Bongo's is located in Downtown Disney's West Side in a building shaped like a giant pineapple.  Created by Miami residents Gloria and Emilio Estefan, it's got a pleasant Cuba-like atmosphere with lively music.  If we're you're not looking for a full service meal or you just want to relax, you can enjoy listening to the music while sitting in the outside seating area.  You can grab a cup of coffee or some food ordered from the walk-up express window.  In the evening there's live entertainment with a Desi Arnaz impersonator.  There's also a live band on Friday and Saturday nights from 9 PM on. The food is authentic Cuban cuisine. 

 

We recently called there for reservations and we were told that they seat on a first come first served basis.  They don't give reservations. I asked about the wait on a Friday night and was told it was approximately 1 hour.
