REVIEW – Brunch at Raglan Road is the Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow
For your consideration, we present Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant’s brunch as one of the best values at Walt Disney World. When you consider that there are few character breakfast options available right now, and charge about $42 per person, and compare that to the live music that is offered at Raglan Road, with regular menu pricing, there is a great value here. Raglan Road is one of the most iconic places at Disney Springs, standing proud in The Landing section.
The brunch menu at Raglan Road is one the most indulgent of any menu at Walt Disney World. The dining experience starts with Stout Brown Bread served with Apple Butter; it’s hard to resist filling up on it. Our team ordered a nice assortment of sweet and savory items.
- Pork Hash Tagged – Braised Pork Belly, Scallions and Potato Hash, Topped with Two Fried Eggs, $16.00
- Rack of Heaven – Slow Roasted Guinness Glazed Full Rack of Baby Back Ribs, $28.00
- Worth the Wait Beef Sandwich – 12 Hour Braised Beef, Sauteed Mushrooms, Crispy Onions, Garlic Aioli, Smoked Cheddar, On Ciabatta, $20.00
- Pancakes Diaspora – Homemade Pancakes with Creme Fraiche, Maple Syrup and Mixed Berry Compote, $13.00
- Kids’ Gold’N Chicken Meal – 2 Deep Fried Chicken Goujons (strips); Choice of Side, $9.00
The Pork Hash Tagged was the most brunchy item the team dined on; definitely a winner. The Rack of Heaven Ribs had a delicious Guinness glaze and the mashed potatoes were some of the best the team has ever had on Disney property. The pancakes were delightful and affordable, but there are more impressive items on the menu. The Worth the Wait Beef Sandwich was large enough for two people and had hearty, robust flavors. The kids chicken fingers were good, different than the standard Disney chicken fingers or nuggets; the fries were “the bomb” according to our junior field researcher.
The delicious brunch fare combined with the bread to start, and an Irish beer or two, and our team was ready to snooze in the booth. Thankfully the lively music and entertainment kept them energized. The tables were spaced out compared to the old days. The staff is diligent about reminding guests not to get up without a mask. Spacing markers are present in the lobby and at the exit.
Our readers give Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant a 93% thumbs up and it is ranked number 11 out of 103 similar full service options at Walt Disney World. That puts it at the top tier, and it is not merely the luck of the Irish that earns Raglan Road such high marks. The food is delicious and high quality, and the atmosphere is hard to beat. Brunch is offered on Saturdays and Sundays, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. It’s hard to choose between brunch here and brunch at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ – both offer some of the best meals on Disney property.

When we fly home to U.K. on Virgin Atlantic airlines (direct flight) we can check in at Disney Springs the morning of the flight – including checking in suitcases for the hold. The flights are generally in the late afternoon so we then have a few hours to walk around Disney Springs. Our first stop is usually Raglan Road for breakfast or brunch and we have never been disappointed. It’s great to go there for our last meal before setting off for home.
