The Homecomin’ Porch is now air conditioned!

There is perhaps no better way to recharge during a Walt Disney World vacation than getting off of your feet and cooling off inside an air conditioned space. When that space is paired with amazing food and refreshing drinks, you have hit the jackpot! Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ at Disney Springs has upped the relax and recharge game by turning their ‘porch’ into a Florida room!

Chef Art Smith took to Instagram to announce the restaurants new ‘Florida Room.’

In the video, Chef teases a cool room overlooking a beautiful blue lagoon with a cool drink.

As a central Florida resident, I think I found my new go-to spot for a warm Florida weekend afternoon!
