January 4, was National Spaghetti Day and I can think of no better time to officially welcome three new Italian venues to the neighborhood! Maria & Enzo’s, Enzo’s Hideaway and Pizza Ponte are ready to serve guests at Disney Springs, following the successful New Year’s Eve debut of The Edison.

Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse joined executives from Patina Restaurant Group and Disney Springs to mark the milestone in a special dedication ceremony.

After having had the opportunity to enjoy a test meal at Maria & Enzo’s, I can’t wait to try the others! (Planning your own visit to Maria & Enzo’s? Here’s a tip: order the Chicken Parmesan – Petto di Pollo – it was huge and every bite was more delicious than the one before.)

For more insights on this trio of new locations, check out my previous story on The Disney Parks Blog and keep an eye out for additional details on the menu, coming soon from my fellow author, Alex Dunlap.
