According to the Raglan Road website, the Irish Dancing starts at about 5:00 pm and runs until 10:00 pm. There is also a live band that performs at roughly the same time. If you want to see the dancing and the band, you'll need to be seated in the main room. There is a side room (to the left when you enter the main room); but you really won't be able to see much of the dancing or the band if you're seated in there. I don't know if RR will you request a room, but it's something to keep in mind if you really want to (or don't want to) be seated where you can watch the show.

In terms of food, there is a lot of really good items. I like the scallop forest or Calamari City appetizers, the Fish and Chips or Sod the Stew (Guinness beef stew) or Raglan Risotto for entree, and the Jaffa Dunbrody Kiss for dessert. If you like chocolate, the Dunbrody Kiss is awesome!

It seems RR is the most popular DTD eatery on this thread, but I've got a question for any T-Rex fans around here. How does it compare to a Rainforest Cafe? It looks very similar to Rainforest (concept wise) which makes me a little concerned because I am NOT a Rainforest fan. Thoughts?

I really like RR but as this trip is for my dd... We're doing rainforest cafe. If imagine that T. rex is very similar.

Haven't been to a RFC since Arizona about 10 years ago so I'm fine with the chaos. lol

We thought T-Rex (last week) was better than Rainforest (at AK). The setting/theming is much more involved, the meteor shower is really neat. The mushroom ravioli with lobster sauce was amazing. The service was a bit slow, but we weren't in any hurry after scoring a 5:00 walk up at the end of June in the pouring rain. Much preferred to Rainforest.

On my last trip, just this past May, they let us request a room. . We showed up for our ADR, and were brought to that side room, I simply asked if maybe we could get a seat with a view of the stage... They were happy to relocate us, we just waited a few extra minutes... Also, I had the Shepherd's Pie... OMG amazing lol.

Someone mentioned Paradiso 37 - we went there last December and it was good! Some of the best appetizers I've ever had. Only have TS we've been do in DTD is Rainforest Café which is good but "normal" food like burgers and stuff and the atmosphere isn't too special. But the food is good and you leave feeling full.

As for the MK sit downs, Ohana has actually been disappointed the past few meals we've had there so we don't rush there anymore. Had an ok experience at Whispering Canyon. I wasn't a big fan of the menu. Kona Café was good when we went, but its same as other cafes at WDW, simple menus so don't expect fancy food. GF Café same as Kona.

I really think that both Raglan Road and 'Ohana are don't-misses if you have never been. We tried RR on our last trip and I was just kinda "meh" on it but needed a DTD dinner that night, so booked an ADR on a whim. OH MY GOODNESS!! It was incredibly delicious. But it is LOUD... our waiter told us (well, yelled to us) that they have to learn to read lips to work there. Ha, ha. Really fun atmosphere though, and did I mention that the food is amazing?! As for 'Ohana, yeah it's an obvious choice, but it's also very, very yummy, a great spot for Wishes, and you and your sis should have a great time sipping on lapu lapus.

Does anyone have time suggestion to book Ohana? We'd like to watch Wishes from the beach after grabbing some Dole Whips. What time should we try to get an ADR for to have time to do all that?
