Recently, we’ve seen reopening dates for Cape May Cafe at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, and we’ve got word on Tusker House Restaurant reopening at Disney’s Animal Kingdom soon. But today, we were present for the reopening of a snack spot at Disney World!
This past week, we were especially thrilled to see Festival of the Lion King return to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in a soft opening before it’s official reopening on May 15th! (Guess what? You can watch it from home if you can’t make it to the park tomorrow – find out how HERE!) And now we’re seeing signs of another spot reopening in the park soon… [Read more…]
If you’ve walked the boardwalk around Disney World’s Boardwalk Inn resort recently you may have noticed there was some work being done on the Boardwalk Pizza Window located outside Trattoria al Forno. We now know the menu was being updated!
The location now offers a broader menu with more pizza choices – in a personal size or a whole pie, as well as sub sandwiches, new salads and desserts. [Read more…]
Pixar Fest kicks off all over Disneyland Resort on Friday — and things are starting to look different in more ways than one. Take Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland, for instance. The Counter Service spot is undergoing a transformation — also known as an overlay — for the duration of Pixar Fest as it becomes Alien Pizza Planet, themed for Pixar’s Toy Story!
The little green men are taking over, and we’d love to give you a look at what they’re serving. And we’ll start, of course, with PIZZA!!
This coming Friday, February 9th, is National Pizza Day. And what better way to celebrate than with a slice at Pizza Ponte — the newest pizza joint in Disney Springs?
Well, I’ll tell you an even better way… how about with a FREE slice of Sicilian pizza at Pizza Ponte?! From 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Friday you can grab a square slice of either Four Cheese or Pepperoni Pizza for free with the purchase of a cold beverage! [Read more…]
Pizza by the slice — and more! — is, at long last, available in Disney Springs thanks to the arrival of Pizza Ponte!
As one third of a trio of eateries in Disney Springs, Pizza Ponte provides a fast-casual option for guests hoping to try out the Italian cuisine offered by this new group of restaurants headed by the Patina Restaurant Group. Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante (a table service restaurant) and Enzo’s Hideaway Tunnel Bar will make up the other components of the group when they open in coming weeks.
By the name, you obviously know that the headliner item is PIZZA — more specifically, Sicilian pizza served by the slice. But sandwiches, pastries, and espresso also make up the menu.
But I’ve said the word “pizza” enough by now that I’m sure everyone’s more than ready to dig into a slice, so let’s start our tour now!
Pizza Ponte is the starting point of the greater story of the business ventures of Maria and Enzo. You’ll find the new locations in The Landing, with nearest landmarks being STK Orlando and Paradiso 37 (and, of course, the VERY soon-to-be-open Edison).
In fact, you’ll enter Pizza Ponte under the sign for Maria and Enzo’s Ristorante, under the simple label of “Pizzeria.” [Read more…]
A couple of fun pieces of food news have come out of the Disney World grapevine this weekend!
For the Pizza Lover…
Interesting news from the Disney Parks facebook page:
Now through January 7, you can enjoy Sicilian-style Margherita pizza by the slice at a pick-up podium at Via Napoli. An a la carte single-serving dessert and fountain beverage will also be available.
So, for all of us who’ve been hoping for a counter-service pizza window at Via Napoli, maybe this is a promising start! Sounds like this is another antidote to the “heavy crowds” of the holidays like we saw over [Read more…]
We’re back with another Disney World and Disneyland comparison! Every Wednesday in May, Main Street Gazette and Disney Food Blog are reviewing back-to-back, mirror image foodie havens in the Florida and California parks. Whether you’re headed to the East coast or the West, we’ve got your Disney Food needs covered!
Today, I’ll be checking out Disneyland’s Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port, and Main Street Gazette will be taking a look at Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ Pizza Planet.
Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port is a counter-service location in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland, offering pizza by the pie or slice, salads, and pasta dishes. Built in the space previously inhabited by Flight to the Moon and Mission to Mars, the restaurant carries a space port theme and provides a great spot to grab a bite after numerous flights on Space Mountain.
Redd Rockett’s is set up in a cafeteria style. You can head to the Salad Station, the Pizza Station, or the Pasta Station to order and receive the dishes [Read more…]
