NEWS: Two More Restaurants Will Open in EPCOT’s Italy Pavilion in Disney World

Walt Disney World’s theme parks will officially reopen on July 11th and July 15th, but we’ve already had the chance to stop by some of our favorite restaurants in Magic Kingdom and cool off with a drink or two in Disney’s Animal Kingdom during Passholder Previews this week.


We previously reported on all the restaurants that had been announced to reopen when the theme parks do, but Disney keeps updating and changing which table-service and quick-service locations will be back again.

Now, we’re happy to announce that we’ve just learned that EPCOT’s Italy Pavilion will be saying “Ciao!” to two more of its restaurants when EPCOT reopens next week! Tutto Italia and Tutto Gusto will both be joining Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria and the pavilion’s Italian gelato kiosk, Gelati, in opening on July 15th.

The restaurants will have limited hours and menus during the initial reopening. However, we expect that the food will be just as good! The currently listed hours for Italy’s restaurants are:

Gelati’s hours have not been posted but we’ll keep you updated when we spot them!

We think this is a cause for celebration (in other words, plenty of pizza, pasta, and gelato!)!

EPCOT’s reopening will bring with it new Character Cavalcades and returning attractions, and this years’s EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. And, we’ll be taking you with us LIVE when we head back to the park next week!

This is what quick-service dining is like in a newly re-opened Disney World!
