Disney World Is Opening an Indiana Jones Bar; Presumably Won’t Burn Down Every Night



I feel like an opportunity has been missed here.

Look, if I tell you Disney World has opened an Indiana Jones-themed bar, what do you imagine? A replica of Marion’s establishment, perhaps? Or, in a bit of wink-wink franchise synergy, Temple of Doom‘s Club Obi-Wan?

Not happening. Instead, you get “Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.” Yes, the seaplane pilot with the pet snake gets a massive aviation-themed area with snacks like “Rolling Boulder Meatballs.” No snake surprise? Look, if they don’t serve red Jell-O in replica monkey heads for dessert, we are talking serious missed opportunity. But I’ll settle for some kind of spicy dip that features the description “It’ll melt your face off!”
