In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, we thought we would discuss one of our favorite places to eat in Disney. Located in Downtown Disney, Raglan Road is a phenomenal Irish Pub that is fun for anyone seeking great food and great entertainmentThere are so many great dishes to choose from, and they are all delicious. Some recommendations include: Keen Eye for Shepherd's Pie, Fish & Chips, and It's Not Bleedin' Chowder. By far, one of my favorite dishes is the Bangers and Booz. These Guinness and onion bangers (sausages) and mashed potatoes are topped with caramelized onions and beef stew. Oh man, I am ready to drive over and order some right now!The meal is only a start to the Raglan Road experience, If you are lucky enough to dine around 9pm from Monday to Saturday, you will witness live Irish dancing. Not enough? How about some great music too? Most nights from 7pm, a three piece band plays some great Irish tunes.Great meals, great entertainment, great atmosphere, great restaurant! Raglan Road does accept the Disney Dining Plan and will cost 1 Table Service Credit. Likewise, Tables in Wonderland is also accepted for Florida residents and Annual Pass holders. Doors open at 11am and close at 11pm, so you have 12 hours of opportunity each day for this delight.
