I love the entire staff at Jellyrolls on the Boardwalk! It's a dueling piano bar and th players are so talented. Wait staff and bartenders are great!! No food though, so eat before you go

We like the bartenders & drinks at the Cabana Bar & Grill at the Dolphin. I agree that Tambu is great. Good energy. We also like The Wave at the Contemporary.

Best cocktails are at the Swolphin resorts tho. Disney uses syrups The Swolphin makes all their own stuff fresh - incredible Mixologists.....

I second DC, I am partial to the Tune Inn Bartenders. Hollywood Studios by 50's Prime Time. Dave, David, Alena, Enzo (se habla espanol muy bien), the "new guy" who's name escapes me but he speaks perfect Spanish and probably Portuguese, and all the others who go behind the bar are awesome. . .Its my fave place.

A shout out for Todd, a bartender, and Holly and John, the two servers at the Lounge at POR.

There is also entertainment there as well; Wednesday through Saturday is Yee-hah Bob.

I'm going to throw out Territory Lounge at the Wilderness Lodge. Moreso for the quiet, off-the-beaten-path feel and "Lodgey" atmosphere than the bartenders themselves. However, I do recall the staff being very friendly.

For WL:
I believe the one bartender's name is Bruce, and she (yes, she!) is great!

Also, Ray at the Outer Rim in Contemporary is fantastic. Sit at the bar and he will give you fun brain teasers and is just really nice!

this may seem like a funny choice, but a couple weekends ago a friend of mine and I were at the clubhouse at Osprey Ridge Golf Course. We were picking up our men after a very "tiring" day of being golf widows (which translates to a ride on Soarin and a visit to the food and wine pavilion for morning toddies. . .then off to food and wine to meet up with another friend, see Betheney Frankel (Skinny Girl Cocktails) and more fun). It was really tough being golf widows (lol. . .rofl) but the bartender at Osprey Ridge made it fun.

Bruce was formerly tending bar at the Top of the World lounge in BLT. My parents raved about her.

I think she's moved on to a new location though.
