Different Poll … Same Result! The Watercraft Rule!

Well, that’s enough of Disney Springs dining for a while, don’t you think, my friends?  It sure was fun, though.  In the end, however, not even the mighty Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant could best the boats.

Two different polls on two different ‘days’ … same exact result.  The BOATHOUSE is our overwhelming choice.  It is the place to be!

Like I said at the beginning of this little voting journey, “One of the things I truly love about Disney Dining as a topic is that, no matter what particular venue or menu item is under discussion, anyone can have a different opinion.”

Likewise, everyone can have a favorite.  Everyone can have a restaurant that they long to try.  “The morale of the story?  Someone else’s favorite might not end up being yours.  And, yours might not end up being theirs!”

I’ll end by quoting one of our readers – Rob – who commented, “#StandWithTheBoathouse”.  As a group, you certainly did.  Twice!  Congratulations, Boathouse.  You’ve successfully won over the fans!

Good morning, folks!  Have you had your fill of Disney Springs dining?  No?  That’s great!  If you haven’t voted yet, our poll is still open at …

It’s a BIG Disney Springs “Showdown”! Another Chance to VOTE!

In the meantime, please catch our latest show!  Doug, Dennis and John gather together at the WDW Main Street Pub to discuss which Disney Springs venue is the Most Enticing New Restaurant!

WDW Main Street – Episode #357 – Dining at Disney Springs!

It’s a BIG Disney Springs “Showdown”! Another Chance to VOTE!

Just when you thought we were done with Disney Springs dining … its back again!  Oh, come on.  You know you love it!

Hey!  I couldn’t resist the opportunity to ask you a question that’s been burning in my mind since the last time Mrs. All in WDW and I visited Orlando.  What is it, you ask?

Well, we just completed a “survey” that placed The BOATHOUSE, Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’, Morimoto Asia, and Paddlefish as our new “downtown darlings”.

How do they stack up to “The Icon” of Disney Springs?  Huh?  Icon?  My friends, there’s one restaurant that is always packed beyond belief.

Folks?  This poll is simply Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant against … the best of the “newbies”!  You’ve got one choice.  Which venue do you love?  Where do you want to go?  VOTE!

Menu Update: Brunch at Raglan Road!

One of these days, Mrs. All in WDW and I are going to give Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant another chance.  If you remember back, our first visit didn’t meet with much success.

An insanely popular spot, it’s worth our time, I know.  The problem is … there’s so much competition in Disney Springs now! Morimoto Asia.  Chef Art Smith’s Homecoming.  Frontera Cocina.  The Boathouse!

Of course, one thing that might draw us in is Raglan’s Brunch.  From oatmeal and pancakes to bangers and roast beef, there’s a lot of everything on the menu!

Folks, have you stopped by Raglan Road for a meal?  What are your thoughts?  How does Raglan compare to the new venues opening up in Disney Springs?  Let us know!

Celtic Cuisine Reigns Supreme!

Wow!  The culinary kingdom of Celtic cuisine will just not be denied.  In the face of new, and very strong, competition, Disney Springs’ Irish eatery triumphs … once again!

Yes, my friends, it was a slim victory, but we have a winner!  Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant is the 2016 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite Disney Springs Table Service!

Although they took valiant shots, two rookies – “The Boathouse Amphicars” and “Morimoto Asia Iron Chefs” – were, ultimately, no match for Raglan’s “Celtic Thunder”.

Great new restaurants, both of them, but they just didn’t have enough support – this early in their “lives” – to topple the Irish pub that’s long-been a Walt Disney World fan favorite.

Interestingly, as you’ll see in a minute, Raglan is followed in our Top 10 by Disney Springs’ four newest venues.  Clearly, stout competition has already arrived.  With STK Orlando on the horizon, it’ll get tougher yet!

For my part, how did I rank yesterday’s twelve competitors?  Well, like this …

  1. The BOATHOUSE
  2. Splitsville
  3. Morimoto Asia
  4. Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant
  5. Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe
  6. House of Blues
  7. Paradiso 37, Taste of the Americas
  8. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
  9. Portobello Country Italian Trattoria
  10. T-REX
  11. Rainforest Cafe at Disney Springs Marketplace
  12. Bongos Cuban Café
