They say life is a combination of magic and pasta.
Luckily, you can find both magic and pasta all over Walt Disney World.
In honor of National Spaghetti Day (yeah, it’s a thing: January 4, 2020), we’re taking a look at this staple traditional Italian cuisine. Whether you twirl it or slurp it, our list features some classic preparations of the beloved carb as well as some creative presentations.
Ohhhh, the endless pasta-bilities!
Here’s our list of seven spots to celebrate National Spaghetti Day at Walt Disney World.
Tony’s Town Square
The “Lady and The Tramp”-inspired table service spot in Magic Kingdom, Tony’s Town Square is offering pair of classic takes on spaghetti; guests can order their noodles with hand-rolled pork-beef meatballs or Italian sausage.
They use freshly made thin spaghetti and the restaurant’s signature Tony’s Marinara Sauce.
Enzo’s Hideaway- Italian Restaurant and Speakeasy
Here, they are serving a traditional bolognese dish that features braised meat sauce, and parmigiano-reggiano.
Topolino’s Terrace- Flavors of the Riviera
While you won’t find spaghetti (yet), they are offering up gourmet interpretations of rigatoni, bucatini, linguine, and herb fettucine dishes, so we’re going to let the spaghetti slide this time.
Trattoria al Forno
As you’re strolling down the bustling promenade of Disney’s BoardWalk, you’ll discover the casual Italian eatery Trattorio al Forno. The menu is a celebration of old world favorites with modern takes on classic dishes.
A favorite here is their Pasta alla Carbonara. This dish features fresh pasta with local organic egg, pancetta, and parmesan.
Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria
Tucked in the back of Epcot’s World Showcase Italy Pavilion, you’ll find the family favorite Italian restaurant, Via Napoli.
While they do offer a classic Spaghetti and Meatball dish for all you purists out there, our must-get here is their Fettuccine Via Napoli. It features mushrooms, prosciutto, and your choice of shrimp or chicken.
Ravello Italian Restaurant
Located in the swanky Four Season Resort Orlando, Ravello Italian Restaurant is serving regionally inspired dishes that include a selection of handmade pastas on display.
They serve classics like Homemade spaghetti with San Marzano tomatoes and crunchy basil as well as offering a rotating menu of specialty pastas. A recent favorite of ours included their Shrimp Strozzapreti which featured spinach noodles.
While this may not be a traditional preparation for spaghetti, their Teriyaki Noodles have an almost cult-like following. Combining the sweetness of pineapple juice with the tang of rice vinegar, these babies are seriously addicting.
Tomorrow is the big day — how will you CARB UP for National Spaghetti Day at Walt Disney World?
