Maria and Enzo's Brunch Review

Yum!
I am personally a huge brunch fan, so when I saw that Maria and Enzo's had a Sunday Brunch menu, I knew I had to give it a try!  

Maria and Enzo's is located at Disney Springs, making it the perfect stop for our last day when we didn't want to get park tickets prior to heading to the airport.  The brunch menu is available Sundays from 10:00 AM - 1:30 PM and offers a range of breakfast and lunch appetizers, entrees, desserts and of course, beverages.

The restaurant itself has an interesting theme, as the decor is reminiscent of an old airport of times past.  The big open space was beautiful although relatively empty when we dined.  We did have to go down the stairs into the dining room, but there is an elevator available for anyone with mobility issues.

Once everyone arrived and we were settled in, we started by ordering some brunch beverages (because otherwise isn't it just lunch?) and our server brought a bread basket which had both breakfast pastries including chocolate croissants, plain croissants and blueberry muffins, and Italian bread.  We may or may not have had this basket filled a few times, these carbs were delightful!  The Specialty Sparkling Flight was also a big hit.  All three combinations were a refreshing take on the classic mimosa and were light and fresh.

Since it was our last Disney meal of the trip, we decided to split some appetizers to start the meal.   I can never turn down a meatball, so of course I ordered some of those.  The whipped ricotta with the hearty meatballs was a delightful pairing. We also went with the arancini which is a classic Italian appetizer and did not disappoint either.
Polpettine: Maria's family recipe - Braised Meatballs, Whipped Ricotta, Parmigiano-Reggiano
Arancini: Lightly Fried Rice Croquettes, Italian Sausage Ragù, Fior di Latte Mozzarella
Not surprising, after the delicious bread basket and appetizers, we were already starting to get full before our entrees even came!  However, that didn't stop us from digging in when they arrived. Most of us chose to go with lunch items, but the eggs they made were DIVINE.  If I were to go back, I would probably get more brunch-focused items since the others are more likely to be a part of the regular menu.

Torchio al Pollo: Spiral-shaped Pasta, Roasted Chicken Ragù, Toasted Garlic, Parmesan Cream Sauce
Spaghetti alla Chitarra con Polpette: Thick-cut Pasta, Marinara Sauce, Maria's family recipe Meatballs, Calabrian, Chili, Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Rigatoni alle Verdure: Roasted Eggplant, Zucchini, Roasted Tomatoes, Toasted Almonds, Basil, Parmigiano-ReggianoItalian Breakfast Board: Soft Parmesan Cheese Scrambled Eggs, Sweet Italian Sausage, Prosciutto di Parma, Fior di Latte Mozzarella Caprese, Rosemary-Parmesan Fingerling Potatoes, toasted Schiacciata Bread







Ravioli ai Tre Formaggi: Parmigiano-Reggiano, Smoked Pecorino, Fresh Ricotta, Tomato Sauce, Toasted Garlic, Almond Pesto




We were too stuffed by the end to try dessert unfortunately, but overall the food was delicious.  We were a party of 8 dining, and the service was a little on the slow side for our liking, but the food made up for it!  The soft scrambled eggs were a definite favorite along with the torchio al pollo (chicken pasta in a cream sauce).

Have you tried brunch or another meal at Maria and Enzo's? We'd love to hear about your experiences in the comments below!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Local Vendors We Recommend in Orlando

The hottest trend in the ultimate Disney vacation is utilizing local vendors who are/or used to be Disney Cast Members to enhance your trip.  There are a wide variety of services and products you can get from these wonderful people, so we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites that we have personally utilized and would recommend. Charcuterie: Ordering a charcuterie board for your family or party is a great way to enhance an arrival day when you might be a bit snacky or maybe for a pool day at the resort.  It's the perfect snack to munch on throughout the day and makes you feel just a little bit fancy.   Journey Across the Board This is the charcuterie you order to feel bougie and pampered and really elevate your trip.  Their boards are premium and they can be designed and personalized in so many ways. You can even upgrade to include beautiful keepsakes.  What makes them especially great is the ability to suit so many dietary concerns.  They create any food style or allergy from
