    I am taking my son (18) and daughter (11) for his Graduation present. He is autistic, and can get overwhelmed in very loud areas. Are Raglan Rd & Biergarten doing live entertainment right now with the Covid restrictions? If so, what time do they start

    Greetings Rebecca, and welcome back to planDisney! It's great to see you again, and with such a wonderful vacation on the books.

    Walt Disney World is the perfect place to celebrate an accomplishment; my parents planned graduation visits for each one of my siblings and me. During the current phase of reopening, boisterous, live entertainment continues to be part of the dining experience at both Biergarten Restaurant in EPCOT and Raglan Road™ Irish Pub and Restaurant in Disney Springs. 

    At Biergarten Restaurant, the polka band performs intermittently throughout the day at both lunch and dinner, so it would be difficult to avoid the lively oompah tunes. For a more serene dining experience in EPCOT, try the San Angel Inn Restaurante or the Rose & Crown Dining Room (request a patio table). 

    The live entertainment at Raglan Road™ Irish Pub and Restaurant, however, is only scheduled evenings, beginning at 4:30 most days. A full lineup and location details can be found here, on the restaurant's website. If you are looking to dine here, I recommend going for lunch, before the sounds become overwhelming. Keep in mind that weekend brunches also involve live music, so it might be best to avoid Saturdays and Sundays altogether. My family likes to visit Disney Springs on our departure day so we can enjoy one last Disney meal and shop for souvenEARs at the World of Disney®. So long as your departure day isn't a weekend, this might work out for you too! 

    Rebecca, I hope everything is magical on your upcoming trip. No matter where you dine, I suggest requesting a table in the quietest section of any restaurant. I find that Cast Members are always accommodating, especially when Guests have special needs or sensitivities. I think you will see that physical distancing measures decrease the overall level of noise and activity in all locations. Best wishes for a wonderful vacation, and if there is anything else we can do as your adventure approaches, come see us anytime. 

    Have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
