 Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar

Enzo’s Hideaway is truly the Hidden Gem of Disney Springs. Located in The Landing, you may even have trouble finding the door to this hidden, Prohibition-era themed restaurant and bar. When you arrive, you will see Enzo’s has tunnels you will pass through under Disney Springs and exudes an imitate, 1920’s ambience, with a fun past. Inspired by Florida’s “rum-running” history, it is themed after a Speakeasy, but don’t worry, you won’t need a password to get in. Enzo’s offers decadent Italian cuisine and specializes in barrel-aged cocktails. If you are looking for Rums and Scotches, Enzo’s has the largest selection at Disney Springs.

Recap

So, whether you are going out for a fun night on the town or a Sunday morning brunch, Disney Springs has every type of dining experience you are looking for. Disney Springs has many more restaurants than the ones listed, but these are the ones you will want to visit if you are limited on time. These top dining spots are the best of the best and venues every foodie will love.

One reminder for you is to make sure you book your dining reservations ahead of time. Many restaurants offer walk up service, but that does not mean it is always available. There are many times when it is busy where it is hard to find dining anywhere and even at the quick service restaurants you may have a hard time finding seating.

Another great recommendation is don’t just stick to one spot. Each of these locations offer seating at the bar, stop by one and grab a drink, then make sure you have reservations for your meal and after you eat dinner go somewhere else for dessert. Spend your night restaurant hopping and trying the best of Disney Springs and a night you will remember!
