It’s just about that time — St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner!

st patricks mighty festival logo 2016

And if you happen to be in Orlando for the holiday, there’s just one place you’ve gotta be…Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant!

Year after year, Raglan Road continues to wow with this festival, which combines the best of Irish music, dancing, culture, and food. And even throughout the constant construction in Disney Springs, they’ve kept it going strong.

This year’s festival will span seven full days. The party starts TODAY — Friday, March 11 — and runs straight through St. Patrick’s Day on the following Thursday!

During the event, you can enjoy all of the wonderful food and drink that Raglan Road offers; and there will be complimentary face painting. Please note: seating will be first come, first served on St. Patrick’s Day, and a cover charge of $10 per person will be applied on that day only for all guests over the age of 18. It gets BUSY, so go early!

Let’s take a look at what you can expect in 2016!

Master Chef Kevin Dundon is sure to have something special in store for guests who attend Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival culinary events! Choose from a luncheon and culinary demonstration, or indulge in a special signature dining experience. [Read more…]

Fun Follow: Raglan Road Twitter Account

Are you following Raglan Road on Twitter (@RaglanRoadPub)?

Here’s the deal: I started following along to receive timely info about this fan-favorite Irish pub in Disney Springs. Thanks to Paul (one of the three co-owners of Raglan Road), the pub’s Twitter account is a great place to find the scoop on all things Raglan.

But there’s a bit more to it than that.

Instead of reading like a commercial, Paul prefers that the stream reads more like a conversation with the pub. But regardless of who you’re supposed to be talking to in 140 characters or less, this twitter feed is pretty freaking entertaining.

Guest Review: Allergy Friendly Dining at Walt Disney World

Join us in welcoming guest author Jennifer Harris with an informative review of allergy friendly dining at Walt Disney World. Are you on a special diet? Read on!

Oh Disney, how I love your allergen-friendly ways. Dining at Disney is half the fun for those with food intolerance/allergy while visiting its theme parks. From the very first meal, it is apparent their talented team of chefs has got your back and then some. With table and quick service, buffet, and fine dining options, the attention paid to preparing allergen-free cuisine is exemplary. The sky is the limit at Disney because serving their guests is top priority.

Preparation tables are sanitized, gloves are changed, and one chef handles the order from start to finish to ensure there is no cross contact. Disney can currently prepare meals for those allergic/intolerant to: wheat, gluten, peanuts and tree nuts, soy, eggs, corn, dairy and lactose, shellfish, and fish.

Review: Lunch at Raglan Road in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs

We’re taking in lunch at Raglan Road Irish Pub in Disney Springs!

If you’ve visited Disney Springs recently, you know that the area once known as Pleasure Island is practically unrecognizable from what it was two years ago. Construction walls abound, and new restaurants and shops seem to be opening every day.

The good news is that those walls seem to be decreasing every time I visit. And so on a recent research visit, I headed over to Raglan Road to take a peek at some new cocktails and have a bite to eat!

Atmosphere

As I’ve said, if you haven’t visited for a while, all the work at Disney Springs is going to shock you. While Raglan Road used to stand front and center, easily viewable from the parking lots, now it’s a bit of a walk to get here from the nearest parking building.

You should budget at least 10 minutes or so if you’re coming from the parking garage. [Read more…]
