Just in time for the crazy busy holiday rush in Disney World, Pizza Ponte has opened to guests in Disney Springs! Pizza Ponte is one of three Italian eateries connected by setting and story getting set to make their official debuts in Disney Springs. This fast-casual spot (no Advance Dining Reservation required) will be joined shortly by Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante and Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar, with all spots expected to be fully operational in January.
Sicilian pizza served by the slice is the headliner at Pizza Ponte (for $7 a slice), and it’s accompanied by hand-crafted sandwiches on Roman pizza bread and a large variety of desserts including Cannoli and Mascarpone Cheesecake.
Starting in 2018, Pizza Ponte will open at 8AM daily and offer an Italian quick service breakfast including coffee and pastries.
DFB was at Pizza Ponte TODAY to get you a first look! Stay tuned for our full review coming soon, but in the meantime, let’s take a look around!
Inside, Pizza Ponte is clean and modern looking — befitting the airline terminal in which it originated.
There are a few black and whites on the wall to show the Italian family history. I think that’s Maria and Enzo there at the top.
Food is served Cafeteria-style — you go along the line and choose what you like. There are several pizza options featured — both square and triangle (think Sbarro’s) styles.
Desserts and pastries look fresh and authentic.
Overall, we really enjoyed the porchetta pizza we tried — with hot peppers and onions! The crust was perfect and flavors were good.
Stay tuned for our full review coming soon!
And a note for anyone currently visiting on the Disney Dining Plan: the spot is not accepting Dining Plan credits yet. However, it is anticipated that they will be able to accept it in the near future.
With the busiest weeks of the year upon Disney World, we imagine Pizza Ponte is already a very welcome addition to Disney Springs. And we can’t wait to bring you details on our visit soon!
