REVIEW – Wasting Away Again at Dockside Margaritas

Share This!

When Disney Springs reopened this past summer, it did so in phases. One of the few establishments that remained shuttered for a good while has reopened recently. If you enjoy a more relaxed pace at Disney Springs you’ll be pleased to hear that Dockside Margaritas is serving up fresh squeezed margaritas once again.

At Disney Springs Marketplace you can grab a seat along the sparkling lake and sip on a fresh-made margarita at Dockside Margaritas. Lounge-style seating is offered next to this outdoor, walk-up bar. Live music is often offered on weekends. The citrus stand theme, lakeside views, and comfortable seating make this a great spot to waste away and slow down.

This outdoor bar is one of the highest rated bars in Disney Springs according to our readers and over 500,000 completed surveys. Dockside Margaritas has a 94% thumbs up rating and is ranked number 38 out of 171 comparable options at Walt Disney World. You can view ratings and information for all Walt Disney World dining locations on our site and in our Lines app.

One of the things we love about Dockside Margaritas is that there is usually a seasonal margarita on the menu. Right now a Black Cherry Margarita is offered, and it is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Fall in Florida is its own season, much different than other regions, often filled with warm temperatures, so a margarita that has some fall flavor to it is perfectly Floridian.

The Watermelon Margarita is one of the most popular options on the menu. It is sweet, but not overly so, making it a refreshing choice. Each margarita is $15.00 – $16.00, which seems steep compared to prices outside the Disney bubble, and even within it. But these margaritas are made to order. There are other cocktails available, as well as beer, wine, and mocktails without alcohol too.
