St. Patrick's Day Events at Walt Disney World

What better place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Walt Disney World than Raglan Road at Disney Springs? If you’ve been, you know you’re always part of the entertainment at the pub and restaurant but Saint Patrick’s Day is special. Raglan Road hosts a ceili, which is a fancy way to say a big Irish party with music and dance. Authentic Irish food, music and dance performances set the scene for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration and the “wearin’ of the green” at Raglan Road, a true Irish pub with Dublin roots, and throughout the surrounding Disney Springs area. Along with Irish dancing, there’s fun for all the family including face painting, giveaways and lots of crazy St Patrick’s Day memorabilia.
