Raglan Road Celebrates 15th Anniversary

It is going to be a big party at Disney Springs when Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant celebrates its 15th anniversary on Wednesday, October 21st. 

Raglan Road Disney Springs Mighty St Patricks Day Festival Great Irish Hooley Raglan Road Disney Springs 2016

On that day Raglan Road will offer guests a bevy of food, beverage, and retail specials:

  • Select Entrees reduced to $15 to include Fish & Chips, Shepherd’s To Die For Pie, Bangin’ Bangers and Mighty Mash, and the OMG Burger
  • $15 15-year-old Irish Whiskey Flight
  • $15 Beer Flights for Two
  • 15% off Cooke’s of Dublin meals
  • 15% off Shop for Ireland retail purchases
Raglan Road Irish Pub Disney Springs

You can’t celebrate what’s to come without looking back at how it all started! 

The dining, shopping, and entertainment district Disney Springs was still called Downtown Disney in 2005 when the authentic Irish pub, owned and operated by Irish partners John Cooke and Paul Nolan, opened its doors offering a lively mix of authentic Irish entertainment, contemporary Irish cuisine, and a warm interior of aged walnut and mahogany woods from old Irish bars and churches was built in Ireland and shipped to Orlando.

Raglan Road Irish Pub Disney Springs

Now situated at The Landing at Disney Springs and having garnered multiple dining and entertainment awards through the years, Raglan Road features daily choreographed Irish stage shows by talented bands and an award-winning step-dance troupe. A dining destination for travelers and locals, Raglan Road last month earned Orlando magazine’s 2020 Reader’s Choice first-place Dining Award for Best Live Music Entertainment. The pub’s popular annual Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival and its Labor Day weekend boutique Irish music festival, the Great Irish Hooley, have welcomed many thousands of festival-goers each year.

Initially featuring lunch, dinner, and late-night pub grub, Raglan Road in 2013 introduced its Rollicking Raglan Brunch on Sundays, eventually expanding to Saturdays, as well. The popular weekend brunch last month also earned an Orlando magazine Reader’s Choice 2nd place Dining Award for Best Brunch. 

Raglan Road Irish Pub Disney Springs

A Traveler’s Choice award winner for consecutive years, Raglan Road in 2020 also earned the exclusive honor of placing in the top 10 percent of restaurants worldwide thanks to travelers’ reviews and ratings.

In addition to the pub’s modern Irish cuisine, the menu features a wide selection of craft beers and ales, hand-crafted cocktails, Irish coffee drinks, plus wine and bubbly, too. The Raglan Road children’s menu offers options for every young palate.

Raglan Road closed in mid-March due to pandemic-related restaurant shutdowns and reopened in June after incorporating a long list of safety measures throughout the restaurant. Guests can book socially-distanced tables for dinner and for the Rollicking Raglan Weekend Brunch. Drop-in guests may find distanced seating at one of the pub’s bars, in one of three dining rooms, or on the patio, but reservations are highly recommended.

Raglan Road Irish Pub Disney Springs

Currently, Raglan Road also features live entertainment nightly including a suite of shows featuring Irish bands and dancers. Guests also can enjoy shows beginning at noon during the weekend Rollicking Raglan Brunch.  Dinner is served from 4-11 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday Brunch is served from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

The pub’s Shop for Ireland boutique is open daily and packed with everything from cookbooks and kitchen wares to a wide selection of apparel, jewelry, flat caps, ball caps, and foodstuffs. Cooke’s of Dublin, the Irish quick-service restaurant adjacent to the pub, offers traditional favorites like Dublin-style fish & chips, burgers, and savory pies to carry out, eat in or devour at an outside table from noon to 10 p.m.

For something a bit more savory, you can choose to enjoy the new “Loaded” Potato-Cheese Casserole topped with smoked bacon crumbles and chives.

Last but not least is Goofy’s Banana Bread French Toast that combines unique flavors of banana bread baked in zesty orange-scented French toast batter, Espresso-mascarpone cream, toasted bananas, and chocolate crumbles.

If you can’t decide on which new item to try, you’ll be able to taste all three as part of an all-you-care-to-enjoy family-style feast with other traditional breakfast favorites.

When Mickey and friends return, the experience may look a little different than the last time you visited, but you can still expect to smile, wave, and make unforgettable memories with some of your favorite characters as they parade through the restaurant in their chef’s best.

A Taste of Epcot to Debut at the Park

A Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2020

One of the best times of year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort is the annual EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, and Imagineers have cooked up a creative and modified festival experience that will be the longest festival yet – A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival!

This new take on the foodie festival will debut July 15 and continue through the fall, offering over 20 signature global marketplaces like Hawaii, Hops & Barley, and Islands of the Caribbean, spaced out around the park. 

A Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2020

The Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival combines the floral fun of Flower & Garden with the global goodies of the annual Food & Wine Festival.

If you didn’t get to see the park’s newest topiary, Remy, in the France pavilion, or to purchase any Flower & Garden merchandise, this is your chance! 

A Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2020

For scavenger hunt fans, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak scavenger hunt returns to take guests on an adventure to find their favorite ’Tiny Chef’. 

While we don’t have information about the Food & Wine merchandise yet, we are sure to share the information as the products join the fun later on after the festival begins. 

While popular musical acts during the “Eat to the Beat Concert Series” often pack the house, they will not be a part of the Take of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival in an effort to accommodate proper physical distancing. 

However, there will be plenty of music to enjoy at America Gardens Theatre with local EPCOT entertainment such as Mariachi Cobre, the JAMMitors and more. 

It’s going to be awesome to see these fan favorites perform throughout the day, giving audiences more options to enjoy them.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, plus more for greasing the soufflé cups
  • 6 tablespoons sugar, plus more for dusting the soufflé cups
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa
  • 2 ounces (2/3 cup) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • Vanilla Sauce (recipe follows)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Set a full kettle of water on to boil.
  3. Butter six 4-ounce soufflé cups and coat with sugar; set aside.
  4. Bring the milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cocoa to the butter and beat with a whisk to a smooth, paste-like consistency. Reduce heat and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Slowly add the hot milk, whisking until smooth, then blend in melted chocolate. Let cool for 5 minutes, then stir in egg yolks.
  6. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until frothy. Slowly add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff, glossy peaks form. Stir a heaping spoonful of egg whites into the chocolate, then fold in the remaining whites just until combined.
  7. Pour the batter into prepared soufflé cups. Place cups in a large baking dish and add enough boiling water to reach halfway the sides of the soufflé cups.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve immediately, with warm vanilla sauce.

Vanilla Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 small egg yolks

Directions

  1. Bring cream and vanilla bean to a low boil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Combine sugar and egg yolks.
  3. Add 2 spoonfuls of boiling cream to egg mixture and stir well, then pour back into the remaining cream and continue to cook over low heat, stirring constantly for 3 to 4 minutes.

Let’s Start over at the Universal Orlando Resort for the reopening of CityWalk!

Universal Orlando Resort CityWalk Reopening

CityWalk was really the ‘Epicenter of Awesome’ this week as they opened with limited operations. 

It was so great to once again see people roaming CityWalk, but I will caution you that I expect the area to be busy this weekend so there a few things you can do to cut down on your waits!

  1. Download the Official Universal Orlando Resort App – Be ready to make those Cashless purchases and make sure to link your Universal Orlando Resort Pass for discounts!
  2. Plan to arrive early: They are limiting the number of guests they are allowing in the CityWalk area, and there can be a back up at the parking plaza as self-parking is free.
  3. Be prepared  – Have that mask on and ready as you approach the temperature check so security can pass you as quickly as possible.
  4. Be patient – Mind those 6ft social distancing markers on the ground, relax, and make sure to enjoy your time once again at Universal’s CityWalk!!!

CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort is open daily from 4-10 pm, but please remember that the theme parks and resorts are still currently closed.

Disney Springs Reopening

Now, let’s take a look at their new “Dine Safe” program that is being implemented across all of their locations.

Disney Springs Patina Group Dine Safe Program May 2020

The “Dine Safe: Commitment to Care” program is a comprehensive set of reengineered operating procedures to minimize contact risk and bolster hygiene protocol that meet or exceed the best-practice guidelines recommended by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“These heightened sanitation standards will help us manufacture a dining environment that keeps guests and our team members as safe as possible,” said Kyle Collins, Director of Marketing for Patina in Florida. “The health, wellbeing, and peace of mind of our guests, team members, and the community remain our highest priorities.” 

The key components of the Dine Safe program include:

The Dining Room and Guest Experience:

  • To enhance health and safety measures, guests will be required to wear face coverings at all times except while eating and drinking.
  • Ensuring current social distancing procedures are upheld via the redesign of table layouts for seating guests as directed by local and state regulators and in compliance with the CDC.
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols, including hourly disinfecting as needed for all high-touch surfaces. 
  • Multiple hand-sanitizing stations strategically placed throughout our facilities.
  • Controlled access to the facility to carefully monitor incoming and outgoing patrons and employees through clearly designated entrances and exits.
  • Using single-use menus to limit contact. 

Team Member Safety Measures: 

  • Undergo a health check when they report to work.
  • Sanitize their hands when they report to work and are required to wash and sanitize their hands every 20 minutes throughout the shift.
  • Wear masks while on duty.
  • Undergo a comprehensive “Dine Safe” Training Program. 

“We look forward to welcoming our guests back very soon and are dedicated to continuing to deliver an unparalleled dining experience,” Collins said.

The remaining Patina Restaurant Group-operated locations at Disney Springs including Maria & Enzo’s, Enzo’s Hideaway, and The Edison will also be resuming their operations soon, and we’ll be sure to share that news as soon as it becomes available!
