That's awesome! Too cool they were able to put together a Mickey, too. I love these behind the scenes/non park Disney updates.

I'm a Universal type of guy but it looks like I need to make a trip to Disney Springs for some great food! All of it looks good, it would be hard just picking one place to eat! Do most serve tapas style dishes?

^ The first time I went to Disney Springs I didn't get it at all and brushed it off as a glorified shopping mall that was only busy because they slapped the Disney name on it but ever since the place has won us over to the point where we end up there almost nightly during our Orlando vacations. It's a REALLY cool place.

They keep building awesome new restaurants, the whole complex is incredible looking and they've managed to keep the stereotypical tourist trap staples from totally taking over the place (which has sort of happened with Citywalk). Sure they have a few (cough, Rainforest cafe) but they're few and far between.

I never go to Citywalk unless I'm at the Universal parks. It's too much of a pain in the ass with the parking garage, endless airport style walkways and TSA style security check and Disney Springs is better anyway.

Once you come over to the dark side you'll be hooked. :lol:

Tonight Theme Park Review was hosted by Maria & Enzo's for a special Pasta Palooza dinner as the restaurant select summer pasta dishes over the next three months. All of these dishes are featured year round at the restaurant, but by shining a spotlight on these wonderful menu items, we were able to learn about their preparation before indulging in their tastes, with a few other samplers along the way.

Tonight's pasta of note was the house Lasagna Verde, a spinach lasagna that was rich, indulgent and more than filling. Along the way we also tried several appetizers, prosecco and an out of this world dessert.

There's no shortage of dining options at Disney Springs, but Maria & Enzo's has managed to more than hold its own despite the surrounding variety. Top notch Italian food from the same chefs that have made Via Napoli in Epcot so great makes this restaurant a winner. If you're a lover of pasta, cheese or Italian food (or any combination of the above), Maria & Enzo's will meet that need and then some!

It's become more than just our "new favorite" restaurant at Walt Disney World. As a fan of Italian food, it's a "staple" for us now. Between this restaurant, their Via Napoli restaurant at Epcot, and even the Pizza Ponte quick-service pizza location at Springs, I seriously don't really need to eat many other places at WDW! :lol: :p

EDIT: And I should mention I cannot wait to get back to their Naples restaurant at Disneyland in California at the end of the month!
