Dockside Margaritas overview

Margaritas are back at the Marketplace in Downtown Disney with today's grand opening of Dockside Margaritas.

The brand new water-side bar and lounge features a wide range of margaritas, frozen drinks, local Florida craft beers, Florida fruit wines, and even a non-alcoholic specialty drink.

Dockside Margaritas replaces the old Captain Jacks Margarita bar with more seating, including both a lounge area, and bar counter area - both with views of the village lake. There is also a quick service pickup window if you prefer to get the drinks without the full bar service.

Anything on the menu looks to be a safe bet, but our pick was the Patron Anejo Margaritas, which you can see pictured above -  the perfect refreshing margarita for a hot Florida day. A nice touch with the bar service is a pre-drink palette cleaning spring water.


Live music takes place 2:30 to 10:30pm on Sunday through Thursday, and 12:30 to 10:30pm on Friday and Saturday. Operating hours are 12pm to 10:30pm Sunday through Thursday, and 12pm to 11pm Friday and Saturday.


Dockside Margaritas joins the ever-growing list of new venues opening as part of the Disney Springs redevelopment of Downtown Disney. Most recently, The BOATHOUSE opened in The Landing, offering high-end signature dining and a water-side bar and lounge.

Looks awesome. I love that they are using the dynamics of the Waterfront to their advantage.

Nope. But you can find her at Polar Pub at Blizzard Beach (depending on the day of course). Tried this Friday night. Pains me to say it, because I have friends working there, but beautiful space, great service ... but a $13 margarita should not taste like commercial sour mix. I'd say stick to beer--also overpriced even by WDW standards--but not worth the hassle of parking.

Looking at the paint scheme of this place makes me wonder if there are plans to repaint the rest of marketplace with a different color scheme? The dark tones of the margarita bar and the bright colors of WOD in the background seem to clash.

Wow! A huge improvement. They're doing a really good job with Disney Springs. So many things they're doing seems to be about making it come across as more inviting, and IMO, it works.

Not too sure about Erin ..... I keep in touch with one of the CM's who used to work at the old Marg Bar.... I got in touch with him the other day and he tells me none of the old gang is there, I hope he is wrong !!!! That would make me sad. :(

Wow - that looks comfortable. Also faces the sunset from the backside seating.

Does anyone know if Erin will be coming back? She makes absolutely the best margaritas we have ever had!

Happy to see they're carrying the Florida winery fruit wines too, I love those and that kind of adds to the authentic "Florida" theming.

i second that. i liked the little places like captain jack's back a couple years ago. hope this one fits in. for what it's worth captain jack's would set you up with a pretty decent margarita with a little kick to it. especially compared to most other places.

Here's to hoping that the Jai Alai is on tap!
