Any new TIW festivities?


For awhile, I was getting just about monthly emails from TIW on foodie events.
Haven’t seen any for what seems forever. Am I off the list, or haven’t there been any. My TIW card is still functioning, so I’m not sure.



I just got this 20 minutes ago:

DOWNTOWN DISNEY — Pleasure Island

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

7 p.m. Reception. 7:30 p.m. Dinner

Dress code is Casual Evening Attire

Master Chef Kevin Dundon is delighted to bring a taste of modern Irish cuisine to DOWNTOWN DISNEY in the form of Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant. Chef Kevin is also chef/proprietor of the 5-star Dunbrody House Hotel & Cookery School in Wexford, Ireland and brings his philosophy on great food to the menu at Raglan Road.

Join Chef Kevin for a very unique dining experience in the beautiful surrounds of the Raglan Room. This oak-paneled room was built using original woods from an old Georgian mansion in Dublin. Throughout the restaurant you will find antique furnishings, grand fixtures, marble adornments, leaded glass, and ornate detailing. The entire pub was built in Ireland then shipped to Orlando.

The menu is inspired by the best of traditional Irish cuisines, using the finest quality ingredients with delicate complementary flavors to create remarkable dishes served with a stylish twist.

Chef Kevin will give a detailed description of each dish on the menu before you decide which wonderful option to choose. Guest will also be treated to a complimentary signed copy of Kevin’s book “Great Family Food.”


Just got it too. We’ll be at WDW 11-14 Apr. I’m trying to talk my wife into changing our days. I’d LOVE to go to one of these.
Thanks for the note.


I’m seriously thinking about the event at The Wave on the 15th myself, but I’m not sure if I can drop $600 for a 3 day/2 night visit right now.
