Erin go Bragh! … and time to celebrate. Of course, Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort is a place to celebrate with family and friends any day of the year, but St. Patrick’s Day is Friday, March 17, and every St. Patrick’s Day brings with it a few special ways to celebrate in the District.
In fact, several Downtown Disney District locations are already in the “wearin’ of the green” spirit – not to mention the drinkin’ and eatin’ of the green. You can follow the rainbow into Sprinkles for Irish Chocolate cupcakes made with Bailey’s Irish Cream, or Green Velvet cupcakes (Sprinkles iconic Red Velvet cupcakes with a green hue), all available through March 31.
Over at Marceline’s Confectionery, there’s a St. Patrick’s Day specialty apple – mouse ears under a leprechaun hat plus green shorts with Mickey’s signature buttons – available through Saturday, March 18.
On Friday, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen offers the traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal of corned beef and cabbage and, if you’re in the mood, a “Pot o’ Gold” concoction of Jameson Irish Whiskey with some secret lucky charms guaranteed to line your pockets with gold.
Jamba Juice makes it easy to get a double dose of green goodness with a special offer – buy one smoothie, get another FREE – Thursday, March 15, through Sunday, March 19. Options include Apple ‘N Greens, Greens ‘N Ginger, Amazing Greens or Matcha Green Tea Blast.
Or, if your taste in green potables runs more to beer, ESPN Zone offers you your choice (any pale beer can be made green) on Friday. Also green on the Zone menu: new grass-fed burgers.
After-dark entertainment for St. Patrick’s Day on the Downtown Disney District stage will be Sligo Rags – Celtic Bluegrass Fusion for All Humanity! As you can see, the Luck of the Irish is all over Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort this week.
