Walt Disney World Announces New Dining Locations for Disney Springs

We always love when we have more dining locations to experience at Walt Disney World, so we are definitely looking forward to these amazing new locations that have been announced.  The new locations that have been confirmed are Maria & Enzo’s, Enzo’s Hideaway and Pizza Ponte. The locations are all set to open at Disney Springs.  They are also new concepts and themes that are created by Patina Restaurant Group, the creators of some of the other newer dining locations in Walt Disney World.

Here is what Nick Valenti, CEO of Patina Restaurant Group had to say about the new additions:

“I’m delighted to announce that we will be opening a trattoria named Maria & Enzo’s, as well as Enzo’s Hideaway, a separate restaurant in what were said to be rum-running tunnels, which is destined to become a local favorite. They are inspired by the cuisines of Sicily and Rome, the Italian family, and the best of Italian modern cooking.”  He went on to say, “Our inspiration is to bring unforgettable food and wine from Italy to Florida, with the stunning scenery you only find at Disney.”

Here is what we know about each of the locations thus far:

Maria & Enzo’s: The location is an Italian trattoria that is set in a 1930’s abandoned airline terminal that was turned into a restaurant.  There will be references to flying and flights throughout the decor of the restaurant, too.  The menu is derived from Sicilian flavors and dishes.

Enzo’s Hideaway: This is a speakeasy location that will be located with Maria & Enzo’s.  This is a prohibition-era themed bar and will serve as the expansive lounge area for the restaurant.  There will be an amazing drink selection along with a casual menu of bites that guests will be able to enjoy.

Pizza Ponte: This location will offer fast-casual type of dining with a Sicilian theme, where guests will be able to get quick meals that include items like pastries, sandwiches, pizzas, coffees, etc.

We are so excited to learn that all three of the new locations are expected to open at some point during the winter months at Disney Springs.  We don’t have any other details than that at this time, but we will provide updates as soon as we have them.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
