Disney Drinking – My Favorite Lounge in DCA

One of my favorite things to do as an adult when heading to Disney, is find a nice spot to sit in the afternoon and people watch. Preferably with a beverage in hand, and even better when that beverage has an alcohol base. And hands down my favorite spot to do that at the Disneyland Resort is the Carthay Circle Lounge – in DCA. 

It is literally a throw back to an easier time, as it pays homage to one of Walt Disney’s achievements (premiering Snow White).  When you enter the lounge you are welcomed with oversized chairs and heavy wood furniture, you literally get eaten by the arm chairs at the exterior tables. The lounge itself is small, and set up to keep guest huddled and give the illusion of privacy in a large space.  Again the lighting, plush rugs and great acoustics aid in the full effect, of sitting in a bar in the 40’s enjoying your late afternoon or pre dinner cocktail.


I have visited a few times now and have settled on the Pear Martini as my drink of choice, I could have two or three if time and other customers allowed it, but, it’s always busy and while no one ever pushes you to leave.  You do feel the looks from those waiting to get a seat :).

There are a number of tasty items you can order off the menu. We chose the Queso Fundito and were very pleased when it arrived. Yes that is a batch of melted cheesy goodness!


All in all, if you looking for a nice quiet place to sit, people watch and enjoy an Adult beverage, when next visiting the Disneyland Resort, I would suggest visiting the Carthay Circle Lounge.  It’s not the least expensive place to visit but the ambience, quality of food, drink and service make up for it.

Where do you like to visit when resting at Disneyland?
