Nestled into Disney’s Boardwalk Resort on Walt Disney World property is a dueling pianos bar, where the tunes are hot and the drinks are ice cold. Jellyrolls is the spot to hear live music, sing along to some karaoke, munch on some popcorn, and raise a toast to good times.
Where is it?
If you enter the Boardwalk through the parking lot, Jellyrolls is at the end of the Boardwalk to the left after you pass through the lobby. The bar is only for adults 21 and up. If you are visiting on vacation with your kids, this might be a spot to keep in mind for a date night rather than a family outing. There is also an admission fee to enter nightly.
After you pay the cost to get in, you’ll emerge into a large room with a stage at the front, complete with two grand pianos and mics. To the left and right of the stage are two bars. One of these has freshly popping popcorn all night long, and all around Jellyrolls are tables and chairs for viewing. I definitely suggest getting there early, as after a couple of hours it was quickly standing room only!
This place is such a good time! Throughout the night, two pianists/singers will take turns playing requested and suggested songs. These pianist duos are switched out every couple of hours as well to take a break. Our group found that this switch was great because some of the older members of our crew liked the songs from one pianist the most. In contrast, the younger ones in our party liked the other, so it was the best of both worlds to have the pianists switching.
One of the traditions at Jellyrolls is to write your requests for music on the little bar napkins that they provide, and then bring them up to the pianists. There were so many napkins on the pianos and it was so cool to hear what everyone wanted to hear!
Jellyrolls has their own menu of signature cocktails, such as the Purple Rain. This drink is made with orange vodka, blue curaçao, sprite, and cranberry juice. You can get any cocktail in regular cups or in insulated tumblers that you can take home with you. They also have classic cocktails, and a wide range of liquors, if you are looking for something specific to enjoy.

Great music, good drinks, and fun times await at Jellyrolls at Disney’s Boardwalk. The entertainment here is something completely improvised, as songs are requested by guests and pianists change often. You never know which tunes will be played when you visit! Have you ever been to this location?
Walt Disney World Resort
Jellyrolls is located at Disney’s Boardwalk in the Walt Disney World Resort. On property there are so many beautiful resorts, delicious restaurants, and of course exciting theme parks to enjoy. Located close to Disney World is the city of Kissimmee, where residents are less than 20 minutes from the fun. Kissimmee is also home to The Loop, which is a large shopping plaza filled with restaurants and tons of stores. Kissimmee is home to neighborhoods like Hunter’s Creek, where houses are surrounded by ponds and walking trails to keep you secluded from the hustle and bustle of the traffic on the main roads, but close to the magic of the parks and fun of The Loop.
