This iconic, Disney-owned bar and restaurant is the latest spot to reopen at Disney Springs.
Disney describes the backstory on its website as the following:
How did Indiana Jones’ barnstorming pilot Jock Lindsey end up in Disney Springs?
Fans of Raiders of the Lost Ark can’t forget Indy’s easygoing pilot Jock Lindsey—owner of a pet snake named Reggie—but how did Jock arrive here?
The two globetrotters stumbled on Disney Springs in 1938 while chasing down a mythology-based tip in central Florida. Attracted to the town’s natural springs and lush terrain, Jock bought some waterfront property and eventually settled down, piloting seaplane tours across the fast-growing Sunshine State.
Jock eventually built an airplane hangar, air tower and runway, and invited fellow members of The Society of Explorers and Adventurers to pay him a visit. His home base soon became a popular stopover and watering hole for world travelers and locals alike.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar was born!
Today, thrill-seeking families cross borders and continents to soak up the rugged charm of this artifact-strewn hangar bar, with its spare airplane parts, salvaged equipment and dusty mementos of glory days gone by.
Inside the Magic wants to remind its readers that Disney Springs still requires that all Guests wear facemasks and practice social distancing while on property. Disney has Cast Members and Storm Troopers around the parks to ensure that hose safety measures are in place and Disney-themed facemasks are currently being sold on-property.
Restaurants like Jock Lindsey’s are currently able to accommodate 50% of normal capacity inside and full capacity outside.
