St. Patrick’s Day is in about a week and a half and if you’ll be visiting Walt Disney World from March 13-17, then there is only one place where you should be to get your Irish on and that’s at Raglan Road for the Mighty St. Patrick’s Day Festival!
The five day event is an authentic St. Paddy’s Day celebration featuring great Irish cuisine, live music, performances by award-winning Irish dancers, complimentary face painting, and of course, lots of green everywhere!
Raglan Road guests ready to “get their green on” can participate in festivities that run from 4 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. March 13 and from noon until 1:30 a.m. March 14-17.
The highlight is the music courtesy of the fantastic bands that will take one of three different stages. This year, bands will include the very best of native Irish talent – Drops of Green, Reel Ó Gránde, The Brayzen Heads and The West Coast Trio. Topping off the Festival are Scythian and $3 Band — two of the very best Irish bands in America.
Rounding out the live entertainment are performances from the Raglan Road Dancers, who will perform throughout the weekend and they’ll even teach guests traditional Irish dance steps.
Of course, dining will be a major factor and Raglan Road just recently introduced multiple new menu items. They include Cod Cornucopia, a pan-roasted cod with crispy skin atop warm potato salad and a drizzle of chorizo vinaigrette; Proud Pork, a grilled chop with traditional colcannon potato mash with cabbage, buttermilk and onion; and Double Joint, a cowboy cut rib-eye steak served with duck fat fries, roast veggies and a lightly dressed salad. The restaurant has also introduced many new beverages, as well.
Celtic face painting will also take place on Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday from noon until 8:00 p.m.
For those who want to visit the restaurant on March 17, do keep in mind that a cover charge of $10 will apply to guests age 18 and older and guests will be seated on a first come, first served basis.
