Location: The Landing, Disney Springs
I remember back in the early 1990s, either
McDonald's or Burger King had a special promotion where you could
purchase a meal and receive a VHS for one of the Indiana Jones films
for an additional price. My family first watched Indiana Jones
and the Last Crusade due to the promotion and I was instantly
mesmerized by the famed archeologist. In May of this year, it was
announced that a bar would be opening up in Disney Springs and it
would be themed around Indiana Jones. I was instantly ready for it
to open so I could get an Indiana Jones fix while in Disney Springs.
I'm happy to say this past Tuesday, Jock Lindsey's
Hangar Bar officially opened and the theming is extremely well done.
I know what some of you are thinking: Who on earth is Jock Lindsey?
If you think back to the start of Raiders of the Lost Ark
you'll surly remember the famous boulder scene where Indy barely
escapes certain death. Shortly after, our hero runs to a seaplane
where a pilot is waiting for him. The pilot is none other than Jock
Lindsey who, as story goes, crash landed at Disney Springs back in
1948 and opened up his bar seven years later.
Inside the bar you can find various artifacts that
Jock has collected throughout the years during his adventures (some
with Indiana Jones and others without). More importantly, while in
the bar we can find several references to the Indiana Jones films,
The Rocketeer, Star Wars, The Adventurers Club,
and many others. This week we will be taking a look at the first
Indiana Jones film I ever saw though, Indiana Jones and the Last
During the film, Indiana Jones and his dad, Henry
Jones, get caught by Nazis and are tied up in a chair while the
Nazis ride off to try and retrieve the Holy Grail. The two Jones
boys try to conjure up an escape and do so by having Henry reaching
into Indiana's pocket and taking out his lighter. The lighter falls
to the ground and starts a fire.
While in Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar, if you take a
look behind the bar itself you will notice a shelf on the left hand
side with various bottles on it. In front of those bottles you will
find a small white object with a four-leaf clover on it. This is the
lighter that was featured in the actual film!
