Catching up with Central Florida Weekend, Day 3: Sunday Brunch at Disney Springs

We woke up so stiff and exhausted, we decided a Disney treat was in order. We thought we might head on over to Geyser Point for lunch after church, but we were a bit early so we thought we’d kill some time at Disney Springs.

By the time we parked and walked around, we were so caught up in the Disney Springs fun, we decided to stay for lunch. We already have ressies at The Boathouse and Homecoming for summer celebrations later this summer, so Raglan Road with its dark, cool interior was beckoning. It was one of our favorite hangouts when we lived in Windermere and when Rich noticed a sign for “Brunch,” well, we couldn’t resist.

We were seated in the Music Room and I enjoyed photos on the wall of musicians and the music coming from the speakers. I felt in touch with my Irish ancestry and musical family – the music room was the perfect room for us.

Jose, our server, introduced himself and the special of the day, which was Salmon and Waffle. When Rich heard that, he put down his menu and ordered one of those. I chose one of my favorites, breakfast potatoes with eggs, but this time pork belly was added, which I must say right now, was absolutely awesome!!!

We were undecided about drinks – I was still feeling the drinks from the previous two days, but we couldn’t resist so Rich ordered the Bloody Mary and I had the G&T (Gin & Tonic) with a grapefruit twist – seemed to be my fruit this weekend.

The drinks were a good choice as were our brunch items. We were also served some sort of smoothie and some brown bread. After brunch, we stopped in at Sprinkles and got a couple of cupcakes – Salted Caramel and the Red Velvet, which we’d first tried at Sprinkles at Disneyland, which we took home to enjoy later.

All in all, we were absolutely in love with this brunch experience – the food (Rich was pounding his fist on the table in pure ecstasy), the drinks, the service, the atmosphere, the fun, the company – I could definitely do this every Sunday!

One of the songs we heard was the Hills of Donegal, and we cracked up over the Las Vegas references, etc. I felt so at home. Yes, I could definitely do this every Sunday! (Video preview here.)
