Dinner at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant

Standing as strong as its brick exterior throughout the massive construction project bringing Disney Springs to life, Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant has been a rock solid centerpiece of the area now known as "The Landing" since May 2005.

We've all been there. Maybe it happens as soon as you board the not-so-Magical Express to the airport, or maybe it happens as you exit Walt Disney World property and see that very sad sign where Mickey says "See You Real Soon."
