Is it worth it? YES! Via Napoli has become my favorite restaurant on WDW Property!!!! It's AMAZING.


Sorry if this is off topic, but my grandma is good friends with the owner of the Patina Group group. I love the Naples restaurant at Downtown Disney and am so glad one has come to Disney World as well.

On Topic: The burgers look like an improvement. I wonder how they'll do however.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Maybe it is worth it considering this is as close as you're going to get to Neapolitan pizza without spending $1,000+ to fly to Italy. Besides, Naples tends to offend the delicate sensibilities of 99% of travelers. Don't like huge piles of trash all over the streets?

Then stick to the WDW version of the pizza.

YES!!! I was blown away by this place when we went there in October. I might like Yak & Yeti a little more, but Napoli's is a must visit restaurant on any Orlando trip now.

Disney burgers are usually terrible. I'd try one of these, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I think the Disney Blog (Adam can probably verify), stated that it was for the holiday season. Although I could see them ding it year round if it got to be popular enough.

I really like every Patina Group restaurant we've tried. We even used two of them on our TPR West Coast trip in 2009.

Now back to the burgers...yeah, still mad about the whole wheat bun thing!

Delicious & Refreshing

^^I'm pretty sure that they were just doing it for the busy season. The setup looked to be pretty makeshift for what it was, so while I certainly think it could be a more permanent offering down the road, the current setup felt more like a Food & Wine Festival stand just in the corner of the restaurant's open doors.

I agree with elissa, wheat bread is the "bad tasting diet soda" of breads.

Disney released their final plans for the Fantasyland Expansion...finally!
Disney World’s Fantasyland expansion
Largest expansion in Magic Kingdom History

Updated: Tuesday, 18 Jan 2011, 11:58 AM EST
Published : Tuesday, 18 Jan 2011, 7:17 AM EST

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Walt Disney World released artist renderings of the expansion of Fantasyland Tuesday. The project is the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history. More details will be released tonight during a media event.

Photo Gallery: See the artist renderings

The project which is currently under construction will include a new home for The Little Mermaid Ariel, new ways to interact with favorite Disney princesses, an exciting new family coaster, a double dose of Dumbo and more.

It will open in phases beginning in late 2012.

Among the highlights planned:
Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid
-a major, all-new attraction during which guests will travel with Ariel and her friends through their exciting adventures above and below the waves – all against a musical backdrop of songs from the classic film.

The castle of the Beast
-Standing majestically upon a hill just across an old stone bridge from Ariel’s new home. The Be Our Guest Restaurant will feature a lavish dining experience in the elegant ballroom, gallery, and mysterious “West Wing” of the castle. With seating for 550, this magnificent facility will offer “great food fast” service by day and full table service dining in the evening. Nearby in Belle's Village, guests will find the rousing Gaston’s Tavern and Bonjour! Village Gifts.
Just outside the village is Belle’s cottage and Enchanted Tales with Belle. The adventure begins in Maurice’s workshop, where a magical mirror is the doorway to a captivating new kind of storytelling experience: Guests are transported to the Beast’s library to meet Belle and Lumiere, and share in a lively, interactive, re-telling of the “tale as old as time.”

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
-it will take guests on a rollicking, musical ride into the mine “where a million diamonds shine.” The coaster will feature a first-of-its kind ride system with a train of ride vehicles that swing back and forth, responding to every twist and turn of the track. The journey will be accompanied by music from the classic Disney film and animated figures of Snow White and the Dwarfs.

Princess Fairytale Hall
-Aurora, Cinderella and other Disney princesses, such as Tiana and Rapunzel, will greet guests in their new home, an elegant royal court on the site where Snow White’s Scary Adventures stands today.

The sound of the calliope
-This will lead guests to the brand new Storybook Circus and not one but two circling carousels of airborne pachyderms on Dumbo the Flying Elephant. Before taking to the skies on this Fantasyland favorite, guests can experience an array of fun-filled family games and interactive wonders for kids of all ages inside the Big Top.

Storybook Circus
-the classic Barnstormer gets a bright new look as well, featuring Goofy as The Great Goofini. It’s a twisting, turning roller coaster “flight” high above the circus fun.

so the 7 Dwarfs Mine Ride is official now ? I honestly had almost no interest in this project but now with that ride I have a little interest. We'll see how it turns out but sound like it could be a pretty interesting family attraction.
