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.
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.
On the backside of the bar is the at-the-bar seating area. Guests can also take a seat at one of the bar stools along the water with a nice view of the other side of the soon to be renamed, Disney Springs.
Just as large as the bar is a relaxing seating area. There are several lounge chairs, comfortable cushioned wicker chairs and tables under a large wooden canopy with white lights.
While sitting back, relaxing and sipping a refreshing drink, guests can enjoy live music. Sunday through Thursday, 2:30 pm to 10:30 pm, and on Friday and Saturday, 12:30 pm to 10:30 pm live music can be heard.
The bars decor highlights the locally grown fruits of Florida, such as limes and oranges. You can even see baskets of fresh lemons and limes at the bar.
The menu consists of margaritas, frozen drinks, local Florida craft beers, Florida fruit wines and nuts. From the decor, you can tell the focus is on the fresh, local ingredients.

We tried the Habanero Lime Margarita – Patron Silver Tequila, Habanero Lime, fresh lime juice and Florida Sugar Cane simple syrup.
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.
Even though the menu lists cocktails, beers and fruit wines, other drinks can be made. Various liquors and liqueurs are stocked behind the bar for guests that prefer something else.
Drinks are served on really nice, thick coasters. They make a nice souvenir!
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.
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 .
