Recently the confirmation of Indiana Jones Five has only added fuel to the fire of speculation that Disney is looking to expand their franchise by increasingly focusing on Dr. Jones in their marketing. There was a confirmation of sorts this week with the news that an Indiana Jones themed bar will be debuting at Downtown disney at  Walt Disney World. The official press release is here:

Tucked in between the soon-to-be-expanded Paradiso 37 and recently opened BOATHOUSE restaurant, a new Disney owned and operated Food & Beverage offering has been taking shape. Today, I’m thrilled to share more details on this aviation-themed lounge, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar. 

With a prime location along Lake Buena Vista and seating for 150, the venue will feature unique cocktails – such as the “Hovito Mojito” with Barsol Quebranta Pisco, fresh lime juice and simple syrup – and small plates such as “Air Pirates Everything Pretzels” with house-made mustard and beer cheese fondue.

The design team has gone to great lengths to ensure that every element – from the propeller-based ceiling fans and diving bell “booth” to the “Rolling Boulder Meatballs” on the menu – fits within the storyline.

And just what is that story? Ardent fans of the “Indiana Jones” films may recognize Jock Lindsey as Indy’s frequent pilot; he’s also the owner of a pet snake named Reggie – an important detail, trust me on this! In the main room, guests will discover an expansive bar, aviation decor filling the room, vintage travel posters covering the walls and correspondence between Jock, Indy and their fellow adventurers on display. Guests can eat, drink and be merry outside as well, in Jocks’ old steamboat, now in permanent dry dock and aptly named “Reggie;” and in nearby seating on the adjacent deck."

The blog also posted two pieces of extremely interesting concept art for the bar, which I will post here below:

Our take: I find the inclusion of a new Indiana jones attraction at Disney World to be a very encouraging sign. Especially one that gives a semi-obscure character from the first film the llimelight. It indicates a willingness by Disney to expand on their IP in a fresh and interesting way. I do believe that Disney still has many plans for Indiana Jones, and this may be the first step in a new revival. The news has already garnered a lot of interest and publicity, meaning there is still a huge interest in Indiana Jones.

Let us know what you think in the comments!
