Via Napoli (Italy Pavillion at Epcot) via Disney Parks Blog
Up until this week, our coverage of Via Napoli at the Italy pavilion at Epcot only included descriptions and a rendering. But authors Pam and Gene changed that by taking us inside the new Walt Disney World restaurant – and it’s even better than I’d hoped. The three wood-burning pizza ovens that represent Italy’s active volcanoes (Etna, Vesuvius and Stromboli) also have a Disney touch.
As for the pies, Via Napoli Executive Chef Charlie Restivo shared the secret combo: the oven, the mixer and the ingredients. The mozzarella is flown in from Italy, the water from a source in the U.S. that is similar to the alkaline of the water in Naples and San Marzano tomatoes. The official opening is September 10 and you can start making reservations today – (407-WDW-DINE).
