There’s a New CONTROVERSIAL Take on Disney World Pizza and I Need to Know If You Agree

There are TONS of food options around Disney World, and many of them offer pizza by the slice or by the pie.

mmm… pizza

Now, there are some GREAT pizza places all around Disney World. The resorts, the parks, and Disney Springs offer a wide variety of options. While a lot of them are delicious, we’ve had a few that have missed the mark. But there is one new take on some pizza in EPCOT from one of our readers that we were not prepared for.

When we think about pizza in EPCOT our minds immediately go to the Italy pavilion. There are one, sometimes two, spots that serve up some fantastic pizza. Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria is a sit-down restaurant that specializes in pizza, among other Italian specialties (but we go for the pizza).

Via Napoli

At Via Napoli, you’ll find a wide array of specialty pizzas that hit the mark. You can get individual, large (serves 2-3), or mezzo metro (serves 3-4) sized pizzas. There are a vast amount of topping options for the thin-crust pizzas, and you’re likely to find something you like. However, the downside is that it can be a little pricey.

The second pizza location in the Italy pavilion we were referring to is the pizza window next to Via Napoli, Pizza al Taglio. You can get Sicilian-style slices (square, thick crust) at this quick-service window but only when it’s open (which isn’t all the time). This window opens seasonally, so we wouldn’t always bank on it being an option if you desperately want some pizza.

While these are typically our go-to places for pizza in EPCOT, a reader left a review for Connections Eatery that got us thinking. They said that they had pizza at Connections and they thought it was BETTER than the pizza in the Italy pavilion! We had not heard this take before, but they might have a point. They shared that the pizza was good, and filling, AND it was a “decent price.”

Connections Eatery

Now, at Connections Eatery you only have three options of pizza — Margherita Pizza, Pepperoni Pizza, and Cheese Pizza. This differs considerably compared to Via Napoli where you’ll find many more options. But if you’re just looking for a good, basic pizza, then we can totally see how this could be a better option! Here you get two slices of whichever flavor you choose, instead of a variety of sizes.

If you’re not in EPCOT and are in the mood for some good pizza, there are several other options!

Disney Springs

Pizza Ponte

Pizza Ponte is connected to Maria & Enzo’s, and they serve some GIANT slices of pizza there. They also have other options like Italian sandwiches and pastries.

Pizza Ponte

You’ll find slices the size of your head with a variety of toppings. The pizza typically has a thicker crust and may be served as squares or New York-style slices. The pizza here is really good!

Disney Resorts

Pizza Window at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn

The Pizza Window at Disney’s BoardWalk resort is a walk-up pizza spot that is open daily from 12PM to 12AM. It serves super slices of pepperoni or cheese pizzas along with several specialty drink options.

Animal Kingdom


Of course, you can rely on Pizzafari for some good, old-fashioned pizza! While the food here is hit or miss, the pizza is generally pretty good.

Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza

It’s puffy pizza which you either love or can live without. But if you gotta have some pizza, it’s definitely an option for you!

Magic Kingdom

Pinocchio Village Haus

In Magic Kingdom, you can grab some flatbread at Pinocchio Village Haus, which are essentially just rectangular pizzas. These thin-crust varieties are pretty filling!

Pepperoni Flatbread

They have a few different options of flatbread here and occasionally have rotating specialty ones available as well.

Hollywood Studios


Okay, so PizzeRizzo isn’t our favorite pizza joint in Disney World, but if you’re in Hollywood Studios and want to grab some pie, it can hit the spot.

Veggie Pizza at PizzeRizzo

This pizza is pretty similar to Pizzafari at Animal Kingdom. It’s of the puffy variety. But there are lots of toppings stacked on the pizza, which we enjoy!

So there you have it! All the pizza you can ask for and then some. There are some hit-and-miss pizza joints around Disney World, but the good ones (like Via Napoli and Connections Eatery) are definitely worth the stop!

  1. Via Napoli does NOT have gluten free pizza and it is ridiculous since all they need is a separate silver pan or several to cook on and a good gluten free crust and supervision OR a separate area to make them, since they are not ordered to often it is manageable if they wanted to.

    I wish they would and they only had pasta so my whole family skipped it because of me……………..something for them to think about as other families will do the same.

  2. Overrated! Via Napoli was once our families must do. However, just not the same the last few visits. Service was always average at best but pizza quality would make up for it. Last time we went the pepperoni’s were changed to cheaper chain like quality, next to no sauce, did not even give us parmesan to sprinkle and service was just as bad as ever. Price is just short of criminal.

  3. Do any of these offer Gluten Free Pizza? On a recent visit to Universal City Walk, Red Oven Pizza had a good GF pizza and without an “upcharge” for the GF crust!
