It’s St. Patrick’s Day! And if you’re in the Orlando, FL, area today, you can head over to Disney World‘s Downtown Disney where you can take part in the area’s The Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival.
The event, which began on March 7th and will last through the end of St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), involves lots of Irish food, drinks, and live entertainment, along with St. Patty’s Day-themed and inspired collectibles, apparel, jewelry, and more. Also, there’s a Mighty Family Fun Zone presented by Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted from 12pm-9pm over at Downtown Disney West Side, where you can take special Muppets-themed photos, learn how to draw some of your favorite Muppets characters, and take part in games, giveaways, DJ dance parties, and more. (Look for the special Muppets Rice Crispy Treats at the Downtown Disney Food Trucks.)
There is no admission fee to enter Disney World’s Downtown Disney, so you can just head on in and enjoy the festive atmosphere even if you don’t want to spend anything.
