The event — sponsored by Dole Packaged Foods, features over a dozen special menu items found at various Downtown Disney restaurants. These tastes of the islands will be accompanied by regular weekly appearances of the Polynesian performers of Tupua. Beginning July 1st, Tupua will help set the scene on the Downtown Disney LIVE! Stage with song, dance, and color. Moving forward, Tupua will appear on Friday evenings through the run of the event.

We mentioned a “taste of the islands,” too, though, didn’t we? Find a Hawaiian BBQ Sandwich at Earl of Sandwich. Or stop by ESPN Zone for Hawaiian Pork Sliders, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, or a Summer Mojito.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and yours!

As you’re searching through the closet for your favorite green garment to don today, you may want to know about some green and Irish-themed EATS you can search for should you find yourself in Orlando’s Disney Springs or Anaheim’s Downtown Disney District on March 17th! (And heads up: a few of these treats will stick around through the rest of the month!)

We’ve already shared some of the treats you will spot around the Disney World parks earlier this week, but now let’s take a look at the Leprechaun-snacks you’ll find in Disney World’s shopping, entertainment and dining district!

And the one we’re most excited about is the Irish Stout Poutine covered in corned beef, braised cabbage, beer cheese and chives at The Daily Poutine!
