Share This!

Well, it’s official, Bongos is closing this summer.

Long a fixture at Walt Disney World, Bongos Cuban Cafe, has been one of TouringPlans readers’ lowest rated restaurants. In our most recent reader surveys, Bongos ranked #192 of the #221 food service locations at Disney World.

Serving Cuban-inspired food such as black bean hummus, BBQ guava ribs, empanadas, and churrasco, Bongos couldn’t keep up when faced with competition from the numerous restaurants that moved into the WDW shopping district during its transition from Downtown Disney to Disney Springs.

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the Bongos locations in Miami and in Hollywood, Florida will also be closing. The WDW location will stop serving in August, 2019. No word yet on what will be replacing Bongos at Disney Springs.
