Disney Vacation Guide to an early St. Patrick’s Day in Disney World: March 15-17

Disney is all about fun so when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day Festivities, they’re starting early! Afterall, why should the celebration be limited to just March 17th? From March 15-17, head down to Disney’s Pleasure Island to get in the St. Paddy’s Day spirit! More specifically, pull on something green and step into the Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant. For three days, music, dance and tasty Irish food let you eat, drink and have fun like only the Irish can! Watch our video below for a sneak peek at the festivities and then scan the entertainment lineup to see what catches your interest.

On the 17th, it’s all about non-stop entertainment starting at noon with Creel and The Raglan Road Dancers. Outdoor entertainment continues with Elevation (a U2 tribute band) and other Irish acts.

St. Patrick’s Day Dining in Disney World

Starting at 1pm on March 15 at Raglan Road, celebrity Irish chef Kevin Dundon will be serving up authentic Irish cuisine. He’ll be creating a 4-course luncheon and culinary demo in the Grand Dining Room.

You’ll be able to order from the dinner menu at Raglan Road throughout the entire day on March 17. Order the authentic Irish dish served on St. Patrick’s Day…loin of bacon and cabbage. YUM!

The Rose and Crown

If Raglan is full, the Rose and Crown in Epcot’s UK Pavilion serves up a mean fish & chips if that’s more your style for a St. Patrick’s Day meal. Don’t forget to order a shamrock-topped beer!
