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.

Dining

You’ll want to stop by the Rose and Crown Pub in the UK pavilion at Epcot on St. Patrick’s Day for some green beer or cider. Be forewarned, however, that on St. Patrick’s Day the lines at the pub and the outdoor beer tap can be very long.

Guests can also pick up additional Saint Patrick’s Day-themed treats such as cookies, caramel apples, cupcakes and more can be found at bakeries and candy shops throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
