Review: Raglan Road
Irish Pub at Disney Springs
One of our favorite discoveries when we visited Disney Springs at WDW, was Raglan Road, an Irish Pub. We had so much fun and the food was awesome. We had traditional Irish dishes and practically licked the plate it was so good. I had the traditional Shepherd's Pie, which is my favorite authentic Irish dish and it was amazing. The girls had fish and chips and loved it. The dessert menu looked awesome but we were too full from our hearty meal to order one this time. We should have shared our meals to save room as the servings were big enough to share. Their menu was full of traditional Irish food and you could order something different everytime you visit and be able to visit many times.
Along with the dinner we were excited about the live entertainment. Our dinner started out with an lively Irish band and it progressed with Irish dancers. We never expected to have so much fun and I know it will be a place we will return to on every vacation.
The pub itself had authentic décor and your felt as though you stepped into a pub in Ireland. There was plenty of seating and a large bar that also seats to dine or just drinks if you prefer. According to their website the entire pub was built in Ireland and shipped to Disney Springs. The atmosphere with the décor, music, and dancers felt like our lunch was a party and not “just” lunch. The servers went out of their way to make you feel part of the entertainment as they served your every needs with the food.
If you happen to be lucky enough to be there on St. Patrick's Day, they put on a great celebration with singer, dancers, and bands from Ireland. I haven't been able to go at that time but it is definitely on my bucket list. They post pictures on their website and it looks like so much fun. You can use one of your Disney Dining Plan table service credits for Raglan Road.
Raglan Road gets a big A+ for authenticity, food quality in taste and appearance, and awesome entertainment. You normally won't need a reservation for lunch, but I would make one if you want to have dinner there.
