The Mighty Festival Returns to Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant in Disney Springs for St. Patrick’s Day


The Mighty Festival is back at the Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant in Disney Sources and guests can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with live music and entertainment and a delicious menu of festive food and drink. We were invited to find out what the festival has to offer today.

There are two featured drinks at this year’s Mighty Festival. First up is Paddy’s Mighty, made with Dingle Gin, Muddled Cucumber, Single Basil, Lemon Juice and Egg White. It is a very refreshing drink that anyone who loves the taste of cucumber will definitely want to try.

The second drink is So Berry Les, Crooked Can Brewing’s signature strawberry and lime seltzer available on tap. There’s actually a story behind this new drink and it’s a tribute to Raglan Road co-owner John Cooke’s father, Les. In 1977, he held the Guinness World Record for the most money spent on strawberries, an amount that today would equate to around $95 per strawberry. The publicity of this purchase generated a lot of attention for his restaurant.

In homage to that history, Crooked Can created this Strawberry Lime Hard Seltzer Water, which actually drinks much more like a cider. It is a perfect balance between sweet and sour and very easy to drink.

There is also an impressive entertainment lineup in place for this Mighty Festival. In addition to the Irish dancers from Raglan Road, several musical artists will be performing over the coming days leading up to St. Patrick’s Day. We even had a brief performance by JigJam, an award-winning quintet from the heart of the Midlands in Ireland.

And of course the main reason you’ll want to stop at Raglan Road is the food. We were able to try a few dishes that will soon be added to the menu. The first was the Smoked Pulled Brisket, which came with caramelized onion mash and charred sweetcorn salsa and served on Irish buttermilk and dubliner cheddar cheese bread. The second was the Salmon Who Salsas, which consists of roast Atlantic salmon fillet on mashed potatoes and celery with a smoked salmon, apple, grape, caper and almond salsa. Both of these dishes were delicious and I can’t wait to come back and eat that brisket again.

A recent addition to the menu, the Now You’re Talkin’ Chicken Sandwich was an absolute hit. Made with buttermilk fried chicken breast, hot sauce, green onions, grated pickle salad, truffle aioli and grated parmesan cheese. Over the past two years, there’s been a lot of talk about who has the best chicken sandwich. We can stop the search, because that’s it.

And finally, a less recent addition to the menu is This Shepherd Went Vegan, a vegan version of a classic Shepherd’s Pie. Made with carrots, wild mushrooms, scallions, peas and rutabaga and topped with olive oil mashed potatoes with a burnt onion sauce, this dish feels like a home-cooked meal. .

We were also treated to a few surprises which are not yet on the menu at Raglan Road but which should be added later this year. These beef and chicken filled savory donuts were confusing in the best possible way. These would make go-to finger foods if and when added to the menu.

The Mighty Festival is a great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Walt Disney World. Raglan Road has an amazing menu year round and is one of my favorite restaurants in Disney Springs. During the Mighty Festival, it’s also an amazing party.
