A Visit to Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, located between Paradiso 37 and The BOATHOUSE Restaurants at Disney Springs, opened yesterday with much confetti, drinks, delicious food, and good times!

With indoor and outdoor seating available, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar bar is a 150-seat lounge open to those of all ages that is bursting at the seams with mementos from Jock’s Travels.

While the details are largely influenced by the Indiana Jones series, if you look closely enough you can find Star Wars, Marvel, and even the former Adventurers Club nods in the decor.

So who is Jock Lindsey?

His name may sound familiar, because he often served as a frequent pilot to Indiana Jones.

In the 1940’s Jock made a home at this waterfront property after discovering this charming little town while flying Indiana Jones over the Sunshine State in search of the elusive Fountain of Youth in 1938. As a member of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers, Jock often welcomed his globetrotting friends to his hangar for a drink and fun times.

There are four cocktails that feature either a specialty glass or stirrer.

While these glasses are featured on the menu, they aren’t available at the bar yet. The drinks were delicious, but we’ll have to go back for another ‘research’ visit for photos. It’s a hard life…

The food at Jock Lindsey’s features excotic small plates and more substantial appetizers that are perfect for sharing.

I tried Dr. Elsa’s She-Deviled Eggs, and they feature eggs that have been brined in beet juice with lump crab filling. The texture of the eggs, at first, is really different due to the crab, but the wasabi and beet tones are super tasty!

The “Good” Dates feature goat cheese-stuffed dates with Marcona almonds nestled on a pile of pickled veggies.

The Snack of Ra gives a taste of Africa with salads and dips served with injera (bread) and naan crisps. This is a rather large plate that is perfect for sharing!

I really loved how the pretzels come in a whimsical airplane set-up with house-made mustard and beer-cheese fondue.

My absolute favorite dish was the Rolling Boulder Sliders with three spice meatballs on mini-buns with yogurt sauce. Watch out though, because they have quite a kick!

You can also enjoy the Brody Brats, a pile of grilled bratwurst with mustard, pickles, and pickled cabbage.

And “Squid! Why’d It Have to Be Squid” is fried calamari flatbread with spicy harissa that has a really exotic look.

We really had a great time at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, and I will definitely be returning!

Jock Lindsey’s opens daily at 11:30 am, and when you check in make sure that you give them your cell phone number because they are the first location at Walt Disney World to use a new system of alerting you of estimated wait times and availability of seating.

A Huge Thanks to Tom and WDWNT for letting me take pictures of their food!!!

Khan Academy Launches Pixar In A Box



Khan Academy launches Pixar in a Box, a behind-the-scenes look at

Pixar Animation Studios’ creative process

Free online curriculum shows how Pixar filmmakers use science, technology, engineering, art and math to create movie magic 


Have you ever wondered how the creative process works at Pixar? Khan Academy has launched Pixar in a Box – a new online resource that explores the academic concepts behind Pixar Animation Studios’ creative process.

Khan Academy Pixar in A Box

This free resource is available to students of all ages, and through a series of video lessons, interactive exercises, and hands-on activities, students will discover how the academic concepts they learn in school enable Pixar filmmakers to create new worlds, animate unique characters and tell stories through animation.

“Our mission at Khan Academy is a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere,” said Sal Khan, Founder and CEO of the not-for-profit Khan Academy. “Sparking student interest in math and other academic fields is a key part of that, and we’re delighted to collaborate with Pixar to achieve this goal. Pixar in a Box gives students a new way to engage with key academic concepts and see how creative these concepts can be.”

Students can access Pixar in a Box and learn:

· How combinatorics are used to create crowds, like the swarm of robots in WALLŸE.

· How parabolas are used to model environments, like the forest in Brave.

· How weighted averages are used to create characters, like Buzz Lightyear and Woody.

· How linear and cubic interpolation are used to animate characters.

· How trigonometry is used to create the worlds in which Pixar stories take place.

· How simultaneous equations are used to paint all of Pixar’s images.

“Learning makes us beginners again,” said Ed Catmull, President of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios.  “In my experience, creativity involves missteps and imperfections, which is one more reason it is important for every one of us to keep learning – in order to remain flexible and keep our brains nimble.   By working with Khan Academy on Pixar in a Box, we hope to encourage the excitement of learning and creative thinking for middle and high school students and to provide the tools to do it.”

“For years, we’ve heard from teachers at every grade level interested in creating animation-based curricula,” said Elyse Klaidman, Director, Pixar University and Archives.  “We’ve wanted to provide free online resources for them, and Pixar in a Box makes that dream a reality. We hope that it not only gives students a behind-the-scenes look at how our movies are made but also gets them excited about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) concepts.”

I can’t wait to show Zoe Khan Academy’s Pixar in a Box program! I think that she is going to absolutely flip her lid!!!

All Pixar in a Box resources are available free of charge at PixarInABox.org. The site will be updated as additional lessons become available.
