We love to say that any day at Walt Disney World is a holiday but if you’re lucky to visit when an actual holiday hits? The fun is amped up even more. And while we’ve visited WDW for a couple of the big holidays, there’s plenty of fun on St. Patrick’s Day in the parks and Disney Springs. Ready to get your Irish on? Here’s fun ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Walt Disney World.
Whether you’re Irish, have Irish blood, or or Irish for a Day on St. Patrick’s Day, Raglan Road in Disney Springs is THE spot to hit to celebrate. Each year, the restaurant doesn’t just celebrate St. Pat’s, they celebrate the entire week. This year, the festival is March 16-19, 2017, and features top notch Irish bands and The Raglan Road Dancers.
If you do happen to have the luck of the Irish and can make the festival on St. Patrick’s Day, there’s a $10 cover charge for guests 18 years of age and older.
If it’s Irish you’re looking for in Epcot, it’s the UK Pavilion in World Showcase you’ll need to visit. Situated between the France and Canada Pavilions, you’ll be able to score authentic Irish merchandise including football (soccer) jerseys. If you’ve worked up an appetite, you can hit its counter service restaurant, Yorkshire County Fish Shop, for a delicious meal. Looking for a sit-down style restaurant? Rose & Crown is where you’ll need to make a reservation. You’ll also find plenty of beer at both.
St. Patrick’s Day Merchandise
It’s impossible to take a trip to Disney and not bring home a souvenir or two. Or 20. To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. In years past there have been commemorative t-shirts and pins, along with character plushies and other trinkets. Hit the stores in the theme parks to purchase.
In year’s past there have been St. Patrick’s Day Mickey ears for sale as well, so keep an eye out in the hat shops if you want a pair.
