Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room:

A full-service restaurant, the Rose and Crown Pub offers guests both lunch and dinner. Diners can order bangers and mash, fish and chips, burgers, steaks, Yorkshire pudding, potato and leek soup, and a variety of ales, stouts and whiskeys.  **hint** Their steaks are amazing!  The inside has a pub feel and sometimes “The Hat Lady” will perform on the piano.  It’s always fun to eat in the pub area, but it can be loud.  If you prefer a quieter area there’s the  outside tables overlook the lagoon.  Live music acts sometimes perform on a stage in the back.

Disney is as much a part of my childhood as hiking in the woods and riding my bike with my siblings. From watching The Disney Channel to taking semi-annual WDW vacations, my family was all about the mouse. Now, I'm a mom, teacher, and avid gamer who's excited to share this staple of my childhood with all of you. :)
