Raglan Road has a very special place in my heart. I ate at Raglan Road after running my very first marathon back in January 2011. My husband and I had only been to Disney twice as a married couple, and were not quite as Disney savvy as we are now. While we did stay on property for this trip, we didn’t know much about the Disney dining plan. Our very first time we did just order appetizers, buy WOW WOW WOW were we impressed! (Seriously, try “Smokie City”). One could assume that after running 26.2 miles that just about anything would taste wonderful, and that is probably some what true, but the food was definitely awesome
We had such an amazing time on that short trip for the marathon weekend that we went again that summer. This time around we were on the dining plan, and certainly enjoyed the entrees!
Starting out at Raglan Road you’ll be served Irish brown bread with an amazing Guinness reduction. (My mouth is watering as I type)
While the appetizers are not included on the dining plan I do have to recommend two appetizers because they’re just too good not to mention. Smokie City (as I mentioned before) and the Mighty Mussels. Smokie City is creamy smoked haddock & Dubliner cheese dip with potatoes, tomatoes & crostinis. Don’t let the fact that it has smoked fish throw you for a loop, it’s totally cheesy and totally worth it. It’s definitely big enough to share too! The Mighty Mussels are 1/2 lb. of fresh Blue Hill Bay mussels in a coconut infused curry broth, and are absolutely amazing. The coconut curry broth really has a unique flavor that will leave you craving more!
Now for the entrees, I don’t even know where to begin as far as making a recommendation. The entree menu is quite large. Generally in the restaurants they offer 6-8 entree options. Raglan Road offers 21 entree options as well as 6 entree sized salads. The average price for an entree is between $16 and $30, depending on what you’re in the mood for.
The Disney Dining plan is accepted here, and counts as a table service credit (includes a beverage, entree, and dessert).
The last WONDERFUL thing that I will mention about Raglan Road is the live entertainment! You may catch a live band while you’re there like we did during our first experience, or perhaps an Irish dance performance!
There are lots of amazing restaurants to choose from at Downtown Disney, but Raglan Road is definitely worth the time!
