Review: Dockside Margaritas

Dockside Margaritas is the newest dining location to open in Downtown Disney (soon to be called Disney Springs). It’s located on the Marketplace side along the water.

Ambiance

Dockside Margaritas is a beautiful waterfront margarita lounge. As guests approached the bar, they can walk up to one of the two windows to order to-go drinks.

Habanero Lime Margarita

The Habanero Lime Margarita was sour with a slight sweetness and bit of heat from the habanero. The margaritas was light and refreshing. A great drink for sitting by water, relaxing and enjoying some music.

Service

The service was quick and friendly. Guests looking to get their drinks to go could quickly be served and in a minute be on their way. Guests who were seated at the bar could easily get a drink and enjoy the view. Their was a cocktail waitress who was serving all of the guests who were seated. She was extremely friendly and efficient.

Overall

We loved Dockside Margaritas! It’s so much better than the previous margarita stand, Margarita Bar, that used to be located in Downtown Disney Marketplace. The atmosphere is very nice with the waterside bar, lounge chairs to relax in and live music. It’s going to be a must-do for every trip.

Operating hours are Sunday through Thursday, 12 pm to 10:30 pm, and on Friday and Saturday, 12 pm to 11 pm .

What drinks are looking forward to trying most at Dockside Margaritas?
