From a special experience at the AMC Theater to exciting new treats, here’s why you should see the new Indiana Jones at Disney Springs.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is the fifth and final film in the beloved, now-classic film series. The Indiana Jones films have undoubtedly helped to shape cinematic history, and to have the chance to see the iconic character take one final journey before retirement is something to celebrate indeed! At Disney Springs, you can not only experience the film at AMC theaters (complete with some fun photo ops and a behind-the-scenes surprise), but you can also shop for your favorite merchandise and even stop for a themed snack and drink pairing in a haunt inspired by Indy’s adventures. Put on your fedoras folks, because it’s time to explore all of the adventures inspired by Indiana Jones that await this summer at Disney Springs!

Experience a ‘Brick Carpet’ Experience at AMC Theater

Indiana Jones is definitely the rugged type, which is why the AMC Theater at Disney Springs has rolled out a fitting ‘brick’ carpet decal for guests entering the theater during the opening week of the film’s summer run. Walking the ‘brick carpet’ and passing by the banners featuring the film’s iconic cast might seem like a complete welcome, but even more Indy-inspired experiences await inside. 

A 3D, lifesize marquee featuring a cutout of Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones’ adventure gear awaits just inside the lobby for a fun photo op. The crowning glory of the displays, though, culminates with a huge exhibit chronicling the Indy films’ history through photos, while text explains to audiences how the Indiana Jones franchise majorly shaped the adventure film genre.

Finally, guests visiting the Disney Springs AMC have the chance to experience Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny in a Dolby Theater! Everything from the screen to the chairs, through to incredible Dolby sound systems make seeing a film of this caliber that much more unforgettable. 

New Offerings at Jock Lindsey’s 

In celebration of the film’s release, the Indiana Jones-inspired Jock Lindesey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs is serving up some noteworthy concoctions. Keep the adventure going, and head to the Hangar Bar for some of Jock’s famous libations with new twists!

Several new takes on existing Hangar Bar classics have been revamped for the new menu. But my favorite item is the Charter Flight, complete with three different and distinct specialty cocktails! Plus, be sure to look around the bar very, very carefully for some artifacts from not just the older films but from Dial of Destiny too! Already, Imagineers have added props and photos from the new film, so keep your eyes peeled and your cameras ready to capture these artifacts in their new home. 

If you’re hungry for dessert after your drinks, head to Amorette’s Patisserie or The Ganachery for even more treats inspired by everyone’s favorite Doctor of Archaeology. At Amorette’s, guests can indulge in a mini cake decorated with an (edible) leather jacket, whip, and hat. And over at The Ganachery, folks who like to earn their dessert can pick up a chocolate pinata adorned in Indy’s famous wardrobe and accessories, with even more treats waiting after you break its shell!

New Indiana Jones Merchandise

In order to live the adventure to the fullest, any true explorer relies on good gear to help represent their fandom! Head to World of Disney where Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’s merchandise is in full stock, and ready to be taken home. 

Everything from Indy’s famous hat to t-shirts, through to tumblers. There’s even an adorable set of Mickey ears with the famous fedora available! Fans of the original trilogy will find movie-replicated props in the form of the Headpiece of the Staff of Ra and Indy’s whip and another film-authentic replica of the Crystal Skull. No matter if you visit to experience the film or make a full adventure of your day at Disney Springs, there truly is something for every Indian Jones fan, young and old, to experience here this summer!
