Aladdin's Oasis -- The Perfect Spot for an Indiana Jones Bar???

My head was spinning early in the week when the news of an Indiana Jones themed bar going in at Disney Springs.  This is great news for fans of the franchise and a good sign of more possible Indy fun to come.

If you missed that news --here is my blog about it.

I immediately started wishing for one out at Disneyland. 
With Trader Sam’s already at the Disneyland Hotel –where could it go?  The answer to that question is Aladdin’s Oasis in Disneyland.

The space is basically empty other than the occasional meet and 
greet for Aladdin and Jasmine.

In fact the last time it got regular usage was ironically during the summer of Indy –when Crystal Skull came out.   Here is Indy at Aladdin's Oasis..

The location is perfect  --situated between the Tiki Room and the Jungle Cruise.  This area already has the seating leftover from a long time ago when it was the Tahitian Terrace.  They could  knock out the one wall and have a view of the Jungle Cruise boats coming back into the dock.  
It could be called Sallah’s Oasis,  or Shortround’s Tavern.  Just a skip away from Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye.  Think Trader Sam’s meets the Dawa Bar in Animal Kingdom with Indiana Jones treasures all over the bar

A major hurdle to this is that Disneyland doesn’t currently sell alcohol in the park (other than Club 33).

This old tradition is odd because just across the way at DCA you can pretty much get an adult drink at every food location.  There is Avalon Cove bar,  a beer cart and a entire wine section.  You can even order a beer at the hamburger restaurant.   They have drinks at Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Disney Studios ----It is time Disney stepped into the modern world in this respect.

Hang in there and let's see what happens!!!  If the Indy bar in Orlando is a success like Trader Sam's on both coasts and West Coast Indy Bar can't be far behind.

And the Star Wars Cantina is most certainly on the way once the expected Star Wars Expansion takes place.
