SATURDAY SIX: Six Ways Disney’s AbracadaBar Has Us Under Its Spell

by on September 10, 2016

This week’s SATURDAY SIX takes a look at Six Ways Disney’s AbracadaBar Has Us Under Its Spell. With the Flying Fish recently receiving a lengthy refurbishment and a completely new look, ESPN Club getting a major menu upgrade, and the debut of Ample Hills Creamery (serving some of the best ice cream on property), Disney’s BoardWalk area is now better than it has ever been. However, another new addition to the area may actually be the best improvement of all, the AbracadaBar.

Following the trend set by Sam’s Grog Grotto, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and Nomad Lounge, AbracadaBar is an extremely well themed bar, with an elaborate backstory centered around magicians of the Golden Age. Everywhere you look at AbracadaBar, there are winks and nods to the art of performing magic. These can range from straight jackets and chains, items made famous by Harry Houdini, to playing cards, mirrors, linking rings and other items that are part of any magician’s arsenal. However, this being Disney, if you look really close you’ll see some extra special details. What are the six best? Well sit back, remember that real magicians do “illusions” because “tricks” are, well, you know…, and let’s begin our list with…

# 6 – Magic Posters

Throughout AbracadaBar there are “enchanted” posters. They normally represent several of the famous magicians who would visit the lounge in the 1930s. However, part of the the story of AbracadaBar is that one night every magician in the bar disappeared, never to be seen again. Every hour on the 13th minute, the posters change and the magicians depicted in them disappear. This is very reminiscent of the effect Be Our Guest Restaurant uses to show a transformation of a “painting” in the West Wing.

# 5 – Hidden Mickeys

Fans of Hidden Mickeys are going to need to keep their head on a swivel as there are several of them sprinkled throughout the bar area (including some in stained glass.) Our favorite though has to be what looks like a normal Ace of Clubs playing card, but instead is a cleverly designed Ace of Mickey.
