Gelateria Toscana Is Open at EPCOT!

Summer is just around the corner, although it feels like it has already arrived at Walt Disney World. What better treat is there to cool off with than ice cream? How about some delicious gelati, or Italian ice cream? You can find that at the brand new Gelateria Toscana at EPCOT, and you’ll find many other tasty treats as well.


I was invited to stop by on May 6 before the official opening at 12:30. The new stand is located in Italy, on the American Adventure side. If there’s music in the America Gardens Theater you will be able to clearly hear it from the new kiosk.

If you’re looking for Gelati, there are several flavors available. Sorbetti is available as well. Order two scoops in a cup or a waffle cone. You could instead try a Gelati Float. There are also Gelati Creations. I tried the Coppa Del Nonno, which featured gelati, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and amaretto cookies. It was as decadent as it sounds. I tried the Mocha Tiramisu as well. There was more cream and less biscuits than the tiramisu that I’ve had in the past, and I liked the change.

If you’re looking to cool off with something other than gelati, beverages are also available. You can order Italian beer or wine. There is also frozen red or white sangria, or maybe you would prefer an Italian Margarita. If you don’t want the alcohol you might want to order Aranciata. It’s an Italian sparkling beverage that is available in orange or lemon. There are also San Benedetto products available. I had the Peach Iced Tea, and it was incredibly refreshing on a hot day.  

Gelateria Toscana is a charming spot, and it fits right in at the Italy Pavilion. Whether you’re looking for a sweet treat or need to rehydrate, this is a great place to stop. Since it is brand new, many people have yet to discover it. I have a feeling that once the word gets out, Gelateria Toscana will be very popular.

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
