. Fork and Screen Movie Theater at Disney Springs

When the parks close for the evening, head over to Disney Springs to catch the latest action flick, romantic comedy, critical drama, or, hopefully, a Disney movie at the AMC Fork and Screen Movie Theater.  As I have written before, the AMC Fork and Screen Theater brings an entirely new meaning to the phrase “dinner and a movie.”  At this movie theater, you and yours can catch the latest flick from the comfort of oversized, reclining chairs, while enjoying a wide array of gourmet  food options, such as tacos and pizzas, and a signature cocktail.

9. Splitsville

Splitsville draws a large evening crowd.  As its name suggests, Splitsville is primarily a bowling alley, but is also the home of a full-service restaurant and bar.  Splitsville is a great place to take the whole family when you need a break from the action in the parks.  Here, you can grab some bowling shoes and a bowl and try your luck at bowling a 300!  If you come up short, don’t worry.  Everyone is a winner when the menu includes handmade sushi rolls, pizza, and several gluten free items.

8. EPCOT Lounges –La Cava del Tequila, Spice Road Table, and Tutto Gusto

For those of you want to start their evening early, or who aren’t really night owls, the three lounges within EPCOT’s World Showcase provide excellent opportunities for night time fun.  In order to maximize the nightlife potential, I suggest a mini-Drinking Around the World Showcase.  This is especially fun on nights when EPCOT has evening Extra Magic Hours, because there are fewer guests angling for spots in these small spaces.  You could start with a margarita at La Cava, a sangria at Spice Road Table, and a glass of wine or beer at Tutto Gusto.  By this point, World Showcase may be closing so you could keep the party going by heading through the International Gateway right to the Boardwalk.

7.  The Boardwalk – Jelly Rolls and Atlantic Dance Hall

Disney’s BoardWalk is a great place for nightlife at Walt Disney World.  The BoardWalk is as close as you’ll get to the Pleasure Island of yesteryear.  On the BoardWalk, you can stop in at ESPNZone to catch the game and a beer, or sit down to a great burger and a microbrew at the Big River Grille Brewing Works. BoardWalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas needs no explanation, but these frozen concoctions are great for sipping while you watch the nightly entertainment options, including a magician. Drop in to Abracadabar for a full menu of unique and refreshing adult beverages! If you’re looking to cut a rug, then head into the Atlantic Dance Hall, a nightclub where DJs play the hottest songs from the ‘80s, ‘90s, and today.  If you’d rather sing along than dance along, then Jelly Rolls will suit your fancy. This dueling piano bar encourages patrons to sing along to just about any song, and the witty banter between the piano players makes for an evening you won’t forget!

6. House of Blues

For the music lovers visiting Walt Disney World, the House of Blues at Disney Springs is a great place to continue their evening festivities.  The House of Blues is a venue that hosts concerts weekly, sometimes nightly.  If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to catch one of the latest well known acts rock the night away.  To really make this a special night, begin your evening with dinner at Crossroads, the venue’s attached dining room and bar.  The menu has recently been revamped to include many Mexican specialties, but you can still enjoy the signature Cajun cuisine.  Dinner and a concert is a great way to keep the party going on a night in Walt Disney World.

5. Late Show at the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue

The Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue is a Disney icon, and is one of the longest running dinner shows in all of Walt Disney World.  Located at the Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, the curtain goes up on the last show of the evening at 8:30 p.m.  While this might not qualify as nightlife to some, this dinner show can definitely help you kick start your evening with its all-you-can-eat family style BBQ dinner and accompanying all-you-can-drink beverage options that include beer and sangria.  The show is a hootin’ and hollerin’ good time and is sure to put you in a good mood for the rest of your evening.

4.  Kimonos

Located at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Kimonos is not only an award winning Japanese restaurant and sushi bar, but, each night, the lounge transforms into a karaoke bar.  There’s a karaoke stage so you can be the center of attention as you belt out your favorite ‘80s rock ballad or the latest pop hit.  Between songs, be sure to grab some sushi rolls, especially the coconut shrimp roll, and maybe a sake cocktail to give you the liquid courage you need to get up on the stage and sing your heart out.

3. River Roost Lounge at Port Orleans Riverside Resort

While it is true that most, if not all, of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels have a resort lounge in which you can relax after a long day of touring the parks, there’s only one lounge that comes complete with a piano playing, sing-a-long leading entertainer.  YeHaa Bob Jackson rules the River Roost Lounge on Wednesday through Saturday evenings with his signature call of “YeeHaa!”  Whenever my husband and I are in the World, we always grab a seat at the bar in the River Roost Lounge, grab one of the lounge’s signature cocktails, and sing the night away with YeeHaa Bob.

2. Tambu Lounge

The Tambu Lounge, located on the monorail level of the Polynesian Village Resort, is one of my all-time favorite spots on Walt Disney World property to extend the evening.  Saddling up to this bar after a long day in the parks will whisk you away to tropical paradise and get you the best cocktail in the entire World, the Lapu Lapu.  This drink, served in a whole pineapple, is sure to start your evening right or keep going whatever party you’ve started.  The lounge has great views of the Seven Seas Lagoon, but if you’re there early enough in the evening, head down to the Polynesian’s beaches to catch Happily Ever After with a drink in your hand and your toes in the sand.

1. Monorail Crawl

Last, but not least, the Walt Disney World Monorail Crawl, is the ultimate way to keep your night going when at Walt Disney World.  After a long day in the parks, there is nothing better than being chauffeured around the Seven Seas Lagoon by one of the world’s most iconic transportation options.  The lounges in the monorail resorts, Outer Rim in the Contemporary, Tambu Lounge or Trader Sam’s in the Polynesian, and Cítricos Lounge in the Grand Floridian, all stay open until at least midnight.  This allows for plenty of time for you to enjoy a few cocktails as you enjoy the night life of Walt Disney World Resorts.
