The Sand Bar at the Contemporary Resort is one of the strangest pool bars at Walt Disney World. For one thing, it is not all that close to the pool. Second, it’s indoors... well, sort of.

Essentially, Sand Bar consists of a few stools and a wall of glass behind the stools, and that’s pretty much it. What it represents is a way to get out of the Florida afternoon sun while enjoying a drink. That drink will be one of the few selections available from the standard Disney menu. A few food items are available from a walk-up window on the backside of the bar along with a few tables.

It’s hard to recommend the Sand Bar to anyone not staying at the Contemporary since there are many more interesting options along the monorail loop.

Other Recommendations

The burgers are usually served with a generous amount of french fries. The burgers are also better quality than the standard burgers served inside Magic Kingdom.
