I Never Knew I Could Do That!
Your Guide to Amazing Animal Adventures 
at Walt Disney World

I challenge you to find anyone who does entertainment better than Disney! Everywhere you go within a Disney property anywhere in the world, a story is being told. It is certainly no different at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida where you are immersed in the storytelling through learning and fun. These ultra-special experiences take you beyond the theme parks and put you right at the heart of Walt’s dreams where families come together and celebrate life!

Raglan Road Irish Pub 

Raglan Road, nestled in the middle of the Downtown Disney/Disney Springs shopping and dining area, is one of the most unique and delicious restaurants on property!

For those of us who remember Pleasure Island, Raglan Road was one of the first new additions to Pleasure Island when it became more family-friendly in late 2005.  Built across from Mannequins, in place of what used to be an ice cream parlor, Raglan Road brought a new era of fine dining to Downtown Disney.

Raglan Road is an authentic Irish Pub – and when I say ‘authentic’, I’m not just saying they have shamrocks and shepherd’s pie.  What I mean is that every recipe is traditional Irish cuisine, the physical bar in the restaurant was taken out of an authentic pub in Ireland, live traditional music and Irish dancers grace crowds every evening, and beers and liquors traditionally served in Ireland are ready for your consumption!  

Although there is Cooke’s Window, an Ice Cream shop, and an outdoor bar at Raglan Road, the true deliciousness that is the atmosphere and food lies within, at the table service meal!  Raglan Road accepts reservations through Disney Dining, but also through Open Table as it is a third party.  Don’t let this deter you from making a reservation though! The Disney Dining Plan (1 meal credit), as well as Tables in Wonderland, are both accepted here.  

Your entire family will find something to enjoy on the menu, reasonably priced from as low as $5 to upwards of $55.  The menu boasts an amazing Portobella Burger, Bangers and Mash, as well as their famous Bread Pudding, among other amazing lunch and dinner options.  Brunch is served on weekends.  Beers, wines, and other adult beverages are plentiful.  We are certain you will walk away from this restaurant with a full belly and big smile 🙂

Raglan Road is open from 11am to 11pm and is family friendly.  Reservations are strongly suggested, but walk-ins are welcomed.  Let your Me and The Mouse Travel Specialist book your next dining experience here!  You won’t be disappointed 🙂
