REVIEW: Embrace the spirit of Norway and drink from a horn at the Keg & Compass pub aboard Disney Wish

0

Welcome aboard the Disney Wish! We would love for you to join us as we explore the Keg & Compass, a Nordic style pub resembling a traditional sailor’s chart room. We found little secrets on the ceiling, incredible woodwork and, of course, booze. Let’s dive into it.

Mind your head as you enter under the wooden panel decorated with carved octopuses and rich lettering.

Maelstrom fans will recognize this little tribute to the defunct attraction. The sign reads, “You’re not the first to go through this, and you won’t be the last.”

The table under the bar counter is adorned with leather suitcase drawers. Treasures are certainly kept there.

Behind the faucet is a golden porthole decorated with a wooden octopus. The clever sea creature holds a Mickey waffle in one tentacle and a chalice in another. Cheers!

Or maybe it’s a citrus swirl!

The ceiling is also covered in a Searfarer world map with tiny details and nods to beloved Disney movies.

Disney Wish Keg Compass 34 Scale 1

The first one we discovered was from “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”, a classic 1954 film. The image shows Ned atop the Nautilus, readying a harpoon on the sea monster.

The next one is from a much later movie, “Moana”, featuring the volcanic goddess, Te Kā. Each character is on the map at the place corresponding to the setting.

Disney Wish Keg Compass 28 Scale

Welcome to the EAC, guys! In this scene, we see Crush and Squirt showing Marlin and Dory how to surf currents.

Disney Wish Keg Compass 49 Scale

This is Monstro from “Pinocchio”. I hope you don’t meet him on the high seas.

Disney Wish Keg Compass 48 Scale

Ursula revels in the (short-lived) victory over Triton and Ariel in this scene.

Disney Wish Keg Compass 37 Scale 1

The worst pirate we’ve ever heard of — but hey, at least you’ve heard of him! — Captain Jack Sparrow descends from his sinking ship with a smirk on his face. So it is where all the rum has gone!

Disney Wish Keg Compass 38 Scale 1

Last but not least, is the very place the Disney Wish set sail from – Florida! Three locations are shown on the map: Celebration, Lake Buena Vista, and Port Canaveral.

Skall Sangria – $10

Lindeman’s Raspberry, Twisted Tentacle Ale, Lillet Rose

Disney Wish Keg Compass 23 Scale 1
Disney Wish Keg Compass 19 Scale

Raspberry is the dominant flavor here, which essentially makes it a carbonated raspberry juice with alcohol. It is less sweet and more tart, not nectary, sweet or syrupy. This is a great cocktail, probably the best at this place.

Old Fashioned Glögg – $10

Port, Bourbon, Viking Spices

Disney Wish Keg Compass 12 Scale

A good bourbon with notes of cloves and nutmeg, which makes it feel like a holiday drink. That’s fine, but it may put off more seasoned old-fashioned drinkers, who would be better served stopping by Hook’s Barbery for a drink between 5 and 8 p.m. every night.

Northern Lights – $13

Linie Aquavit, Mead, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, Uncharted Lager

Disney Wish Keg Compass 17 Scale
Disney Wish Keg Compass 5 to Scale

Despite the long list of ingredients, lager is the dominant taste. The presentation cannot be beat as it is served in a giant glass horn. You can pick up the whole contraption to drink, or honk the horn and sip if you’re feeling adventurous.
