Red Oven Pizza Bakery - Universal CityWalk

Are you looking for a quick lunch or dinner with a fabulous homemade taste? Then you need to try Red Oven Pizza Bakery located in Universal CityWalk at Universal Orlando.  In the words of my teenage daughter the pizza “IS AMAZING!”  


With the convenient carry out window you can take your pizza to go or you can choose to eat in the outside dining area. You can sit anywhere and they will bring out your fresh made pizza or salad. While the seating is outside, there is a covered roof with ceiling fans to provide shade and a small breeze. Perfect for those sunny summer days. 
A variety of Red and White pizzas are offered.  (For those who don't know, Red pizza has marinara sauce and White pizza has no sauce but may have a layer of olive oil and seasonings.) There are 3 different salads available including a Classic Caesar, Arugula, and Caprese salad. The salads are large; approximately a 12-inch plate covered 4 or 5 inches high. We did not actually order a salad but the table next to us did and it was big enough to share.  Your drink options include soda, carbonated juice, ice teas, water, beer and wine. The carbonated juices are very refreshing and the fountain drinks are refillable (all options are subject to change).

Red Oven Pizza Bakery opens at 10:30 am and closes between 12 am to 1:30 am depending on the day (hours subject to change). We ate  lunch on more than one occasion and waited about 10 minutes to receive our hot, fresh cooked pizza.  When we thought about going around 9 pm the place was filled and the line was out the door. 

Every pizza is made fresh when you order it. The quality of ingredients are what make these pizzas so wonderful. Filtered Water, Organic Olive Oil, San Mazzone Tomatoes, “00” flour and Buffalo Mozzarella. The Buffalo Mozzarella cheese adds a wonderful flavor and is creamy and stringy just like the mozzarella we are used to eating. The “00” flour means the texture of the flour is extremely fine, this gives the pizza a wonderful crunch with little elasticity. The pizza is cooked in a 900 degree stone lined oven so it does not have the char on the bottom but it comes out a beautiful golden brown. All pizzas are served the same size, 12 inches and 6 slices. You can watch them make your pizza in the open kitchen.


We tried the Big Eye Pepperoni pizza which has large sandwich size pepperoni that cover the entire pizza and the Margherita pizza had so many chunks of San Mazzone tomatoes you got one in each bite; with the tangy taste of the basil it was fantastic!

In my opinion, this is the best place in CityWalk to get a pizza. What's your favorite place to get a slice?

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
