Good morning, my friends! How did you do on yesterday’s “quiz” questions? Were they too tough? Or, did you “knock them out of the park”?
Well, Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant opened in Pleasure Island in October of 2005. It replaced the Pleasure Island Jazz Company … which, by the way, had already replaced a food court called Merriweather’s Market. Merriweather’s had operated from 1989–1993. The Pleasure Island Jazz Company, true to its name, was a club that featured live jazz musicians.
Oh, and for the record, the other choices were “legit” (once upon a time) Downtown Disney locations, as well. Baton Rouge Lounge and Steerman’s Quarters were subdivisions of The Empress Lilly – an authentic recreation of a 19th-century paddle steamer boat. The Empress Lilly was replaced by Fulton’s Crab House. The Fireworks Factory was a ‘pyrotechnics-themed’ restaurant that operated from 1989–1997. I would have loved to see that one!
Thanks for all your support over the last few days, my friends. Mrs. All in WDW and I have learned quite a few lessons on our journey through Downtown Disney over the last week or so. There’s just so much more there to see, do, and eat than we have, to this point, ever realized. We certainly need to go there and spend some “quality time” as soon as we can!
See you tomorrow!
